Tag: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (11-20 of 117)

Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake rule 'Saturday Night Live' tonight: Talk about it here!

#JimmyFallon. #JustinTimberlake. #SaturdayNightLive. #BestEpisodeEver?

Let’s not take things too far. We should, however, be prepared for an SNL episode where everyone’s at the top of their game. Fallon (the episode’s host) and Timberlake (its nominal musical guest, though you know he’s basically co-hosting) tend to bring out the best in everyone around them whenever they stop by SNL individually. And with their powers combined, TimberFal can reach all kinds of heights.

Surprises, of course, will be in store. But given what we already know about this dynamic duo, it’s safe to make a few predictions about what to expect as well. Such as:

Best of 2013: A comparison of Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel

Comparing Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel is like comparing “The Baby Bachelor” and the “Puppy Predictors” — adorable, fun, a little bit wrong, but mostly inevitable. However, the good news is that overall, 2013 was good to both hosts. Politically, it might have been a little better to Fallon considering his upcoming gig taking over Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show in 2014. But on a creative level, both late-night hosts brought their A game.

Fallon spent 2013 perfecting the art of getting celebrities to play ridiculously awesome games. From playing “Sticky Balls” with Channing Tatum to getting Ryan Reynolds to agree to a very wet game of war, Fallon was a master at making viral videos. Some of his many highlight include:

Late Night Highlight: Jimmy Fallon and Kelly Ripa introduce 'Sauna Shorts' -- VIDEO

Today in This Exists: Sauna Shorts, a newfangled post-workout relaxer/weight loss contraption “lined with a silicone heating element that adjusts from 95° F to 167° F to induce perspiration and increase blood flow to help reduce inflammation of joints and help soothe tense, sore muscles.”

They also look mighty fetching when worn by Jimmy Fallon and Kelly Ripa, who donned the sweat-inducing pants on Fallon’s show last night. Check out the moment in our highlights video below. Warning: The word “crotch” comes up early and often.

Jimmy Fallon and Alec Baldwin starred in a cop show in the '80s -- VIDEO

Talk about a spit-take.

Alec Baldwin stopped by Monday night’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and the duo revealed some “found footage” of their late, questionably great ’80s cop sitcom, Point Pleasant Police Department.

“We get into a lot of, you know, messy situations,” Baldwin teased as Fallon rolled the clip.

And Baldwin’s right, though the two don’t solve any crimes. Instead, they snack — a lot — and, well, let’s just say they get into each other’s faces. Perhaps they were simply trying to enunciate?

Check out the clips below. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon discusses Jay Leno and 'Tonight Show' plans

Great news for viewers who just can’t get enough of Jimmy Fallon slow-jamming the news — it’s not going away anytime soon.

In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Fallon shared his plans for his move up to The Tonight Show, and explained that the Late Night team intend to pretty much do the exact same thing, just an hour earlier. “We have to. That’s my background from Saturday Night Live,” Fallon explained. “I do sketches, I act, I do impressions. It’s just part of my background, so I have to do that stuff. There’s a hole in late night for that. No one else is doing it. We started doing it five years ago and we’ve gotten really good at it. I’m doing musical stuff, ’cause I love music and so do the Roots. And people look forward to doing musical stuff when they come on our show….We’re doing our show as if we were doing The Tonight Show. It’s news to everyone else. We have been doing The Tonight Show.” READ FULL STORY

Warning: May cause enjoyment of Miley Cyrus

Why, oh why can’t this be the only thing I have ever witnessed her do?

Watch the Brady family of our generation — Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon, and the Roots — cover “We Can’t Stop” a cappella on Tuesday’s Late Night: READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon and Lindsay Lohan ditch twerking for scrumping -- VIDEO

Looks like Jimmy and Lindsay are giving Miley a run for her money.

Making a surprise appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, America’s favorite red-head Lindsay Lohan joined Fallon on Thursday for a hilarious sketch on pop culture playing Stephanie Sullivan on a fake TeenNick show called “Ew!”

