Julianne Moore Emoted on the Streets of Times Square in One of the Best Billy Eichner Bits Yet

Times Square is overflowing with costumed superheroes, Elmo’s, and topless women, but in Billy on the Street, Billy Eichner gave tourists what they really want: Academy Award–winning actress Julianne Moore.

Moore gamely accosts passersby and performs monologues as Jules from The Kids Are All Right, Maude from The Big Lebowski, and Linda Partridge from Magnolia. At one point she even cries on command, earning a hug (but no tip) from a highly confused tourist. “Hey Elmo,” Eichner spits. “Take a hard look at a natural redhead.”
