Harrison Ford has paid tribute to his longtime friend, the late great Peter Mayhew, who was known for playing Han Solo’s towering co-pilot, Chewbacca the Wookiee.
Talking to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Thursday, the Star Wars actor said just a few words about his friend, who passed away on May 3. Ford noted the quiet challenge Mayhew faced playing Chewbacca.
“He was a really sweet man, nice man, and he had a hard time physically. It was really hard for him to do what he did for us, what he did for all of us. And he did it with real dignity and class,” said Ford.
“He was a really neat guy. I miss him.” Read more…

Pete Buttigieg is hoping to smooth his way to the presidency.
The mayor of South Bend dropped into The Tonight Show on Monday night, where he joined Jimmy Fallon for another edition of “Slow Jam the News,” in which he spent his time talking about his platform and what kind of president he’d aim to be.
Of course, the segment was made famous by Barack Obama, who did the slow jamming thing in the final months of his presidency back in 2016.
Buttigieg didn’t just talk over the sounds of a sleazy-sounding synthesizer, he also spoke to Fallon about his ambitions, and the fact that Trump compared Buttigieg to MAD magazine’s Alfred E. Neuman. Read more…

Plunge your hands into a box and try to guess what’s inside it without looking. It’s a truly horrific concept for a game, one that’s generated plenty of fun times on The Tonight Show.
But Jimmy Fallon always gets pretty squeamish playing “Can You Feel It,” as do his guests. On Wednesday, the late night show host invited The Widow star Kate Beckinsale to play, and there was plenty of screaming (mainly on Fallon’s part).
“It’s sticky and wet. It’s a poo! It’s a huge poo!” Beckinsale said of some innocent cinnamon buns.
“I hate this game so much,” Fallon said, hesitantly putting his hands into earthworm-filled dirt. Read more…

Apart from being Ryan Reynolds’ greatest all-time rival, Hugh Jackman is a Guinness World Record holder.
The Missing Link star dropped by The Tonight Show on Monday to trade jackets with Jimmy Fallon and talk world records.
Jackman holds the record for the longest career as a live action Marvel superhero: 16 years 228 days as X-Men‘s Wolverine — he shares the record with Patrick Stewart, who has played Professor Charles Xavier for the exact same amount of days.
But Jackman’s record isn’t the only title he’s tried for, as the star explained he and his brother clocked up many valiant attempts at Guinness glory — one of which is the most coins caught on one’s elbow. Read more…

You know what, Julia Louis-Dreyfus could sell us anything.
But we’re not so sure how she is effective is at selling a lie, however, as exemplified when she stepped into a round of “Box of Lies” with The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon on Thursday.
The Veep star is good fun, but boy, not so convincing when it comes to trying to dupe Fallon into thinking that she’s got a horse with a huge collection of sandals and high heels in front of her. Read more…

Weezer‘s classic 1994 track “Buddy Holly” already threw back to the good ol’ days with its Happy Days-inspired music video.
But Jimmy Fallon took the song even further back in time with his barbershop quartet, The Ragtime Gals, on The Tonight Show.
Fallon always puts a little spin on his ragtime renditions, and Tuesday, the late night show host invited Weezer themselves to join the seven-piece a capella shindig.
“Buddy Holly” works incredibly well here, and sits up there with Fallon’s barbershop versions of Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like” and Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” Read more…

Did Steph Curry’s interviews over the 2019 NBA All-Star weekend seem full of weird turns of phrase to you? It’s all Jimmy Fallon’s fault.
For a segment subbed “Drop It In,” The Tonight Show host had the basketball star slip strange words into his post-game chats, and Curry managed to weave them all in multiple times without breaking a sweat.
The phrases you’re looking for are “Energizer bunny,” “flipping pancakes” and “wham, bam, can of ham,” the latter of which we intend to weave into all conversations from now on. Read more…

We all have secret selves, but you’ve just gotta let ’em shine. We’ve all got actual secrets too, but maybe some of those can stay well and truly buried.
That’s what we’ve learned from a weird song performed by Jimmy Fallon alongside Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star (and heroine of our hearts) Lana Condor.
The unlikely trio time-travelled back to the ol’ high school cafeteria on The Tonight Show for a song dubbed “To All the Me’s I’ve Loved Before,” reminiscent of High School Musical‘s “Stick to the Status Quo.”
Yeah, Cranston makes it brilliantly weird. Read more…

It might seem foolish to challenge Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman in the upcoming DC chapter, to a casual trident throwing challenge. But that didn’t stop Jimmy Fallon.
In the film, Aquaman is a master of the trident, and on The Tonight Show, Momoa absolutely nailed it, like he was casually playing darts in a friend’s basement. Highly impressive.
The target? Arch-villain Ocean Master, of course. Minus 20 points if you hit Nemo. Read more…

