VIDEO: Laurie Metcalf Talks Playing a Parallel Universe Hilary Clinton
Metcalf, who is nominated for a Tony for playing Hillary Clinton, told Fallon about how lucky she feels, saying, "I'm thanking my lucky stars that I get to work with incredible people at the top of their game year after year.

Watch the full interview below!
Behind closed doors in the state of New Hampshire during the early days of 2008, a former First Lady named Hillary (Metcalf) is in a desperate bid to save her troubled campaign for President of the United States against Barack (James). Her husband, Bill (Lithgow), sees things one way; her campaign manager, Mark (Orth), sees things another.
