Of course, the real joke of 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon's adoration for translating current rap and hip hop songs into Broadway versions is simple, it's in the text. It's current songs made into Broadway versions. Easy! But the difference between an okay "Broadway covers" sketch and a great one is how much Fallon and his chosen guest sell it.
No, you have not gone crazy--Oprah Winfrey and Jimmy Fallon never starred in a soap opera, certainly not one together--but let's not let that small factoid get in the way of a good (if wholly imaginary and also extremely weird) sketch.
Comedian/actor/writer/director Chris Rock has already proven that he can do just about everything -- and do it pretty well, if his upcoming feature 'Top Five' is any indication -- but the funny man almost had another major career move bulleted on his resume. Before Rock made it big as an actor, he dabbled in the disc jockey arts, deeming his own skills to be "nice!" After the DJing came a deal for a rap record, which was made, but never released, a weird bit of trivia that Rock shared with Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show' last night.
Often, particularly colorful characters take to the various late shows to flex the full range of their unique spirit, just for funsies. Joaquin Phoenix looked to be going down that precise path on last night's 'Late Show,' actively imitating himself learning yoga, calling his more personal bits "Julio Igelasias," and just generally having a good time. Host David Letterman looked nervous, but Phoenix looked relaxed, and that might be why Phoenix's good-time appearance took a serious turn when the 'Inherent Vice' star announced his engagement on air.
'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon is, perhaps, not quite ready to take to the skies in service to the mythos and magic of a Peter Pan tale, but when star Allison Williams asks him to do it, he kind of can't say no. After all, Williams is about to go high-flying on live television for an all-new 'Peter Pan,' the least Fallon can do is try it for a bit within the safety of his own studio.
"Tyler is a well-known remote control enthusiast." Did you know that about Tyler Perry? You didn't? Well, Jimmy Fallon sure did, but that didn't stop the 'Tonight Show' host from attempting -- again! -- to best the Hollywood multi-hyphenate in yet another remote-controlled challenge.
Sofia Vergara knew exactly what she was doing the second she took the 'Tonight Show' stage last night. The 'Modern Family' star was hellbent on one thing: playing one of host Jimmy Fallon's favorite games (and we know how much Fallon loves games) and using it to totally turn the tables on him. You like Lip Flip, huh, Jimmy? Right? You don't like it as much as Sofia does.
Matthew McConaughey may not be back for more super-sized 'Magic Mike 2' action, as the head honcho from the original feature won't be returning for whatever delights its sequel holds for us, but the film is lining up a very, ahem, eclectic cast so far.
Seth Meyers has been taking a little bit of time off from 'Late Night' to prep for a very big, very primetime gig as host of the 2014 Emmys. He's even had to temporarily decamp to Los Angeles to get ready for the show, a trip that apparently involved some very fraught air travel. Turns out, when you're hosting the Emmys, you need TV props, and most of our most lauded shows involve items that, well, just aren't air travel friendly.
Perhaps this time we will let "our hero" Godzilla get some actual rest before dispatching him to battle the world's other major MUTOs? Is that too much to ask? We've known for months that Legendary is eager to stay in the 'Godzilla' business after the success of this summer's awesome Gareth Edwards' feature film -- after all, they did announce a sequel to the film within days of it hitting the big screen -- but there have been plenty of lingering questions as to when that would happen and who (or what) we could expect to see in the next feature.
Have you ever watched the CBS series 'Under the Dome'? No? It's okay, because 'Late Show' host David Letterman has, and he's more than ready, willing, and able to explain the dramatic series to his audience. Letterman is hip to the real plights inside the series -- sometimes, people want to leave, but they can't, because the dome. The
