You’ll Never Guess Who Convinced Joe Manganiello to Strip for Magic Mike

The actor told Seth Meyers he wasn't sure he wanted to be known for baring it all

Joe Manganiello wasn’t always so sure about joining the cast of Magic Mike, where he and a band of merry, sweaty men bare it all for raucous crowds. In fact, if it wasn’t for one comedian, the towering star may have never jumped on stage at “Xquisite” — and wouldn’t be appearing in the upcoming sequel Magic Mike XXL.

The star told Seth Meyers on Late Night on Monday that Chris Rock was the one who ultimately convinced him to take the role.

“I’m kind of a guy’s guy and I think guys are going to hate me if I keep doing this,” Manganiello recalls telling Rock. “And he said, ‘Man, guys are going to hate you anyway.'”

With that piece of golden advice, the rest was history.

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:

Here’s Why Ellie Kemper Might Be on the TSA Watchlist

“I wasn’t trying to get anything by on them. I just forgot”

Ellie Kemper learned the hard way what happens when you try to bring back a bite from overseas.

The star of the hit Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt told a story about a trip she took to London during a sit down on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday night. Her souvenir of choice? Apples that bomb sniffing dogs discovered when she reached the airport.

“I wasn’t trying to get anything by on them. I just forgot,” the actress explained. “And the bomb sniffing dogs came, and they sniffed out the apples, and I was detained.”

Because of the whole ordeal, she said, “I may or may not be on the TSA watchlist.”

Watch Ed Sheeran Cover Limp Bizkit and Iron Maiden for Jimmy Fallon

'Do you enjoy the morbid and disturbing themes of heavy metal music, but wish that it had a more cheerful, pleasant sound?'

Ed Sheeran, pop music’s sweet-voiced crooner, unleashed his inner thrasher on Monday night’s The Tonight Show. In addition to gushing about his night out with music royalty Jay Z and Beyonce, Sheeran took the time to cover some tracks outside of his usual repertoire for host Jimmy Fallon.

“Do you enjoy the morbid and disturbing themes of heavy metal music, but wish that it had a more cheerful, pleasant sound?” asked Fallon, wearing a lengthy wig and turtle neck, in a sketch on the late-night show. “Well, wish no more.”

Sheeran then covered hardcore hits like Iron Maiden’s “Run to the Hills” and Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff” with his signature folksy soul sound.

If that’s not hardcore enough for you, Sheeran takes a swing at rap music making Ty Dolla $ign’s hit “Paranoid” sound like a sweet ballad.

"I never wanted to take my shirt off"

Ryan Seacrest confessed some crippling childhood insecurities to Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night.

“I used to hate spring break…because you would have to go to the pool or the beach and I never wanted to take my shirt off,” Seacrest said.

The American Idol host revealed that he was overweight as a child, and worked hard to get to where he is now and overcome his body issues.

Nick Jonas Says He’s Jealous of Jimmy Fallon’s Hit Song

The musician and the late night host talked about their most recent hit songs... and who's ahead of the game

Of all the competition out there, young actor and music sensation Nick Jonas’ greatest fear is late night host Jimmy Fallon…or so he joked, on Wednesday night, during an appearance on the Tonight Show.

That’s because Fallon’s parody song with will.i.am., Ew!, debuted the same week that Jonas’ recent hit, Jealous, did. For a period of time, Fallon’s Ew! was higher on the Billboard Top 100 than Jonas’ Jealous.

Jonas’ song has since pulled ahead, staying steady in the Top 10.

Watch the late night host and the singer quip, above.
