Wait, is Kevin Spacey actually Johnny Carson now? Did no one tell me? When did this happen? Should we be afraid? Is he going to take over a late night show now.

Now give this a chance. It might sound boring – Adam Sandler talks about food with Conan O’Brien – but the former Saturday Night Live stars (Sandler was, of course, a cast member, while O’Brien as a long-time writer) have some pretty tall tales to share about their time on the show, specifically as it applies to meals.
If you’re in need of about five minutes of Chappie star Hugh Jackman and Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon discussing, joking about, and sporting mullets, have we got a clip for you. Jackman stopped by the show last night to talk Chappie – all robots and future and stuff – but Fallon quickly fixated on his favorite element of the entire film: Jackman’s mullet. Turns out, Jackman went full mullet for the role, and it’s actually not the first time he’s grown out his own party in back/business in front coif.
Should we be worried about Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon? The late night chatterbox has spent the last year of his life winning all sorts of wacky, mostly oversized games on his show, but lately, things have been going pretty downhill. In short, he’s lost, a lot, and no one seems more confused about it than Fallon himself.
The late night talk show scene is lousy with fake gags, including plenty of sketches that center on fake television shows. This is fine! It’s fun even! But it’s not often that a fake late night show is so good, so strange, and so funny that we wish it were real. If only Plizzanet Earth was real.
Terrence Howard acted weird at the Oscars. Tasked with announcing some of the Best Picture nominees, he flubbed almost every line, wacked his microphone, and then appeared to be overcome by emotion. This was all Oprah’s fault.
If there’s one thing Last Week Tonight With John Oliver viewers learned from last night’s show, it’s that infrastructure is not sexy. It became a bit of a mantra for the show: infrastructure is not sexy. But! What if it could be? And what’s sexier than a big screen summer blockbuster?
Last May, Seth Meyers unveiled a new recurring sketch on his Late Night: Second Chance Theatre, which allowed some of the host’s former Saturday Night Live brethren to share sketches that they never got to make on that show. Will Forte was his first star, and his never-aired sketch was a wonderful mix of the funny and the strange, an instant classic that probably should have been on SNL.
That wily Margot Robbie. She may have acted as if she didn’t understand the ways and rules of Flip Cup before diving into a round with Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, but that was probably all a ruse – perhaps some weird viral marketing for her new con artist film Focus – because Margot Robbie is very good at Flip Cup.
If you are so far unfamiliar with the Will Smith-starring Focus (which opens tomorrow), but you have been keeping up with Smith’s late night appearances, you might be shocked to find that Focus is not about the rapper/actor reigniting his music career. After all, Smith has already resurrected “Getting Jiggy Wit It” for a recent Late Show appearance. Next up? “Summertime.” Just go on tour, Will Smith.
