While Kimmel tried to suggest it was ABC execs who wanted to protect the crew and audience from contracting the virus, Samberg told his show host he had other suspicions as to the origin of the Bubble Boy suit request.
"I talked to a couple of ABC execs and they said you wanted it," Samberg said, before listing off the drugs he's currently on to keep his illness at bay. "I'm on all kinds of meds, my head's a little soupy," he admitted. "This feels like a dream!"
Sadly, Samberg didn't have any sneak preview tidbits to share about his Emmy prep. "I've been ill," he said, defensively when Kimmel asked.
"When do you think you will start working on it?" Kimmel persisted.
"Some time in the next couple of months," the comedian joked.
