Adam Sandler Recalls How Much Chris Farley Used to Eat at SNL
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.
Hugh Jackman’s Mullet in ‘Chappie’ Is Not the First Time He’s Had a Mullet
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.
Jimmy Fallon’s Losing Streak Continues as Zoe Kravitz Beats Him at Beer Pong
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.
We Wish Snopp Dogg’s Fake Nature Show ‘Plizzanet Earth’ Was a Real Thing
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.
Ice T Has a Lot of Opinions About ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’
“Fifty Shades of Grey? That’s nothing!” It’s fair to assume that the last thing most people – even most late night hosts – would ask Ice T should they have him locked in a conversation is how he feels about Fifty Shades of Grey. Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon is not most people, and when Ice T (Ice? Mr. T?) appeared on his show last night, Fallon asked him about America’s current cultural obsession. Ice T had some opinions! They’re kind of great!
Will Forte Played an Amazing Prank on Kenan Thompson
Pranks! Wacky, silly, fun pranks! Destructive, horrible, embarrassing pranks. On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, former Saturday Night Live star Will Forte reminisced about a prank he once played on co-star Kenan Thompson, a generally benign (but charmingly so) prank that saw him and Kristen Schaal playing around in Thompson’s dressing room when he wasn’t present and then sending him pictures of the mayhem. This is a classic prank. What could possibly go wrong?
Watch Will Smith Perfectly Rap ‘Gettin Jiggy Wit It’ in Surprise Performance
Alert, alert: Will Smith still has it. The star of the upcoming con man romantic comedy drama (co-ma rom-com-dram?) Focus hit The Late Show last night to chat it up with host David Letterman and, oh, yeah, to just randomly rap “Gettin Jiggy Wit It” alongside Letterman’s own band. Sure, most late night guests just walk out on stage, give a big hello, and sit down, but not Smith, who seemed determined to remind everyone of his rap roots.
John Oliver Has His Own Ideas on Who Should Host ‘The Daily Show’
Why doesn’t everyone ask John Oliver for advice on everything? The Last Week Tonight host consistently thinks of the best possible answer for every possible question, so why not just turn him into the world’s all-knowing sage or something? The guy isn’t that busy, right?
SNL 40: Jimmy Fallon Recaps the After Party, With Lots of Name-Dropping
The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon might be prone to brief spats of name-dropping – hey, the guy knows a lot of people! – but on last night’s show, it was at least somewhat appropriate. Still recovering from Sunday night’s SNL 40 super special, Fallon was eager to share his recollections of the evening with his studio audience (and also Questlove, who was actually there, but who charitably recounted the whole evening with the giddy Fallon). There were a lot of people there!
Hugh Grant Cheats at ‘Tonight Show’ Hallway Golf in Front of a Live Television Audience
Stay with this one. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' Hugh Grant appeared to chat about various things -- including his new Valentine's Day-timed rom-com release, 'The Rewrite' -- before joining in on a spirited game of Hallway Golf with host Jimmy Fallon and special guest Charles Barkley. Despite a slow start -- it appears that no one really understands the rules or even cares about them -- this game eventually does pick up.
‘Fifty Shades’ Star Dakota Johnson Tries to Make Fanny Packs Sound Sexy With Jimmy Fallon
The upcoming 'Fifty Shades of Grey' feature might not be everyone's cup of sexy tea, but leading lady Dakota Johnson would like to at least attempt to change the minds of potential viewers who don't think that anything—yes, anything—can be sexy with the right attitude. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' Johnson was tasked with reading off a series of decidedly unsexy lines, including stuff about Chapstick (?) and sweatpants (?) in an attempt to make them alluring.
About That One Time Chris Pratt’s Baby Was Shushed By Mickey Rourke
If there's one thing that no one talks about enough, it's that Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are not only married, but that the very funny duo actually have a pint-sized baby boy together. How funny is that kid going to be? Despite baby boy Pratt's charmed life, he's already had to endure the indignity of one thing: air travel. More specifically: international air travel with an apparently irritable Mickey Rourke.
Watch a Tearful Jon Stewart Announce His ‘Daily Show’ Retirement to a Stunned Live Audience
It's the moment we all knew would happen eventually -- and, based on the immediacy of the news cycle and when late night shows are actually filmed, it's the moment most of us also knew was happening yesterday -- but 'Daily Show' host Jon Stewart has finally announced his retirement after seventeen years at the news desk. Stewart's show films in the late evenings in New York City, so the news that he had announced his imminent retirement during a taping last night hit the wire many hours before the show actually aired.
Watch ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Star Jamie Dornan Read From the Book, With a Twist
As part of a segment he likes to call “Fifty Accents,” host Jimmy Fallon set Dornan up with a “randomly chosen” (sure) accent and a passage from the E.L. James book that became a “global phenomenon.” It's both raunchy and weird, but at least it shows off a little bit of Dornan's range in a way that's (mostly) PG.
Will Smith and Jimmy Fallon Rapped “It Takes Two” Together on ‘The Tonight Show’
Thank goodness for iPad apps. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' host Jimmy Fallon -- who grows more California by the minute, as the show has temporarily relocated to the West Coast -- and guest Will Smith decided to finally give the people what they want: rapping. Well, sort of.
Jeff Bridges Finally Explains His Weird Super Bowl Commercial
Jeff Bridges really, really, really wants to help you sleep. The 'Seventh Son' star recently popped up during the Super Bowl, touting, well, something during a somewhat strange and somewhat soothing commercial spot. Turns out, Bridges is actually selling what it looks like he's selling: sleep. Wait, what?
Jimmy Fallon Recreated ‘Saved By the Bell’ With the Entire Cast
Well, almost the entire cast. 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon is really get into Los Angeles living during this week's sojourn to the land of sun and fun, and no ode to California would be complete without a loving nod to the ultimate Cali show: 'Saved By the Bell.'
‘The Tonight Show’ Hosted a Star-Studded Round of ‘Password’
Sigh. 'The Tonight Show' temporarily moves to Los Angeles -- Hollywood, Tinsel Town, The Big Grapefruit, only one of those is a real nickname -- and is suddenly just flooded with random star power. Zzzzz.
Watch Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, and More Read Mean Tweets
Celebrities have feelings, too. Even when you think you're just talking random smack about them in the wide world of the internet (web?), you're still talking random smack about real people. If you're tweeting mean stuff? They might see it. And it might hurt them.
Watch Jimmy Fallon Recreate ‘The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air’ Opening Sequence
For the next week, 'The Tonight Show' is chilling in sunny Los Angeles -- the frigid cold of New York City, quite understandably, finally got to the crew, and also this has been planned for months -- and host Jimmy Fallon has spared no creative expense when it comes to making his temporarily Hollywood-based show look California cool. And we all know there's only one way to really drive home CA styling: 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.'
