Isaac will be hosting “Saturday Night Live” soon, so how is he prepping? He commented, “I’m just trying to like be present and be in the moment. I think that’s what it’s about, right? You just have to like commit and like be loose. That’s what I’m trying to just keep telling myself.”

Oscar was surrounded by stars, but is there anyone he wanted to meet? He answered, ‘I’ve met everybody. I’ve been around a long time.”
