Poor Kristen Wiig. Every time she's booked on The Tonight Show she's bumped for other celebrities, like Peyton Manning, Khaleesi from Game of Thrones (previously), JoJo from The Bachelorette, and Michael Jordon, who are all definitely not Kristen Wiig in disguise.

A) These are hilarious, particularly Khaleesi.
B) There was also an appearance where she came on as Harry Styles, which appears to have been scrubbed from the internet - anyone have any idea why??

hepta, I wasn't even sure there was a full Harry Styles bit because I only found a few seconds of it. I'd love to see it. As someone who has never seen Game of Thrones, I loved that you don't really need to know anything about the people she's impersonating.

Actually, I don't think she thinks she really needs to know anything about the people she's impersonating.

I give major props to Wiig for doing improv in a mainstream media format. In a culture where scripted and "safe" is the norm, it's refreshing to see someone just dive into the deep end. I seldom have honest laughter watching talk show skits, but this does it for me.

These clips are wonderful. They would be even better if Fallon could do improv too, or at least play it straight.

Fun fact: Kristen Wiig is also a mixxxxxxologist.

I would be scared to be in a relationship with her.

"So. Explain yourself. I found you in bed with the New England Patriots..."

"Well, you see..."

She is damn fine at deadpan stone-faced flat out lying...

Is the premise of these bits improv, in that Kimmel surprises her with the character she's supposed to do?
