Monty Python reunion: Eric Idle on his late friend Robin Williams

While Monty Python member Eric Idle was directing last summer’s reunion shows, he made sure to include a small role in the Michael Palin-fronted “Blackmail” sketch that could be played by a different famous Python fan each night. That roll call of guest talent would ultimately include both Simon Pegg and Mike Myers, who was also the guest performer during the Pythons’ last performance at London’s massive O2 arena. That the Austin Powers star would agree to appear in such a tiny part speaks to the huge and enduring influence of Monty Python’s Flying Circus and the subsequent films created by Idle, Palin, John Cleese, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam, and the late Graham Chapman.

In this round of the classic game, Daniels partnered up with Usher and gained a strong lead thanks to Daniels’ willingness to go all-in on the twerk as Usher guessed various dance moves. It looked like Fallon got a dud of a partner as Jonas failed to recognize seminal gangster movies such as Scarface, Goodfellas, The Usual Suspects, and The Godfather.  READ FULL STORY
