Ellie Kemper Pinch Hits for “Ellen”
She proved her on-camera chops with high-profile gigs like “The Office” and “Bridesmaids,” and it seems Ellie Kemper can also anchor a daytime talk show like a seasoned pro.
The “21 Jump Street” comedienne took over “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” today (January 24), filling in for a flu-ridden Ellen.
After throwing down some super-cute retro dance movies, Kemper told the crowd, “I know what you’re thinking: Ellen sure does look different in person!”
Ellie also confessed that she initially thought DeGeneres was pranking her, and she definitely had a case of the nerves- “It’s working, because I am scared right now.”
