Kristen wiig and bill Hader have teamed up for a new movie. They play twins who reunite after being estranged for ten years. They can help each other heal by confronting the pain and finding the laughter once again. Oh. Give that to me. Give to it me. Spit. Spit in there. Sorry. I thought it was broken. Oh my -- milo, stop! My god. You better have that thing fixed. You need to take the edge off. Yeah, right. No. Everybody's doing it. Some great scenes in the film. We ant want to welcome bill and Kristin to "Gma." Scenes like this, so funny. But heart-wrenching. Is that something that appealed to you to sort of stretch in that way together? Yeah, I mean, the script had kind of everything. I love comedies with a little bit of dram pa. And you know, I just thought it was well written. Wanted to work with bill. And it was a great experience. Yeah, yeah, no, we were -- it was definitely something new that I had always wanted to try. Drama and -- I was attached to the movie for a couple of years, it's an independent movie. It took awhile to get the financing and stuff. Then we got Kristen on board. It was awesome. You play siblings. Given how many years on "Snl" together? Seven. Seven. Seven seasons. Seven years together. Was that incredibly easy or was it a little surprising because these are very different than some of the karks you played in the sketches. It was so much easier. So much easier. To work with her. We have a kind of sibling relationship in life. It was easy to fall into that. It was easy to be vulnerable around each other. And then you have guys like Ty Burrell. He's so good in this film. And Luke Wilson. So with so many naturally funny people, and it is serious subject matter, what is the set like when the cameras are not rolling? It depends on the scene. If the scene was funny. We were very -- Maybe too much. We drove everyone nuts. We would be doing bits all the time. You're like, one more take. Or we were just messing around. A serious scene, we were respectful. Craig Johnson wrote or directed the movie. And the crew is so great. Very respectful and fans of the movie. So it was great. We have so many fan questions. I want to try to get to a couple quick. Bill, one of our fans asked, do you missstefan? Uh, yeah. We do, too. Yeah. You'll never see him again. Wow. No. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know about that. But I do miss him. You should have had someone doing him pop up. Wait, he's here. I found him. And then, how do you guys, this is from kat, how do you keep straight faces when you're rolling during those funny scenes? Sometimes we don't. We're bad. The californians, we said, we would make each other laugh. We would try to -- we would keep the same lines. We could change our inflections. I'm so excited you brought that up. Possibly my favorite skit. Fred armisen. He started talking differently. You could see us going, what is this voice? And Kristen was much better than me. I lost it. She was like, what are you doing? That's why we love you. So good to see you together. E hope everybody will check out "The skeleton twins. Stay with us because Ashley Judd is also live
