We know that Ice-T is a rapper and actor, but did you know he also does voiceovers for cartoons? I didn’t know that either until Jimmy Fallon showed some clips of his work on The Tonight Show yesterday. Ice-T was on The Care Bears, The Smurfs and Dora the Explorer. The last one is the best one of the three, not only cause it is from a week ago but because it is so true. You just have to see it to believe it.
I know Ice-T has his talk show with his wife Coco starting on Monday, but I wish someone would give him an animated series of his own. You know Adult Swim, it would be a great companion with The Mike Tyson Mysteries.
Danny DeVito was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged him to a game of Inflatable Flip Cup. Basically the two men wore inflatable suits, downed a cup of beer and then flipped over the cup. The first player to successfully do that with all of the cups won the game.
That is the boring part. The fun part is that the two men look like Violet Beauregarde when she chewed on on Willy Wonka’s 3-Course Gum in his Chocolate Factory. It appears that the NBC late host got the blueberry pie and the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia patriarch got the cherry one. Don’t they look like they are waiting for the Oompa Loompas to take them to the juicing room and be squeezed before they explode? Although, by the looks of Devito’s expression, it looks like he already exploded!
Tom Cruise is on The Tonight Show tonight and Jimmy Fallon challenged him to a Lip Sync Battle. Cruise started it off with The Weeknd’s Can’t Feel My Face. The NBC late night host showed us that he has moves like Jagger as he mouthed The Rolling Stones’ Undercover of the Night. Joel Goodsen shocked Fallon by side sliding his way over to the mic to Bob Seger’s Old Time Rock’n’Roll. Did he do it? Nope, he did the coming of age duet, Meat Loaf’s Paradise in the Dashboard Light. That wasn’t the last duet of that night, Fallon ended the battle with The Righteous Brothers’ You’ve Lost that Loving Feeling.
So who was the top gun in this mission impossible? Maveric of course!
BTW when did Cruise become a brunette Owen Wilson?
When I read that Judd Apatow was doing stand up for the first time since he was 24 years old on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, I was expecting it to be painfully bad. In fact, I had the headline ready for it. It was going to read that Judd Apatow’s standup is as funny as his movies. In other words, if you like his movies you will think it is funny. If not, you would hate it like I hate his movies.
Well, I was pleasantly surprised by how funny he is. It starts out slower with him talking about his daughters not finding him funny and him being the only man in a house full of beautiful women. Then the pace picks up when he jokes about Bill Cosby. Not only does he nail his impression of the disgraced star, his take on it had me laughing out loud.
Maybe Apatow should take a break from making movies and hit the road doing standup. I would actually pay to see that.
Paul Rudd got to work with Michael Douglas in Ant-Man, and the Clueless actor told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that he decided he wanted to Basic Instinct the legend.
Rudd positioned himself so that his T-shirt covered his underwear covered privates, but something went wrong. His boxers rammed everything up, ruining his perfect plan. So he kept trying to move everything down, but as he did, it looked like he was playing with his ant-man. Well Douglas saw what was happening, and asked his co-star, “Are you f*cking a pervert?” Rudd then explained what he was doing, and Douglas seemed OK with it.
I guess you could say it was more like a Fatal Attraction as compared to a Basic Instinct.
Yesterday was Jimmy Fallon’s first show since his accident and he explained what happened. Basically, he got everyone who watched the show to look up ring aversion and now people all over the country are grossed out.
Thankfully, he is better now even though we are not.
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?
