Pierce Bronsan Plays 'GoldenEye' With Superfan Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon is a huge fan of James Bond. On Tuesday night he interviewed Pierce Brosnan and told him how much he loved the classic Nintendo 64 videogame "GoldenEye 007."

"This is one of the best video games of all time," Fallon declared.

"It was extremely popular," Brosnan agreed. "I was no good at it. I played it once and shot myself in the foot."

Fallon said it was a childhood dream to play the video game with Bronsan, who agreed.

"This is fantastic. Oh, my gosh," Fallon gushed. "I'm very excited about this. You don't understand."

We're not going to tell you who won, but Fallon,...

Robin Williams
Late night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien paid tribute to the late Robin Williams, who inspired them and appeared on their shows several times to entertain their audiences with his unique brand of comedy.

After Conan had the unfortunate task of announcing Robin's death two nights ago to a shocked audience, he and Andy Richter discussed their time with the comedian. Conan shared the story of receiving a ridiculous bike as a gift from Robin, who later asked him, "Do you really look stupid riding it?" After Conan replied, "Yeah, I’m gonna look really stupid," the comedian said, "Well th...

Will Arnett Confirms Fifth Season Of 'Arrested Development,' Kic
Will Arnett will be involved in the upcoming fifth season of Arrested Development, he told Jimmy Fallon on last night's Tonight Show before he kicked some pinatas around.

NetFlix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said there would be a fifth season of the beloved ensemble comedy, which was canceled by FOX in 2006 before getting resurrected on NetFlix for a fourth season. "It's just a matter of when," Sarandos told USA Today, in reference to the cast's busy schedules.

Once Will confirmed the news and chatted about his part in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is out this weekend, he an...

Megan Fox Doesn't Remember What A Frog Looks Like

Megan Fox, Jimmy Fallon, Nick Cannon, Wiz Khalifa
Megan Fox was ready to take on Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon in a game of celebrity Pictionary – it's just too bad she couldn't remember what a frog looks like.

Fox and Fallon were joined by Nick Cannon, who paired up with Fox, and Wiz Khalifa, who was on Jimmy's team. For the first drawing, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actress had to draw the phrase "frog in your throat." While she was able to portray a throat, she claimed "I don't remember what they look like" when she had to draw a frog. It's too bad she didn't star in Teenage Mutant Ninja Frogs, then.

Jimmy got the much more es...

Nina Dobrev Plays Giant Beer Pong

Nina Dobrev and Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon sure loves his drinking games on The Tonight Show. After failing to play proper beer pong with Diane Keaton in April, he made the game bigger and better for last night's guest Nina Dobrev.

Using volleyballs and giant party cups (where does one buy those?), Fallon faced off against the Vampire Diaries star in a first-to-three contest. The rules were simple: Bounce the ball into a cup and your opponent has to chug a beer.

Jimmy quickly got ahead to a two-cup lead, but he got pretty cocky and began taking shots with his eyes covered. Check out the video to see if he pulled off...

Jimmy Fallon and Helen Mirren
Can you believe it's been 100 episodes already for Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show? To Celebrate, Jimmy had beloved actress Helen Mirren on the show and acted opposite her in a sketch titled "Mirren, Mirren."

In the sketch, Jimmy is an inquisitive fellow (Helen later calls him an "Australian pantomime dame") who asks the magical Helen Mirren Mirror questions like "What do you think of Fifty Shades of Grey?" You know, hard-hitting stuff.

Mirren, who only replied in rhyme, said "The whips and chains are not my style, but who doesn’t love a jolly good spanking once in a while?" The theme ...

Watch Julia Roberts Take A Ball To The Face!

Julia Roberts and Jimmy Fallon
Julia Roberts looked like she had her face rearranged during a new game with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

In a simple contest titled "Face Balls," Julia and Jimmy threw beach balls at one another's faces in order to produce the funniest slow-motion replay.

In the first round, the two threw smaller balls and laughs as they watched the hilarious recap on a big screen behind them. Jimmy's face was practically flattened by the inflatable, while Julia looked funnier bracing for the hit than actually taking it.

What Julia Roberts did on my show tonight was legendary. She is awesome. #...

Who Is Jimmy Fallon Rolling On The Floor With Now?

Jimmy Fallon and Heidi Klum
About a month ago Jimmy Fallon was showing us all "how he rolls" with Halle Berry. Now, the talk show host has recruited the beautiful Heidi Klum to take a tumble with him on The Tonight Show.

Jimmy wanted to chat with Klum about her role on America's Got Talent as a judge, but apparently they needed to limber up first. The German beauty, wearing a tight dress, stood over Jimmy as he laid down on a gym mat.

