Edward Norton Says They Intentionally Made Him Look Small Next To Bill Hader’s Stefon On #SNL40

Edward Norton is 6 feet tall. According to Wikipedia, Bill Hader stands just slightly taller, at 6-foot-1-inch, so why, at #SNL40 during the double Stefon bit on Weekend Update, did Bill Hader appear several inches taller than his Stefon counterpart? Well, as Edward Norton recalled to Jimmy Fallon on last night’s Tonight Show, they actually made him sit on a much shorter stool than Hader’s, intentionally making him out to be a tiny little baby man — as that’s apparently the way comedians “get back at” dramatic actors.

It’s unclear as to how dramatic actors in turn get back at comedians, but I will personally be disappointed if it doesn’t involve some sort of “double decker” situation.

Here’s the Weekend Update sketch featuring both Stefons, in case you missed it:
