Wear shades and a baseball cap, basically

Late night host Jimmy Fallon teased actor James Franco on The Tonight Show Monday for taking selfies with fans wearing huge sunglasses and not smiling.

“I’m going to show you why,” said Franco. It turns out, Franco said, most people don’t know how to take a good selfie. But if you put sunglasses on, and a hat on, and you make a stone-like face… “Then you’re going to look good from any angle!”

The 36-year-old actor just wrapped up performances of Broadway show Of Mice and Men, which set a box office record by earning more than a million dollars last week.

Morgan Freeman Inhales Helium With Jimmy Fallon

The actor conducted his interview in a much higher pitch than usual

Jimmy Fallon was up to his usual antics on The Tonight Show Thursday, convincing his guest Morgan Freeman to suck air out of a helium balloon and make his famously stoic voice high and squeaky.

Freeman was on the show to promote his upcoming film Lucy, but the late night host brought up an episode of the actor’s Discovery Channel show Through The Wormhole where he had sucked helium out of a balloon.

The actor has a fascination with scientific questions, as evidenced by both projects. While Lucy asks what would happen if a human used 100% of their brain, Through The Wormhole explores space mysteries such as the possible existence of non-human lifeforms in the universe.

See Which Foods Jimmy Kimmel Can’t Cook

The late night host attempted to show off his eggs for the world class chef.

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday night, where the late night host attempted to show off his cooking skills to the world-famous chef.

Despite his efforts, Ramsay was far from impressed, tossing Kimmel’s failed scrambled eggs on the floor of the set in a profanity-laced moment.

Given that Kimmel has three children, including newborn Jane, born on July 10, it could be assumed that he would be experienced in basic cooking. But according to the chef, this was not the case.
