Bill Hader is one of the funniest and most sought after actors in show business today. But just 15 years ago, only Hollywood insiders knew of his many talents, including stand-up comedy, comedy writer, voice actor, celebrity impressionist, hilarious comedic performer and fine dramatic actor.
How does one man as young as Bill Hader (he allegedly just turned 41) learn the skills needed to be such a well-rounded, highly-gifted entertainer delivering at a level seemingly so far beyond his years?
Is it because he’s a Time Traveling Immortal?
It seems to be the only reasonable explanation for Hader’s incredible talents, which are rarely learned during the course of the average single lifespan of less than 100 years.
