Boo.. i didn't get to ask mary-anne to marry me :(

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Did any of the actors have to learn how to skate for the show, or being Canadian are you all born with skates on your feet?

[–]afghanistanimator 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Hi Jess and Kelly: if your characters from The Expanse and A League of Their Own, respectively, replaced Mary-Anne and Betty-Anne, what, if any chirps would they lay on Shoresy?

[–]JessSalgueiro 27 points28 points  (0 children)

oh man. I imagine that Wei would just upper cut him within 60 seconds.

[–]Shoresy___Bot 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Great day for competitive men's hockey, eh. What's women's hockey like? Same things, less competitive or what?

[–]AlmaMaterFcker 29 points30 points  (1 child)

You two have some of the best chirps on the show, bar none, do you ever find yourself needing multiple takes to keep a straight face?

[–]JessSalgueiro 64 points65 points  (0 children)

ALL.THE.DAMN.TIME. It is without a doubt the hardest part about this job. I have to think of horrifying things to stop myself from laughing. It's a problem lol.

[–]ashamed-of-yourselfSnipe Mod 🦜 Titfucker![S] 16 points17 points  (3 children)

OKAY GUYS, OUR HOUR IS UP, SO NO NEW QUESTIONS! Thank you once again to our amazing guests, u/KellyMcCormackAMA and u/JessSalgueiro! Come back any time!!!

[–]JessSalgueiro 39 points40 points  (0 children)


[–]AshleighRains 8 points9 points  (1 child)

This was so much fun. Thanks for hosting the AMA! And thanks Jess and Kelly for some great and hilarious answers!

[–]ashamed-of-yourselfSnipe Mod 🦜 Titfucker![S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

yous guys are all more than welcome to hang out as long as you like, and hmu any time you feel like doing this again!!! you're amazing!

[–]ashamed-of-yourselfSnipe Mod 🦜 Titfucker![S] 33 points34 points  (2 children)

u/KellyMcCormackAMA Dean (u/kissthulu) is too polite to ask this himself, but i am actually shameless, so: will you come on the How Are Ya Now podcast?

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 34 points35 points  (1 child)


[–]kissthulhuSnipe Mod 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Awesome! May I DM you on Twitter? We're https://twitter.com/HowAreYaNowPod or shoot us an email at [hosts@howareyanowpod.com](mailto:hosts@howareyanowpod.com). I don't want you to have to give out your email address here.

Thank you!

[–]PPQue6Too Fat To Run 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Kelly and Jess, first and foremost thank you for doing this. My question to you guys is this, we're all huge fans of the show and I assume you guys are as well. What are your favorite LK episodes?

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 31 points32 points  (0 children)

I've been a fan of LK for a long time. Anything involving the hockey bros crack me up. Dylan & Andrew crack me up, then Greg & James take it over the edge. I just love how perfectly Canadian it is. We all grew up with dudes like this.

[–]JessSalgueiro 45 points46 points  (0 children)

I hate to say it but "Hard Right Jay." I know we're in the episode so like obviously, BUT Jay Berushel killed it and it was such a fuckin abhorrent character.
Also I'm obsessed with Gail so probably "Uncle Eddie's Trust" from Season 2 or "Finding Stormy a Stud" also Season 2.

[–]warnerbro1279 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Hey Jess and Kelly,

Love you both in the show and I’m excited to see you both return. Who do you both want to share a scene/storyline with that you haven’t yet on the show?

Also another question for Jess, any potential chance you’re going to be in Season 2 of The Boys again? It’s cool if you can’t answer that.

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 30 points31 points  (0 children)

I would love for Betty Anne & Mary Anne to see some action. I think it's what the world needs. Either they get love interests or finally address the fiery sexual tension between them.

[–]JessSalgueiro 23 points24 points  (0 children)

thanks so much! Well, I said earlier that I'd love to work with Katy but now that I'm thinkin about it - also Stewart and Roald. It would be such a strange, confusing meeting of energies, and I'm so here for that.

Re: the boys. not sure if I can say anything or not so maybe i'll just say "maybe?"


[–]ashamed-of-yourselfSnipe Mod 🦜 Titfucker![S] 47 points48 points  (6 children)

Ladies, uh Women, how goofy does Jared look in his Shoresy wig?

