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.”

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.

Audra McDonald sings more Yahoo! Answers on 'Jimmy Fallon'

There are many wonderful things on the internet, but sadly they aren’t set to music. And because Jimmy Fallon has made a habit of mashing up randomness and song on The Tonight Show, last night he set out to change that.

Teaming up with Josh Charles (The Good Wife) and a pair of smashing silk jackets, Fallon invited multiple Tony winner Audra McDonald to put the best (that is, highest-voted) Yahoo! Answers answers to music.

Video: Halle Berry and Jimmy Fallon literally roll together on 'Tonight'

Halle Berry’s next project, Extant, is full of mysteries, so it only serves to reason that she’s going on talk shows and doing mysterious things.

Or at least that’s the only way we can think to make sense of this clip from The Tonight Show Tuesday night, which features Berry and Jimmy Fallon doing some sort of joint hamster-ball somersault to the sound of crashing cymbals. In case you were wondering, we counted two and a half revolutions.

Watch 'Neil Young' cover Iggy Azalea's 'Fancy' on 'Jimmy Fallon'

It’s “Déjà vu” all over again.

In a segment on Monday’s episode of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon appeared in the guise of rock legend Neil Young to put an acoustic spin on “Fancy” by Iggy Azalea. Fallon crooned, and even threw in a little harmonica, but the performance kicked into a whole other gear with the arrival of David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash, who worked up the famous four part harmonies of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (with Fallon making this a CSN”Y” reunion).

The Roots debut Harry Potter rap on 'Jimmy Fallon'

As Ryan Gosling once told Rachel McAdams, “[Harry Potter] wasn’t over! It’s still isn’t over.”

In hindsight, viewers probably could have guessed that Jimmy Fallon’s week of Tonight Show episodes from Orlando would have a Harry Potter component. On Wednesday night, the show included a segment filmed at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, in which clueless parents answered trivia questions about J.K. Rowling’s bestselling series.

But the show took the promotion of the theme park to another level later in the show when The Roots performed a Harry Potter rap. Just a few of the Harry Potter-isms Tariq Trotter name-checked in the 60-second song: Extendable ears, the Three Broomsticks, Butterbeer, Gryffindor, Azkaban, Quidditch, Diagon Alley, and the Hogwarts Express.

Kevin Hart confronts his fear of roller coasters on 'Jimmy Fallon'

Just because you think like a man doesn’t mean you can ride like one too.

On The Tonight Show Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon took advantage of the show’s week-long relocation to Orlando by taking Think Like a Man Too star Kevin Hart to the Universal Studios Florida theme park for a turn on the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit.

“Really, I don’t like roller coasters,” Hart told Fallon. “And you made me do it.”

Brian Williams 'raps' 'Baby Got Back' on 'Tonight Show'

Always wanted to hear NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams declare that his “anaconda don’t want none unless you’ve got buns, hun”?

Today is your lucky day, you beautiful weirdo. Brian Williams may love to joke around (see: all his 30 Rock appearances), but even he knew better than to perform “Baby Got Back” live on The Tonight Show. So, instead, Fallon’s team had some fun by making a mashup video of Williams “performing” the Sir Mix-A-Lot hit a lá “Rapper’s Delight.” Check out the whole number — including Savannah Guthrie and Co. on the back-up “Yeahs!” — below:

Get your khakis pressed and hike your belt up high, because it’s time for some Father’s Day fun.

On Thursday’s edition of Tonight, Jimmy Fallon revived his popular Evolution of Dance franchise once again, bringing in New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to help him work through “The Evolution of Dad Dancing” — from the “Oh, Stop It! I’m Not Embarrassing You” to the “Dance You Do At A Springsteen Concert.”

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels toy with fake arms on 'Tonight'

Do they even use real arms in Canada?

On Tuesday’s edition of Tonight, Fallon “revealed” that guests Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey once had roles on Jacob’s Patience, the imaginary Canadian soap opera Fallon also starred in not too long ago. The catch? Carrey was under an exclusive arm modeling contract, and Daniels had terrible arm acne. The solution? Fake arms! READ FULL STORY
