Ellie Kemper Fills in for Ellen DeGeneres as Talk Show Host!

Ellie Kemper hits the stage to fill in as host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show on the episode airing Friday (January 24).

“I’m here because unfortunately Ellen is sick. She has that terrible flu bug that’s going around. It’s bad. It’s really sad. We’ve tented her and she’ll be better soon,” the 33-year-old The Office actress said in her monologue.

“When they called me this morning and asked me to host, I thought of course that Ellen was trying to prank me. I actually thought it was Ellen’s most elaborate scare ever. But it turns out it’s working because I am scared right now,” she added.

FYI: Ellie is wearing a Trina Turk outfit and Brian Atwood shoes.