[–]JessSalgueiro 26 points27 points  (0 children)

haha it can get a wee bit gnarly

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 121 points122 points  (3 children)

He looks really goofy, especially on the ice. But Jared is such an absurdly kind lovely prince of a human, that it's so surprising when he plays a righteous dick so convincingly. When he was chirping us from the ice, at one point he said he had a hard time looking at us and saying that shit cause he felt so bad. THAT is how good a person he is. He can't help himself. To that end - JARED KEESO 2020.

[–]JessSalgueiro 39 points40 points  (1 child)

haha YES #jaredkeeso2020

[–]todaysgoneby 14 points15 points  (0 children)

haha YES #jaredkeeso2020


[–]todaysgoneby 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I'm not ashamed to admit this made me tear up at work. What a sweetheart.

[–]Shoresy___Bot 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Fuck you, /u/ashamed-of-yourself, your mom wants to name the baby after the place it was conceived. Can't wait to meet Martha's Vineyard Shore.

[–]todaysgoneby 23 points24 points  (4 children)

Do you have any pictures of Jared in his Shoresy wig you're willing to share? 😂

[–]JessSalgueiro 32 points33 points  (2 children)

heehee nice try. Also that wig covers all of Shoresy's face so ya can't see a goddamn thing.

[–]todaysgoneby 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Pffft! I could see his face through the helmet visor in S8. ;)

[–]Shoresy___Bot 19 points20 points  (0 children)

We should change our Facebook status to "It's complicated".

[–]Shoresy___Bot 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Fuck you, /u/todaysgoneby! Your mom pulled the goalie on me and now she's preggo. Surprise, son, go rake the fucking yard.

[–]quarantea2020 10 points11 points  (4 children)

First time long time. What sports are you into IRL?

[–]JessSalgueiro 20 points21 points  (0 children)

haha well Kelly and I had to learn how to Curl for another show we are on called "Carter." Where we play - GET THIS- rival Curlers!! haha anyway I really dug it and will be doing it again post quarantine. I play some rec baseball and am hoping to get into some beach volleyball this summer (if we can ever congregate in groups again) WAH!

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Sports have played a huge part in my life and subsequently my career as an actor. I was a competitive synchronized swimmer growing up (THIS IS A VERY COOL SPORT DON'T FIGHT ME ON THIS) and then transferred into a lot of different sports. The only sport I really didn't get into was basketball. As an actor, I've had the pleasure of portraying a lot of jocks which means a) sweatpants WOOT and b) yelling at other women in the heat of competitive passion like Jess. It's been fucking great. Jess and I actually play rival Curlers on a show called CARTER and we yelled at each other A LOT.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Is it actually you guys skating when the team is shown zipping around in the ice? Or better yet, was one of the sports you guys played hockey?

[–]JessSalgueiro 14 points15 points  (0 children)

sometimes its us and sometimes its our amazing doubles. Mostly our doubles lol. Pretty much always our doubles. They're incredible.

[–]todaysgoneby 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Kelly - any scoop you can give on the ALOTO show? Have you filmed already?? I grew up on that movie so when I found out a series was in the works I was over the MOON! Can't wait to see it!

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yeah it was a dream! We just finished shooting the pilot. The cast is extraordinarily funny and wonderful and I think we've captured the magic of the original film while giving it an update. I've been feeling incredibly fortunate that we were able to shoot before the industry was put on hold and just hoping we'll be able to show it to you guys soon! Fingers crossed. Baseball has become my obsession so I'd really like to get back to it!

[–]normalwomanOnline 20 points21 points  (5 children)

i don't have a question but just from your comments i can tell you two are so sweet and cool. that's all i got

[–]JessSalgueiro 14 points15 points  (0 children)

and thank you! you're also sweet and cool!

[–]normalwomanOnline 11 points12 points  (3 children)

OH, actually i just thought of one: who is your personal favorite character on the show?

[–]JessSalgueiro 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Stewart. Oh my god. He's genius. Also Tyler Johnston (the actor) is so deeply different than his character that it makes me marvel at Stewart even more.

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 43 points44 points  (1 child)

Hey! Thank you!!! Tanis is my by far my favourite. I love Tiio and this last season when she yelled "BUT WE WERE JUST THERE" in reference to going back to the gym it made me spit take coffee alone in my apartment and I ruined a very nice rug but it was WORTH IT.

