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.
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.
Even if you're not into Adam Levine's own musical stylings, it's hard to deny that the Maroon 5 frontman is a pretty skilled when it comes to imitating other big time musicians -- a talent that 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon exploited to everyone's great pleasure on last night's show.
Josh Brolin knows what's up. The current star of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' makes no bones about where he got his start (and the feature that he might still be best known for): Richard Donner's kids cult classic, 'The Goonies.' Rumors of a 'Goonies' sequel have abounded for years -- the last we heard, it was definitely in the works -- but it doesn't matter when (or if) the film actually happens, because Brolin will turn up for the gig with no questions asked.
If nothing else, Jared Leto's appearance on last night's 'Tonight Show' was probably the most "Jared Leto" the Oscar-winner has been on the late-night circuit. The actor/musician/forever Jordan Catalano took to Jimmy Fallon's show to basically hang out, get his beard trimmed, talk about Zen things, make music, and sit on a fake mountaintop with his host. If only every late-night segment could be this good.
By now, it seems that every celebrity under the sun has taken the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge -- even your favorite Marvel stars -- but there is still a handful of big names who have yet to take the plunge. One obvious choice? Lindsay Lohan, who seems to have so far slipped through the cracks. Well, at least until one random fan challenged her to the task and then employed Jimmy Fallon to make it happen on 'The Tonight Show.' Oh, you're done for now, Lohan.
Pierce Brosnan is back in the spy game, baby! Although the former Bond, James Bond isn't jumping back into 007's shoes (hey, Daniel Craig is pretty good at that, okay?), Brosnan hasn't yet abandoned his action hero status, and he'll next appear in this month's 'The November Man,' where he will play -- shock! -- a spy.
Jimmy Fallon has never been a teenage girl. Taylor Swift, however, has. Still, the veracity that Fallon brings to his performance as a teen in his fake-talk-show-within-a-talk-show, 'Ew!,' is pretty striking -- he somehow seems like more of a teenage girl than his guest, who was a teenage girl mere years ago. It's madness!
A choked-up Jimmy Fallon took to 'The Tonight Show' last night to pay tribute to the recently passed Robin Williams, a highly emotional affair that should help squeeze one last round of tears out of Williams' many shocked and saddened fans.
