Taran Killam, who is well on his way to completely blowing up on Saturday Night Live, has actually been around for a while. Like everyone is of his generation, he actually made his television debut on MTV’s Undressed back in 1999, did a stint on MadTV in 2001, and bounced around in bit roles. You may not remember this, but he was also actually in Scrubs, playing Jimmy the Overly Touchy Orderly.
A couple of weeks ago, on SNL, he nearly stole the entire show away from host Lena Dunham, and one of his more impressive segment was as Matthew McConaughey on “Weekend Update” talking about True Detective. It was not, however, Taran Killam’s first McConaughey impression. Back in 1999, he, two other guys, and Olivia Munn made this terrific spoof of Three Men and a Baby called Three Matthew McConaugheys and a Baby for Funny or Die.
