Impressions:

He was the star of a memorable sketch with Peyton Manning, in which he used "Casino Royale" by Herb Alpert to pump up a room full of basketball players. His motivational dance gets so out of control that even Manning joins in and starts playing his leg like a guitar. The sketch was featured on SNL: The Best of 06-07 and SNL Sports Extra '09. A remake of the sketch (where a coach tries to motivate a losing swim team) appeared on the Michael Phelps/Lil Wayne episode as part of the closing credits of the SNL special, SNL Sports Extra '09 (a clip show special featuring many memorable sketches and segments from episodes hosted by and featuring sports stars, such as Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, LeBron James, and Michael Phelps).

In a March 2009 interview on Anytime with Bob Kushell Forte admitted he "can't do accents very well."
