Funny woman Kristen Wiig brought the laughs during her latest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ when she sat down for an entire interview dressed as Super Bowl champ Peyton Manning! Even the pro comedians couldn’t suppress their laughter during the sit-down! Watch it here!
Kristen Wiig, 41, has done it again! For her interview on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Feb. 12, the Zoolander 2 actress dressed up as Super Bowl champion Peyton Manning, and really got into character for her hilarious impression. She even showed off some of her NFL-worthy quarterback skills! Watch the hilarious video below!
Rather than using her appearance on The Tonight Show to promote her role in the soon-to-be-released Zoolander 2, Kristen chose to do her entire interview as the Denver Broncos quarterback, despite knowing next to nothing about him, or football for that matter. Dressed in Peyton’s full uniform complete with a #18 jersey and a blonde Manning-esque wig, Kristen sat down with the late-night host to reveal how she felt in the final moments of the Super Bowl match on Feb. 7, as well as some other lesser known facts about the NFL pro.
“Peyton Manning, I can’t believe…first of all, I can’t believe you’re still wearing the uniform all week long,” Jimmy told his guest. “Thank you for doing this. I know this is last minute. You look good.” The Ghostbusters actress, who didn’t seem to know much about Super Bowl 50, said she was “still so tired” from Sunday’s big game. “I tried really hard. I’m thinking I’m so far from the line. I’m far away from the line and I have to get it to the…I gotta do it, gotta get this ball to the guy.”
As for the final score of the game, Kristen once again seemed at a loss for words, hilariously replying, “it was 14-6…in my mind anyways.” Unsurprisingly, Kristen also didn’t seem to know which player was named MVP, either. “He didn’t do anything wrong the whole game,” she said. “I was like, ‘I’m so proud of you. Just go out tonight. Just go out tonight! Don’t worry about it. Just have a good time.'”
The former SNL star also fibbed about other aspects of Peyton’s history, including where he went to school and what he studied (Note: it was not the University of Florida, like Kristen suggested). During a rapid-fire round, Jimmy also asked her to pick her favorite pre-game meal, favorite color, favorite hobby, favorite band, favorite clothing store and favorite yoga pose. Well, just let you experience those laughs for yourself though.
The whole thing ended with Kristen showing off her not-so-spot-on football skills, throwing a gold ball in the general direction of a small hole across the stage.
Of course, this wasn’t the first time that Kristen has declined to appear as herself on The Tonight Show. In previous appearances, she’s pretended to be Michael Jordan, One Direction’s Harry Styles and even Khaleesi from Game Of Thrones. Clearly, she’s got a knack for pageantry!
