Jimmy Fallon and Mike Myers Dance It Up

Perhaps it was inevitable that these two Saturday Night Live alums would one day get together and participate in a hilarious dance-off. After all, Jimmy Fallon dances on his show frequently—and Mike Myers is known for playing Austin Powers, a character who was never afraid to bust a move. Luckily for loyal fans, this fateful day finally came. And the two funny guys decided to make a game out of it.

 

Called Dice Dance Off, the game demanded that each man wear a dancing outfit that represented his country. Myers was outfitted in a red jogging suit to represent Canada, while Fallon sported a bodacious blue for the United States. Both wore hilarious headbands and were forced to roll huge dice that would tell them the name of a dance that they would have to create on the spot. Rolling first, Mike received a challenge called Perpetual Motion, then burst into a routine that seemed to combine dances from the sixties and eighties.

 

When Jimmy rolled, his request was a bit more challenging. Called Which Pocket Did I Put My Keys In, this dance definitely made Fallon step it up. Fallon’s frenetic response dance was very funny and almost made him look as though he had fleas. The dances that followed included Hot Poutine, Windy Plastic Bag and The Slip N Slide. In the end, it was a dance duet between the two men that brought the audience to their feet for a rousing standing ovation.

Jimmy Fallon Loses Round Of “Would You Rather” To Kevin Hart And Really Eats A Cricket

We suppose if he were on an episode of “Survivor,” he might just have to do that, considering the food choices might not be plentiful.

 

However, Jimmy Fallon took one for the team, and he wasn’t marooned on some island far, far away. “The Tonight Show” host was at the famous NBC Studio 6-B in the Comcast Building at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. It was there, that the charming late night TV host cringed and threw a live cricket into his mouth and ate it.

 

Fallon’s hilarious guest was the very funny Kevin Hart, and they decided to play a game of “Would You Rather.” A game show host suggests to the players random scenarios. Then, Fallon and Hart would guess which ones the audience would rather chose. They have been polled ahead of time.

 

For example, Would you rather have a clone of yourself or a dog that could talk?

 

Kevin Hart answered the question correctly, saying that the audience would rather have a dog that could talk.

 

Jimmy Fallon lost the game, so he had to go the the loser’s table. He could choose his punishment, and both were nasty things. Fallon could select to hold a large handful of worms for 10 seconds or eat a cricket. He chose the latter.

 

The audience went wild, but Hart wouldn’t join him for the insect snack. Jimmy Fallon really chewed it, winced and then swallowed the cricket, showing his tongue afterward to the howling audience.

 

Reaction to Jimmy Fallon Hosting Golden Globes Is Mixed

Jimmy Fallon has a reputation for being one of the nicest guys in show business. “The Tonight Show” has been known as a place that stars can go when they want to avoid the tough questions. That tradition was started by Jay Leno and it has continued with Fallon. Being a nice guy and conducting softball interviews might work for Fallon in late night. However, people are much more demanding when it comes to the people chosen to host prestigious awards shows. Ricky Gervais gained legions of fans from the occasions he hosted the Golden Globes. He pulled no punches and brutally roasted many celebrities in the audience. Fallon is not that type of guy and he never will be.

 

Jimmy Fallon’s hosting performance at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards is receiving very mixed reviews. Some people are praising his positivity. However, there are just as many people criticizing him for not being edgy and failing to go after Donald Trump to any great degree. Fallon was someone who NBC wanted to give a shot to because it allows them to promote the star of their late night lineup. It remains to be seen if Fallon will receive any more hosting gigs of this magnitude. Some people in the media joked that the phone of Ricky Gervais must be ringing off the hook because of Fallon’s poor showing.

 

It wouldn’t be surprising if Fallon gets another shot to host a big awards show. It might not be the Golden Globes. However, people in Hollywood genuinely like him and he is not threatening. Those qualities should definitely count for something. Overall, Fallon made the most of his abilities. He was not helped by a teleprompter that broke down when he was reading from it. Critics believe that he should have used jokes with more bite.

