Comedian Mike O’Brien has managed to get the likes of Christina Ricci, Elijah Wood, Amy Poehler, Tracy Morgan, and Kristen Wiig (as you can see here), among others, alone in a closet with him. How? He hosts a web show called 7 Minutes in Heaven. His version of the classic middle school party game includes chatting about guests’ work, performing improvisational scenes, and yes, often awkward kisses. Usually to hilarious results and I can only hope that one day I’m famous enough to be a guest (I hope my boyfriend isn’t reading this). Regardless, I always wonder whether the actors know what they’re getting themselves into or not (in the case of rap group ICP, probably not) when they put themselves into the tiny space with O’Brien for 7 Minutes in Heaven. After all, the show hasn’t been around that long. In any case, I wasn’t quite sure what would happen when Ellen DeGeneres appeared, the talk show host is of course married to actress Portia di Rossi. See for yourself.
