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.
Tag: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (21-30 of 105)
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.
Watch the video below:
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
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?
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:
Don’t get us wrong — we’ve got no beef with Seth Meyers. His wry delivery is perfect for Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update, and he’s written plenty of classic sketches, including last fall’s masterful Louie/Lincoln parody.
But when word broke that NBC will supposedly bring in Meyers to host Late Night once Jimmy Fallon decamps for The Tonight Show, we couldn’t help meeting the news with a noncommittal shrug. Sure, he’d be a fine man for the job, and God knows SNL could use some new blood in its writers room. At the same time, though, wouldn’t it be nice if NBC didn’t pick a man to do this job?
While cable has its share of female-fronted late night talk shows — E!’s Chelsea Lately, Bravo’s Kathy, MTV’s fledgling Nikki & Sara Live – the networks haven’t featured a lady late night host since The Wanda Sykes Show crashed and burned on Fox in 2010. Among the Big Three networks alone, the record is even worse; there’s never been a late night chat show hosted solely by a woman on ABC, NBC, or CBS, though Joy Behar was one of The Midnight Hour‘s rotating hosts in 1990.
Simply put, that is ridiculous. And here are 10 funny women we’d like to see make history in Jimmy Fallon’s old seat.
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:
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.
We all loved Justified‘s Timothy Olyphant in the film Go, but his memorable rant on The Family Circus may never have happened if he hadn’t gotten replaced in the 1998 Sandra Bullock-Nicole Kidman movie Practical Magic. He shared the tale of his last-minute casting — and release — with Jimmy Fallon last night. Watch it below. We wish more actors would share these kind of stories. You know they all have them.

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.
