HIDDEN TALENT

I play the fife. It's an 18th-century flute. I was a member of a re-created British regiment in Massachusetts. If I may be so bold, I would say it was very sexy.

NICKNAME

I had a nickname in high school: Pepe. I grew a really bad mustache. For some reason, somebody on the lacrosse team thought I looked like Pepe Le Pew. I dabbled with facial hair for many years.

FAVE THING TO BBQ

I enjoy barbecuing a nice hot-fudge sundae. Most people melt the ice cream when they throw it on the grill. There's a way to give it a nice, crispy outside. It's delicious.

DREAM COSTAR

My wife Nancy Carell. Not only would we still be married, but we would be more in love than ever.

KNEW HE WAS FAMOUS WHEN ...

The baristas at Starbucks started recognizing us from The Daily Show. They would put Steve on my cup without me asking. Sometimes they may have thought I was Stephen Colbert, but that was just fine.
