Phil Lord and Christopher Miller aren’t generally known for keeping their work under wraps, but thus far FOX’s midseason comedy ‘The Last Man on Earth’ has been all-but airtight beyond ‘SNL’ alum Will Forte’s central role in the series. Now, we learn that Forte is no longer the last living soul the title would suggest, as the cast has raptured ‘Mad Men’'s January Jones, comedian Kristen Schaal, Mel Rodriguez and more.

There are a lot of intriguing things going on in '7 Days in Hell,' an original movie being produced for HBO. First of all, it's a sports comedy. Secondly, it's a mockumentary. Third, it's going to star the completely untested comedy duo of 'SNL' alum Andy Samberg and ... 'Game of Thrones' star Kit Harington?!

'The Simpsons' has been on for so long that no corner of this fictional city hasn't been explored, and no casual reference hasn't been transformed into a full-fledged character or storyline. Well, at least we thought so! It looks like the 26th season of the long-running program managed to find one sliver of Springfield that's been left unexplored and Fox enlisted Will Forte to help explore it.

Remember Quentin Tarantino's 'Jackie Brown,' in which Pam Grir plays a flight attendant wrapped up in a scheme to smuggle drugs into the US? Well, what were two of those scheming bad guys, the ones played by Samuel L. Jackson and Robert De Niro, like when they were younger? What kind of shenanigans would they get themselves into? 'Life of Crime' tries to answer that question, and the first trailer is full of laughs and semi-failed schemes.

Over the years, 'SNL' nixed its fair share of sketches from their late-night installments -- for one, take a look at this bizarre sketch from Andrew Garfield's latest hosting run -- but now they're getting a second chance to see the light of day. Seth Meyers, who served as 'SNL' head writer for nearly 10 years, is determined to resurrect some never-aired favorites for his new audience on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers.'

We've seen more than a few post-'SNL' TV vehicles for Will Forte fall apart, but FOX seems to have finally given the 'Nebraska' star a shot. Forte will soon join fellow 'SNL' alum Andy Samberg on FOX, now that Forte's high-concept comedy 'Last Man on Earth' has been given a full series order.

Good Will Hunting: Talking 'Nebraska' With Will Forte, Who Might Be the Nicest Guy in Hollywood

Since leaving 'SNL' a few years ago, Will Forte has guest-starred on several TV shows (including a memorable turn as a drag queen on '30 Rock') and had roles in several comedies, including 'MacGruber' -- the movie based on his 'SNL' character, which has cultivated a cult following since its release in 2010. This Friday, audiences will get to see a very different side of the comedic actor in Alexander Payne's 'Nebraska,' a father-son road trip dramedy co-starring the legendary Bruce Dern. In the film, Forte plays David, an aimless stereo salesman who agrees to take his father, Woody, to Nebraska when the latter believes he's won prize money in a sweepstakes.
We had a chance to sit down with Forte to discuss the opportunity to work with Payne and Dern, reuniting with his 'Brothers Solomon' director Bob Odenkirk, and what's next for the 'MacGruber' star.
