A Little Impression Goes A Long Way

As the saying goes, "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery," and this week's Very Important Puzzler, actor Justin Long has a knack for impressions.

As the saying goes, "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery," and this week's Very Important Puzzler, actor Justin Long, knows this phrase all too well. While he's known for starring in romantic comedies like He's Just Not That Into You and Going the Distance, Long's knack for celebrity impersonations comes in handy for a game in which he brings Woody Allen, Michael J. Fox and others to life. Plus, channel your inner Gollum, rework some classic Disney tunes and play a game that asks you to find the common denominator between four seemingly unrelated things.
