It starts out sweetly enough -- with a selfie taken in what looks like a foxhole decked out with a wading pool -- before everything turns quite literally icy. To welcome Lindsay Lohan to what was actually her second visit to the new 'Tonight Show' (remember she showed up on that first night, along with the rest of Hollywood?), Jimmy Fallon engaged the starlet in a game of Water War.
"This one's for the children!"
There's something oddly soothing about watching Jimmy Fallon play flip cup with big stars on his 'Tonight Show.' The college drinking game suddenly seems classy, refined, even a little zen, especially when someone like 'The Face of Love' star Annette Bening shows up to chug beer and flip Solo cups alongside the host.
Broadway star Idina Menzel's Oscar night performance of what would become the Best Song winner, "Let It Go" from Disney's smash hit 'Frozen,' might have been just a touch overshadowed by John Travolta's now-classic mangling of the songstress' name, but Jimmy Fallon gave her another chance to shine on 'The Tonight Show' Monday night.
There's little question that Jimmy Fallon loves rapping, fake music videos, invented sporting events, and asking his 'Tonight Show' guests to help him combine all of the above into its own unique blast of '80s-tinged goodness and oddly catchy lyrics (if you count a single line as "lyrics"). That doesn't seem to be abating in his second week as host on the venerable late show, as basket-baller LeBron James popped up for a game of Wastepaper Basketball.
Unsurprisingly, Jimmy Fallon brought along his famous "Lip Sync Battles" when he moved over to host 'The Tonight Show' as Jay Leno's successor. To kick things off with his first installment in his new late-night hour, Fallon challenged 'Anchorman 2' and future 'Ant-Man' star Paul Rudd, and you can watch their battle right here.
Just as Jimmy Fallon finally stepped up to 'The Tonight Show' last week with a star-studded parade of gags, fellow 'SNL' vet Seth Meyers finally made his own way up the ranks with last night's premiere of 'Late Night with Seth Meyers.' The new debut brought not only a spot-on parody of Fallon's "Thank You" sketch, but also some extended animosity between Meyers' first guest Amy Poehler and 8G band leader Fred Armisen.
Just a few weeks' time will see the late night landscape dramatically shift, as 'Late Night' host Jimmy Fallon finally takes the 'Tonight Show' throne from Jay Leno, and 'SNL' veteran Seth Meyers joins 'Late Night' in his wake. Fallon has tapped cinema icon Will Smith and Irish rockers U2 for his inaugural 'Tonight Show' gig, but who will join Seth Meyers on the couch?
A few weeks from now, the late-night TV landscape will look drastically different, what with current 'Late Night' host Jimmy Fallon taking over 'The Tonight Show' from Jay Leno, while 'SNL''s resident Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers graduates to 'Late Night' in turn. The first promos for these takeovers have emerged, but will everything be ready in time for opening night?
Since 2003, the "Barry Gibb Talk Show" sketches on 'SNL' have popped up whenever Justin Timberlake or Jimmy Fallon have appeared on the show, with Fallon playing Bee Gees lead singer Bary Gibb and Timberlake taking on his brother, Robin Gibb. The last time we saw these characters was in 2011 and its return seemed unlikely following the death of Robin Gibb in 2012. However, the sketch made its big return last night and it brought a handful of surprise cameos along for the ride.
