If you've ever wondered what it would be like if Jimmy Fallon was a high school principal -- and that is, admittedly, a weird fantasy, but one the funny guy has apparently thought about a lot -- the 'Tonight Show' host provided an answer on last night's show. What would it be like if Jimmy Fallon was a high school principal? Well, it would certainly be musical.
This is the natural progression of 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon's assorted warblings and big-time musical impressions: a full-scale musical medley co-starring Barbra Streisand. The songstress has a new album out -- her 34th! -- that's titled 'Partners' and features just a mess of duets between Babs and a bunch of male partners. Get it? Partners?
Former 'SNL' head writer Seth Meyers has made it his business to bring some of those sketches cut from 'SNL' to his own 'Late Night' show, and the results have so far been uproarious. While Will Forte's cut bit got the full sketch treatment a few months ago, Bill Hader didn't need those same bells and whistles. After all, his snipped sketch just involved him putting on a weirdly nuanced impression of '60 Minutes' anchor Bob Simon.
The rules are simple (in fact, they're pretty much contained within the game's actual name) when it comes to Billy Eichner's 'Celebrity Child or Kentucky Derby Winner?' The 'Billy on the Street' host will name a particular name, and then you need to guess if it belongs to the child of a celebrity or a race-winning pony. Along the way, the loud-mouthed host will use his trademark screaming ability to drive things right along, and if you can get through the tricky trivia and the ear-splitting growl, you can win a dollar for each correct answer.
Dear Hugh Jackman, you know that 'The Tonight Show' is on television, right? More specifically, it's on live television in front of a studio audience, which means hundreds of people are watching the show in person, with millions more watching at home. In short, it's a very bad place to decide to cheat at a game, particularly if that game involves standing on an oversized pool table in front of said audience.
You know what's scary? That 'Jurassic Park' never got a theme song with catchy, snappy, and applicable lyrics. You know what's even scarier? The possibility that such a song does indeed exist, and that Jeff Goldlbum wants you to hear it. No, really. He's here to sing it for you, too. Get in on this, fans of dinosaurs run amok, because this is a game-changer.
Most people who have a hit show, indie accolades, and scads of awards and nominations before the age of thirty would probably take the time to attend their high school reunion and check in with everyone else they attended school with. Do you have a hit show, guy from English class? You, the girl who was mean to me in P.E., were you nominated for an Emmy? But Lena Dunham isn't like that, and the star and creator of 'Girls' didn't even both to attend her own high school reunion.
Most of the time, Jimmy Fallon confines the 'Tonight Show' games to just one or two participants, enough to keep things clean and easy to follow, with plenty of attention for his various guests. On last night's edition, however, the host decided to pump things up just a bit with an all-star take on 'Family Feud' that crowded the show's stage with a metric ton of Hollywood talent.
Beloved teen angst fest (and starting point for such big time talents as Claire Danes and Jared Leto) 'My So-Called Life' might have been cut short -- like, way short, the series was cancelled after only 19 episodes -- but that hasn't stopped it from enduring as a modern classic that kids still relate to (and, hey, adults do, too). The series turned twenty years old just a few weeks ago, and star Danes didn't let the day go by on unmarked. Well, sort of.
Whoever is in charge of scheduling over at Disney (we imagine it's many people, but just go with it) is going to be in a lot of trouble when they realize that they've put their next 'Star Wars' movie up against 'The Nest,' an adult comedy starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. How do you even compete with that? You don't. Just pack it up now, J.J. Abrams. You're going to lose this box office battle.
