Melissa McCarthy's Impersonation Of Matt Foley Was The Highlight of ‘SNL 40’

Melissa McCarthy channeled her inner Chris Farley on SNL40 last night....

Chris Farley as motivational speaker Matt Foley.

Everyone’s favorite Saturday Night Live segment — Weekend Update — had an all-star lineup for the SNL40 segment. Weekend Update veterans Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and (the first woman to sit behind the Weekend Update desk) Jane Curtin acted as hosts, while  Edward Norton and Emma Stone did impressions of their favorite Weekend Update guests (Stefon and Roseanne Roseannadanna).

But it was Melissa McCarthy’s impersonation of Chris Farley’s Matt Foley, motivational speaker, that stole the show. She had Farley’s mannerisms down cold, and even destroyed a piece of set: the Weekend Update desk.

You can watch Stone as Gilda Radner’s Roseanne Roseannadanna and Norton as Bill Hader’s Stefon below.
