The Tonight Show had a bit of an 80s workout makeover when Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and host Jimmy Fallon dressed up like a fake, albeit colorful, workout duo.

“About a year ago I found this old VHS tape that had a bunch of clips of this fitness duo called The Fungo Brothers,” Johnson said of his secret workout weapon.

Johnson was promoting his latest movie, Hercules, out Friday.

Brian Williams’ Latest, Greatest Rap: ‘Baby Got Back’

It's probably his finest work yet

+ READ ARTICLE

Over the half-decade he’s served as a television talk-show host — first on Late Night and now on The Tonight Show — Jimmy Fallon has introduced a new generation to old-school hip-hop by giving the genre an unlikely mouthpiece: Brian Williams, the NBC Nightly News anchor who otherwise spends his time covering presidential elections and natural disasters.

By means of clever editing, which probably required some poor soul to comb through hours of news reports, the nation’s pre-eminent prime-time anchor has rapped for us Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and The Sugarhill Gang. On Monday night, Sir Mix-a-Lot joined that list. Judging by the audience’s laughter, it very well may be Williams’ finest work yet.

Dave Chappelle Describes the First Time He Met Kanye West and It’s Amazing

Kanye, never change

+ READ ARTICLE

In advance of a string of shows at Radio City Music Hall, Dave Chappelle has been hitting the late night talk show circuit – and it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

During a stop-over on The Tonight Show, Chappelle recounted that time he was mistaken for member of The Roots, the show’s house band and let Jimmy Fallon thank him for abruptly departing for South Africa and leaving a gaping hole in the comedy scene: “In the meantime I got famous. So thank you for that,” Fallon quipped. “That helped.”

But the best story to emerge from the appearance was the first time Chappelle met a then-unknown rapper named Kanye West. Chappelle gave West his first appearance on television as a musical guest on The Dave Chappelle Show back in 2003. “You could tell that he was going to be a star,” the comedian said on Fallon. “I didn’t know him until he did the show.”

While making the show, Chappelle, West, Jay Z, Common and Talib Kweli were listening to Jay Z’s just-released Black Album at Chappelle’s studio. On track 12 of the album (“Lucifer”), Jay says, “Kanyeezy, you’s a genius. You did it again!” Chappelle said that at that point, “Kanye stood up. First time he spoke all day, and he goes, ‘Stop the record! And rewind that.’ “

Later, West took a phone call during which he announced, “‘Hello? No, I can’t. Because I’m at the edit for the Dave Chappelle Show, watching sketches that no one’s seen before.’ ” West paused for a moment before declaring, “‘Cause my life is dope and I do dope s–t,” before hanging up the phone.

Time may pass, but Kanye remains the same.

Mila Kunis to Expectant Fathers: Stop Saying ‘We’re Pregnant’

Kunis said she had a "very special message for all you soon-to-be fathers"

+ READ ARTICLE

On Tuesday night, actress Mila Kunis dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live, and had some choice words for fathers-to-be who use the phrase, “We’re expecting.”

“Oh, you’re both having a baby?” the expectant Ted star asked sarcastically. “You and your wife are pregnant?”

“You’re not pregnant,” Kunis, grabbing a mike. “Do you have to squeeze a watermelon-sized person out of your lady hole? No.”

Kunis, 30, is expecting a child with fiancé Ashton Kutcher. Kimmel’s wife Molly McNearney is also pregnant with the couple’s first child.

Watch: Jennifer Lopez Challenges Jimmy Fallon to Tight Pants Dance-Off

The two wore matching white pants and crop tops

+ READ ARTICLE

It’s not often that a superstar argues with a late night comedian about whose pants are the tightest in town. But that’s what happened on Monday night, when Jennifer Lopez, 44, challenged Late Night host Jimmy Fallon, 39, to a dance off… in a pair of tight white pants.

The pop diva sang: “I can swing my arms, I can shake my hips, I can dance down the block knowing I’m the only chick that’s wearing tight pants, and I’m the only one.”

This is not the first time that Fallon got into a dance-off, as the late night host got into a similar fight with Will Ferrell during a 2012 episode of Late Night.

Watch Jimmy Fallon and Ricky Gervais Try to Slip “Spanx” and “Squeegee” into Casual Conversation

A very inappropriate Richard Gere joke is the cherry on top

+ READ ARTICLE

Ricky Gervais dropped by The Tonight Show Monday and was lucky to have the opportunity to play “Word Sneak,” a game that requires players to seamlessly slip in five secret words. The goal is to keep the other player from knowing what your words are, but of course, the game usually just devolves into a fit of giggles. (See: Bryan Cranston playing the same game last month.)

One of the words on Gervais’s list is gerbil, so he references an old urban legend involving Richard Gere and some inappropriate gerbil-related activities. Fallon doesn’t seem to catch this reference, but Questlove sure does.

Anyway, enjoy the cacophony of laughter as Gervais and Fallon hilariously stumble through the conversation.
