Keri Russell Talks 'Mickey Mouse Club,' 'The Americans' With Jimmy Fallon (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Keri Russell may be known for her more dramatic roles these days, but the actress got her big break singing and dancing on the early '90s incarnation of the "Mickey Mouse Club." The then-15-year-old Russell appeared alongside fellow future stars like Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Ryan Gosling.

On "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" (weekdays at 12:35 a.m. EST on NBC), the host brought out a picture of the "Mickey Mouse Club" cast and Russell mocked her teenage self. "As if this photo in itself wasn't awkward enough, what is the pose about?" she joked. "You know, I think I'm cool right there."

Russell also opened up about her current work on FX's "The Americans" (Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EST). She reminisced about a stunt she had to do in the first episode that involved kicking someone's head through the wall. "It's a little horrifying," she admitted about being told to do the stunt "really hard once" so they didn't have to do it again. "So what'd you do?" Fallon asked. "I f*****' did it," she said frankly, causing the audience to erupt in laughter.

"Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" airs weekdays at 12:35 a.m. EST on NBC and "The Americans" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EST on FX.
