Kate McKinnon to Ellen: "I'm Ellen"

Written by | Miscellaneous

SNL‘s resident Ellen DeGeneres, Kate McKinnon, visited The Ellen Show‘s resident Ellen DeGeneres, Ellen DeGeneres.


McKinnon, who’s also SNL‘s Hillary Clinton and (wonderfully) Justin Bieber, went on Ellen in advance of the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot she’s starring in with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Leslie Jones (out July 15). But before making her way to the couch, she bogarted the monologue and then the two figured out who gets to say, “I’m Ellen.” Which of course led to talking about Portia, a baby goat, and dancing.

The two have done the bit before, which involved some really good Ellen-dancing and some really good Ellen-sitting. In the actual interview, DeGeneres asked McKinnon if there’s pressure to impersonate someone when they’re on hand. Yes, she said, and it “comes out of absolute love.”
