Former talk show host Conan O’Brien’s old interview with disgraced actor Danny Masterson went viral after the latter was jailed for rape on Thursday.

After Masterson, best known for his role as Steven Hyde on “That ’70s Show,” was sentenced to 30 years in prison Thursday for raping two women two decades ago, his 2004 appearance on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” went viral. During the interview, Masterson discussed his Long Island accent — or lack thereof — with O’Brien.

Here is the video:

Masterson said that his friend, actor Bodhi Elfman, “always teases” him. “He says ‘Hi, my name is Danny Masterson, would you like to touch my balls?’” Masterson said, jokingly, emphasizing the final word in a heavy accent.

“So why are you asking people to do that? That’s the more important question,” O’Brien responded.

“I mean, you got ’em, you know what I mean? Everybody should grab,” Masterson replied.

“I’ve heard about you,” O’Brien responded. “And you’ll be caught soon, I know you will.”

“I will,” Masterson said.

The clip went viral on X, formerly known as Twitter, especially after Masterson’s sentencing on Thursday. The 47-year-old actor chose not to react as Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Charlaine Olmedo sentenced him. The two victims he had raped described the trauma they had experienced in his hands. For each count of rape, Masterson was handed down 15 years – a duration he will be serving consecutively. It is the maximum sentence permitted under the law.

“When you raped me, you stole from me,” one of the women testified in court, looking directly at the actor. “That’s what rape is, a theft of the spirit.” “You are pathetic, disturbed, and completely violent. The world is better off with you in prison.”