Sporting curly pigtails and a spiked fitted cap Lohan tapped into her inner teenybopper as Stephanie –catching up with her drool-braced-faced BFFLFR (that’s best friend forever for life for realsies) host Sara (that’s S-A-R-A, no h!) for a recap of their latest adventures.

After gushing over the One Direction: This Is Us movie and Harry Styles–making awkward kissy-faces, the two switched up the conversation to Miley’s new video, but when Stephanie was prompted by Sara to twerk, Stephanie was clearly was over it.

“Did you see the new Miley Cyrus video?” Sara asked. “We should do some twerking!”

“Ew! No, Twerking is so 2-0-1-3, said Stephanie. Nowadays it’s all about scrumping!”

So who do you think has the upper hand, Miley or Stephanie? Watch the two get down in the hilarious clip  below and decide: READ FULL STORY

Tina Fey talks nip slip, her adorably weird daughter on 'Late Night' -- VIDEO

Hold up: Did you hear that Tina Fey had a slight wardrobe malfunction at last Sunday’s Emmy Awards?

Yeah, that topless shot in her last batch of SNL promos wasn’t totally without context. “If you videotaped it and like, slowed it down for one second, when I went to hug my friend Tracey Wigfield, who I won the Emmy with, I guess there was a little momentary situation,” Fey explained to her longtime pal Jimmy Fallon on Late Night yesterday. Only “some creeper” would have thought to look for it, Fey said — and if you want to be that creeper, you’re welcome to scrutinize Fey and Wigfield’s acceptance speech.

In less naked news, Fey and Fallon also spent a good portion of their chat talking about their kids. Specifically, newish dad Fallon asked for advice from Fey, who by now is an old pro at raising daughters. Her best words of guidance: “You just want them to be little fun weirdos and nerds for as long as possible.” And if the stories Fey then told about her oldest daughter Alice are any indication, she’s certainly fomenting a wonderfully weird environment. (Also: Is it just me, or does Fey’s imitation of Alice make her sound an awful lot like Nasim Pedrad’s SNL character Bedelia?)

Jimmy Fallon, the Roots, and its residents tell you how to get to Sesame Street -- VIDEO

Warning: The following video will make you grin uncontrollably.

Late Night‘s occasional “classroom instruments” videos — in which Jimmy Fallon, the Roots, and special guests perform popular songs accompanied only by woodblocks, toy xylophones, and the like — are generally pretty great. For pure joy value, though, none of the previous clips can compare to this one — which features Fallon and his band performing Sesame Street‘s theme song with Big Bird, Elmo, Grover, and the rest of that show’s principal cast of muppets.

They’re counted in by The Count. Partway through, Cookie Monster devours his instrument. The Roots’ Black Thought does a Sesame Street-themed rap, assisted by Abby Cadabby. This video is, in short, awesome, and you should watch it immediately.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jimmy Fallon, and Stephen Merchant's 'lip-synch battle for the ages' -- VIDEO

Last night’s episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon took an unexpected turn when writer/comedian/actor Stephen Merchant showed up with a little game he invented with his pals John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. It’s simple, really: Each person gets the opportunity to lip-synch two songs of choice, and whoever does the best job of lip-synching — which, Ashlee Simpson can attest, isn’t easy — wins!

But this was a three-way battle between Merchant, Fallon, and this week’s EW cover star, Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

First up, Merchant kicked things off with the DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince tune “Boom! Shake the Room.” Then Fallon took things back to the ’80s with the Human League classic “Don’t You Want Me?,” and Gordon-Levitt took things back even further with Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer,” complete with a mic-stand drop.

Round two consisted of Merchant shaking his groove thang to Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies,” Fallon getting the crowd involved in the A-ha hit “Take On Me,” and Gordon-Levitt bringing things home with Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.” Watch all the magic unfold (and find out who won) in the video below:
