Speaking to HELLO! he said that while the father-of-three might be older, it makes him wiser... and funnier.

When asked who the most amusing of his co-stars was he admitted: "Al Roker. Al is so funny. He's also so quick-witted. Some of it is born from his encyclopedic knowledge of everything. He's wit smart. That's also because he's been around longer. He knows more because he's seen and experienced more. He's as kind as he is funny."
