Before They Were Stars: Bill Hader in “Sounds Good to Me: Remastering the Sting”

I was surprised to discover that before he was became a cast member on Saturday Night Live, Bill Hader started out his career as a production assistant on a number of Hollywood films. He even served as a P.A. on Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy, the feature-length documentary included as a special feature on the first DVD release of the original Star Wars trilogy. So I guess it’s only appropriate that the first acting credit on Hader’s filmography is Sounds Good to Me: Remastering the Sting, a seven-minute short film from 2004 which satirizes DVD behind-the-scenes featurettes. Hader portrays Barnaby G. Price, a sound designer who is responsible for remastering the audio on an anniversary DVD edition of The Sting, but winds up sabotaging the film.
