Kristen Wiig Goes on ‘Jimmy Fallon’ Not as Herself, But as Michael Jordan [VIDEOS]
Last night on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,’ Kristen Wiig was scheduled to appear, but as a surprise, Fallon told the audience that Michael Jordan was there instead. Enter Kristen in a basketball jersey, Air Jordans and a bad bald cap to play Michael Jordan for the entire interview. (Kind of.)
She doesn’t change her voice, but she tries to answer questions as if she were Michael Jordan. Which actually worked out pretty well, at least in terms of amusement — because she doesn’t know much about the basketball star, including that he doesn’t sign his name with a heart over the “i,” nor the names of anyone he’s played with.
Prepare for shenanigans!
You can check out the entire interview above and below — we also have a bonus video in which Wiig sings Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky.’ It’s almost like you’re watching Michael Jordan and Jimmy Fallon duet together.
