Jennifer Lawrence headlines TIME 100 list

TIME magazine prefers to be diplomatic and doesn’t rank its list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World, which was announced today. But let’s be frank: in the world of entertainment, Jennifer Lawrence is nonpareil. The 22-year-old Oscar winner and star of the Hunger Games blockbuster franchise was lauded by none other than Jodie Foster, her director from The Beaver and one of the few actresses to attain Lawrence’s critical and popular success — and more importantly, know how to translate it into real influence.

“Sure, this girl can act. But, man, this girl can also just be,” Foster wrote, describing seeing early cuts of Lawrence’s Oscar-nominated performance in Winter’s Bone. “All of those painful secrets in her face, the feeling that there’s some terrible past that’s left impossibly angled bone and weariness in its wake. She’s worn from the pain of living — something none of her characters would ever have the energy to articulate. It’s just part of her, like skin and muscle. The good news is that Jen, her good-humored, ballsy, free-spirited alter ego with the husky voice and a propensity for junk food … Jen, the spritely tomboy from Kentucky — that Jen’s got it together. A hoot. A gem. A gem with a killer stare.”

Melissa McCarthy describes her frantic 'Saturday Night Live' quick change on 'Fallon' -- VIDEO

We’re all excited to see what Melissa McCarthy is going to do on this week’s Saturday Night Live (please Arlene, please please) and her interview with Fallon last night just got us even more pumped.

Looking like a total movie star — that hair — McCarthy described her quick change between the cold open and her monologue last time on SNL as ”the only time I’ve truly been assaulted… lovingly.”

Listen to the story of McCarthy’s magical change from a buck-toothed, muscular singer on Lawrence Welk to a dancing star in her monologue (all in 40 seconds):

Late Night Wars redux: Who will you watch at 11:30? -- VOTE

Less than one year from now, Jimmy Fallon will inherit late night TV’s most highly-coveted showcase: The Tonight Show.

Though the road to yesterday’s official announcement was a bumpy one — ousted host Jay Leno’s been joking about being knifed in the back by the snakes at NBC for weeks — the dust now seems to have cleared. Everyone from ABC rival Jimmy Kimmel to ex-Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien has issued congratulations to Fallon, a performer who seems to personify amiability. Even Leno tempered his barbs last night, calling Fallon “a hell of a guy” and saying that he’ll do “a great job.”

So now that the succession plan is settled, we can start to focus on what’s really important: which guy we’ll be watching come February 2014.  READ FULL STORY

Nick Offerman, Jimmy Fallon, and Blake Shelton remix 'Ho Hey,' chicken-style -- VIDEO

We know you all have heard ”Ho Hey” by The Lumineers a million times, but trust us this will make you chuckle.

Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Blake Shelton, Nick Offerman, and Fallon all dressed up as chickens (The Chickeneers) and clucked their way through the song.

We can’t help but think Ron Swanson would not approve of dressing as a thing he loves to eat, but we’ll let it pass.

The song ended with the message ”Happy Easter from Late Night!” Watch the whole thing here:

Usher makes the lights go out on 'Jimmy Fallon' -- VIDEO

Usher visited Jimmy Fallon last night to promote the new season of The Voice, and it initially seemed as if his electric presence short-circuited the entire stage. ”This is very interesting,” Fallon said, as the lights went pitch black just as he was introducing Usher. ”No, this is good, you guys. This is the way he wants it to be lit.”

Before he finished that sentence the lights came back on.

What followed was a delightful, if at times a little confusing interview. Usher teased that people don’t always get his humor — but that he was like ”black Larry David”– after a joke about his rings fell flat. ”I don’t know what to believe anymore,” Fallon said. ”It’s a tricky interview for me.”

With all these tricks for Fallon, it almost seems like NBC is putting him through a rigorous vetting process for something.

Jimmy Fallon addresses 'Tonight Show' rumors -- VIDEO

To hear Jay Leno tell it, the network he’s called home for more than two decades is “extinct,” his bosses are “snakes,” and those ratings that are oh-so-terrible? “A 28-year-old woman from Serbia has a rare brain condition where she sees everything upside down. The good news? … She thinks NBC is at the top of the ratings.”

But in Jimmy Fallon’s world, the possibility that he’ll take over the network’s late-night crown jewel has him imagining a whole other possibility. Watch below:

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon wrap up 'Timberweek' with 'History of Rap 4' -- VIDEO

You knew that Justin Timberlake wasn’t doing to spend an entire week with Jimmy Fallon on Late Night and not deliver another “History of Rap” medley. After four nights of mostly comic schtick, the duo saved the best for last on Friday night, a crowd-pleaser that bridged the tunes of Master P to the Beastie Boys to Salt ‘n’ Pepa to Eminem. It was Timberlake’s swan song for the week, and he teased that, “This is the last time [for 'History of Rap']…”

“…until the next time we do this,” said Fallon.

Watch the video below, along with their previous three collaborations. READ FULL STORY

Justin Timberlake and Steve Carell lend a hand, and an arm, to Jimmy Fallon -- VIDEO

Two years ago, Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell discovered the secret to a successful skit: fake arms, duh. As if every comedian didn’t already know that, right? Well, for Fallon and Ferrell, it started when the duo relived their Canadian soap opera days on Jacob’s Patience, and Ferrell attempted to make a sandwich using mannequin arms. The result was, well, memorable:

So memorable in fact, that last night, Steve Carell and Justin Timberlake joined the cast of Jacob’s Patience as the owners of a men’s clothing store, specializing — not surprisingly — in suits and ties. Fallon, as a customer at the store, had his inseam measured, was given water to drink, and even learned how to tie a tie… all with fake arms. Watch the clips below! READ FULL STORY

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon bring sexy back, barbershop quintet-style -- VIDEO

There’s just one thing better than four guys wearing goofy striped blazers and singing tight harmonies: Five guys wearing goofy striped blazers and singing tight harmonies, especially if one of them happens to be Justin Timberlake.

Late Night‘s Ragtime Gals can make any song sound that much classier — but their talents are particularly suited to this swoonworthy cover of “SexyBack.” Take note, college a cappella groups nationwide: this is how it’s done.

Jimmy Fallon's 'Justin Timberweek' kicks off -- VIDEO

Just can’t get enough of the Barry Gibb Talk Show? You’re in luck — all this week, the man behind Robin Gibb will be appearing with his “brother” Barry on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Though Fallon and Justin Timberlake haven’t officially broken out their Bee Gees impressions yet — and might not break them out at all, given Robin Gibb’s untimely death — the pair’s goofy impersonations of everyone from Adele to each other should be more than enough to keep you amused through Friday.

Take, for example, this first clip, in which Fallon and Timberlake trade a few off-color jokes about how they’re both sick — “We shouldn’t have made out,” Fallon says gravely — before discussing the singer’s recent return to SNL. Lessons learned: The “D–k in a Box” singing duo is actually called 2:30 a.m., Timberlake’s character in those sketches is named Raif, and nothing amuses these guys more than making weird guitar riff noises at each other.
