Will Forte visited Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday night to promote his new FOX show, The Last Man on Earth, airing this Sunday, March 1st at 9pm. He told Kimmel that now that production was pretty much finished, he was spending time catching up on episodes of The Bachelor.
“I love it. I love it. I can’t even explain it,” gushed Forte. Kimmel then brings out surprise guest Chris Soules from this season’s The Bachelor, who presents a rose to Forte. Forte, thrilled, screams like a girl (with a very deep voice), and pulls at his own hair.
Watch the funny in the video below along with the clip about his beard growing experience.
“I don’t even know what our kissing chemistry is like,” says Forte.
Replies Soules, “There’s only one way to find out.” They hug and Forte declares, “That’s the most exciting thing that’s happened of all time.” Kimmel pointed out that he was blushing.
FOX’s official synopsis for The Last Man on Earth:
From writer/producer Will Forte (“Nebraska,” “Saturday Night Live”) and directors/producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord (“The Lego Movie,” “21 Jump Street”), THE LAST MAN ON EARTH is a new single-camera comedy that chronicles the life and adventures of an average guy – and humanity’s last hope – who discovers what life is like when no one is telling you what you can and cannot do.
The year is 2020, and after a deadly virus has swept the planet, only one man is left on earth: PHIL MILLER (Forte). He used to be just an average guy who loved his family and hated his job. Now, in his RV, Phil searches the country for other survivors. He has traveled to every city, every town and every outpost in the United States, Mexico and Canada, and has found no one. As he returns to his hometown of Tucson, Phil comes to the painful realization that he is almost certainly the last living being on the face of the earth. All he wants is for someone – anyone – to find him in Tucson – preferably a woman.
Be careful what you wish for, Phil…
Will shares his love of “The Bachelor” and gets a special surprise from current Bachelor Chris Soules.
