WC: Yeah, I think a lot of people were expecting or hoping that you might cameo on SNL when he was on it, but instead it was just your wife, talking very disparagingly about you.

WA: I was in a sketch that was cut after dress [rehearsal].

WC: AUGH. Bitches.

WA: It was actually a very funny sketch. I was briefly in it; I didn't say anything. It was this bogus awards show, and he stands up and hugs Tina -- who was playing his wife, Amanda -- and then turns, and I'm sitting next to him, and I give him a creepy hug, kind of like the creepy hug I gave him at the Golden Globes. Bateman hates the head hug. He hates it when you touch his hair, mess with his beautiful hair.

WC: Well, he's got a lot of hair!

WA: He's got a lot of hair and it's so gorgeous -- and especially at the Globes. His hair was sticking up, I don't know if you saw that. His hair was sticking up because I got my fingers in it.

WC: Nice.

WA: Yeah.

WC: So it was like you were up there with him.

WA: In a way. From moment one, Jason and I really got along so well, and it was apparent that we could just work together really well. And he's such a great, giving performer, he really is, and he's so smart and he's so talented, and our relationship-- I think Mitch and the writers immediately let us play a lot together. And we have such a great time. We really do have so much fun working together.

WC: You mentioned before that you have sisters -- where are you in the hierarchy of your family, and how has that informed how you play GOB?

WA: Well, you know, Jason is so much like a sister to me.

WC: Well, he's touchy about his hair, obviously; that's a little girly.

WA: I have two older sisters who are twins, and I have a younger brother, so I am technically in the middle of four kids, if you follow my logic.

WC: I do.

WA: My sisters are three years older than me, and then we have a brother who is nine and a half years my junior, so there's a big gap. So I was the baby for almost ten years, and my two older sisters ganged up on me.

WC: So when you play GOB, you're really playing them.

WA: Well, yeah. I lived a couple of different existences as a kid. There were the first ten years as the baby, and I was really treated as such, and then all of a sudden, I'm not the baby anymore, and that marked a whole new beginning for me. I wasn't getting all the attention anymore.
