Interviewer: ...but you knew each other before.

Fey: We’d met…

Rudd: We knew each other but we didn’t know each other very well. I’m trying to think, did we meet during the Soundtracks thing?

Fey: I think that might have been, yeah, we did this, would you call it a pilot? This special thing that never aired on VH1.

Rudd: Yeah, it was like a live thing.

Fey: It was a really cool thing that Amy Poehler and Amy Miles kind of ran where it was this thing called ‘Soundtracks Live’ where they would take a movie like, was it Sixteen Candles?

Rudd: Yeah, we did Sixteen Candles.

Fey: Where you would like act out the movie and then a band would play the soundtrack live and people would sing the songs.

Rudd: They started at UCB, they had live shows, and then this, yeah.

Fey: I think it just became a thing where the show came out great and then it was just like, I think they just couldn’t clear any of it.

Rudd: We shot it we did everything it was amazing and then John Hughes said no and–

Fey: He said he didn’t like it, and it was like… ok, great.

Interviewer: How long are you talking about, approximately?

Fey: Uh, 15 years ago? 10 years ago?

Rudd: It might have been about…9 years ago?

Fey: What did you play in it? In the Sixteen Candles part of it?

Rudd: I did um, I had a few different parts.

Fey: You were a swing?
