Jonah Hill recently called a papparazzo a “f—–” in a video captured by TMZ and, after extensively apologizing for using the slur in a radio interview with Howard Stern, he addressed the situation again on Tuesday night’s Tonight Show.

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!
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’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
It seems Amy Schumer forgot which late-night show she was visiting on Friday.
When asked what she thought of teeth — because all “Truth or Truth” questions are required to be ridiculous — Schumer replied, “I’ve been told to use less.” Fallon reprimanded his guest while giggling at her answer. “We’re on at an earlier time slot now, Amy!” he said.
The game also revealed some other interesting tidbits, like Fallon’s first words and what Schumer wants on her tombstone.

Whether it’s with classroom instruments or by impersonating Tom Petty, you never quite know how Jimmy Fallon is going to cover a hit song on The Tonight Show. Somehow, the late-night host still manages to surprise — and his interpretation of Jason Derulo’s stomper “Talk Dirty” is no exception.
For Derulo’s hit, Fallon brought back his barbershop group, The Ragtime Gals, on Friday. There are primary color-striped blazers, bow ties, jaunty hats, and…Kevin Spacey.
“I’ve been around the world, don’t speak the language/But your booty don’t need explaining” never sounded so delightful. Take a look: READ FULL STORY
To celebrate reaching three million subscribers on The Tonight Show‘s YouTube channel, Jimmy Fallon did what anyone would do: He got his crew together to sing a rendition of “La Bamba.”
Watch the whole performance, including an attempted (and failed) solo by announcer Steve Higgins, below. Usted es el capitán, Jimmy:
Here's what the other late-night hosts had to say about Stephen Colbert replacing David Letterman -- VIDEO
The comedy community is busy congratulating Stephen Colbert, who has earned the coveted role of Late Show host. The news came Thursday afternoon, just one week after outgoing host David Letterman announced his plans to retire in 2015 — and just in time for other late-night hosts to send their regards during Thursday’s new episodes.
Jon Stewart offered the fondest farewell to his Comedy Central colleague, reminiscing about Colbert’s time on The Daily Show with a ridiculous old clip in which both comedians completely blow it because they’re making each other laugh so hard. But Stewart’s ensuing tribute to the man he calls “a very talented actor, writer, dancer, and improvisational comedian” was touching:
“Truly one of the great pleasures of doing this show has been trying to maintain professional composure whilst Mr. Colbert is making me laugh uncontrollably,” Stewart said on last night’s Daily Show. “So, the exciting news today is I no longer need a cable subscription for the privilege of watching Stephen Colbert. Our good friend Stephen Colbert will be heading to CBS to take over the Late Show from, for at least me, the comedian broadcaster who was the best there ever was, David Letterman. Here is the exciting thing for me — I think Stephen Colbert is up for the challenge. So while we wish Dave the absolute best for a well-earned retirement, there’s no greater joy than seeing a genuinely good man who works as hard as he can every day and deserves all the success in the world actually get that success. For Stephen, we’re just thrilled. Here’s what I’m looking forward to — to be able to walk down Broadway and to look up at the Ed Sullivan Theater marquee and see the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” READ FULL STORY
When the incomparable Stevie Nicks made an appearance on The Tonight Show Wednesday, playing one or two of her hits just wasn’t going to be enough for Jimmy Fallon. The musically-inclined host planned something much more memorable — re-creating the music video for “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” Nicks’s 1981 duet with Tom Petty.
Fallon assumes Petty’s role — shaggy blond wig, floral shirt, and all — while Nicks proves she’s still got it, not to mention a sense of humor. Here’s Fallon’s version:
The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon paid tribute to retiring Late Show star David Letterman with an homage to one of the comedy legend’s most iconic bits: The Top 10 List.
Fallon called his late-night competitor “one in a million” before delivering the sendup, The Top 10 Reasons Why David Letterman Is Retiring, which includes:
10: Wants to quit while he’s still able to compete on Dancing With the Stars.
9. Made millions selling crack to Rob Ford.
8. Time slot was getting too “Jimmyesque.”
7. He’s not retiring — he’s “consciously unhosting.”
6. Stop! Hammock time!
5. Hillary/Letterman 2016!
4. After 31 years, finally got through to the Obamacare website!
3. One word: E-loprah
2. Jay Leno needs a partner for next season’s Amazing Race.
