Despite what Lorne Michaels may think, Steve Carell never auditioned for Saturday Night Live, at least according to Steve Carell. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Lorne Michaels discussed the funny people that he “kicked [himself] over” for not casting. “Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell auditioned,” Michaels said. Only, not according to Carell. 

Carell tweeted: 

Unclear whether that eases Michaels’ retrospective conscience.
