'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon loves a lot of things, but there are few he loves as much as inventing weird new games by putting an unexpected twist on them. Card games? Involve water. Three-legged race? Get a giant shoe. Ping-pong? Knit up a double turtleneck and shove the guest in alongside Fallon. Yup, there's a new 'Tonight Show' game, and it involves knit wear.
Let it never be said that Jon Hamm doesn't like to have a good time. The 'Mad Men' star might be known for his hard-nosed role on the uber-dramatic AMC series, but he likes to stir up mirth in his off-time, from 'SNL' hosting and pop-in appearances to helping 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon with some gags for his show. In keeping with the latter, Fallon and Hamm took to the Top of the Rock (on top of NBC's 30 Rock in NYC) over the weekend to photobomb innocent city gazers.
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.
On last night's Fat Tuesday show, Jimmy Fallon used his 'Tonight Show' segment 'Pros and Cons' to break down the high highs and the low lows of attending Mardi Gras. First order of business? Figuring out how to pronounce 'New Orleans' ('Nawlins'?). That hump overcome, Fallon and announcer Steve Higgins weigh what makes Mardi Gras great (hint: lots of booze) and not so great (yes, there is a John Travolta/Adele Dassim joke in there).
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.
