Taylor Swift gets nerdy in Jimmy Fallon's 'Ew!' sketch

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.”

Jimmy Fallon gets power played by a former 'Tonight' host in 'House of Cards' parody

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.

Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers pay tribute to Robin Williams

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.

Watch Jimmy Fallon and Julia Roberts throw balls at each other's faces

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.

See The Rock join Jimmy Fallon for an old-school workout

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

Jimmy Fallon has one question for Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and Ice Cube: 'Sup'? -- VIDEO

FALLON-SUP-22-JUMP-ST.jpg

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.

Charlize Theron and Josh Hartnett face off in charades on 'Tonight Show' -- VIDEO

Charlize Theron can do just about anything — except sing. Or win a game of charades.

The Million Ways to Die in the West star went on The Tonight Show Tuesday evening, where she teamed up with announcer Steve Higgins to play a game of charades against Jimmy Fallon and Penny Dreadful star Josh Hartnett. Meaning we got to see Theron act out all the ways one can commit murder when she picked Murder She Wrote as her clue. And we thought Monster was the end of her killing career!

Jimmy Fallon is winning his bet with the Montreal Canadiens... so far

If the New York Rangers keep playing like they did on Saturday afternoon, Jimmy Fallon is going to be the winner of one high-profile bet.

Once the Montreal Canadiens found out they were set to play the Broadway Blueshirts in the NHL’s Eastern Conference Final, Les Habitants challenged the Tonight Show host to a friendly wager:

Fallon countered, and both sides virtually shook on the bet: READ FULL STORY

Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon flip lips, butcher classic 'Grease' song -- VIDEO

BARRYMORE-FALLON-LIP-SWAP.jpg

Drew Barrymore’s doing the interview rounds for her new film, Blended, co-starring Adam Sandler. When she stopped by The Tonight Show on Friday, she made a confession to pal Jimmy Fallon — she kind of wished that just one time, she could interview herself.

It was the setup for the host’s silly “Lip Flip” game. Courtesy of a cheap camera trick, Fallon’s mouth was placed on Barrymore’s face, and vice-versa. Barrymore impersonated Fallon by talking about his love of everything New York (“Pizza, pizza, pizza, sometimes I just say ‘za”) and otherwise making a bunch of goofy sounds. As Barrymore, Fallon played up the actress’ free-spirited side, declaring: “You know what I’m really into right now? Licking tree frogs.”

The ridiculous bit concluded with a terrible rendition of the Grease song “You’re the One That I Want,” which, of course, cracked up both “singers.” Take a look: READ FULL STORY
