‘Tonight Show’ host Jimmy Fallon loves a good recurring sketch or game, but one of his very best repeating gags is one we don’t get to see often enough. When given the right musical guest—typically, someone funny and plucky and more than willing to go a bit crazy—Fallon and his house band The Roots will break out the classroom instruments and everyone will just go to town on a particular jam.

Jimmy Fallon has beaten plenty of superstars on his ‘Tonight Show’ when it comes time to break out the drinking games—maybe these things are fixed! maybe Fallon is just really good at games!—but few talents have turned in such an all-around dismal performance as Chris Pine did last night. The ‘Into the Woods’ star could not catch a break when it came to Battleshots, a wicked little hybrid of Battleship and, well, shots of tequila, and Fallon nearly broke the poor man.
Amy Adams is adorably bad at flip cup. The ‘Big Eyes’ star—and hey, this week's ‘Saturday Night Live’ host!—hit up ‘The Tonight Show’ last night to play an extremely festive round of flip cup with host Jimmy Fallon. Although the cheery spirit was strong in this particular round of holiday-decked flip cup, that didn’t do much to help Adams’ overall performance.
Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake are pals. Like, serious pals. These guys make Apple commercials together, which is a true mark of friendship if there ever was one. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' the duo decided to team up for another round of, well, just whatever the heck it is these two do together.
No, you have not gone crazy--Oprah Winfrey and Jimmy Fallon never starred in a soap opera, certainly not one together--but let's not let that small factoid get in the way of a good (if wholly imaginary and also extremely weird) sketch.
'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon has so far conducted fake mountain top-set "intense staredowns" with such genuinely intense dudes as Jared Leto and Robert Downey, Jr., both of which ended up being mostly amusing, only slightly weird outings. For his latest eyeball-popper, however, Fallon finally went full weird, with Dwayne Johnson assisting as his staring partner.
Has Steve Carell entered the “Hey, just do whatever you want!” part of his career? Probably, and good for him! And good for us, because that means we get lots of special, weird things to watch, like this clip of Steve Carell and a barbershop quartet crooning Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” to an extremely confused studio audience.
Comedian/actor/writer/director Chris Rock has already proven that he can do just about everything -- and do it pretty well, if his upcoming feature 'Top Five' is any indication -- but the funny man almost had another major career move bulleted on his resume. Before Rock made it big as an actor, he dabbled in the disc jockey arts, deeming his own skills to be "nice!" After the DJing came a deal for a rap record, which was made, but never released, a weird bit of trivia that Rock shared with Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show' last night.
Former 'SNL' star and enduring comedy legend Martin Short has many stellar characters under his belt, but his Jiminy Click--who perhaps broke said belt many years ago--is one of his best. The dim bulb Hollywood entertainment reporter spectacularly biffs each and every one of his interviews, while still somehow managing to seem as if he is the one in the right. It's a true talent (which, considering how bad Jiminy is at his actual job, is something the fake character should cling to).
"Are you-- are you the Hulk?" Prepare yourself for, quite possibly, the most adorable and charming story about mistaken superhero identity ever. Sure, Mark Ruffalo plays the Hulk as part of 'The Avengers,' but we all know that he's not actually the Hulk...right? Well, if you happen to be a pre-schooler, that line might be a little (understandably) blurred. This is a bit of an issue when non-Hulk Ruffalo participates in normal activities -- including being the parent of a pre-schooler.