 

 

 

Michelle Obama Says Goodbye to Jimmy Fallon

As the Obama presidency is coming to an end, celebrities and regular people alike are lining up to say goodbye to the first family. President Obama threw a going away party at the White House on January 6, 2017. Many famous friends of the outgoing president showed up for the festivities, including Jerry Seinfeld, John Legend, Solange Knowles, Nick Jonas, Meryl Streep, and George Clooney.

 

Another emotional farewell took place on the Jimmy Fallon show on Wednesday, January 11. First Lady Michelle Obama dropped by the studio for her final appearance during her husband’s tenure as president. The send off was full of tears and laughter, as she said goodbye to some of her fans and talked about her plans for life after the White House.

 

During one emotional segment, Obama surprised people recording thank you messages to her. The fans were touched by her sudden appearance and happy for a chance to say thanks in person. Many noted that she was an inspiration to them, giving them the confidence to chase their dreams.

 

In the interview portion of the segment, Michelle Obama talked about a wide range of subjects. She joined Jimmy in penning a few thank you notes to her husband’s administration. Fallon thanked the first lady for putting a new twist on the phrase “the right to bear arms,” while she thanked her husband for his tenure in office.

 

She also discussed what she plans to do as a private citizen. Michelle Obama has been a staunch supporter of children’s education efforts throughout the presidency, and she told Jimmy that she intends to continue to support such initiatives. She specifically mentioned the Let’s Move and Reach Higher program. As a final point, Obama stressed the importance of decency in politics, and said she wishes the incoming administration well.

 

 

Best Friends Jimmy Fallon and Viola Davis

There’s no doubt that Jimmy Fallon has established a reputation for getting celebrities to play some very wacky games with him. And this week was certainly no exception. Digging into the “Best Friend’s Box”, Jimmy and Viola had to answer questions about each other. This game was all about predicting what the other person would say. Obviously, the person who got the most answers correct was the winner.

 

It started off innocently enough, with a question regarding superheroes. Ever the consummate actress, Viola seemed to take the challenge very seriously. When their first question and response session was entirely off base, they went to the next question. This one was about Christmas movies and, once again, the two entertainers were not on the same page. While Viola chose A Christmas Carol, Jimmy went with It’s a Wonderful Life. At this point, it seemed as if the two would never get in sync.

 

As the jazzy music played, the suspense ramped up for the last question. However, it was all for naught, as the two once again missed each other’s answers by a mile. Still, it was fun to see the talented actress let loose, as she is usually known for playing very dramatic roles. After this impossible game, the rest of the interview seemed like it was a breeze. Davis, who just won a Golden Globe for her mesmerizing performance in Fences, should celebrate her success and become a late-night fixture as much as she can in the coming weeks.

 

Bryan Cranston and Jimmy Fallon Discuss Holiday Trends

On a recent episode of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon and Bryan Cranston got together to discuss which holiday trends should be upheld—and which need to fall by the wayside as 2017 rapidly approaches. Fallon referred to the game as “Cranst In or Cranst Out” and the objective of the game was for Bryan Cranston to rapidly identify the traditions he felt were best. During rapid-fire questioning by the perky Fallon, Cranston revealed that he is not a fan of plastic Christmas trees, but that he does enjoy Christmas carols.

 

As the audience egged them on, Fallon and Cranston then discussed the possible merits of eggnog itself. While Cranston was unenthusiastic, Fallon surveyed the audience to see what they thought. Cranston seemed genuinely surprised by the number of people rooting for eggnog, and then Fallon went on to describe a Cuban Christmas drink that he believed Cranston would have found more suitable.

 

For many viewers, it is always interesting to see Cranston on stage—and not in his Walter White mode. This appearance on Fallon’s show was no exception, highlighting Cranston’s unbelievable versatility and calm, cool demeanor. With a shiny new nomination for a Golden Globe and a hilarious appearance on Saturday Night Live, it would appear that Cranston is showing no signs of slowing down after Breaking Bad.

