Jimmy Fallon has one question for Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and Ice Cube: 'Sup'? -- VIDEO

FALLON-SUP-22-JUMP-ST.jpg

22 Jump Street stars Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and Ice Cube surely had plenty to say about their new film when they stopped by The Tonight Show on Friday. But host Jimmy Fallon had just one question for the stars: “Sup?”

It’s a simple question that the pals made unnecessarily complicated, answering the greeting in the most ridiculous ways possible. Sup-sounding replies included: soap, lentil soup, sippy cup and… Patrick Duffy?

Tatum and Hill bro out in the new comedy, going undercover as college kids, so we get the joke. But the bit comes this-close to bringing on flashbacks of those “Wassup!” Budweiser commercials, a piece of nostalgia no one needed.

Jonah Hill apologizes for gay slur again on 'Tonight'

Jonah Hill recently called a papparazzo a “f—–” in a video captured by TMZ and, after extensively apologizing for using the slur in a radio interview with Howard Stern, he addressed the situation again on Tuesday night’s Tonight Show.

'Saturday Night Live' best host poll: And the winner is...

SNL-HOST-AWARD-2014.jpg

Saturday Night Live turns 40 years old next year. The big 4-0. What does that mean, exactly? Well, to put it in perspective, that means 11 of the 21 people who hosted during SNL‘s 39th season were not even alive when the show premiered on Oct. 11, 1975 with George Carlin as host. The show has evolved slightly from one cast to the next. But at its core, it’s still the same format that Lorne Michaels and his irreverent crew established way back when, though the first few seasons relied on such a small circle of guest hosts that Buck Henry became the inaugural member of the Five-Timers Club before the end of season 3.

It would be interesting to go back to the very beginning and award a Mr. Saturday Night to the best host for every season of SNL. Elliott Gould might take the prize in season 1 for performing double duty, and perhaps Steve Martin wins in season 2 for the same feat. But who deserves the honor for season 3: Martin again, for hosting a record three times, or a tongue-in-cheek nod to Chevy Chase, who brawled with Bill Murray on his first time back after leaving the show?

At least we know who have been the best hosts of the last three years. In 2012, EW.com readers crowned the first Mr. Saturday Night, Jimmy Fallon. Last year, Justin Timberlake ran away with the trophy. This year, the two title-holders teamed up for one super-size Christmas spectacular with Fallon as host and Timberlake as musical guest. But still, Fallon has hardly been a cinch, rising and dropping in the weekly polls that eliminated one host at a time until we were left with six finalists. His former Weekend Update co-anchor Tina Fey is back in the game, and Catching Fire‘s Josh Hutcherson is the surprise dark-horse who remains in striking distance. Might he surprise everyone and accomplish what even Jennifer Lawrence could not last year — win Mr. Saturday Night?

Before we announce the victor of this year’s contest, though, there are six other non-democratic awards to present. READ FULL STORY

Will Ferrell rocks out with Red Hot Chili Peppers on 'Tonight Show' -- VIDEO

Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Pepper Chad Smith could have been separated at birth: They’re both A+ drummers, and they look identical. Brother, Brother?

Charlize Theron and Josh Hartnett face off in charades on 'Tonight Show' -- VIDEO

Charlize Theron can do just about anything — except sing. Or win a game of charades.

The Million Ways to Die in the West star went on The Tonight Show Tuesday evening, where she teamed up with announcer Steve Higgins to play a game of charades against Jimmy Fallon and Penny Dreadful star Josh Hartnett. Meaning we got to see Theron act out all the ways one can commit murder when she picked Murder She Wrote as her clue. And we thought Monster was the end of her killing career!

Jimmy Fallon and Terry Crews lip sync...with their chests -- VIDEO

You know when something is so creepy you just can’t bring yourself to look away?

Welcome to Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show — or, at least, his new “Nip Syncing” bit, which debuted Monday night. Fallon and guest Terry Crews lip synched the Stevie Wonder/Paul McCartney classic “Ebony and Ivory” — only it wasn’t their lips that were moving. The duo’s oiled-up chests moved with the music while promoting love and understanding. (For what it’s worth, that’s Crews’ actual torso; Fallon’s head has been digitally superimposed onto a pec double.)

