Jeff Daniels Tells Terrifying Story Of Getting Face Stuck In Wall Plaster

In an appearance with Jimmy Fallon, Jeff Daniels recalls a terrifying six-hour ordeal he went through after a makeup artist at 'Saturday Night Live' accidentally applied plaster to his face instead of a face mold.

"I'm there at 7 o'clock, I just had the pre-show dinner, I had jambalaya," Daniels begins about the procedure the day before his hosting gig.

"They put the mask on. So, it's like a quarter inch of this white stuff and they had two straws in my nose. Everything was covered but my nostrils."

It was only supposed to take 15 minutes but the "genius" makeup artist used the wrong material.

"They used plaster, like you would put — oh, I dont know — on your wall!"

Daniels says it got to the point that the makeup artist tried to take the mask off with a hammer, after Daniels held down vomit from his jambalaya, and SNL producer Lorne Michaels brought in a plastic surgeon to cut his eyelashes off.

"This took 6 hours," Daniels laughs. "By 1 in the morning, I was ready to go and do SNL."