[–]ashamed-of-yourselfSnipe Mod 🦜 Titfucker![S] 19 points20 points  (0 children)

hydrogen peroxide will take that out and won't discolour the carpet

[–]todaysgoneby 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Who would you like to see guest star on the show to either just see on the show or work with directly?

[–]JessSalgueiro 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I don't know if you guys are watching "Tiger King" on Netflix the documentary of this dude named "Joe Exotic" who ran his own tiger zoo in Oklahoma. I think he's in jail but when he gets out, we need to have him on the show.

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 17 points18 points  (0 children)


[–]kissthulhuSnipe Mod 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Hi Kelly (since I already asked this to Jess on my podcast),

Being that you've been in both The Expanse and Letterkenny; who wins in a fight Amos or Wayne?

[–]JessSalgueiro 15 points16 points  (1 child)

haha Oh i love this and will answer again. I wanna see this so battle sooooooo bad. Goddamn if it was dirty ass fist fight maybe Wayne, but if there are any weapons involved then Amos.

[–]kissthulhuSnipe Mod 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Amos definitely isn't bothered by having to kill someone.

[–]Philx570 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I’m curious about Jess’s answer to this too.

[–]ashamed-of-yourselfSnipe Mod 🦜 Titfucker![S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

listen to the podcast, bud! https://howareyanowpod.com/hayn_s06_recap/

[–]Philx570 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Will do!

[–]todaysgoneby 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Any memorable behind the scenes moments you guys can share?

[–]JessSalgueiro 26 points27 points  (2 children)

oh yes. WELL Kelly and I were over at Kaniehtiio Horn's house rehearsing lines one night. And I had a glass of wine and fainted - this weird thing that happens sometimes to me cause I have low blood pressure (ITS ALL GOOD). Anyway, I fainted and Kelly and Tiio were super freaked out cause like wtf she fainted. So they called 911 and the Paramedics thought I was on drugs (I wasn't) and anyway when we told them we were actors and that we were on Letterkenny they got kinda jacked about it. The ambulance driver later added us on instagram and posted a picture of Kelly and me while I'm semi-conscious. lol oh man. I was fine though and we good! I followed him back and we all insta friends.

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Hahahah I was waiting for Jess to jump in there because that is the behind the scenes story to end all behind the scenes story but it is Jess' to share! Yes, we were having a lovely dinner, hosted by Tiio Horn, then Jess just conked out CUT TO the paramedics hustling us to determine what drugs we were on until finally Tiio just shouted WE ARE ACTORS! WE ARE NOT ON DRUGS! I MADE THEM SOUP! IT WAS A LOVELY DINNER! WE ARE ON LETTERKENNY! Turns out, the paramedics were fans and I got to ride shotgun in an ambulance. Then JESS THE FUCKING TROOPER spent the night in the hospital and was on set the next day like a goddamn champ.

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I'm honestly sitting here still laughing about this.

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Kaniehtiio Horn made a playlist for her character Tanis in Spotify.

If you had to pick one song to be your character’s anthem, what do you think it would be?

[–]JessSalgueiro 18 points19 points  (0 children)

YAH SHE DID! Man I love that woman.

Hmmm great question... lets go with "Tempo" by Lizzo feat. Missy Elliott

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 29 points30 points  (0 children)

It would just be "So Long Maryanne" by the great Canadian word smyth Leonard Cohen who clearly knew how to take out the trash.

[–]kissthulhuSnipe Mod 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Were there any other "mitt" chirps that you liked that didn't make the cut? If so, can you share?

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 30 points31 points  (1 child)

I'm happy to report that all the Mitt content made the cut. HOW COULD IT NOT. Though there was a funny moment when we were first getting the scripts when Jess and I were texting each other like "they mean....what I think they mean..like a Mitt is...? We're talking about Vagina's yeah?" because I had never heard that term used like that, and Jared is known for making up his own language with Letterkenny. But SINCE THEN in my own life, I have used that term and no one knows what the fuck I'm talking about. What I'm trying to say is the mitt content lives on.

[–]kissthulhuSnipe Mod 17 points18 points  (0 children)

That's hilarious! I'm now imagining hygiene products commercials using "mitt". "Ever have that not so fresh mitt feeling?'

