Blockbuster news! Keri Russell, star of The Americans and Felicity, is bald! And has been this entire time, meaning her famous hair from Felicity was nothing more than a ratty wig! Reports from my sources tell me that Russell was up for the role of Lex Luthor, but then the trash men showed up and emptied the dumpster before I heard the rest.
In reality, Keri Russell brought this wig from the set of The Americans and asked Jimmy Fallon to wear it on The Tonight Show. It is a bit of a rite of passage on her show and Jimmy was more than willing to throw the wig on his head.
It isn’t much more than that, but I’m a sucker for a good Color Me Badd joke. I’m an admirer of doing it “till we both wake up” myself and I feel they’re overlooked for their style more than anything. Bring them back, Fallon. You have the power!
