American actress Keke Palmer, known for playing leading and character roles in comedy-drama production, appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and shared her experience working with Vice President Kamala Harris, the time her reaction to Dick Cheney became a meme, her upcoming movie “Nope and working with Fallon on the upcoming game show.
Keke’s Recent Work With Kamala Harris…
The Prime Time Emmy Award-winning actress Keke Palmer appeared on The Tonight Show and was asked by Jimmy Fallon about working with Kamala Harris. Fallon started by saying that Keke Palmer has got such a huge social media following and that she is going great career-wise.
While showing a photo of Keke and the Vice President of the United States, Fallon asked Keke: “I just saw you did something recent with VP Kamala Harris–wait–Now do you get nervous, when you–This was a couple of weeks ago.” She replied, “I mean it is nerve-wracking but just because I want to make sure, that you know I’m doing my best, you know what I mean? The Secret Service was there–I was like-How y’all doin’? I wanted to make sure that I was professional. I am not gonna hurt the VP”
Keke Imitates, We Did It, Joe…
Fallon replied, “No, you’re very professional.” As they both laughed, Fallon said that “You made her laugh by doing an impression of her.” Keke said excitedly, “Oh, my gosh. Her meme is my favourite–We Did It, Joe.” She said it exactly the way the VP does. Jimmy surely burst out in laughter so we can understand how much the VP herself must have laughed after being imitated.
She continued making Kamala’s impression, and as she clenched her teeth, she said: “You’re the President of The United States Of America.” She added, “I had to tell her, because I am like, Girl! That Meme, “We Did It, Joe”…” And the two burst out in laughter again.
Keke’s Meme, Sorry To This Man…
Jimmy continued, “Speaking of Vice Presidents, by the way, a few years ago, you did this thing for–I think it’s a Vanity Fair thing–A lie detector test.” During the lie detector test, they showed Keke a photo of VP Dick Cheney and she did not recognise him. Jimmy revealed that her reaction became an instant meme.
Jimmy even played the hilarious clip wherein Keke states that she doesn’t know who the man is and that “he could be walking down the street, but I wouldn’t recognize him, sorry to this man.” And guess what, “Sorry to this man” was everywhere on social media as Keke failed to recognize him.
Keke said, “The internet is so funny, because how would I–I had no idea–I really was just sorry to the man because I knew I did not know something. You know what I mean. That was like a hit movie in theatres. I was like in “Jaws” when it came out.” They both kept repeating, “Sorry to this man”, and continued laughing.
Keke’s Upcoming Movie…
Jimmy added, “Nope”, is going to be one of the biggest movies out there. I cannot wait for this. I don’t know anything about it. I am scared, is it gonna scare me?” Keke replied, “So there is a lot going on. You’re definitely gonna have some spooky vibes. But, you know, what Jordan does with his films is, the horror that he really puts in the film is a metaphor for the horrors of the world.”
She continued but saying that you can really relate to Jordan Peele’s movies, be it, the spectacle, the exploitation, or our obsession with attention. “It’s a lot of different stuff, a lot of nuggets, that you’re gonna keep pulling back,” she added. Jimmy replied, “I think this is the year of Keke Palmer, by the way. You are unbelievable. And well deserved, you work your butt off.”
If you don’t know, “Nope” is a horror-looking, sci-fi movie, which is the latest one from the creator of “Get Out and Us”. Following the massive successes of “Get Out and Us”, Jordan Peele is back with what is expected to be one of the must-see new movies of 2022, “Nope”.
Once again serving as writer and director, “Nope “is fully expected to be another wholly original idea that also provides Peele’s unique perspective on current social issues. It stars Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, and Steven Yeun as residents of an isolated town who witness a mysterious and abnormal event.
The premise of the movie revolves around the fact that after random objects falling from the sky result in the death of their father, ranch-owning siblings OJ and Emerald Haywood attempt to capture video evidence of an unidentified flying object with the help of tech salesman Angel Torres and documentarian Antlers Holst.
Keke Palmer is starring as Emeral Haywood while Daniel Kaluuya is starring as OJ Haywood. Jimmy Fallon even played a clip from her upcoming movie “Nope” and revealed that Nope comes in theatres and IMAX on Friday (July 22). He concluded, “Catch “Password” August 9 at 10:00 pm. on NBC after America’s Got Talent.”