Ready for the fastest feet you’ve seen today?
For the latest instalment of his wildly popular “Lip Sync Battle” segment, Fallon invited Saturday Night Live favourite Tiffany Haddish into the arena.
Both kicked off with some solid ’90s nostalgia. Fallon shimmied through Deee-Lite’s 1990 banger “Groove Is in the Heart,” but Haddish absolutely nailed the Lady of Rage’s 1994 track “Afro Puffs.”
The late show host picked Post Malone’s “Psycho,” which seemed to slow the pace, but Fallon picked it up with a few of the rapper’s signature face tattoos. But Haddish went old school for James Brown’s “Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine” with some highly fancy footwork. Read more…

Jimmy Fallon has never been to Olive Garden.
Fortunately he’s in the safe hands of Post Malone, who is a big time fan of the Italian-American chain. The “Rockstar” rapper showed the late show host all the delights of Post Malone-style free breadsticks, which involves taking a bite and putting hunks of butter on it.
In a segment that’s apparently totally not an ad for Olive Garden, Fallon spent most of his time being shocked at how things like breadsticks and salad were free. “How do you guys make money?” he asked.
As per the Hollywood Reporter, when the pair finished filming, they headed over to an Irish pub where Post Malone got involved in a jam night. Sounds like quite the night out. Read more…

Jimmy Fallon’s classroom instrument covers are the stuff of legend, with the likes of the Backstreet Boys and Ed Sheeran giving those mini-xylophones a good tapping.
Joining the fray on Monday night was Shawn Mendes, whose 2016 hit “Treat You Better” just had to be covered by The Roots and Fallon in another edition of the segment.
Mendes, lucky for him, only needs his incredible voice and a set of silver spoons to deliver his performance. He makes it look so dang easy. Read more…

Here’s a fun activity: Get two friends, a Looper app, and make a doo-wop song.
On Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon dragged out live music looping app Loopy to create a doo-wop iPad masterpiece with powerhouse singers Queen Latifah and Kelly Clarkson.
Choosing classic tune “Earth Angel,” originally by ’50s group the Penguins, and popularized by Marvin Berry and The Starlighters in Back to the Future, the trio layer up some sweet, sweet harmonies, then some deep basslines, and a whole lot of bahp-bahps.
It’s damn delightful, and could be a pretty solid activity for your next bored night. Read more…

Justin Bieber is the kind of celebrity who is sure to get swarmed once he’s seen in public.
So in the latest edition of Jimmy Fallon’s photobombing segment, Bieber and the late show host went in disguise to surprise people in New York’s Central Park, ahead of The Tonight Show‘s special outdoor broadcast from the park later that evening.
Despite dancing along to Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” no-one in the segment manages to recognise the pop superstar, until right at the end when they pull their wigs off.
Also, like everyone these days, Bieber is really good at those Fortnite floss dances. As he should be. Read more…

Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t actively seek out Harry Potter memes, but that didn’t stop Jimmy Fallon from throwing a few his way.
The Harry Potter star, who is currently promoting his Broadway run in The Lifespan of a Fact, was a damn good sport on The Tonight Show on Wednesday, offering up genuine enthusiasm for meme after meme.
But one particularly generated a strong grin, the viral video of YouTube personality Kelsey Ellison at MCM London’s ComicCon, stupefying all with a casually fierce dance while dressed up as Hermione Granger.
“That is great. We need to remake the film as a musical,” said Radcliffe. Read more…

Glenn Close was frightening as Cruella de Vil in the 1996 live-action film 101 Dalmatians.
Not these days. Close was covered in puppies on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, thanks to her superior general knowledge skills during another edition of “Pup Quiz.”
Close battled Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard in the segment on Monday night, picking up a whole heap of dang adorable goldendoodles along the way.
And boy, doesn’t she love it. Read more…

Britney Spears joined Jimmy Fallon for a totally ahmazeng instalment of recurring Tonight Show sketch “Ew,” on Thursday.
Reuniting for a sleepover after meeting at camp, Sara (Fallon) and her BFF Abby (Spears) obsessed over horses and custom mermaid pillows, traded Throwback Thursday Instagram photos, and nailed Fashion Freeze.
There’s a perfect “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman” throwback, plus, they totally gave mad love to Steve Carell in here, especially for his work in Dahspackabal Mah Thrah. Read more…

