Watch Jimmy Fallon Put Tape All Over Katie Holmes’ Face

In a game of "say anything"

Whatever you think about Katie Holmes’ acting skills, one thing is certain: she can’t keep up with Jimmy Fallon on improvisation.

The actress paid a visit to The Tonight Show on Thursday, where she was invited to play a game of “say anything.” She and Fallon took turns saying a word, any word, so long as it hadn’t previously been said. Anytime someone stumbled, the other person got to put a piece of tape on their face. Fallon tried to make Holmes feel a little better about herself between rounds, saying, “Even with that on your face, you still look beautiful.”

“I know,” Holmes replied. “But we have to concentrate.”

Watch Judd Apatow Slam Bill Cosby During Tonight Show Stand-Up Set

"I think we do have to stand up for the women and say that we believe you"

Judd Apatow brought his crusade against Bill Cosby to Monday’s edition of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, blasting the 78-year-old during a stand-up set on the late-night show.

“Cosby is still out on the road. Isn’t that weird? He’s, like, doing stand-up? What do you think his act is like? Do you think he’s still talking about it?” Apatow said, before slipping into an impersonation of the comic. “Do you think he says, ‘Have you ever been in trouble with the wife? Did you ever get into the doghouse with the wife over something that you did?’”

More than 40 women have accused Cosby of sexual assault, though he has never been charged with a crime. Last weekend, the New York Times released a deposition of Cosby from a 2005 lawsuit filed by Andrea Constand, a Temple University employee who claimed she was drugged and molested by Cosby. In the deposition, Cosby admitted to giving her drugs, but said the sex was consensual. (“I walk her out. She does not look angry. She does not say to me, don’t ever do that again,” he said in the deposition. “She doesn’t walk out with an attitude of a huff, because I think I’m a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them.”)

Apatow alluded to the media coverage around Cosby in his stand-up routine, imagining a situation where Cosby’s wife, Camille Cosby, would confront the comic about an article.

“She says to me, ‘What is this in the paper about the raping, the drugging and the women?’” Apatow said in his Cosby voice. “And I said, ‘Do you like your life? Do you like the house, the jet? Then have a cappuccino and shut the [eff] up.’”

Apatow has been one of Cosby’s most vocal critics, frequently tweeting and commenting about the accusations. After excerpts from the 2005 deposition were released in June, Apatow called out Camille Cosby and former Cosby Show co-star Phylicia Rashad, who had previously supported Cosby, to “stand with the victims and not their attacker.”

Speaking to the TODAY show this month, Apatow explained why he has been so vigorous in his takedown of Cosby.

“I just kept noticing that no one else was saying that this was a bad thing,” Apatow said. “I would have loved to not talk about it. It’s incredibly sad. It’s one of the most tragic things that’s happened in our business, and I think we do have to stand up for the women and say that we believe you.”

Watch New Daily Show Host Trevor Noah Explain How the Election Is Like Game of Thrones

"We need a map to show you who goes where, and how: The House of Bush!"

Trevor Noah, the comedian set to take over The Daily Show in September, is wasting no time when it comes to getting his own comic sensibility out there. In an appearance on The Tonight Show Friday night, the South African comic described the presidential election as akin to Game of Thrones: “We need a map to show you who goes where, and how: The House of Bush!”

As for what outgoing Daily Show host Jon Stewart told him about taking on the fake-news stalwart: “Jon has some great advice and some of it, I don’t understand, but I just nod. [….] The most important thing he said was, ‘Go out there and have fun. Do the best show that you feel you can do and the show that you feel needs to be done.'”

See What Professor Snape Sounds Like After Inhaling Helium

It'll change your entire perception of Defense Against the Dark Arts

Professor Snape, a.k.a. Alan Rickman, struck fear in the hearts of Hogwarts’ students in the Harry Potter films, but there’s nothing more magical than hearing Rickman’s voice influenced by several mouthfuls of helium.

Back in 2013, Jimmy Fallon and Benedict Cumberbatch did their very best impressions of the actor during what they called a “Rickman-Off.” So, when Rickman himself appeared as a guest on The Tonight Show on Wednesday night, he was ready to confront Fallon – armed with two “truth-telling” helium-filled balloons.

“This is really like a James Bond show, this really is,” Fallon said. “I’m very sorry you were offended, I’m very sorry. And welcome to the show.”

The two laughed their way through the remainder of the interview, with Fallon finally getting the actor to say “Harry Potter” after he’d taken a few puffs from his helium balloon.

Watch Jeb Bush Slow Jam the News With Jimmy Fallon

The latest Bush to run for president stopped by The Tonight Show

Forget Iowa and New Hampshire — the hottest spot on the campaign trail is late-night television.

Jeb Bush, who announced he was running for president on Monday, stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show to slow jam the news — something you may recall President Obama did back in 2012. While the “news” in this case wasn’t recent headlines but a brief summary of Bush’s formal campaign announcement and select accomplishments, Fallon’s suggestive commentary made the segment something you definitely haven’t heard before.

“He’s got lots of experience down south,” Fallon joked. “He came from Texas where everything is bigger. He turned Florida from a limp peninsula into a virile member of the U.S. economy.”

See the full video below, as well as Fallon’s interview with Bush, where the presidential hopeful talks about how he met his wife:

Watch Aziz Ansari and Jimmy Fallon Read Awkward Texts from Guys

"It was a horror to meet you"

Aziz Ansari and Jimmy Fallon want guys who send awkward texts to know they’re not alone.

With the release of his book Modern Romance, Ansari has become a bit of a love guru. And during an appearance on the Tonight Show, Ansari and Fallon read some “texty” messages from guys attempting to express their interest in women they’d met—all of which went horribly wrong.

From too-long messages to terrifying typos, their foray into some men’s first “textual experience” was basically a crash course in texts not to send. Here’s the full clip:

Watch Triple Crown Jockey Victor Espinoza Race Jimmy Fallon on Mini-Motorcyles

They called it the Quadruple Crown

Victor Espinoza, the jockey who rode American Pharoah to his Triple Crown victory, maybe deserves a break from competition. However, Jimmy Fallon made Espinoza race again on The Tonight Show Monday, challenging the jockey to a race on mini-motorcycles, which he dubbed the “Quadruple Crown.”

The course, which was intended to represent each leg of the actual Triple Crown, featured some women in Kentucky Derby-esque hats, Preakness-type mud throwing and Belmont bookies. Espinoza took an early wrong turn, but still emerged the winner.

Watch Jamie Foxx Play Wheel of Musical Impressions With Jimmy Fallon

His take on Jennifer Hudson singing "On Top Of Spaghetti" is truly something


Jimmy Fallon made the most of having a multi-hyphenate talent on his show when actor-singer-comedian Jamie Foxx stopped by The Tonight Show Tuesday night. Fallon challenged Foxx to a game called “Wheel of Musical Impressions,” where each person is assigned a random singer and nontraditional song at the push of a button.

Foxx started strong with his version of Mick Jagger singing The Lion King‘s “Hakuna Matata,” complete with, ahem, moves like Jagger. Fallon came back by giving Barney the Purple Dinosaur’s “I Love You” the Bee Gees treatment.

But Foxx won the night with his impressive takes on John Legend singing the Toys ‘R’ Us theme song and Jennifer Hudson warbling “On Top Of Spaghetti,” which must be heard to be believed.
