'I'm tired of pretending,' says the 'Sisters' star, whose film opened the same day as the sci-fi juggernaut
With the immensely anticipated release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and the rest of the Sisters team don’t want you to forget about their film, which also hit theaters Friday. So, the cast dropped by Late Night on Thursday in an attempt to persuade Star Wars fans to fit Sisters into their watching-Star–Wars-over-and-over-again schedules.
Host Seth Meyers gave Sisters stars Fey, Poehler, Ike Barinholtz, Rachel Dratch, Amy Poehler, and writer Paula Pell each their own action figure from Star Wars: The Force Awakens to pitch their movie. The process started tamely with Barinholtz holding up a Kylo Ren figurine, the character played by Adam Driver in the movie, and saying,”Why would you see a movie with the guy from Girls when you could see a movie with the guy from The Mindy Project?”
Fey was clearly thrown off at having to impersonate the new droid PZ-4CO, and decided that he might have an Italian accent: “I am a creature. I don’t have any relatives, but if I did, I wish I could have two sisters.” Movie pitch: Sisters 2: Ro-Bro costarring PZ-4CO as Fey and Poehler’s adopted brother.

The real highlight of the segment was Poehler’s hilarious reaction at having to impersonate Constable Zuvio, whose name she read three times and couldn’t remember. “I don’t care! I don’t care about Star Wars and I never f—ing did. I’m tired of pretending; I dont care about it.”
Poehler did do a little bit about Zuvio hiding his face because he’s embarrassed that he’s seeing Star Wars, and then Dratch went on to do a Wookiee impression, but Rudolph showed some solidarity with Poehler by making BB-8 say, “I will never know the touch of a real woman. Please go see Sisters.”
