Chrissy Metz’s Michael McDonald impression is Jimmy Fallon approved. The Golden Globe- and Emmy-nominated actor from This Is Us demonstrated her special talent on The Tonight Show Monday, proving she and Fallon are “twinsies” in this regard.
“These are all my impressions,” the host said when he heard she can also do Aaron Neville and Shakira. “I wanna be Jimmy Fallon is basically what it is,” she joked.
Now that we know this, the Tonight Show producers should call up Metz closer to the premiere of This Is Us season 2 for a few rounds of the Wheel of Impressions game.
When the show returns, Metz says we’ll see more of Kate following in her mother’s footsteps as a singer. “Her face off. Like, she can sing her face off,” she said. Mandy Moore, playing Kate’s mom Rebecca, is already back in the makeup chair for her on-set transformation.
Watch Metz’s impression in the clip above as we await more new looks at the forthcoming episodes.
