After toasting to comedian Amy Schumer for her first top-billed movie role, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb set up the "Trainwreck" star with a "super hot" guy on the TODAY set.
But before getting to that, the rising star described filming "Trainwreck" — whose nationwide theatrical release is this Friday — as the "best time" of her life.
Describing the movie as "very autobiographical," Schumer considers her role as the college "sophomore version" of herself. And while she said she'll still "sleep with someone once in a blue [moon]," Kathie Lee and Hoda offered a TODAY staffer as a potentially more permanent solution.
Fresh off serving as unofficial stunt-double to "Ant-Man" and "House of Cards" star Corey Stoll, TODAY stage manager and "resident hunk" Yosef Herzog appeared to make a solid first impression. "I think he's super hot," said Schumer, who later asked, "Would you be willing to change your name to Joseph? Love is compromise, OK?"
Earlier this year, Schumer spent time helping out with the love life of "The Bachelorette" star Kaitlyn Bristowe, with whom the comedian teamed up for a segment on the reality-dating show.
"I, like, love her a little too much, like, it makes me uncomfortable," said Schumer, who joined Bristowe for a segment this season on the reality-dating competition. "She's so cool. She's the best, because she's honest, and she was fun. You never see, like, an honest version of someone on there. Everyone's like, 'Yes, and we held hands, but nothing more, because we're not married.'"
Asked whether Bristowe should choose Nick Viall or Shawn Booth at the end of the show, Schumer preferred "that Ben dude" — perhaps Ben Higgins, who was eliminated on this week's episode. But when pressed to choose between the two finalists, Schumer relented. "I guess Shawn, just because I don't want it to be Nick," she said. "Nick's a worm. I feel like if a worm had a [human] head, it's Nick! No offense."
One of the the biggest names in comedy, Schumer has gone from honing her act at clubs across the country to agreeing to open for Madonna at New York City performances this September. But that doesn't necessarily mean she's confident about bringing the house down.
"I think I'm going to bomb," she told Kathie Lee and Hoda. "If I were there to see Madonna, and then there was a comedian out there, like, 'Dating's hard,' I'd be like, 'Shut up! I want to hear 'La Isla Bonita.'"