Oddly, this is not the weirdest thing to happen this week involving something that peaked in the ’80s. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

'Saturday Night Live' poll: Who was the best host of the year? -- VOTE

SNL-HOST-AWARD-2014.jpg

Early during this season of Saturday Night Live, Alec Baldwin interrupted first-time host Edward Norton to share some pointers on how to host the legendary show, a late-night institution in its 39th season. “It’s a three-wheeled bus careening towards a blown-out bridge,” he said, describing the delirious mayhem that can either terrify or thrill a novice. It’s not easy in the slightest, and honor to those who make it look so.

For the third straight year, Entertainment Weekly has asked its online readers to vote for the best Saturday Night Live host each week. And every week, we eliminated one guest host, until we were left with six of the season’s finest. Last year’s Mr. Saturday Night Justin Timberlake didn’t return this past season to defend his crown. Instead, he lent his unofficial support to BFF and fellow Mr. Saturday Night Jimmy Fallon as his musical guest and all-around secret weapon. (He even sent Fallon’s rival, his old digital-short pal Andy Samberg, a very public show of non-support.) But this final vote promises to be extremely close, with only six percentage points separating the last week’s top-3 vote-getters: Fallon, Josh Hutcherson, and Anna Kendrick. To that mix, add Samberg, who is going to be fresh in everyone’s minds, and Tina Fey, an all-timer who was granted a second chance. Hoping to make up ground is first-timer Andrew Garfield. While Timberlake won last year with nearly 50 percent of the vote, it’s entirely possible that this year’s winner takes the prize with under 30 percent. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon is winning his bet with the Montreal Canadiens... so far

If the New York Rangers keep playing like they did on Saturday afternoon, Jimmy Fallon is going to be the winner of one high-profile bet.

Once the Montreal Canadiens found out they were set to play the Broadway Blueshirts in the NHL’s Eastern Conference Final, Les Habitants challenged the Tonight Show host to a friendly wager:

Fallon countered, and both sides virtually shook on the bet: READ FULL STORY

Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon flip lips, butcher classic 'Grease' song -- VIDEO

BARRYMORE-FALLON-LIP-SWAP.jpg

Drew Barrymore’s doing the interview rounds for her new film, Blended, co-starring Adam Sandler. When she stopped by The Tonight Show on Friday, she made a confession to pal Jimmy Fallon — she kind of wished that just one time, she could interview herself.

It was the setup for the host’s silly “Lip Flip” game. Courtesy of a cheap camera trick, Fallon’s mouth was placed on Barrymore’s face, and vice-versa. Barrymore impersonated Fallon by talking about his love of everything New York (“Pizza, pizza, pizza, sometimes I just say ‘za”) and otherwise making a bunch of goofy sounds. As Barrymore, Fallon played up the actress’ free-spirited side, declaring: “You know what I’m really into right now? Licking tree frogs.”

The ridiculous bit concluded with a terrible rendition of the Grease song “You’re the One That I Want,” which, of course, cracked up both “singers.” Take a look: READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Lawrence plays Box of Lies with Jimmy Fallon -- VIDEO

Thursday night, Jimmy Fallon did what many of us aspire to do one day: Play a silly game with Jennifer Lawrence.

The X-Men star went on The Tonight Show for a round of Box of Lies, a game first played by Fallon and Tina Fey last year. Here’s how it works: Lawrence and Fallon sit across from each other with a divider between them. There’s a hole carved out so they can see each other’s faces. One person chooses a box, which contains a mystery item, and tells the other either what she’s holding or a lie. It’s up to the opponent to guess whether the speaker is lying. For example: Fallon told Lawrence he had a Backstreet Boys doll when really he had an Uncle Jesse doll. Then he made out with the box, which is obviously what you do when you have an Uncle Jesse doll in your possession.