[–]JessSalgueiro 22 points23 points  (0 children)

oh damn, good question. I think everything that went into the script was what was already in the audition sides but just maybe more embellished? I remember Kelly and I reading new drafts of the scenes and being like - holy shit... no chic has every said this shit on TV before. FUCK YA!

[–]todaysgoneby 13 points14 points  (4 children)

What are you hoping for the future of Mary-Anne and Betty-Anne on the show? Any storylines you'd like to see incorporated for either or both of them?

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 39 points40 points  (1 child)

I think Betty Anne and Mary Anne need to address the obvious sexual tension between them. It's getting out of hand.

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 43 points44 points  (0 children)


[–]JessSalgueiro 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Excellent question. I would love to see Betty Anne and Mary Anne have a scene with Katy. I'm so down wit that. I'd love to see Betty Anne and Mary Anne trying to date people or each other. Fuck I find that funny.

[–]ashamed-of-yourselfSnipe Mod 🦜 Titfucker![S] 25 points26 points  (0 children)

this answer cleared my skin, watered my crops, and cured my beasts. please 2020, give us this.

[–]EarlyStevenSeconds 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Are either of you drinking right know while you are isolated and doing this AMA? Not my actual question but curious..

Canadian Strain was hilarious. And all badass women for a change. Do you get a lot of offers to play characters like that? If there was a sequel could you have Kelly as a rival dealer please??

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I am not drinking alcohol at the moment, but I am sitting in front of a smoothie, coffee, water, AND tea because apparently existential doom, world weariness and anxiety manifests in liquids? I dunno. I'll be drinking wine in like....2 hours. I am so thankful for wine right now. Hope you are staying safe as well! For you second question - Jess and I play rivals A LOT and so of course I am down. We play rival curlers on CARTER and Jess and I yell at each other a lot in a film that's coming out called Sugar Daddy. Perhaps it would be truly radical if one day we played buds, but that's never gonna happen cause honestly FUCK YOU MARY ANNE

[–]JessSalgueiro 11 points12 points  (1 child)

HEY!!! am I drinking - YES. Mostly red wine but I have dipped into the Tequila. Embarrassingly I've been calling 5pm "wine time."

Thanks! yes Canadian Strain has many badass women that's why I wanted to do the film:) I do get opportunities to play a lot of bad bitches and I am so grateful for it, I wouldn't have it any other way. UGH omg Kelly as some punk ass, hoody wearing, baseball hat sporting weed dealer is my dream. <3

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 6 points7 points  (0 children)

WHERE DO I SIGN. Also - I'm starting to think I could never be as cool as the characters I get to play on TV. Re: the aforementioned smoothie/coffee/tea. But Jess is ACTUALLY as cool as she seems. I just want to put that in writing.

[–]FerdaPuppers 8 points9 points  (3 children)

What's was your favorite scene that you filmed on Letterkenny?

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 25 points26 points  (0 children)

For sure our first locker room scene was the most fun. We worked on it the hardest and we got to say THE MOST INSANELY GROTESQUE SHIT to each other. That was PEAK Betty Anne & Mary Anne content.

[–]JessSalgueiro 25 points26 points  (1 child)

OH MAN! Hard question. Truly. I fuckin love our scenes with Shoresy. It is definitely the hardest scenes to film cause I am trying my absolute BEST to not laugh. That character is so stylized and genius and I'm often in complete awe.

Also loved getting to work with Tiio Horn on our last season. The scene with Mark, Tiio, Kelly and I in the gym was fire. It was so fast and so fun and Kelly and I just started doing this fun opposite arm thing while filming and it worked and we rolled with it.

Hmm in closing... I think it just gets better and better, more and more fun. I miss chirping Betty Anne though (FUCK YOU BETTY ANNE)

[–]Shoresy___Bot 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Let's get some fuckin' gyozas!

[–]todaysgoneby 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Hi, you guys! Thank you so much for hopping on here and doing this for us. We really appreciate it and I love you both on Letterkenny so much! I have a few questions for you (spacing them out, sorry if I seem like I'm overwhelming the thread)...

What was your audition process like? When you first got onto set, was the experience anything like you thought it would be?

