Watch Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon try a yodel duet -- VIDEO

Sometimes, when you just need a break from work, it helps to just go to the top of your building and yodel. At least, that’s what Jimmy Fallon and Brad Pitt do.

In this delightful clip from Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Brad and Jimmy “chat” and then harmonize beautifully.

Bruce Jenner doth protest too much in awkward Jimmy Fallon interview -- VIDEO

Note to Bruce Jenner: Repeatedly insisting what a good sport you are isn’t, in fact, the most effective way to convey that you’re a good sport.

Jenner was Jimmy Fallon’s guest on Late Night yesterday — a move that may surprise anyone familiar with what happened between the two at last year’s Olympic Games. (The short version: Fallon made a few jokes about Jenner’s plastic surgery during an event; later, they ran into each other, and Jenner angrily asked Fallon to “stop saying sh– about my face.”)

The interview got off to a bad start when Jenner cheerily noted that Fallon had never sent him an apology — and things just got more uncomfortable from there. The reality star — and one-time World’s Greatest Athlete –  unconvincingly declared that, as a member of “the Kardashian group,” he’s basically immune to mockery, proclaimed that he’s never been shy about having work done — “I had it done on camera in our show!” — and, in an admittedly funny bit, whipped out a few dorky pictures of Fallon as payback.

Will Smith really wants you to remember that he used to be a rapper -- VIDEO

Remember when Men in Black 3 came out last year, and suddenly Will Smith just would not stop performing his old rap hits everywhere he went? (He kept doing it into the fall!)

Well, now that the Fresh Prince has another movie coming out — M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth — he’s apparently doing the rap thing again. Witness, for example, Smith’s big Late Show entrance last night, which the CBS Orchestra thoughtfully underscored with the strains of “Summertime.” Once he recognized they were playing his song, the movie star couldn’t resist rapping along. And after he noticed that his mic wasn’t capturing his rhymes, Smith also couldn’t resist stealing one of the band’s microphones and starting his verse over from the beginning.

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

SNL-HOST-AWARD-banner.jpg

When it comes to hosting Saturday Night Live, there are degrees of greatness. Sure, there’s the Five-Timers Club, that posh and exclusive club that meets every year in Gstaad to anoint late-night kings, plot ways to blackmail Bill Murray into making Ghostbusters III, and otherwise control the comedy world — except for NBC’s primetime lineup. But you can sneak into the Five-Timers with one great show and four B- performances. No need for names, but it’s possible to get by on reputation and before you know it, you’re exchanging the club’s secret handshake with Lorne Michaels.

To be named Mr. Saturday Night (or Ms. Saturday Night, of course), on the other hand, requires something special. Everything has to go right on a certain night of live television. It’s the equivalent of Wilt Chamberlain scoring 100 points in a basketball game or Don Larsen’s World Series perfect game. On one given night, they were simply unstoppable, and no matter whether they become all-time greats or shooting stars of momentary brilliance, there is nothing quite like watching a performer rise to the occasion.

Last year, EW crowned Jimmy Fallon as the first-ever Mr. Saturday Night, an appropriate recipient not just because Fallon killed it during the show’s Christmas episode, but because of his long history with the late-night institution. This year, the competition to succeed him has been fierce, and during weekly online polls, voters have eliminated 15 hosts, leaving us with six finalists. Finale host Ben Affleck had the easiest path to the final, and his show will be freshest in voters’ minds. But he faces a murderer’s row of entertainers: Martin Short, Justin Timberlake, 2012 runner-up Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Seth MacFarlane, who was rescued from elimination in our recent second-chance vote.

Timberlake is the favorite to take the crown, judging by recent polls, but anything can happen on the Internet. Before you vote, though, ask yourself three questions:

1. Which host’s sketches were you still watching days or weeks after the episode originally aired?
2. Which host could join the cast tomorrow and hold his or her own, week-in and week-out?
3. Which host do you most want to see on Saturday Night Live again?

