Timothy Olyphant explains how he was fired from 'Practical Magic' -- VIDEO

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.

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.

Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon sing 'Ivory and Ivory' on 'Late Night' -- VIDEO

We all know that the late-night business is super cutthroat and can get a bit rough — to say  nothing of the accompanying ice cream flavor rivalries.

So, when Stephen Colbert stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night, things were a little awkward. Sure, the two men had once been BFF for six months, but those days are history. Fallon and Colbert tried to break the ice by exchanging golden envelopes. Too bad inside the envelopes were invitations to each others’ competing Oscar parties (speaking of which…).

Can these two ever be BFF again? Well, maybe not, but at least they’ll always have songs. Therefore, they did what they had to do and silently walked to a white piano to sing “Ivory and Ivory” to each other. While it wasn’t as good as Colbert’s rendition of “Friday” (but really, what is?), it’s still pretty great.

Black Thought raps about Oscar-nominated films on 'Jimmy Fallon' -- VIDEO

We know that Jimmy Fallon and the Roots are the kings of producing fun hip-hop and rap songs about pop culture. See here with Obama, here for the “History of Rap,” and here for a collection of TV theme songs.

Therefore, when an audience member asked Fallon to have someone catch him up, through a rap song, on the Oscar-nominated films, we knew it was going to be epic. Tariq ‘Black Thought’ Trotter took on the duties and completely killed it.

Props to Tariq for realizing that Fandango rhymes perfectly with Django and for pronouncing Quvenzhané flawlessly.

Alison Brie's freestyle rap skills are really improving -- VIDEO

The new, Dan Harmon-less Community may not be quite as brilliant as it once was — but at least its stars are still as charming and talented as ever.

During Alison Brie’s appearance on Late Night yesterday, Jimmy Fallon asked her to speak about her amateur freestyle rapping, which began as something she’d do on set as a joke. Her secret hobby was exposed last year, thanks to a gag reel from Community‘s third season and this impromptu performance with costar Danny Pudi at a concert in December. When Fallon asked the actress to spit a few rhymes right then and there, she happily obliged.

The resulting rap is much better than the one Brie performed two months ago, proving that a stretch of unanticipated downtime is just what a lady needs to polish her freestyle skillz. Check it out below, or Ali B will take you to court:

Molly Shannon and Jimmy Fallon giggle and reminisce on 'Late Night' -- VIDEO

Can former SNL stars appear on Late Night every night? Host Jimmy Fallon is rarely better than when he’s gabbing with one of his old castmates about life at the sketch show — which sounds sort of like a giant, extended sleepover party for adults.

Case in point: Molly Shannon dropped by yesterday, ostensibly to talk about her children’s book (Tilly the Trickster, which looks pretty dang cute) and her guest spot on HBO’s Enlightened. But in the end, the plugs seemed sort of beside the point. Fallon and Shannon — whom he calls “pals” — mostly just spent 10 minutes gabbing about the dumb things they used to do to amuse each other during their SNL days. Watching the interview is sort of like eavesdropping on a private conversation, but not in a creepy way. Check the video below to see what I mean — and to learn which character Molly created just to make Jimmy laugh:

Jimmy Fallon presents a cappella freak show with 'Sounds...Good?' game -- VIDEO

Love watching talentless wannabes destroy your favorite pop songs while auditioning for singing shows, but hate how mean-spirited the whole enterprise can be?

Jimmy Fallon has the answer: a new game called “Sounds…Good?” in which he challenges audience members to sing radio hits while wearing noise-canceling headphones. The twist: As they’re crooning, a sound guy (dressed as a cowboy, because why not) randomly changes the song’s pitch up and down. Even a great singer wouldn’t sound good under these conditions — so the three contestants who stepped up to the plate last night had no chance.

Jimmy Fallon presents episode 4 of 'Downton Sixbey' -- VIDEO

Two episodes in one week? Why, it’s almost as good as discovering you’re heir to yet another massive fortune.

Fans of Downton Sixbey, Jimmy Fallon’s Downton Abbey spoof, were in for a treat. The third episode ended in a bit of a cliffhanger: Questlove had fallen in love with one of the Downton girls! And last night, viewers learned that Questlove wanted to marry not Lord James’ “loveliest daughter Lady Catherine” or “smoking hot daughter Lady Amber,” but instead, perennial bridesmaid Lady Hedith (Fred Armisen). Because of the tie-in to the real Downton — money troubles! — James wanted to join the two families as soon as possible. (“This family is f—ed up,” Lady Whoopi Goldberg declared.)

Watch below for all the romance of a Questlove/Fred Armisen wedding, and to discover what accused wife murderer Higgins’ true crime was. With apologies to Al Roker, let’s just say the Dowager Countess wouldn’t approve. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon presents episode 3 of 'Downton Sixbey'

Hard times have fallen upon Downton Sixbey, the prim British estate within Late Night with Jimmy Fallon‘s studio. Thanks to the Earl’s iffy investments — in the Shake Weight and a restaurant chain called Thank Heaven Friday Is Here, or THFIH — the manor’s residents must resort to cost-cutting measures like sharing a single glass of wine in the grossest way possible and recycling tired, no-longer-topical jokes. (“Change replacement refs to Honey Boo Boo. Perhaps she tries to eat the football because she thinks it’s a piece of chocolate.”)

But don’t lose hope, fair ladies and kind sirs! There’s a light at the end of the corridor, in the form of a proposal that just might shake Sixbey to its very foundation. And more to the point: Unlike the last few episodes of Downton Abbey, this video won’t make you sob until you have no tears left, as long as the sight of Fred Armisen sucking down a goblet full of spit doesn’t make you cry.