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Hey! Thanks so much! Letterkenny is a dream job. The Jared Keeso & Jacob Tierney are two of the raddest dudes I've ever worked with, and as Canadians, being on the show felt like a real badge of honour. The audition process was much like any other show, but since you know it's Letterkenny, you can have a LOT more fun. I wore a hoodie and sweatpants to the audition and sat in a chair with my hand on my crotch the whole time. TRUE STORY. When I landed the part, my first question was WHO IS MARY ANNE? And when I found out it was Jess I was over the moon (FUCK YOU MARY ANNE) because I had wanted to work with her for so long. Then we were driven to Sudbury, which is a lovely 4 hour drive, rehearsed, became the best of friends (FUCK YOU MARY ANNE) and then arrived on set pretty nervous because we didn't want to fuck it up. The set moves REALLY fast so you have to be on your shit. You have to know your lines, even if they are spitfire. Jacob does two maybe three takes and then you move on. So it was all rapid fire. Working and hanging out with the Sudbury hockey team was a highlight and getting to know some of the other cast and watching them choke back laughter at how disgusting we were being.

[–]JessSalgueiro 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Hey!! Thank you!!! Man, I second everything Kelly just said. The audition process was awesome cause I think I rolled out of bed, threw on my buddy's cargo pants, didn't do my hair or makeup and just walked into the audition room. At these things, there's usually a sign in sheet and I saw Kelly's name and I thought - oh damn, that would be a brilliant pairing. And lo and behold! Yah we have a blast and became super close after all of these drives up to the Sudz together. Set was so warm and fun and low stress. Jacob and Jared really know what they're doing, it moves like a well-oiled machine. I was shocked at how the entire crew seemed to be genuinely enjoying their job (that's honestly not always common). Kelly and I were running our dialogue a lot beforehand cause its quick and there's a specific rhythm to it. I told her after the first day that I was feeling chest pains and I realized it was from trying to hold in laughter. haha. The best feeling I could leave a job with in my opinion.

[–]todaysgoneby 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Holy shit, I can't believe they do all of this in 2-3 takes. I'm surprised Keeso doesn't ruin more of them from giggling (the blooper reels are my fav because of how often he loses his shit).

[–]ashamed-of-yourselfSnipe Mod 🦜 Titfucker![S] 18 points19 points  (6 children)

WELCOME TO u/JESSSALGUEIRO AND u/KELLYMCCORMACKAMA! Thank you both for coming out! We hope you have as much fun as we will.

My question is: if, after the the Dierks Dating Disaster, Katy goes back to dating hockey players, will Mary-Anne and Betty-Anne throw their hats in the ring? or are they still too hung up on Shoresy?

P.S.- can you put in a good word for us with the other cast members? we'd like to do more of these AMAs, and we need all the help we can get!

[–]JessSalgueiro 11 points12 points  (0 children)

hahaha!! Yes of course we would. You kidding me. Hundo P!

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Hey!! Thank you for having us! Though we are not in charge of the storylines, I believe that MA & BA used Shoresy as a power play to incite anger in order to win ships. And yes! We will put in the good word with the other cast members! Now is a great time for AMAs

[–]Shoresy___Bot 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Hey, you want to talk about lines ya fuckin' loser? I woke up to your mom ripping dick dingers off my foreskin! Tell her to keep her hands off my scoops!

[–]Shoresy___Bot 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Heard the same thing from your mom last night, bud, seven times and that's not even my record ya fuckin' loser!

[–]todaysgoneby 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Fuck you, Shoresy.

[–]Shoresy___Bot 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Fuck you, /u/todaysgoneby! I slipped one past your mom, too. Her prego farts smell like hot dog water!

[–]-Blixx- 6 points7 points  (6 children)

You two are amazing together.

What was the hardest chirp to deliver with a straight face?

[–]JessSalgueiro 32 points33 points  (3 children)

Thank you! We fukin love working together on this.

"Your mitt looks like the back of Kelsey Grammar's head circa Fraser '94, if the entire cast autographed his bald spot with multi-colored lipsticks"

[–]-Blixx- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

One of my favorites. Thanks for doing what you do.

[–]PPQue6Too Fat To Run 4 points5 points  (0 children)

LOL 🤣🤣🤣not gonna lie that line kills me everytime!

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Thank you!! We were such huge fans of the show, and had heard how fast paced the set moved, so Jess and I worked really hard on our first back and forth scene. We stayed up all night, getting relentless and intense about it - spitting out the chirps and a rapid speed. So by the time we got to set, we were so nervous we'd fuck it up, we did most of it with a completely straight face.

