Watch Kristen Wiig’s Awkward Peyton Manning Impersonation on ‘Fallon’
Super Bowl 50 champion Peyton Manning dropped by The Tonight Show Thursday to share some reflections from the big game. But if the Denver Broncos quarterback’s memories seemed hazy, there’s a good reason: He was being impersonated by Zoolander 2 actress Kristen Wiig, who hilariously fumbled answers to Jimmy Fallon’s questions.
