Spade, who was promoting his new memoir “Almost Interesting” on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens: Live,” was asked by host Andy Cohen about which former cast mate was overrated. Spade quickly spun it to which host was the worst with which he had a quick answer: Steven Seagal.
“Maybe the host. Steven Seagal,” he said. “He was a little tough. I mean, he was actually tough, and he was tough to work with. It was hard. He did not want to play along.”
Spade isn’t the only person from the “SNL” cast to make this claim. Creator Lorne Michaels also pointed it out that Seagal, who appeared in episode 18 of Season 16, was less than pleasant to work with.
There have been stories that Seagal treated the cast and writers poorly during his time as host. It was even reported that he refused to leave his dressing room to perform a Hanz and Franz sketch because the characters, played by Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon, claimed to be able to beat him up.
