Never Ask ‘Barry’ Star Bill Hader That Question Again

Bill Hader admits he is not a fan of press junkets.

A recent episode of “Barry”—the dark HBO comedy that Haider co-produced—completely skews the relentless tone and craziness of the junkets and questions asked.

“You know what’s good when you get new questions,” the “Saturday Night Live” alum told The Post in a recent interview. “It’s a good interview because it’s like new questions. This is the stuff where they’re asking you, ‘How did you get the idea for the show?’ When you’re doing Season 3 and you’re like ‘Google that question and my name.’ I’ve answered it, like, 50,000 times.”

The 43-year-old actor revealed that the inspiration for the “Barry” press junket came from his own experience within the show.

“It came from when I did a movie called ‘Skeleton Twins’ and someone asked me something about suicide because that movie deals with suicide, and I was giving a thoughtful take on suicide,” he explained . “And then he interjected, ‘I have to go. One last question: What do you think of Ben Affleck as ‘Batman’? So that’s kind of where it all came from.”

in “Barry”, which is currently in its third season and has been officially renewed for a quarterIn , Hader plays Barry Berkman, a weary hitman who finds a new sense of purpose after attending a drama class in Los Angeles. Henry Winkler, 76, won his first Emmy for his hilarious portrayal of his narcissistic drama teacher.

“Trainwreck” star Haider said he would have to suppress any idea that he was working against The Fonz because otherwise, “I wouldn’t be able to do anything,” he said.

“Same with Stephen Root. I’m such a fan of his,” added Kay Haider, the 70-year-old actor who played Barry’s handler, Monroe Fuchs.

“So I just focus on what the scene is about and we do that,” Haider continued. “I sometimes forget it until the crew does something and it starts going into the fonji and doing the fonji — and then everyone loses their mind. ‘Oh, well, you’re an icon. .'”

Haider shared that he has no problem playing such a sad character.

“I never think about it that way,” he explained. “Everyone’s always asking me, ‘Oh, how hard would it be to bring that character home with you?’ I don’t think about it that way.

“Maybe that’s why actors are so improbable because there are people that everything is fine here on the surface,” he continued. “So you’re working, writing and doing stuff and it’s like, ‘Okay, you have to do this scene where you walk out,’ you can just do it and go, ‘How’s that? Was?’ … ‘Oh, I need to do it right here for the lights? Sorry, guys, let’s do it again.’ Then you do it again.”
