“This guy is such a good guy, man,” the comedian continued. “He is one of the nicest guys, man. I’ve met his father. I’ve set up with him, we’ve talked for hours. I just can’t find nothin’ wrong with him. Between me and you, I’m hoping this lasts ’cause this is a really, really good guy, man. I can’t whoop him. Most guys, I say I can jump on ’em and take ’em out, but he just looks like a real ass-whoopin’ in the making. So I’m just hoping they make it.”
Ellen similarly shared her praise for Michael and then said she expected him to be in Steve’s life “for a while.” At this, Steve comedically replied with a sigh and said, “Oh, god, let’s hope so.”
Here’s hoping Steve gets his wish and will have plenty of time to develop this adorable bromance.
