Is there anything Matthew McConaughey can't do? Or, more precisely, is there anything that he can't do excellently? Turns out, the Oscar winner just might have a weak spot, and although it's not a big one, it's one that 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon gleefully exploited for his own edification on last night's show.

Here's a terrifying idea: what if you thought that your apartment was haunted by various ghosties, only to learn that it was you specifically that was haunted by, well, just various ghosties. This is the apparent pickle that 'SNL' star Cecily Strong finds herself in, as a medium recently advised the comedienne that her "lack of boundaries" means that she's bringing home all kinds of weird spiritual stuff. O...kay.

Typically, when the 'Tonight Show' trots out one of their meticulously matched up music compilations, it's newsman Brian Williams who is tasked with "singing" whatever Jimmy Fallon and his band of evil geniuses have determined is most fitting. This time around, however, Williams is out, and a pair of topical public figures are very much in: Taylor Swift and President Barack Obama.

EDIT
by Kate Erbland November 05, 2014 09:29 AM
'Late Night' host Seth Meyers has basically invented a new subset of trivia with a consistent question he likes to ask on his late night talk show: amazing 'SNL' sketches that never aired, no matter how much their creators loved them. Meyers has made it a (totally awesome) habit to ask other 'SNL' alums who hit his show what sketches they're most bummed about never making it on the air, and the results are so far incredible.

Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey are pretty tight these days -- their starring roles in Christopher Nolan's upcoming 'Interstellar' certainly helped seal that up -- which means they're not afraid to get kind of goofy around each other. Hathaway especially.

EDIT

Jim Carrey has plenty of trademark characters to trot out -- Ace Ventura, the Cable Guy, Fire Marshall Bill, the Riddler (wait, scratch that one) -- but the funny man seems to be quite recently endeared to a new, highly specific one: fellow actor Matthew McConaughey in his Lincoln commercials. Carrey debuted his take on the admittedly overly dreamy commercials during last week's 'Saturday Night Live,' but he's not done with it just yet.

Dear all other hosts of late night: if you were hoping to somehow sang the 'Game of Thrones' demographic by bringing stars of the hit HBO series on to your stage for a friendly chat, you're going to have to do much, much more than that now. Seth Meyers has bested you in a big way.

Daniel Radcliffe's name may be forever synonymous with 'Harry Potter,' but the British actor has already proven that his talents extend far beyond playing the boy wizard on the big screen. He can do the Broadway thing! He's got a nifty fake American accent! He can rap! Wait...what?

Starting off in Hollywood is rarely a glamorous endeavor -- rather, it's one the requires hard work, patience, and a handful of really bad side gigs meant to supplement a budding star's cash flow until they hit the big time.