Click below to see the tale of the tape for all six finalists, and cast your vote for a Mr. or Mrs. Saturday Night we can all be proud of. READ FULL STORY

Adam Sandler's sage advice to Jay Leno: 'Go to Fox!' -- VIDEO

NBC’s coming late-night shakeup affects three-fourths of the the network’s post-11:30 p.m. programming. (Enjoy stability while it lasts, Last Call with Carson Daly.) Saturday Night Live has to find a new Weekend Update anchor… because Seth Meyers is moving to host Late Night… because Jimmy Fallon is moving to host The Tonight Show… because Jay Leno is getting forced out, just three years after NBC reinstated him as Tonight‘s host. Phew!

So while everyone else at the network is movin’ on up, what should Jay’s next move be?

His pal Adam Sandler — who stopped by last night to talk Grown Ups 2 The Streets — has a few ideas. Namely: “Don’t you think he should just take it easy, enjoy, breathe… maybe go to Fox, do a show at 11:00?” he asked Tonight‘s audience, to cheers and applause. Leno laughed off the suggestion genially, as is his wont — but you’ve got to wonder if he might consider it seriously come 2014.

Bradley Cooper and Jimmy Fallon play faceketball, jackets off -- VIDEO

While we all might be a little fearful of Bradley Cooper playing a sport that could damage that face, there’s no need to worry — no faces were harmed in the playing of this game. Jimmy Fallon introduced “faceketball” where both men wear basketball hoops on their heads and try to score on the other person’s. What we really learned during this game was that Fallon isn’t so great at shooting hoops. The game was supposed to go until one of them scored three, but after two, they stop.

John Krasinski lip syncs 'I'll Make Love to You.' This is not a dream. -- VIDEO

Your pretend boyfriend John Krasinski stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night and everyone fell in love with him a little more. Fallon and Krasinski decided to have a Lip Sync-Off, competing with songs like “Don’t Cry Out Loud,” “Teenage Dream,” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Expect plenty of exaggerated emotions, fake earpiece checks, a pretend microphone drop, and dramatic hand movements galore. The Roots loved it! Also, stay for the full 8 minutes, because Krasinski finally takes his jacket off for the last song. It really makes the whole thing.

Watch the video below. Who do you think won? Are you sort of loving Krasinski’s beard?: READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel drank (a lot!) during his Time 100 toast -- VIDEO

The Time 100 Gala is about celebrating influence, about honoring great achievements in the arts, in business, and in political and civic life. It is also, according to Jimmy Kimmel, about “having dinner with the people who buy ads in their [Time] magazine.” The late-night host said this, and a bunch else, amidst a 4-minute toast during the event. Lena Dunham (“the kid genius”) cheers off-screen. Besam Yousef gets some advice (“move”). Kimmel drinks — and drinks. Most people laugh, kind of. Kimmel’s tablemate Jimmy Fallon thinks the whole thing is hi-larious. It is! The wine looks delicious!

'Mad Men' star Jessica Pare says 'Zou Bisou Bisou' bug runs in the family -- VIDEO

It’s been over a year since Megan Draper (Jessica Paré) serenaded her husband — and all of his co-workers — with the sexy French song “Zou Bisou Bisou” in Mad Men‘s fifth season premiere. Even so, her performance is still discussion fodder for people like Jimmy Fallon, who spent the lion’s share of his Paré interview last night on that very subject.

The bad news: The actress didn’t cap off her first-ever late night appearance with an encore of “Zou Bisou Bisou.” The good news: Paré revealed that her own mother has done impromptu “Zou Bisou Bisou” reenactments at her boyfriend’s birthday and random dinner parties, which gives us an excuse to imagine Julia Ormond wearing a mini-dress and shimmying her shoulders at Jon Hamm… all as Kiernan Shipka watches, horrified. You listening, Matt Weiner?

On the scene at the Time 100 Gala red carpet

Lena Dunham, Joe Biden, and George Saunders — as well as Jimmy Fallon, Arianna Huffington, Dr. Oz, Christina Aguilera, and dozens more — gathered together to mingle with and honor one another at Time’s 100 Gala, celebrating its annual “100 Most Influential People in the World” issue. The mix made for some interesting red carpet conversation, as entertainers mixed with politicians and publishing figures. Most attendees agreed it was an honor to be in the same room as so many other luminaries. Michael Kors, who showed up with Olivia Munn and sunglasses, gave out fashion tips. Barbara Walters talked up the latest biography she’s loving. That and other tidbits from the carpet below.
