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

July 16th, 2014 3:01pm EDT
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'

July 10th, 2014 4:03pm EDT
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'

July 8th, 2014 3:03pm EDT
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...

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 ...
