“It’s so neat to be a small part of this show’s amazing history,” Jason said. “A history that was fueled for its first 25 years by cocaine and adrenaline, its next 15 years by Starbucks and unhealthy comparisons, and the last six years by Adderall and fear.”
Jason then jokingly gave some advice to the new cast and crew members who are trying to get attention from show creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels.
“It’s fun to come back and, you know, be the veteran,” he explained. “You know, different folks asking me for advice … like, ‘I love working here, but what should I do next, or how do I get Lorne to notice me?’”
Jason then gave his answer: “And honestly, honestly, swear to god, I found myself giving the same advice to every single person. I was just like, you know, ‘Win an Emmy! And if you can, win two!’ You know, double up. That’s the best way to do it. It sets you up for success.”
If you didn’t know, Jason won two Emmy awards for Ted Lasso during the 2021 Emmy Awards.