"I'm not gonna look! I'm not gonna peek! My eyes are closed! Trust me," Fallon reassured her while she stood over his head for the stunt. He said the same thing to Halle, of course, an...

Questlove watching Fifty Shades Of Grey Trailer
Everyone's been talking about the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer since its release a week ago, and Jimmy Fallon thought he'd have a little fun with it during Tuesday night's episode of The Tonight Show.

The host pranked house band The Roots by sitting them all down individually and filming their reactions.

Unbeknownst to the band, a very frightening image was inserted at a random spot in the trailer, causing drummer Questlove & co. to nearly jump out of their skin.

Best thing is, it was all captured on tape. Check it out below...

How Would You Describe 'Castaway' In One Second?

James Franco Tries To Describe 'Castaway' In One Second On 'Toni
James Franco and Jimmy Fallon are very competitive guys, so when Jimmy invited James onto The Tonight Show he had to make him play a game.

James immediately questioned the host's trustworthiness when Jimmy described "5-Second Summaries," during which one of them will try to describe a movie in five seconds without using a word in the title. "Don't.. not guess just because you want to win," Franco said, "... because you beat me last time with the skee-ball thing. I don't want to lose again." Back in 2011, when Jimmy hosted Late Night, he and James played life-sized skee-ball with the audien...

Jimmy Fallon's Kayak Race With Cameron Diaz Goes Horribly Wrong

The Tonight Show
Jimmy Fallon had the fun idea of racing Cameron Diaz on roller kayaks on The Tonight Show, but he didn't get very far.

Diaz was on the show to promote her movie Sex Tape and joined one of Jimmy's many celebrity games. This time, she and Jimmy had to paddle roller kayaks around the studio, keeping out of the way of Elton John impersonators and Josh Gad as he threw trout at them.

Despite his good intentions, Jimmy couldn't keep up with Cameron for very long and immediately had difficulty paddling his kayak. So, he just got out and began pushing Cameron around.

During her inter with Jim...

Kelly Ripa Tries To Avoid Getting Wet In Jimmy Fallon's 'Pop Quiz'

Kelly Ripa and Jimmy Fallon
On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, you can't hold a simple pop quiz. No, you have to give your celebrity guest a dunce cap with a spike on the end of it and sit them beneath a balloon with four gallons of water inside.

That's what Kelly Ripa was faced with when she visited the show and had to face off against Jimmy in a battle of "pop" (get it?) culture. With their dunce caps on (and a raincoat for Kelly), the two sat in chairs that would be lifted every time the other contestant answered a question correctly – or go their question wrong. The first to pop the balloon above them los...

Last night we learned how far Jimmy Fallon is willing to go for a good pun on The Tonight Show.

Fallon wrote on his Twitter page before his show aired, "Not kidding. Get ready. #ThisIsHalleRoll." Halle, of course, refers to his guest Halle Berry. Berry visited the show to promote her upcoming CBS show Extant. But how would she roll?

Jimmy Fallon Recruits Crosby, Stills, And Nash To Sing Iggy Azalea's 'Fancy'

Jimmy Fallon, Crosby, Stills, And Nash
Jimmy Fallon knew he'd have to add some music legends if he wanted to perform a Neil Young inspired cover of Iggy Azalea's #1 hit Fancy on The Tonight Show.

Fallon - as he's done multiple times before - put on his flat-brimmed hat, plaid shirt, jacket, and jeans to emulate the style of the venerable rocker. He then strapped on an acoustic guitar and a harmonica and sang Azalea's hit like it was a folk hit – and it would pass muster, if it weren't for the lyrics ("And I'm still in the Murda Bizness / I could hold you down, like I'm givin' lessons in physics").

When it came time to sing t...

Comedian Kevin Hart braved a trip to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, where Jimmy Fallon has been filming The Tonight Show this week, and the two took a ride on the park's Rip Tide Rocket roller coaster together.

The result of the ride is nothing short of hilarious because Hart is terrified of the amusement park rides.

“I don't like 'em. You know damn well I don't like no roller coasters," the actor, on the show to promote new film Think Like A Man Too, said.

Fallon used Hart's latest movie title to describe their daring stunt, saying, "Think like a man, we gotta act like a man! We...

Jimmy Fallon found out the hard way what happens when you try to play a drinking game with someone who just wants to drink.

Diane Keaton was on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon yesterday to promote her book Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty. Fallon, who regularly challenges his guests to games, got the idea to play beer pong with the actress.

Keaton, in her signature "pilgrim" outfit, was much more interested with the red wine in the party cups than the rules of the game.

The actress then hurled a ping pong ball at Fallon and caught his throw, breaking the rules so that she could chug ...
