Pete Davidson is currently in quarantine at his mom’s Staten Island home, where he is attempting to refrain from using drugs. As this is public knowledge, one eager fan recently set out to “rescue” Davidson by delivering weed to the house.
“A lady rang my doorbell with a full bag of weed and gave it to my mom and said, ‘I heard your son needs this,'” Davidson told Jimmy Fallon during a Tonight Show interview on Thursday. “So if you see this, please do not do that. Because I will sell it.”
The 26-year-old comedian/actor previously went public regarding his mission to become clean in a video that he put out with Judd Apatow promoting their new movie, The King of Staten Island. The film, which is loosely based on Davidson’s life as he chases his dream of becoming a comedian, was originally scheduled to premiere in theaters, but due to the coronavirus, will now release via Video on Demand on June 12.
Also during the recent interview with Fallon, Davidson and Apatow recalled how they came to know one another. In short, Davidson was suggested by Amy Schumer for a part in Trainwreck. Although he only had one line, he evidently grabbed the attention of Bill Hader, who then recommended him for Saturday Night Live.
“It was really crazy. I was on set for like maybe 12 minutes and I met Bill Hader and then, about like a day later, Bill Hader called me and he goes, ‘I recommended you to Lorne Michaels,'” Davidson said, referencing the SNL creator and executive producer. “And I was like, ‘Why?!’ I barely had any interaction with him.”
“But then, I got the show! So I blame that, and everything else that has happened to me since then, on Bill Hader,” he went on to add.
