Adam Levine does a pretty great Eddie Vedder impression on 'Fallon'

Who knew Adam Levine had such range?

Tuesday night on The Tonight Show, Levine showed off some pretty impressive impressions when Jimmy Fallon challenged the Maroon 5 crooner to a game of musical impressions, except it isn’t a Jimmy-Fallon-celebrity-game without a cutesy twist. In the styles of specific artists like Michael Jackson and Iggy Azalea, they riffed on kiddie tunes like the Sesame Street theme song and “Old McDonald.” Thus, Levine had to ditch the Maroon 5 wailing and sing a grizzled version of “The Muffin Man” in the style of Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder.

For once, it seems Fallon has been bested in the impressions department—though to be fair, Iggy Azalea’s accent does seem to be of an indeterminate origin.

Fallon plays 'Goldeneye' with Pierce Brosnan, becomes a Bond villain

When Pierce Brosnan first took on the iconic role of James Bond in 1995’s Goldeneye, he very likely had no idea he was becoming a part of video game history. But Goldeneye 007, the 1997 video game adaptation of the film, was a huge success, and a whole generation of video game fans grew up with Brosnan’s face plugged into their Nintendo 64.

So when the actor came by The Tonight Show last night, host Jimmy Fallon, a huge video game fan, challenged him to a match.

Brosnan isn’t very good, but Fallon doesn’t really care—he’s too busy cackling with glee in exuberant Bond villainy. Fallon’s enthusiasm rubs off, and it looks like Brosnan is having a jolly time. They really should have changed the game mode, though: The Man With Golden Gun is the way to go for sudden death Goldeneye matches. And you can’t forget Big Head mode. That’s important.

Taylor Swift gets nerdy in Jimmy Fallon's 'Ew!' sketch

Taylor Swift? Ew.

Swift is the latest star to guest on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show sketch “Ew!,” a mock Teen Nick show that features Fallon dressed as a teenage girl who says “Ew!” in response to almost everything. In the sketch, which aired Wednesday, Swift plays a nerdy 13-year-old named Natalie who likes “to eat apricots” and has “a Band-Aid collection.”

Jimmy Fallon gets power played by a former 'Tonight' host in 'House of Cards' parody

Like political offices on House of Cards, TV hosting gigs aren’t assigned through democracy. So it’s almost no surprise that when Jimmy Fallon did a parody of the popular Netflix drama on The Tonight Show Tuesday, his hosting chair was quickly nabbed by a former Tonight star.

Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers pay tribute to Robin Williams

Tuesday’s episode of The Tonight Show started not with a “hello,” but with a “nanu nanu” from The Roots’ Questlove. The drummer was paying tribute to Robin Williams, who died Monday at 63: “Nanu nanu” was how Mork said goodbye to his fellow aliens in ’70s sitcom Mork and Mindy, the show that gave Williams his start.

See The Rock join Jimmy Fallon for an old-school workout

When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stopped by The Tonight Show to promote his new film Hercules, Jimmy Fallon asked about Johnson’s workout routine. From there, Johnson and Fallon put on some killer wigs, reenacted classic workout VHS tapes, and even perfected the art of the “squat thrust” as The Fungo Brothers.

As the Fungo Brothers always say, “You gotta hustle for the muscle!” READ FULL STORY

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
