LOS ANGELES — A reporter, a photographer and a TV star walked into Max Karaoke Studio on Sawtelle Boulevard. The place didn’t serve alcohol, and so the reporter, who had booked a private room for the evening, had a pint bottle of whiskey concealed in a jacket pocket.
“I’ve been here before,” said Will Forte, 45, the star and co-creator of “The Last Man on Earth”, a postapocalyptic half-hour comedy on Fox. “My karaoke partner is always Jason Sudeikis, and we come here, to this very room. I can still smell him.”
The two friends, former “Saturday Night Live” cast members, play brothers on Mr. Forte’s show, which is now in its second season and returns Sunday, after a 12-week break. “Basically, the last year of my life has been waking up, going straight into work and then going home to bed,” Mr. Forte said.
