<![CDATA[Helen Mirren's "Simple Life"]]> Tue, 31 Mar 2015 05:58:59 -0400 http://media.nbcwashington.com/images/213*120/468163034.jpg

Helen Mirren may have played “The Queen” on big screen, but in real life, the actress rides the subway and washes her Crocs in the dishwasher.

The Oscar winner, who is currently living in the Big Apple while starring as Queen Elizabeth in the play “The Audience,” stopped by the “Tonight Show” Monday to talk about her new movie “Woman in Gold” and chatted with the host about her adventures traveling on New York City trains.

“It so funny to me that you take the subway,” Fallon said as he pulled out a picture of Mirren who was spotted on the R train. “You seem so posh.”

“The guy next to me is doing the classic ‘manspreading’ thing,” Mirren groused.

The actress pointed out that the move — a bane of many female subway riders — is not a new concept, men are just finally getting called out on it. 

Mirren also revealed that she is a complete addict when it comes to wearing Crocs, though that wasn’t always the case. The first time she ever saw a pair of the foam clogs she thought they were “absolutely hideous.” It wasn’t until her “The Tempest” co-star Alan Cummings convinced the actress to try a pair, that Mirren had a change of heart.

“Their so comfortable and you can wash them in the dishwasher,” Mirren said.

The “Tonight Show” host could not resist the opportunity to tease the “Prime Suspect” star about the shoes and gifted her with a special pair of Crocs featuring the British flag.

“I love them! Can I try them on right now?” Mirren asked as she proceeded to toss her heels and slip on the clogs.

Fallon praised Mirren on her “proper British accent” before asking if she would sound as posh speaking while sucking on helium. There was only one way to find out.

“Where do you keep your Academy Award?” Fallon asked in a chipmunk-like voice after inhaling a big gulp of helium balloon air.

“I keep my Academy Award on the stairs in my house in London,” Mirren said while trying hard to keep from laughing at the sound of her own voice.

Mirren then suggested that Fallon present her with an award so that she can give an impromptu acceptance speech.

<![CDATA[WATCH: Will Forte Sings Ode to His Beard]]> Sat, 28 Mar 2015 07:29:07 -0400 http://media.nbcwashington.com/images/213*120/Fallon-Will-Forte-Beard-Song.jpg

What do you do when your beard goes away? If you're Will Forte, you grow another one. And then you sing about it.

Forte joined Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” and lamented the loss of the bushy beard he grew for his role in the TV comedy “The Last Man on Earth.” Forte even saved the beard hair—but not for himself.

“We were talking about this before: You gave your mom your beard hair?” Fallon asked.

“Mom requested the beard hair,” Forte insisted. “She does art projects based on all my things, and she said, ‘May I have your beard hair for a project I’m working on?’”

But with no art project to show for it and only a scant beard to replace the shaggy original, Forte decided to express his sorrow through music.

“This song is about the depression and sadness I went through when I had to shave my beard off,” Forte said. “It’s a tough time in every man’s life when he has to shave his beard.”

As is his weekly habit, Fallon took some time to pen thank-you notes. On Friday’s list of recipients: Pope Francis, garage sales and the Final Four.

“Thank you, the Final Four — or as you’re now known, One Direction,” joked Fallon, riffing on the much-lamented departure of Zayn Malik from the band.

Fallon was also sure to thank Madame Tussauds for making a wax figure of him.

“Which reminds me — sure, honey, I’d love to go to your sister’s for dinner this weekend,” Fallon said, mock-guffawing as he looked at his waxen doppelgänger.

Adam Horovitz (better known as rapper Ad-Rock of Beastie Boys fame) stopped by “Tonight” to chat with Fallon about his acting role opposite Ben Stiller in the upcoming movie “While We’re Young.”

“I’m on a talk show!” Horovitz said gleefully, before becoming self-critically taking stock of his apparel. “I feel like I should have worn a hat,” Horovitz mused. (He later returned to the stage wearing a purple beanie.)

Jeremy Wade, the host of Animal Planet’s “River Monsters,” also visited the studio — and he brought along a few tanks full of peculiar specimens. Among them were electric catfish — which Forte ill-advisedly tried to kiss — and the decidedly bizarre hagfish, which oozed gobs of sticky slime all over Fallon’s hands.

