Jimmy Fallon And Dwayne Johnson Have An Epic 'Intense Staredown'
Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson pondered the mysteries of the universe during an "Intense Staredown" on Fallon's "Tonight Show" Thursday night.

The two stars donned long Kimono-like outfits and wore long haired wigs while sitting in the snowy mountains to share their wisdom via their thoughts as falling snow and the fog from a smoke machine was blown through their set.

The hilarious bit featured Johnson waxing poetic with his old WWE wrestling nickname and Fallon riffing on Harry Belafonte's classic song "Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)."

One of the funnier moments comes as Johns...

Just over a year ago late night host Jimmy Fallon had comedian/writer Stephen Merchant and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt guest on his "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," and the three stars engaged in the first "Lip Sync Battle."

November 9th, 2014 11:24am EST
Jay Leno returns to The Tonight Show
Jay Leno returned to The Tonight Show on Friday night for the first time since he left the show and Jimmy Fallon took over.

The comedian took the stage for about six minutes of stand up following a rousing ovation from the crowd. Unfortunately, many of his jokes were mediocre and the theme of his routine seemed to be d*ck jokes.

The comedian, who has a new car show called "Jay Leno's Garage" in the works for cable network CNBC, sat down with Fallon following his routine, joking about getting called up to chat with the host after just his first time on the show.

Regardless of the outcome,...

Jay Leno To Make Return To 'The Tonight Show' Friday
Former "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno is returning to his old stomping grounds on Friday night as a guest of Jimmy Fallon.

It will be the first time he's been back to the show after signing off after almost 22 years as the show's host.

Leno has not seen "The Tonight Show's" new digs in Manhattan. The show was based in California for years while Leno and Johnny Carson were at the helm.

Fallon did coerce Leno to appear on a TV parody titled, "House of Cue Cards" but that was not a sit-down interview.

The comedian has been busy since he retired from late night. He is starting a new CNBC seri...

Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am teamed up with Jimmy Fallon to release a music video based on the late night host's recurring teenage girl skit, "Ew!"

The two stars dressed as teen girls Sara and her pal "mir.i.am" in the video, which debuted Monday on "The Tonight Show."

The two stars wore dresses, wigs and braces on their teeth while at a high school dance and sang about things they think are "Ew!", like duck lips, breadbowls, FaceTime and butt implants, all of which is... "Ew!"

Fallon's bandleader Questlove, of The Roots, played the part of the DJ during the high school dance.

Jimmy Fallon whipped up a hokey school announcement skit with guest Julianna Margulies on Tuesday night's episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The two stars played the principal and vice principal of fictitious Saugerties High School (not to be confused with the real Saugerties, NY, High School), singing their way through the school's morning announcements to the tunes of Beyonce, Iggy Azalea, Lil Wayne and Taylor Swift.

Our Favorite Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon Moments
While most people who watched this week's announcement by Apple of the new iPhone 6 are talking about the new device's bigger screen size and other tech specs, we here at Starpulse were most entertained by a couple of ads the Cupertino-based company unveiled during the presentation. After the first ad, featuring two people humming the theme to 2001: A Space Odyssey while holding the new phones was played, Apple CEO Tim Cook asked the crowd if they who knew who the off-camera singers were. Cracking a big smile on his face, he said "Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon!"

Britney Spears joined Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday evening to poke fun at her recent breakup from lawyer David Lucado, who allegedly cheated on her with porn star Cali Lee two weeks ago.

The two broke out a new skit called "The Pros and Cons of Dating Britney Spears" -- but not before the comedian revealed that he created a profile on dating site Tinder for her, which she looked really thrilled about.

"I want to mention something fun we did earlier," Fallon said. "You're out there in the dating pool. You're looking for Mr. Right. Here at The Tonight Show we're all about makin...

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."

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...

"It's just a matter of when," Sarandos told USA Today, in reference to the cast's busy schedules.

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.

Nina Dobrev Plays Giant Beer Pong

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...

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 ...

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. #...

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...

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...

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

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.

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...

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...