 

Jimmy Fallon Is No Longer the King of YouTube

Jimmy Fallon has dominated the late night ratings since he took over the “Tonight Show” from Jay Leno. It has not even been a fair contest. The other late night shows have not come close to threatening Fallon’s title as the current king of late night. However, there is a place where Fallon’s reign has officially come to an end, at least for the time being. One of the places where Fallon has attracted a loyal legion of followers is on YouTube. The current crop of late night hosts have used YouTube to their advantage in a way that old schoolers Leno and Letterman never did. In fact, an enormous amount of people never watch the late night shows when they are broadcast on TV. These people watch the clips that are posted on YouTube when they are at work the next day. Fallon was the first late night host to see the value of posting clips on YouTube.

 

Fallon has been the most watched late night host on YouTube since he became the “Tonight Show” host. However, the 2016 election knocked Fallon from this lofty position. The unlikely pair of Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah were both watched more on YouTube in 2016. Obviously, the 2016 election was the primary reason for this development. Fallon tends to stay far away from anything that is even the slightest bit controversial. On the other hand, Colbert and Noah covered the election very closely. This gave their videos a large spike in viewing during the election season.

Jimmy Fallon Tries Out New Nintendo Games On “Late Night”

Late night star Jimmy Fallon just got the opportunity to try out two of Nintendo’s hottest games on a recent airing of the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. In addition to playing a few games, Fallon also got the chance to meet Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of some of the greatest games in Nintendo’s long history.

 

Reggie Fils-Aime, the head of Nintendo’s American branch, first told Fallon that “Super Mario Run” will be the first time the famous Italian plumber makes an appearance on mobile devices. Fils-Aime went on to say there are three modes to this game, including “World’s Tour,” “Kingdom Builder,” and “Toad Rally.”

 

Before Fallon started playing, Fils-Aime pointed out Miyamoto in the audience. Fallon, who is a huge video game fan, immediately started bowing towards Miyamoto and said he is Miyamoto’s “biggest fan.”

 

Fallon was able to get quite a few special coins and the invincibility star while playing one level of “World’s Tour.” After he made it successfully to the end of the level, Miyamoto gave Fallon a big thumb’s up.

 

After playing “Super Mario Run,” Fils-Aime said he had one more surprise for Fallon. Fils-Aime told Fallon he could play “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” on the yet to be released Nintendo Switch device.

 

After showing off a bit of the game on the big screen, Fils-Aime took a mobile unit out of the Nintendo Switch and allowed Fallon to play for a bit. Gamers, Fils-Aime said, will be able to play both at home or on the mobile Switch device.

 

The Nintendo Switch will be released in March of 2017.

Jimmy Fallon and Kevin Hart Tour a Haunted Manor

Jimmy Fallon recently went through a haunted house on his show with one of his favorite friends, Kevin Hart. The two went through one of the scariest haunted houses in New York, which is called Blood Manor.

 

At the beginning of the clim on Jimmy’s show, Jimmy voiced his concern about going through Blood Manor because he was fairly scared. He said that he was seriously scared. Before, both Kevin Hart and Jimmy Fallon had gone on a roller coaster together and filmed themselves while on the ride. It was a great clip that got lots of laughs and likes, so the pair thought they would try their hand at making funny videos again and went for the scary haunted house tour. Jimmy said that they decided on this video because it’s getting close to Halloween.

 

Both of the men wore cameras on harnesses on their chests, but there was also a film crew on site to film both of them. At first, both of them were fairly tentative, but soon, they were screaming and freaking out when villains and monsters started to jump out at them.

 

In one of the rooms, there was no light and an infrared camera filmed them while creepy monsters popped out at them. In another room that had an ultra red glow, they met with a monster on a table and joked with him. Jimmy and Kevin went through various other rooms of the haunted manor before finally ending the tour with lots of laughs.
