Brad Pitt has a 'breakdance conversation' with Jimmy Fallon on 'Tonight Show'

It’s a little less conversation, a little more action in a new video from The Tonight Show that features Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon engaging in a “Breakdance Conversation”—meaning they breakdance in response to one another as subtitles tell us what words their moves translate to.

For example: Pitt, who currently stars in World War II film Fury, back-flips off a wall at one point, which apparently means, “If you don’t see [my movie], I’ll be furious.” Breakdancing Brad’s got jokes! READ FULL STORY

Fallon's 'Ew!' hits No. 26 on Hot 100

Jimmy Fallon’s celebrity-buds-hanging-out, viral-video-spawning version of the Tonight Show continues to hit new peaks. Now, a song Fallon produced with will.i.am as a joke has found itself on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Ew!” features Fallon and will.i.am in full-on teen girl garb as they make fun of other, similarly awkward girls. Everything is “ew” for the pair, but as will.i.am explains, “I am hating, I am merely conversating.”

The novelty single has shot to No. 26 on the chart, probably thanks to will.i.am’s hook and Fallon’s surprisingly good flow. “This is unbelievable!” Fallon said. “No. 26? I’d be happy with 99!”

This isn’t the first time a Tonight Show host has made the chart: Steve Allen did it twice in 1963, but that was years after he left as host.

He probably didn’t have a hilarious, Questlove-featuring music video.

Kerry Washington schools Jimmy Fallon in a game of Box of Lies

Oh, Jimmy Fallon. Don’t you know not to challenge Olivia Pope to a game about lying?

Last night, during Kerry Washington’s appearance on The Tonight Show, Fallon and Washington played a very quick game of “Box of Lies”—in which each contestant picks a box, describes what’s in it, and the other person has to guess if they’re lying about the box’s contents. You know, the one he played with Jennifer Lawrence.

Let’s just say that Washington proved that Pope’s lie-detecting talents aren’t entirely fictional.

Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Jimmy Fallon face off in lip-sync battle

Who knew Blake Shelton was such a fan of ’80s jams?

Adam Levine does a pretty great Eddie Vedder impression on 'Fallon'

Who knew Adam Levine had such range?

Tuesday night on The Tonight Show, Levine showed off some pretty impressive impressions when Jimmy Fallon challenged the Maroon 5 crooner to a game of musical impressions, except it isn’t a Jimmy-Fallon-celebrity-game without a cutesy twist. In the styles of specific artists like Michael Jackson and Iggy Azalea, they riffed on kiddie tunes like the Sesame Street theme song and “Old McDonald.” Thus, Levine had to ditch the Maroon 5 wailing and sing a grizzled version of “The Muffin Man” in the style of Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder.

For once, it seems Fallon has been bested in the impressions department—though to be fair, Iggy Azalea’s accent does seem to be of an indeterminate origin.

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.
