Special Agent Dana Scul &mdash Uh, We Mean, Kate McKinnon Chats with Jimmy Fallon About Halloween and SNL
1:00 pm, January 22nd | by Kady Ruth Ashcraft
The woman behind SNL‘s Justin Bieber, Ellen Degeneres, and Cheri Oteri as Barbara Walters stopped by Jimmy Fallon last night to talk shop. Kate McKinnon, who is rapidly approaching her two year anniversary at Saturday Night Live (only two?! We feel as if we’ve lived lifetimes with McKinnon), revealed her past as the three-time winner of Northshore Middle School’s Halloween costume contest and her mother’s pitches to the Writer’s Room.
I don’t want to challenge McKinnon’s claim to the Halloween throne but one year I dress up as an amalgamation of Albert Einstein and the Statue of Liberty. Please, please — don’t call me a hero. No need to lift me on your shoulders. Cancel the ticker tape parade. (Seriously: cancel it. It wasn’t that I was the l’enfant terrible of costumes, I was just miserably indecisive.) I’ll let McKinnon keep her accolades.