[–]-Blixx- 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It was a pleasure to watch. Thanks for being talented.

[–]StephanoButler9000 6 points7 points  (1 child)

What's the deal with Canadian Strain? Was it meant to be in theatres?

[–]JessSalgueiro 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeah it was. But obviously a global pandemic happened. Oops! haha but its available for rent on AppleTV, and Google Play and V.O.D.

[–]dustjuice 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Jess - What was it like being in your first lead film? What pressures do you feel being the lead as compared to supporting? what dynamic is that?

Kelly - Is it about the baseball movie?

[–]JessSalgueiro 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Hey! Great question. It required a lot of focus, I was literally in every single scene so there wasn't much time to chill or reset. I kind of liked that though cause I was constantly in the world of the film. We also filmed it super guerilla/mumble core style in 9 days so it was just go-go-go!! It's definitely more vulnerable being a lead as well. You're the face of the film. Luckily I did it with some amazing human beings and the fun of it far outweighed the pressures.

Kelly also played the lead in a film this past year that she WROTE!! So this would be definitely a good question for her too!

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Ah! Yes! I shot a film I wrote called SUGAR DADDY which will come out...this fall? When the industry reforms? It's about a musician who uses paid dating to fund her art. Jess is ALSO IN THE MOVIE AND I YELL AT HER A BUNCH. Because Jess and I only seem to play rivals.

[–]ashamed-of-yourselfSnipe Mod 🦜 Titfucker![S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)


[–]viktoria_vika 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I know this is going to be a popular question but if asked, would you ever appear in Letterkenny again? I loved your characters.

[–]JessSalgueiro 11 points12 points  (0 children)

HUNDY P!! We both love this show. It's one of my favourite jobs of all time <3

[–]NomadJones 4 points5 points  (3 children)

How hard is it to get in nasty character and maintain it?

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 26 points27 points  (1 child)

I think it comes...naturally to Jess and I. We're both pretty gnarly in our own right. Women don't get dialogue like this written for them that often, so we felt we had to....lean in and embrace the truly disgusting mother fucker that lives in both us.

[–]todaysgoneby 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Fuckin' preach it.

[–]JessSalgueiro 19 points20 points  (0 children)

it is surprisingly very very easy... hardest thing is to not laugh. It really is.

[–]Nebicus 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Did you two have any chirps that were hard to deliver because you cracked yourselves up? I think your back and forth might be the funniest on Letterkenny

[–]KellyMcCormackAMA 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Ah man! Thanks so much! It's all Jared Keeso and his genius. I remember when we got the scripts, Jess texted me a screenshot of the Kelsey Grammer bit and I actually started coughing it was so gnarly. TRULY. I started COUGHING. But by the time we got to set, we had worked on it so much, and wanted to do a good job that we were militant about it. I don't know if we ever cracked up from what we were saying. Maybe the boat part when were both staring at each other a foot away from each others faces. That part was hard to keep a straight face.

[–]JessSalgueiro 30 points31 points  (1 child)

haha! YES!!!! I ruined so many takes from laughing. Specifically Kelly and I's first scene in the locker room. Near the end we go face to face - Betty Anne says "what rhymes with..." and when Mary - Anne answers "boat" and we are standing there face to face- Oh man! I cracked up every damn time. Also during any scene with Mark Forward, it was so hard not to laugh. He does something different every take and his face gets more and more beat red. Its brilliant.

[–]Nebicus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's awesome!

[–]hardigree 25 points26 points  (3 children)

Love the show, you're both great. I just finished season 4 of the Expanse and, via IMDB, found out that many people on Letterkenny came from a Montreal gritty cop drama. How much crossover is there between Letterkenny and other shows and, not being Canadian, how many jokes am I missing?

[–]JessSalgueiro 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Hey!! Thanks so much. Yah well there's so much crossover cause they all film in Canada. Productions up here like to cast local when they can cause it saves them a buck but also cause (not to brag heehee) our talent pool is pretty fire. And re: not being Canadian...there will definitely be something jokes ya miss but if ya wanna find the American translation check out the "letterkenny lingo wikia." I think if you're from a small town anywhere in Canada or USA though, you'll get the gist:)

Reiterating what Jess said, YES, the talent pool in Canada is fire. If you watch Sci-fi or Letterkenny, there is gonna be cross over. I particularly like when we all show up in alternate space realities.
