Noel Wells: He’s made a few cameos in big-budget movies, and now he’s got his bae. He met her on Raya. It may be a scam, but he doesn’t want to believe it. She says she loves him and so he takes her leftover money and he takes her to fancy hotels.

He talks to his agent, trying to get bigger roles. He’s like, “Why wasn’t I in The green knight?”

Eugene Cordero: Yes. “Why wasn’t I in The green knightEspecially since a lot of the cameos he did didn’t even have chimpanzees in them. They’re not like what you think, like, Planet of the Apes Where Dumbo. He was in Fargo. I think it was his first job.
