Why Kristen Wiig, Annie Mumolo & James Corden Were Fired From The Crown

  • In this clip from The Late Late Show with James Corden, we learn that Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, stars of the film Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar, were actually in the original casts of The Queen's Gambit, The Crown, and The Undoing, if you can believe it. We also learn why they were fired from each of those shows.

    For The Queen's Gambit, they tried to change the game, literally, and it didn't go over well. Plus, Wiig was drunk.

    In The Crown, Mumolo was Prince Charles and Wiig was Diana, and Corden was the Queen. 

    Then there was The Undoing, where Wiig's wigs kept multiplying, and Mumolo assumed the only person who could solve the crime was Sherlock Holmes.
