I you know I the first season I play Kind of a fun. Douchebag Guy Steve and he'd meets his demise at the end of it. Yes At the hand of the lovely Christina applegate and I thought that was kind of the end of it. I was in for one season and That was done and then the show became a big hit. And of course I add a little foam. Oh and and I was like on my knees grovelling trying to get my worm my way back into the show so I said Liz feldman an email saying hey is there any. You've been googling seeing if you can survive a traumatic head wound crowning if if that is there room for a this guy like of course. Of course she said No. Thank you very much. Nice try. Yeah and so that she came back and was like you know you actually got me thinking and we were trying to figure out a way you know. Bring you back in. I don't WanNa ruin anything for anybody either but I guess there's enough spoilers out there to at least address you know in what capacity. I come back to. What do you think yes absolutely? Yeah you're your twin. Well the twin brother so we went down to classic soap opera. Trump's which you know admittedly is a little side of this sort of Corny like come on.

Set James Gimme good story from that one. You GotTa story from that one. Yeah I it was just watching those guys do their thing. You know those boys Paul and all the guys From big slick but It was amazing. I mean this is like it's rare that you get that opportunity to be a part of a movie or at least the you know the sequel to a film that inspired you And in the comedy world when you're trying to make it as an actor In Hollywood and then it's GonNa come into anchorman to play with those guys. It's like first of all you better like you know you gotta be gotta be sharp but But it was amazing watching. I mean it was the most laid back it was a party.
