‘MacGruber’ came to life mostly because we just liked saying ‘MacGyver.’ ‘MacGyver’ this. ‘MacGyver’ that. It’s a great word.

I grew up in Berkeley and my parents were hippies, obviously, since my name’s ‘Jorma.’ I didn’t watch much television growing up because they weren’t into it at all.

I was just blown away by everything my dad was doing, every play. It was amazing to be able to go as a young person to the theater and see these visuals and how creative it could be. More than anything it was realizing you could do that as a life path.

I went to the doctor recently and she actually prescribed that I go out for ten minutes a day, I’m so depleted on vitamin D.

I’m a little younger than these guys, but I would say all of us are huge fans of the original ‘MacGyver’ series, and obviously we found that inspiration for the original pitch for ‘MacGruber.’

I’m probably the most excited about ‘Turtleneck & Chain.’

It wasn’t until I got ‘SNL’ that my parents told me they were a little bit worried, like that I would have food to eat.

It’s still amazing to me to walk down the halls of ‘SNL.’ You see pictures of the greatest comedians we grew up worshiping, basically. It’s crazy to be able to still work there.

Just the fact that that Europe album ‘The Final Countdown’ came out in 1986 and ‘Rad’ came out in 1986… I’m starting to think that maybe 1986 is my favorite year, of all time!

Justin Timberlake puts you to shame, having that much talent.

Ladies seem very intrigued by a guy who is ultra confident and acts like he doesn’t need you.

Obviously, as the music business has suffered tremendously, with being able to illegally download everything, it’s also become amazingly easy to find new bands, because everyone can put their stuff online. Even if you can’t find a record label, you can find these awesome bands, all over the world.

Something I always admire, especially in female comedians, is that they’re willing to make themselves look terrible.

We did the ‘MacGruber’ Super Bowl spot for Pepsi, which generated some outside interest. We have a sketch where a guy blows up after 90 seconds. How are we going to make that into a movie?

When we came out with ‘Lazy Sunday,’ the greatest compliment I heard was that Questlove had it on his iPod.

When you first see MacGruber working on the bomb, in the initial opening credits, that bomb was a replica of the ‘Die Hard’ bomb. The love runs deep for ’80s action movies.

Why can’t ladies like nice guys?
