If there’s one thing fans know about game show host and comedian, Billy Eichner, it’s that he’s a huge Meryl Streep fan. He’s gone on record about just how amazing she is, sat two feet away from her when she was guest on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and even getting into a screaming match with one of his contestants over who was better: Meryl Streep or Glenn Close. Needless to say, that kind of fandom means Eichner must know a lot about the Oscar-winning actress. While at PaleyFest 2014 for the Parks and Recreation chat with Retta and his other co-stars, VH1’s Kate Spencer put Eichner on the spot in what we like to to call “Billy on the Streep.”
Similarly to how he quizzes contestants on Billy on the Street, we asked Eichner rapid-fire questions about the actress to find out if he knows when she won her first Oscar (Kramer vs. Kramer), the name and occupation of her husband (Gummer, sculptor) and what TV shows her daughters have been on (Mamie Gummer starred on Emily Owens, M.D.).
