People of America, Tina Fey needs your help.

Tina Fey brought back her uncanny Sarah Palin impression during an appearance on Bravo's "Inside the Actors Studio" this week. The "Admission" star was prompted by host James Lipton to answer questions in character, a recurring segment of his, which winks back at her impressions from the 2008 presidential campaign that were comic gold. We have Fey's "SNL" and improv background to thank for her glorious resurrection of the former Alaska governor. Fey definitely separated the mavericks from the "not mavericks," that's for sure.

Tina Fey is working on a "Mean Girls" reunion of sorts, but sadly it won't be in the form of another movie. That is so the opposite of fetch. The 2004 comedy, which will celebrate its 10-year anniversary in April, was adapted by Fey from Rosalind Wiseman's 2002 book "Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and Other Realities of Adolescence. " PHOTOS: Lindsay Lohan career retrospective The cult classic starred a pre-rehab Lindsay Lohan, now 27,  pre-"Notebook" Rachel McAdams, now 35, and the troupe of "Plastics" - pre-"Veronica Mars" Amanda Seyfriend and post-"Party of Five" Lacey Chabert.
