The legendary actress surprised both the host and viewers with her unexpected appearance during Wednesday’s show.
Streep joined in remotely to read a poem from actor John Lithgow’s new anti-Trump book, Trumpty Dumpty Wanted A Crown: Verses For A Despotic Age.
The actress brought her signature drama to Lithgow’s poem, The Toreys, also known as The Tiger King.
The rhyme tells the story of a political party that allows a tiger to become king.
Samuel L. Jackson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Glenn Close and Whoopi Goldberg are among the other stars who have participated in reading stories for the book’s virtual tour.
