Last week saw an unusual interruption in Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, as the host canceled a week’s worth of shows over a reported family emergency. Fallon’s mother Gloria had passed on November 4, for which the normally-goofy comedian returned Monday night with a heartfelt address of his most beloved audience member.
When you’re out promoting a movie, you’re often asked to do a lot of things, most of them pretty silly. With the amount of press the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was being asked to do, there were asked to do a lot of silly things, none perhaps as silly as going on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and singing a medley of Star Wars music a cappella. But the entire cast — including Harrison Ford! — actually commits, and it actually turns out to pretty fun.
June 23rd. That's when the world get their first listen to Kacey Musgraves sophomore album, "Pageant Material." Ahead of the release date Musgraves will be stopping by not one, but two NBC late night shows.
Sigh. 'The Tonight Show' temporarily moves to Los Angeles -- Hollywood, Tinsel Town, The Big Grapefruit, only one of those is a real nickname -- and is suddenly just flooded with random star power. Zzzzz.
For the next week, 'The Tonight Show' is chilling in sunny Los Angeles -- the frigid cold of New York City, quite understandably, finally got to the crew, and also this has been planned for months -- and host Jimmy Fallon has spared no creative expense when it comes to making his temporarily Hollywood-based show look California cool. And we all know there's only one way to really drive home CA styling: 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.'
Like many of us, 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon appears to believe that Hollywood superstar Bradley Cooper can do anything -- and, based on his impressive resume of stage and screen roles and accolades, the guy can't be too off the mark. But there is one that Cooper isn't so great at: music. It's sort of surprising, really, and even the overly solicitous Fallon was a little dumbstruck when Cooper admitted that his musical talents are minimal on last night's show.
Comedian/actor/writer/director Chris Rock has already proven that he can do just about everything -- and do it pretty well, if his upcoming feature 'Top Five' is any indication -- but the funny man almost had another major career move bulleted on his resume. Before Rock made it big as an actor, he dabbled in the disc jockey arts, deeming his own skills to be "nice!" After the DJing came a deal for a rap record, which was made, but never released, a weird bit of trivia that Rock shared with Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show' last night.
Daniel Radcliffe's name may be forever synonymous with 'Harry Potter,' but the British actor has already proven that his talents extend far beyond playing the boy wizard on the big screen. He can do the Broadway thing! He's got a nifty fake American accent! He can rap! Wait...what?
