Before Saturday Night Live showcased highlights from its 40-year history on Sunday, stars past and present gathered on the red carpet to honor the sketch show's historic run.
As they recalled their favorites, though, a few folks noted some missed opportunities. Below, find out who wishes they'd had the chance to keep a straight face around Stefon and which two gentlemen wish they could have demanded "More Cowbell!"
AJ McLean: "I would love to do anything with Stefon even though I would probably break character immediately because Bill Hader is amazing and that character is amazing, but if I could be, like, Stefon's little brother and we could do a whole skit without breaking character that'd be pretty awesome, that would be the one."

Boy band members are a lot like ice-cream flavors: There's such a wide variety that it's always hard to pick exactly which one is your very favorite.
But what if every boy-band member actually was an ice-cream flavor?

Just when you thought the Backstreet Boys couldn't get any cuter!
While on break from touring in China on Thursday, the reunited boy band – members Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough and A.J. McLean – made nice with a group of panda cubs during a visit to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in the country's Sichuan province.
Judging from the photo, we're not sure which quintet had the better time: While each guy happily cradled his furry buddy, the little ones gleefully kicked back, too, relaxing and indulging in delicious drinks.

From Backstreet to one of the most famous streets!
More than 15 years after the release of their self-titled debut album, Backstreet Boys A.J. McLean, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, Kevin Richardson and Nick Carter were awarded with their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Monday.
Clad in dapper suits – a far cry from the leather and oh-so-sparkly bandanas of their youth – the group grinned as they posed with the brand-new (and 2,485th) star.
