Jimmy Fallon had to cancel tonight’s taping of The Tonight Show because he injured his hand. The show’s Twitter account says that he will be OK, but TMZ made it sound so much worse. They reported that he spent the night on the town and the morning in the ICU.
Hopefully he will be better soon and back to work on Monday with a funny story how it happened.
UPDATE: According to a source, the hand injury required minor surgery.
UPDATE 2: Jimmy Fallon Tweeted an update with his good hand and said, “Tripped and caught my fall (good thing)! Ring caught on side of table almost ripped my finger off (bad thing). #drugged #blessed” Then he added that he is doing well and thanked everyone for the good wishes.
Jimmy Fallon is the swellest guy in late night television, and that means you rarely ever hear him tell a dirty joke. Well, yesterday on The Tonight Show, he told not one but two naughty jokes.
The NBC late night host played Brainstorm with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Basically The Terminator would say a word or phrase, and Jimmy would go into his brain and tell us what he meant. There were a lot laughs at the beginning of their segment, but towards the end is when it got really good. When Arnuld said, “On top of old smokey,” Fallon replied with, “Where did Willie Nelson’s wife spend their honeymoon.” That was really risky for him, but he topped that one better than Willie Nelson’s wife topped Old Smokey on their honeymoon. Last up was “Die Hard,” to which Jimmy said, “What happens if you overdose on Viagra.”
I like this side of him and I hope we see it more often!
Yesterday on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon asked Channing Tatum to do some scenes with him from Magic Mike. Not the scenes that you and I know, but ones that were written by elementary school students who only knew the title of the movie. Let’s just say except for the first one, they are very much different than the one that we know. If you think of the first reimagining of MM as sexual innuendos, then it is a lot like the first movie.
You want to know what the scariest thing about it all? All three of them were written better than movie. There I said it, I hated Magic Mike. I can’t believe people liked it. Not enough stripping and too much of that love story that no one was rooting for.
Seth MacFarlane was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged him to a game of Wheel of Impressions. Basically the two of them hit a button to find out which celebrity voice they would have to impersonate and what topic they would be talking about as that person. Obviously, Seth MacFarlane nailed every voice because he is an impression wonder. His first one was Liam Neeson, his last one was Ray Romano and his best one was Bobcat Goldthwait. If you closed your eyes you could actually picture the comedian with his long red scraggly hair harassing the barrister at Starbucks. I wish he Bobcat would bring back his infamous persona.
BTW someone Tweeted, “Thanks @jimmyfallon … #googled @bcgoldthwait so I could appreciate @SethMacFarlane’s impression! #SpotOn”. To which Bobcat Tweeted back, “I’m not sure which part of this I find more depressing.” Poor Bobcat!
Colin Farrell was a guest on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged him to a game of True Confessions. Basically Farrell, Fallon and Vince Vaughn were all given two envelopes, one was filled with a truth about the person and the other one contained a lie. Then after they read the contents the other two got to question them for :60 seconds. When they were done, the other two players had to guess if the other one was telling the truth or a lie.
Farrell went first, and his envelope said, “When I was a late teen I got brought in for questioning as a suspect in an attempted murder.” As they were questioning him, he admitted that when the cops showed a sketch of the suspect he thought the guy looked at him. Then he realized he had a blackout the night of the crime, and he started to wonder if he was the one who did it.
So did he do it? No, as he explained, “Thankfully a friend of mine kept a journal and that particular night and at that particular time we were at a party on the other side of town doing ecstasy.” In other words, he had committed a crime, just not the one he was brought in for.
Then it was time for Jimmy Fallon’s confession and he got his head stuck in a fence when he was kid. Explains a lot, no?
Amanda Seyfried loves her dog so much, she even gave Finn his own Twitter account. So when she pranked Mark Wahlberg on the set of Ted 2, he knew exactly how to get back at her. He took her dog according to what she told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.
One day, after a long day of filming, she got back to her trailer and the door was open. When she went inside her beloved pooch was gone. She went around looking for her best friend and no one knew where he went. That was until she asked Marky Mark, who admitted her took the pup as a prank. When she finally got Finn back, he was enjoying some chicken. Don’t worry about the dog, he was being treated very well during his dognapping. If I was going to worry about anyone it would be Mark Wahlberg because you know she is going to get him back!
Chita Rivera was a guest on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon asked her to teach him some dance moves. She agreed and decided to show him some Fosse. It was a little too confusing for him, so he told her he needed some code words when she switched things up. It started off simple enough, then it changed after she told him to slap his knees because the next body parts were a$$ and t!ts. After A Chorus Line we learned it’s OK to sing about t!ts and a$$, but I guess Fallon didn’t get that memo because he blushed when the Broadway legend said them.
Too bad she didn’t star in A Chorus Line because imagine if she taught him the dance to Dance Ten, Looks Three? All 4 cheeks of his would be redder than Rudolph’s nose on Christmas Eve!
BTW since it’s Friday I think we should all have Dance Ten, Looks Three aka T!ts and A$$ stuck in our heads, so listen to it below and try not to do that dance when you sing it.
Tonight at 11:35p on CBS, David Letterman is saying goodbye to late night after 33 years, a third of a century. Not only has he influenced many people, he has been a big part of all of the remaining talk show hosts’ lives. Jimmy Kimmel was obsessed with him since he was a teenager. Conan O’Brien would still not be on the air had Letterman not come on to Late Night to save it. Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Fallon were guests on his show when they were starting out. Finally, Seth Meyers wouldn’t have a show if Jay Leno didn’t screw Letterman out of The Tonight Show.
So in the last few days, all of the above took time out of their shows to rightfully salute their hero. So watch them pay tribute to the man who they all have to thank for their jobs. Without him Kimmel would still be doing radio, Conan would be writing for The Simpsons, Fallon would be doing unwatchable movies, Ellen would have another sitcom and Meyers would still be on Saturday Night Live. Come to think of it… Joking, they are all better when they are!
Jimmy Fallon has done some really funny bits on The Tonight Show and Late Night, but, in my opinion, his funniest bit came yesterday with Bono. Back in November, U2 was supposed to play the NBC late night show for a week, but Bono got into a bicycle accident and broke his arm. Therefor, the band had to cancel their appearances on the show.
Now, almost 6 months later, the band returned to the show. They couldn’t return without making fun of Bono’s accident, so they did. What happens next, had me laughing the hardest I’ve laughed since I saw Meet Joe Black. Press play and you will understand why.
Not only did they do this segment, but the Irish band actually played a NYC City Subway stop. I would have loved to have been there to hear that because the acoustics down there must’ve been phenomenal. I saw them at the Philips Arena in Atlanta and they sounded like crap. Never go to a concert in that piece of sh!t arena.
Today is hump day, and I have some news that will help you boys get through the day. Yesterday, while playing a game of Catchphrase on The Tonight Show, Sofia Vergara admitted she sleeps in the nude in order to get Jimmy Fallon to guess the phrase birthday suit. Can you believe he didn’t get it? Well, probably because he was too busy picturing her sleeping without any clothes on to get any words to form in his head. If he wasn’t doing it, I am sure half of his TV audience was doing it for him.
