After every Tonight Show, Jay Leno gives the intro for Jimmy Fallon‘s show, but last night it was a tiny bit different. After weeks of very public rumors about the future of The Tonight Show, current host Leno and probable future host Fallon joined forces to do a sketch that was intended to lampoon the situation.
It was a great idea: switch up the lyrics to West Side Story‘s “Tonight” to mock the duo’s current awkward situation. Except in execution, Fallon came out on top and Leno showed why he might be on the way out.
Is NBC wooing Tina Fey to replace Jimmy Fallon in Late Night? Which classic All-American leading man is looking at joining the Captain America sequel? All this, plus which famous heroine just nabbed the role of Divergent‘s villain, in today’s Last Lap.
And how similar is Selena Gomez to her racy character in Spring Breakers? Plus could Rebel Wilson be volunteering for The Hunger Games? This plus more on the Jimmy Fallon/Jay LenoTonight Show shift in today’s Last Lap.
Is this weird? Is this gross? Is this oddly compelling? All of the above and then some. Justin Bieber was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night and something about the presence of Jimmy Fallon made him comfortable enough to bare his soul. And by baring his soul we mean … baring his abs. He sauntered in with his leather pants, his camo jacket and this red kicks — basically took over the studio like the boss he is — and gave Fallon the money shot of all money shots which you can see right below. Of course he has the cheek to say, ”my abs are not my musical guest,” when Fallon talked about his famous six-pack, because, lets face it, they will always be his very special guest, musical or otherwise.
But that’s not the weird, gross, compelling part. We say this to snap you out of the washboard stomach shock you just went into. And to prepare you for your next spell, we’ll just spit it out — Justin made out with a mannequin on television. Read more…
It is without question that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are going to dominate this Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony. We know this like we know the sun will rise tomorrow. Between their hosting gig and Andy Samberg‘s new job hosting the Independent Spirit Awards, we started to wonder which SNL alums have also tried their hands (and succeeded!) at the award show hosting game.
Honestly, do you even need us to write words here? Probably, we should just shut up and let you watch Robert Pattinson get drenched, even as he wins his Water War game with Jimmy Fallon on Late Night. But maybe after you enjoy the above clip a few times, you will also want to entertain yourself with the many funny things we learned from his appearance on the show. Things such as the fact that Rob is a Corky Romano superfan.
“I love that movie; I would say that’s one of my top five favorite movies,” he said of the Chris Kattan comedy. “That’s the only time I’ve ever genuinely peed my pants … from watching a movie.” Read more…
So, what you see on the left is Kristen Stewart looks absolutely amazo in her LBD, major heels and intensely smoky eyes and black nail polish. It’s like a goth girl who grew up to be super glamorous! But we do love the Kristen on the left, who kicked off her heels (who needs them when you have legs like that) and got up to play a late night game of giant quarters with Jimmy Fallon when she appeared on his show last night! We couldn’t help but giggle at the set of photographs below where she looks like ancient Greek discus thrower! Only, Kristen’s playing for beer, which is also a prize worth fighting for, don’t you think?
It’s fierce competition as you’ll see in the video below, but, not to give away too much or anything, but it’s unreal watching Kristen knock back beer while the audience yells “Drink, drink, drink …” Best segment … ever! Read more…
Ten years ago, if you wanted to spot a famous actor or musician in their natural habitat, your best bet was to take a class at Manhattan’s Jivamukti yoga studio. These days, the paparazzi are regularly stationed outside all the hot spin class studios in New York and L.A., ready to catch everyone from Katie Holmes to Maria Shriver sweaty and glowing after a tough ride. And now we can add Lady Gaga to the list of famous folks who are toning their legs while imagining themselves in a climate-controlled Tour de France. Impressively, Gaga took two classes in a row at the SoulCycle in Union Square, one witness told the New York Daily News. She looked slim, despite her recent claims that she’d gained 25 lbs. and was wearing hoop earrings and full makeup. She barely broke a sweat after the first class, and in the second, she was “hooting and whipping her towel around” when the instructor played “Born This Way.” Last week, Gaga tweeted that she’ll be working with SoulCycle to create a “Ride for Compassion” to promote her latest Born This Way Foundation effort, the Body Revolution.
We think Gaga could raise a lot more money for this Revolution of hers if she enlisted the help of these amazing spinners:
Jimmy Fallon and LMFAO collaborated on the very motivating spin song below in July — maybe they’d consider reuniting for a live performance?
OK, this is probably a coincidence, but it’s one we can’t ignore: Less than two days after our own Kate Spencer asked stars on the Emmys red carpet to sing their favorite TV theme songs, Jimmy Fallon and the cast of Guys With Kids performed their own medley of classic TV tunes. So, it was ostensibly inspired by the fact that Fallon sings the theme song of Guys, which he also co-created, and this performance was clearly planned well in advance, judging by the choreography and cleverly arranged order of songs. But we can’t help but be delusional and pretend we inspired this brilliance.
Above, you have Fallon, Anthony Anderson, Zach Cregger and Jesse Bradford singing the themes from The Jeffersons, Happy Days, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saved by the Bell, Cheers, All in the Family, The Greatest American Hero (our personal fave) and more. And below, Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris, The Amazing Race’s Phil Keoghan, Girls’Alex Karpovsky and others sing songs from shows like Gilligan’s Island and The Brady Bunch. It’s apples to oranges, but we encourage you to enjoy both masterpieces. Read more…
Full disclosure time: Jimmy Fallon stole my date. OK, it was seven years ago. But it still stings. I took her to a Broadway play and she mysteriously didn’t come back after intermission. I went to the lobby to investigate, only to find her laughing and chatting it up with some dude. Who the hell is this joker!? I tapped him on the shoulder and was then blinded by the brilliantly white smile of Mr. James Fallon. Oh, it’s a very successful SNL joker. He offered his hand in greeting, and I knew then that my date was over. I finished the show solo.
So in honor of Jimmy Fallon’s birthday today, I decided to make a roundup of his most ridiculous costumes through the years. It’s all part of the healing process. I bet you feel really silly now, don’t you Jimmy!? You and your boyish good looks, and hilarious talk show with great guests, and your million dollar salary! Err…ok, fine, I probably would have missed our date to hang out with him, too. From his SNL classics like “The Barry Gibb Talk Show” and “Celebrity Jeopardy” to his uncanny impression of Neil Young on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, all of his craziest outfits are here. So head on down to the gallery below and enjoy!
And Sydney, if you’re reading: How about that second date?