It still remains to be seen whether those hagfish earn a thank-you note next week.

<![CDATA["Mitt in the Mirror" With Mitt Romney & Jimmy Fallon]]> Thu, 26 Mar 2015 07:16:10 -0400 http://media.nbcwashington.com/images/213*120/NUP_167998_1610.JPG

Mitt Romney finally revealed why he isn’t running in 2016, ending his presidential aspirations.

The 2012 Republican presidential candidate stopped by "The Tonight Show" Wednesday and chatted with Jimmy Fallon about the 2016 election and revealed that his 2-year-old grandson is training him for the Evander Holyfield charity fight.

Romney will be squaring off against the former heavyweight boxing champion on May 15 for Charity Vision’s “Fight Night” in Salt Lake City. Charity Vision is a non-profit organization that focuses on restoring curable sight impairment worldwide.

“It’s going to be a very quick battle,” Romney joked.

Having officially bowed out of the GOP race in January, the former Governor of Massachusetts was free to crack jokes about President Obama’s golf game, Hillary Clinton’s emails and his own presidential bid loss when he spoke to his “reflection” before sitting down with Fallon.

Fallon, pretending to be Romney in the “reflection” asked the real Mitt if he was ready for big interview.

“Well, actually I’m a little nervous," Romney admitted. "Jimmy is probably going to ask me why I didn’t run for president. What should I say?”

“Just tell him you enjoy the freedom. You get to sit back, relax, golf all the time, go on vacation whenever you want,” Fallon said as Mitt's reflection.

“AKA, be president?” Romney quipped.

Romney’s reflection, worried about the Holyfield charity fight, wanted some assurance that they weren’t crazy for taking on a heavyweight champion. The real Romney reminded the reflection that it was all in good fun. After all, he said, "what’s the worst that can happen?”

“That’s true, I guess it’s not the first time we lose to a black guy,” replied “reflection” Romney.

Watch the clip above to see what else Mitt Romney contemplates about with himself while talking to his “reflection.”

Will Ferrell is the new face of Little Debbie snack cakes.

The actor and comedian stopped by “The Tonight Show” Wednesday dressed as the snack icon Little Debbie, sporting her signature blue gingham-print dress, a curly red wig under a straw hat and black Mary Janes.

Ferrell, who is making the talk-show rounds to promote his latest movie “Get Hard,” explained to Fallon why he's been force to take on this new venture.

"Let's be honest, Jim: I'm not the Hollywood hunk I once was," Ferrell said. "This mug ain't makin' the moolah like it used to. I got a mouth to feed. Specifically, my mouth."

This Little “Debbie,” who repeatedly referred to Fallon as “Jim,” was a little stingier then most corporate sponsored guests. After asking the audience if they enjoyed the famous snack cakes — building up expectations for free samples — Ferrell told them to buy their own.

“You can buy one, you can buy, everyone can buy one,” Ferrell said as he pointed towards the crowd.

The “SNL” alum, who demanded to be called Debbie, claimed to be a Little Debbie cakes expert who could tell the difference between “a Debbie snack cake and a baked potato” with his eyes closed.

Fallon put Ferrell up to the challenge and pulled out a plate with a hot potato and a Little Debbie snack cake.

“A delicious cake with cream filling, white icing and fudge trimming — I know a little Zebra Cake when I can taste one,” Ferrell said of his selection.

The “Elf” star then sang a rendition of the famous jingle before skipping around the studio passing out sweet treats to the audience.

<![CDATA[Wiz Khalifa Doesn't Know Any Taylor Swift Songs]]> Tue, 17 Mar 2015 11:25:36 -0400 http://media.nbcwashington.com/images/213*120/Screen+Shot+2015-03-17+at+7.49.36+AM.png

Jimmy Fallon and Jim Parsons teamed up against Miles Teller and Wiz Khalifa for an epic game of Catchphrase.

Parsons stopped by “The Tonight Show” Monday to talk about his new animated movie “Home” in which the “Big Bang Theory” actor stars alongside Rihanna and funnyman Steve Martin.

