Ellie Kemper is the breakout star of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and now she can add one new job to her resumé : Today Show Entertainment/Comedian/Anchor. She has been hired to fill in any gaps when the main anchors away, she's kinda like the substitute that everyone knows and loves because she's funny and nice. The big announcement was announced today (Thursday)!
Willie Geist, one of the co-anchors on Today, said Kemper will be spending a lot of time in the studio, on Twitter, and hanging out with Today's Take gang. Kemper has a very strong presence in pop culture hits They Came Together, Bridesmaids, and The Office.
Obviously when she got to work this morning she pulled up in a NYC taxi blaring the theme song to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Kemper said ,"This is my summer camp. Thank you for being my counselors!"
Al Rocher and Ellie Kemper are BFFs too. Lol.
Rocher and Kemper cohosted before and danced the day away as you can see in the gif. Al Rocher called his time with Kemper as the "best day ever".
"It was not only your best day, my mother, Dottie Kemper, adores you," Kemper said to Roker. "I mean she adores all of you, but I gotta say you, anyway, you have a special place."
I know I'll be tuning in to see Ellie Kemper!
