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.

Lance Bass pretends to be a singing fish on 'Tonight Show' -- VIDEO

Just what we’ve always wanted: Lance Bass as a Big Mouth Billy Bass.

Jimmy Fallon opened his suggestion box Wednesday night only to find an entirely reasonable request: that someone pretend to be Big Mouth Billy Bass live on The Tonight Show. The right man for the job was, of course, former ‘N Sync-er Lance Bass. Hopefully this means Bass Pro Shops will be stocking their shelves with Big Mouth Lance Basses ASAP.

Stewart, Kimmel, Fallon talk Solange/Jay Z elevator fight -- VIDEO

TMZ released video footage of Solange Knowles attacking brother-in-law Jay Z in an elevator as Beyonce stood by — and naturally, the media was on it.

The video came out Monday, and since then, cable talking heads have been tirelessly trying to figure out what caused the incident — because, apparently, there’s nothing better to talk about. Jon Stewart mocked all the coverage of the elevator affair on The Daily Show Wednesday night, showing clips from outlets like CNN and Fox News and poking fun at their baseless theories — including that Jay Z has been cheating on Beyoncé, and the mogul wanted to ditch his wife and her sis to go to Rihanna’s party after the Met Gala. “With all these incredibly well-sourced motives, I can’t believe Solange didn’t spend the entire Met Ball kicking Jay Z in the face,” Stewart said. “Why wait until the elevator?”

'Saturday Night Live' host poll: Did Charlize Theron's show sing? -- VOTE

Charlize Theron can’t sing — but that really is about the only thing she can’t do better than you. She’s beautiful, of course, has an Oscar, and has proven on Between Two Ferns and Arrested Development to be extremely funny as well. Her return to Saturday Night Live for the first time since 2000 — she was promoting The Legend of Bagger Vance then — is pegged to A Million Ways to Die in the West, her comic western with Seth MacFarlane; Hmmm, so maybe the only thing she can’t do well is believably watch Will Smith caddy for Matt Damon.

Saturday was a mixture of high and lows, as most SNLs are. Still, Theron had some fine moments that should make for an interesting vote in this week’s Mr. Saturday Night poll. With only one week to go in the season, our contest is truly wide open. Andrew Garfield made a splash last week and holds a commanding lead in the voting with 39.5 percent. That’s a solid but not spectacular debut showing, and it will be interesting to see if the Spider-Man star can hold those numbers. Jimmy Fallon was rock steady again with 22.3 percent, and he might be poised to move up again if anyone falters. Anna Kendrick had been in first place but her support was slashed in half, from 33.9 to 16.9 percent. Ditto for Josh Hutcherson, whose week-to-week numbers have been like a yo-yo; he sank to fourth place with 15.7 percent. Louis C.K. was eliminated with only 5.6 percent. READ FULL STORY

Things get a little awkward when Amy Schumer plays 'Truth or Truth' with Jimmy Fallon -- VIDEO

It seems Amy Schumer forgot which late-night show she was visiting on Friday.

While a guest on The Tonight Show, the Inside Amy Schumer star was challenged to a game of “Truth or Truth” by host Jimmy Fallon. Unsurprisingly, things got a little risque.

When asked what she thought of teeth — because all “Truth or Truth” questions are required to be ridiculous — Schumer replied, “I’ve been told to use less.” Fallon reprimanded his guest while giggling at her answer. “We’re on at an earlier time slot now, Amy!” he said.

The game also revealed some other interesting tidbits, like Fallon’s first words and what Schumer wants on her tombstone.

Bryan Cranston is the one who badonkadonks on 'Tonight' -- VIDEO

Bryan Cranston doesn’t know what a badonkadonk is.

The Breaking Bad star, who’s currently playing President Lyndon Johnson in Broadway play “All the Way,” went on The Tonight Show Monday and played a game of “Word Sneak” with Jimmy Fallon. Each one was challenged to sneak five words into conversation — including “badonkadonk,” a term that Cranston butchered before turning to the audience and mouthing, “I don’t know what that is!”

'Saturday Night Live' host poll: Was Andrew Garfield an 'SNL' superhero?

Andrew Garfield had a pretty great weekend. His Spider-Man sequel grossed more than $92 million and he delivered a promising debut as host of Saturday Night Live. Credit the writers or his celebrity helpers — who included girlfriend Emma Stone, Jack Bauer, and Chris Martin — if you must, but Garfield more than held his own. He was bold, imitating his Social Network adversary and SNL all-star Justin Timberlake during a “Celebrity Family Feud” sketch; he was a brilliant man-on-the-run in a fake trailer for The Beygency; and he even had some fun anti-kissing his real-life girlfriend in a Spider-Man sketch. Combine that with some very funny Weekend Update bits — bravo Leslie Jones! — a great twist on Oliver, and a decent cold open about disgraced basketball owner Donald Sterling, and you get what I thought was one of the finest episodes SNL has had all season.

But in our third annual Mr. Saturday Night contest, my vote counts as much as yours — and the competition is tight. The most recent host before Garfield, Seth Rogen, landed with a thud, garnering only 3 percent of the vote and a quick elimination. Anna Kendrick retained her lead, but just barely, with 33.9 percent. Apparently, Josh Hutcherson‘s fans came back from spring break to vote, as his support more than tripled, from 10 percent to 33.8 percent. Jimmy Fallon held steady with 22 percent, but he’s not necessarily the one to beat anymore, despite his status as a former champion. Louis C.K. finished fourth again, with only 7.3 percent, and he’ll be tested to hold off Garfield this week. READ FULL STORY

Kevin Spacey joins Jimmy Fallon's barbershop group to sing 'Talk Dirty' -- VIDEO

Whether it’s with classroom instruments or by impersonating Tom Petty, you never quite know how Jimmy Fallon is going to cover a hit song on The Tonight Show. Somehow, the late-night host still manages to surprise — and his interpretation of Jason Derulo’s stomper “Talk Dirty” is no exception.

For Derulo’s hit, Fallon brought back his barbershop group, The Ragtime Gals, on Friday. There are primary color-striped blazers, bow ties, jaunty hats, and…Kevin Spacey.

“I’ve been around the world, don’t speak the language/But your booty don’t need explaining” never sounded so delightful. Take a look: READ FULL STORY

Andrew Garfield plays 'Spider-Man' theme song on 'Tonight Show' -- VIDEO

Andrew Garfield may be no Adele Dazeem (his joke, not ours), but he does have some hidden musical talents. Watch out, Emma Stone!

Garfield went on The Tonight Show Thursday and, after discussing his recent ventures into learning to play guitar, he launched into a performance of the theme song from the 1967 animated Spider-Man TV show. It was, in a word, amazing. (Hey, just like Spider-Man!)

Cameron Diaz helps Jimmy Fallon photobomb tourists -- VIDEO

Yet another perk of being friends with Cameron Diaz? You’re going to get some pretty great silly photos.

On the Tonight Show Wednesday, Jimmy Fallon brought back his bit about photobombing tourists on top of Rockefeller Center (where Tonight tapes). Helping him out this time? Diaz, who proved that she had no hang ups about funny faces, Charlie’s Angels poses, or sharing a sandwich with Fallon.

Watch the bit below, and ponder if you’d be as bold as the woman in the final shot — who goes straight for a Fallon hug once the duo reveal themselves: READ FULL STORY
