Called out! While most celebs attempt to pretend Vogue‘s 73 Questions interviews are natural, casual encounters, Seth Meyers opened up his segment with the fashion magazine by telling it like it is.
“You must be that guy who’s gonna ask me 73 questions in an absurdly crafted interview,” the Late Night host, 41, began to the man operating the camera for Vogue.com.
After acknowledging that he was, in fact, orchestrating said interview, the cameraman asked Meyers his 73 questions. During the chat, the Saturday Night Live alum revealed that his favorite board game is Scrabble and he’d like to play it with either his parents Hilary and Larry Meyers or the long-deceased Benjamin Franklin.
The former Weekend Update anchor then spilled that his superpower of choice is the ability to fly, his spirit animal is an otter, his hip-hop stage name is MC Suburbs. Born in the Chicago suburb of Evanston, Ill., Meyers said that the coolest thing about his adopted hometown of New York City is “that interesting people from other cities come here to live.”
One such interesting resident was the late great Joan Rivers, whom Meyers named as the one person, living or dead, that he would like to fill in for him if he called in sick to hosting Late Night. As to his dream lineup for the show, Meyers named “Andy Samberg, a 4-year-old magician, and music from The Hold Steady.”
Before he takes the stage every night in Manhattan, Meyers revealed that he has a simple pre-show ritual. “Every night, I look at that picture of my dog and it make me smile,” he said, adding of the pup, “Her name is Frisbee.”
During the lengthy interview, Meyers goes on to reveal his best friend, his all-time favorite TV show, and the moment he was most nervous before a gig. Find out in the video above!