With the game requiring four players, Fallon brought out “Insurgent” star Miles Teller, and musical guest, rapper Wiz Khalifa, to play as opponents.

Catchphrase, a game that combines elements of Charades and Taboo, is played by setting a timer on the buzzer and then drawing a clue from the top of the pile. Each player must get his teammate to guess the clue and then pass the buzzer along before the clock runs out.

The calm duo of Wiz Khalifa and Miles Teller proved to be worthy opponents to the energetic team Parsons and Fallon, easily beating the host and “Big Bang” star in the first round.

Khalifa did run into one major road-block for his team in the second round when he was asked to name the Taylor Swift Song “Shake it Off.”

“She’s doing this thing,” Teller said as he shook his hips.

The rapper, unable to guess the song, got a little help from the host.

“Just name any Taylor Swift song,” Fallon yelled.

Khalifa’s priceless reaction to Fallon’s suggestion proved the rapper doesn’t listen to Taylor Swift music and has somehow been able to avoid hearing one of the biggest hits of 2014.

Two of Australia’s finest exports, Hugh Jackman and Chris Hemsworth, donned mullets to play a game of Musical Beers.

Jackman is no stranger to the “business in the front, party in the back” hairstyle. The actor, who was on “The Tonight Show” Thursday promoting his sci-fi action movie “Chappie,” sported a mullet in the movie as well as when he met his wife 19 years earlier.

“I thought it was going to remind her of the early days when she fell in love with me,” Jackman said of his "Chappie" hairstyle. “Not so much. She told me to put a bag over my head.”

The host, never one to pass on a good joke, pulled out two mullet hair wigs for them to wear.

“Let’s keep these on for the rest of the interview,” Fallon said.

Fallon then invited Jackman to play the adult version of musical chairs, Musical Beers, and brought out “SNL” favorites Colin Jones, Kate McKinnon and Bobby Moynihan, as well as the show's host this weekend, Chris Hemsworth, to join the game.

Hemsworth, noticing Jackman’s hairstyle, requested a mullet of his own to rock.

In this version of the game, the group walked around a table while The Roots’ Questlove played the pop hit “Bang Bang” by Ariana Grande and Jessie J. When the music stopped, the contestants had to grab a cub of beer and whoever was empty handed stepped out.

The players dwindled quickly, and Jackman was knocked out early. In the end Fallon and Hemsworth were the last men standing, going head-to-head for the last cup. But it was a fast-acting move by the “Wolverine” actor, and not merit alone, that gave Fallon the game-winning beer.

Zoe Kravitz almost missed her “Tonight Show” appearance.

The "Divergent" actress was stuck in rush hour traffic Wednesday, and like a true New Yorker, jumped out of the car and hopped on the subway.

“People were calling to tell me I was late,” Kravitz said. “I was like, ‘I’m on D train.’ It was so much faster.”

Fallon asked the offspring of rocker Lenny Kravitz to thank her father for randomly picking him and his wife up at an airport in the Bahamas and getting them drunk off “Dark and Stormys.” Apparently, Fallon’s driver — who happened to be a friend of Kravitz — couldn’t make it to the airport and asked the "Fly Away" musician for a favor.

“I was like ‘What are you doing here man?’” Fallon said, confused about the encounter.

“I’m here to pick you up an take you to your boat,” Kravitz said.

The host, enamored by the Grammy Award winner’s humble gesture, proclaimed to be “officially in love with Lenny Kravitz as a human being.”

Fallon then challenged Zoe Kravitz to a game of Giant Beer Pong. The two players took turns attempting to throw giant Ping-Pong balls into oversized red Solo cups. And just like the famous drinking game, every time a player scored, the opponent had to chug a cup of beer.

Kravitz went first and nailed her shot like a college champ. Fallon went next, but failed to score a point.

“Jimmy, I’m disappointed,” said Kravitz. “You talked all this smack before the show,”

Both contestants failed to score on their second round, but Fallon did make a shot on his third try, forcing Zoe to take a drink.

“Chug it all,” Fallon rallied.

With the score tied, the next player to make a shot would win the game. Watch the video above to see who was declared the Giant Beer Pong Champion.
