Bush, and Daryl Hammond as Al Gore speaking on the phone, as Gore hopes to negotiate possible new role for himself in the White House.

Soon Jimmy Fallon and Mick Jagger square off through a mirror, as Fallon expertly imitates the rock icon as they both try to decide what moves to use on the program. Maya Rudolph aptly lampoons Donatella Versace, smoking in her bathtub as she interviews guests on her self-promoting show. Jackman plays a hot German male model (who's stayed with Donatella for eight months), and Mick Jagger does an expert Karl Lagerfeld. Lastly, Hugh Jackman recalls his Christmases in Australia, where a boxing kangaroo would visit each year.
