Last Night on Late Night

Michelle Pfeiffer is the queen of Password on The Tonight Show

Posted on

Michelle Pfeiffer is a three-time Oscar nominee, star of HBO’s Wizard of Lies and the upcoming Murder on the Orient Express remake, one of the most beautiful people on the face of the planet (according to Barbara Walters) — and she’s also really, really good at Password.

Twin Peaks star Kyle MacLachlan, also guesting on The Tonight Show Thursday night, didn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell when he and The Roots’ Tariq Trotter faced Pfeiffer and Jimmy Fallon in the word-guessing game. With Pfeiffer only able to provide Fallon with a single-word clue, she got him to guess the answer instantly. And you know what they say about drawing the first blood, the game was won.

Any other opponent and MacLachlan could’ve pulled out at least a few points, but the ’80s and ’90s queen of the silver screen took no prisoners. Watch the game play out in the clip above.
