15 Stars in Sarah Cooper’s Netflix Special and the Oddballs They Play, From Billy Bush to Satan
“Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine” finally dropped on Netflix on Tuesday — and your favorite Trump lip-sync star did not disappoint with the celebrity cameos.
In the roughly 50-minute comedy special, directed by Natasha Lyonne with Maya Rudolph, Cooper primarily stars as herself, the host of a morning news show called “Everything’s Fine” where, you guessed it, everyone pretends everything is just fine despite the chaos that is 2020 and the Trump administration.
If you’re looking for more Trump lip-sync moments, Cooper delivers — and adds a couple more people to her repertoire. But she’s also joined by a lengthy guest star list that includes Fred Armisen, Megan Thee Stallion, Jane Lynch, Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Hamm, Aubrey Plaza, Connie Chung, Ben Stiller, Helen Mirren, Jonathan Van Ness, Winona Ryder, Marisa Tomei, Danielle Brooks, Tommy Davidson, Jordan Black, Marcella Arguello, Eddie Pepitone and Maya Rudolph.
Yup, that’s it.

-Jane Lynch as “K.J. Dillard”-
Lynch appears as K.J. Dillard, a cupcake-making pastry chef whose “can I speak to your manager” haircut is a dead giveaway. Almost immediately, Dillard demands that Cooper show some I.D. to prove that she’s the host of the show and, when she’s not satisfied, calls the police.
Her full name? Karen June Dillard. Yeah…she’s a Karen.

It’s the MyPillow — er, MrPillow — guy! During a pretend commercial break for the morning show, Hamm appears as the inventor of MrPillow, Steven Windell, who is clearly modeled after Mike Lindell, the pillow inventor and Trump supporter who has recently been promoting an unproven “cure” for COVID-19.
