Will Ferrell was absolutely starstruck when he got to meet and work with Harrison Ford for the movie Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. As it turns out, the gifted impressionist picked up on Ford's way of speaking and has cranked out a very impressive older Harrison Ford impression. Cheers to Will Ferrell!
The Game of Thrones beauty Emilia Clarke showcased her vocal talents on Jimmy Kimmel when she did an awesome job capturing how a Valley Girl can talk. Her talents just keep increasing.
Kevin Spacey has won two Academy Awards, has been critically acclaimed in film, television, and the stage, and on top of that, he is an incredibly sharp impressionist. Playing 'Wheel of Impressions' on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, he made the audience go wild with his outstanding takes on Johnny Carson, Christopher Walken, and Bill Clinton.
Seth MacFarlane has three successful cartoon shows, just aired his new show The Orville, has directed three feature films, hosted the Academy Awards, released Grammy-nominated albums, stands up for human rights, and do you feel bad yet because he's accomplished more in his life than you would accomplish if you had sixteen different lifespans to do the same?
Bradley Cooper is one of those more quiet celebrities who will suddenly hit you with an amazing impression. His experience working on the film Wedding Crashers has led him to develop quality impressions of co-stars Owen Wilson and Christopher Walken, amongst others. He seems to really nail down the actors he works with, so if by chance you ever work with Bradley Cooper on a film, he'll probably be impersonating you on a talk show in less than a year.
Long before he was one of the biggest movie comedy stars in history, Jim Carrey rose to fame in stand-up as an impressionist. His comedic rubber face allowed to him to distort his entire face to transform into the person he was impersonating, on top of doing very credible voices. He abandoned the impressions early on as he felt he would plateau, but to this day, he remains one of the best impressionists comedy has seen.
Between winning Oscars and selling hit albums, we already knew Jamie Foxx was the kind of guy who could do it all. But his impressions were put to the test on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, when he had to do musical impressions of John Legend, Jennifer Hudson, and Mick Jagger. Needless to say, he smashed it.
Arguably the best impressionist working today (having hit TV shows and working Vegas nightclubs), Frank Caliendo's ability to capture the physicality and the voices of the people he impersonates are unmatched. People like Morgan Freeman have always been a struggle for people to do, but Mr. Caliendo consistently nails it. There's probably not a celebrity that he can't do at this point.
While Seth MacFarlane was showcasing his incredible talents voicing most of the Family Guy cast on The Graham Norton Show, Tom Cruise hijacked the interview with his hilariously spot-on impression of Donald Duck. Not sure how anyone could really make that noise, but it's very impressive!
A giant of stage and screen, Tom Hiddleston's career is highly acclaimed and he is considered one of the best actors working today. On top of that, he's taken to showcasing his talents as an impressionist while doing talk shows and interviews. He can bang out a number of awesome voices, such as Owen Wilson, Chris Evans, Orson Welles, and Samuel L. Jackson.
The former Weekend Update host on SNL and an acclaimed stand-up, Norm Macdonald's tenure on SNL didn't recognize his ability to impersonate other celebrities, but Norm really has a talent for getting those impressions down. Seen here, he also does the best Christopher Walken impression ever...maybe...
On top of her ability to belt out those tunes, she's able to sing incredibly well in a wide variety of voices; as evidenced on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, when she sang as Celine Dion, Britney Spears, and Shakira.
The king of rapid-fire impressions, Ross Marquand went hard on Jimmy Kimmel Live! when he did Oscar acceptance speeches as a variety of famous actors, crushing it with each and every one.
Dana Carvey was THE star of Saturday Night Live in the late 80's and early 90's, and is known as one of the best comedic impressionists in history. He took his talents to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, where he tackled Halloween themed topics as a variety of celebrities.
Known as one of the best stand-ups today and the creator of the TV show Louie, Louis C.K let slip that he might be a talented impressionist as well when he did Jimmy Fallon...on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Fallon was clearly pleased with the impression, doubling over in laughter at the shock and accuracy of Louis' impression of him.
James Marsden has now been added to the list of 'people who can do incredibly Matthew McConnaughey impressions' when he rocked it on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and took it to the next level as well.
Is that Leonardo DiCaprio or Jim Carrey? The normally very stoic Leonardo DiCaprio completely transforms his face completely in this interview to basically become Jack Nicholson. The rubber face is real on this one.
Adding to the already incredibly long list of why Chris Pratt is awesome, he has managed to perfectly capture a British accent in this interview with Graham Norton. He developed it after watching The Only Way Is Essex, and it's fair to say it's one of the best cases of an American doing a British accent.
On top of having the best name for an actor ever, Benedict Cumberbatch has shown his knack for voices, doing an incredible job of various impressions while promoting the movie The Imitation Game.
Anyone who can do a credible Matthew McConnaughey is in the good books, and Matt Damon displayed this on The Late Show with David Letterman. Things were going well until, as Damon pointed out, it "started to turn into Bill Clinton".
