September 25, 2012

September 25, 2012: David Spade, whose new movie 'Hotel Transylvania' hits theatres this Friday, is in the red chair this evening at 7 pm.

In this clip, he tells George about the time he almost made a move on fellow comedian Ellen DeGeneres. Apparently he had a crush on Ellen when they performed stand-up together in Dallas. David would hang out at her place and watch TV on her big screen. And he thought she was rich because she had a Walkman.

Here are a couple of key quotes:

"We go home and I say Ellen's kind of hot. Is she single? Maybe I should go out with her? Then I got the news!"

"She's a good friend. She's always been nice to me."
