Chris Pratt stretched his improv skills ahead of his Saturday Night Live hosting duties this Saturday, Sept. 27 by appearing on The Tonight Show. And if his game of “Word Sneak” with Jimmy Fallon is any indication, Pratt is more than ready for any off-the-cuff moments Studio 8H might require of him.

While singing won’t help Alicia Florrick win in the courtroom any time soon, Emmy winner Julianna Margulies proved she could at least boldly attempt to carry a tune on last night’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Joan Rivers’ career spanned several decades filled with dozens of hilarious film, television, and stage appearances. The comedienne and TV host, who died on Thursday at age 81, repurposed her own life experiences into biting, insightful, groundbreaking comedy.
From her early appearances on the Sammy Davis, Jr. Show to playing a robot in Spaceballs to her recent appearances on shows like Louie, Rivers imbued her jokes with energy and wit that few others have matched. In honor of her vast and memorable career, here’s a tribute featuring a few of the countless times Rivers made audiences laugh.
Taylor Swift? Ew.
Swift is the latest star to guest on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show sketch “Ew!,” a mock Teen Nick show that features Fallon dressed as a teenage girl who says “Ew!” in response to almost everything. In the sketch, which aired Wednesday, Swift plays a nerdy 13-year-old named Natalie who likes “to eat apricots” and has “a Band-Aid collection.”
Like political offices on House of Cards, TV hosting gigs aren’t assigned through democracy. So it’s almost no surprise that when Jimmy Fallon did a parody of the popular Netflix drama on The Tonight Show Tuesday, his hosting chair was quickly nabbed by a former Tonight star.
Tuesday’s episode of The Tonight Show started not with a “hello,” but with a “nanu nanu” from The Roots’ Questlove. The drummer was paying tribute to Robin Williams, who died Monday at 63: “Nanu nanu” was how Mork said goodbye to his fellow aliens in ’70s sitcom Mork and Mindy, the show that gave Williams his start.

Julia Roberts must not have related to Amber from Clueless, because she’ll happily engage in an activity where balls fly at her nose.
Continuing a growing tradition of getting celebrities to do ridiculous things on national television, Jimmy Fallon enlisted Roberts in a game of “Face Balls” Thursday night. The premise? The two would throw see-through inflatable balls at each other’s faces, then watch their reactions in slow motion.
When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stopped by The Tonight Show to promote his new film Hercules, Jimmy Fallon asked about Johnson’s workout routine. From there, Johnson and Fallon put on some killer wigs, reenacted classic workout VHS tapes, and even perfected the art of the “squat thrust” as The Fungo Brothers.
As the Fungo Brothers always say, “You gotta hustle for the muscle!” READ FULL STORY
22 Jump Street stars Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and Ice Cube surely had plenty to say about their new film when they stopped by The Tonight Show on Friday. But host Jimmy Fallon had just one question for the stars: “Sup?”
It’s a simple question that the pals made unnecessarily complicated, answering the greeting in the most ridiculous ways possible. Sup-sounding replies included: soap, lentil soup, sippy cup and… Patrick Duffy?
Tatum and Hill bro out in the new comedy, going undercover as college kids, so we get the joke. But the bit comes this-close to bringing on flashbacks of those “Wassup!” Budweiser commercials, a piece of nostalgia no one needed.