Jimmy Fallon and Tom Cruise have done their fair share of silly skits on The Tonight Show over the years. And their newly made-up Mission: Impossible scene is just as harebrained.
In a segment on Monday night’s show, Fallon and Cruise acted out a dramatic spy movie scene they’d written together playing the “Mad Lib” game. Adhering to the segment rules, Cruise answers Fallon’s random questions, and then the two use them as dialogue in a made-up movie scene.
Cruise’s answers are quite bizarre — his response to a hypothetical spider crawling up his leg was a cool “come here, darling,” — so make for a pretty strange scene. But it’s worth watching just for the pair to try and keep a straight face during their fictional train ride. Read more…

For the most part, Jimmy Fallon has tried to avoid being political on The Tonight Show. But he can’t avoid it when the politics come to him.
Following a tweet by Trump which told the late night show host to “be a man,” Fallon responded to the furore in the opening monologue of his show on Monday night.
“When I saw that Trump had insulted me on Twitter, I was going to tweet back immediately, but I had more important things to do,” Fallon joked. “Then I thought, wait, shouldn’t he have more important things to do? What are you doing? You’re the president. Why are you tweeting at me?”
Of course, Fallon isn’t the only late night show host that’s been in Trump’s firing line. Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert also received scorn from the president at a rally on Monday. Read more…

World-famous musicians busking on the subway is totally a Jimmy Fallon thing now.
Joining the likes of Maroon 5 and Miley Cyrus in a (not so) random act of singing was pop queen Christina Aguilera, who hid under a floppy hat and sunglasses to sing a cover of Aretha Franklin’s “Think” at the 50th Street station in New York City.
Of course, what would a star be without the hits: Aguilera also performed an acoustic version of “Fighter” to a very enthusiastic crowd, and lots of cowbell from Fallon. Read more…

Yes, they’re really playing music on Nintendo’s Labo.
Specifically Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, who joined Ariana Grande to play her newest single “No Tears Left To Cry” on The Tonight Show Monday night.
Fallon told IGN he and the band worked with Nintendo to create guitars and other instruments out of cardboard.
“It was totally bizarre and such a gamble,” he said. “I didn’t know if it was going to sound good, but Ariana is always down to try something fun and different. Anyone can do what we did really, it just takes time. Whatever you dream of, you can make it.” Read more…

Jimmy Fallon will join March for Our Lives, a student-led protest for school safety and gun control, on March 24 in Washington, D.C.
The Tonight Show host addressed the shooting at Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Monday night, in the first episode of the show since the tragic event.
Fallon took a moment to acknowledge those lost, and also the students who survived the shooting. “What they had to live through, and what they have to live with, is something that I can’t even imagine,” he said.
Fallon described the recent actions of these students, including the organisation of the march “unbelievable,” saying, “They’re speaking out with more guts, passion, conviction and common sense than most adults … They’re creating change. This is a real revolution.” Read more…

We already knew that Jimmy Fallon doesn’t hold back when it comes to addressing serious, critical issues.
But this time, in the aftermath of the horrific events of this past weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, he might have delivered his most powerful, politically charged statement yet.
“What happened over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, was just disgusting. I was watching the news like everyone else, and you’re seeing Nazi flags and torches and white supremacists, and I was sick to my stomach,” he said, tears welling in his eyes. Read more…

Those vaguely country and western disguises meant to conceal Miley Cyrus and Jimmy Fallon might not have been that effective, but then again, when would you ever get to see these two busk in a subway station?
The pair performed Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” and Cyrus’ “Party In The U.S.A.” in New York City’s 50th Street station, pulling a crowd who knew exactly what was going on.
Still pretty cool though. Read more…

Um, does the Irwin family have access to some kind of underground cloning technology? Because Robert Irwin, the late Steve Irwin’s son, is the spitting image of his dad down to the khaki shorts and endless enthusiasm.
A conservationist and TV personality, Steve died in 2006 after being struck by a stingray barb, but he clearly passed his media chops onto his son. The 13-year-old appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, and Fallon couldn’t get over the similarity. “It’s so cool to see you like this, you’re actually your Dad,” he said.
Of course, the Irwins have not been out of the spotlight — Robert has appeared on Wild But True on Discovery Kids, among other shows. Still, handling an African dwarf crocodile, an armadillo, a boa and a sloth with ease, Robert has the title of Crocodile Hunter 2.0 on lock. Read more…

Falling somewhere between charades and the mannequin challenge, the brains behind The Tonight Show have come up with a new game for Jimmy Fallon and his guests to play: Humannequins.
Queen Latifah, Fred Armisen, Flaming Lips lead singer Wayne Coyne and Fallon himself got to awkwardly move each other’s body parts around in an attempt to depict the people, movie or thing written on their clue. It was surprisingly delightful watching Fallon force Armisen to his knees in an attempt to stage a “marriage proposal.”
Humannequins could just be the next hilarious thing to make it into your own game night. Read more…
