Jimmy Fallon and Amy Poehler Learned a Surprising Secret About Tina Fey on The Tonight Show

Originally posted 07/15/2015 11:00PM

[YOUTUBE "M-n5vol3CEE"] Saturday Night Live fans should be happy to see Jimmy Fallon reunite with his fellow "Weekend Update" anchors Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to do anything, but the fact that this Tonight Show clip has them revealing surprising secrets from their past makes it all the better.

Fey, 45, is the clear winner in this game. Her big secret – yes, we're spoiling it, because you should be watching the video just to enjoy these three be funny regardless – is that she was once mistaken for a prostitute in a Monaco casino. That's a pretty good story.

In addition to Wet Hot's original players (Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Ian Black, Joe Lo Truglio, Molly Shannon, Elizabeth Banks, and director David Wain in an on-camera role), newcomers Kristen Wiig, Jordan Peele, H. Jon Benjamin, Jason Schwartzman, John Slattery, Michael Cera, "Weird Al" Yankovic and Jon Hamm signed on for the prequel sequel, upping the wackiness exponentially.

Among other things, the Netflix original series promises the characters from the 2001 film are younger and hotter (or, you know, 14 years older and often wearing terrible wigs). Here are some of the highlights of the nutty trailer:
