37 year old Mitchell, who was a guest on Fallon’s sofa on Wednesday night (September 23rd) and currently stars in Nick’s ‘Game Shakers’, reprised his classic role of Ed the cashier (now promoted to supervisor all these years later) from the Good Burger sketch from ‘All That’, while Thompson played another character, construction Lester Oakes, not his old character of Dexter Reed.

Kristen Stewart played Word Blurt with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday.

The chat show host and his guest Jason Segel play an intriguing game of Word Sneak

Having been photographed without his cast on Wednesday, ‘The Tonight Show’ host was invited onstage for a surprise appearance at the rock supergroup’s New York gig that night (July 22nd).

Daniel Radcliffe was filmed performing Eminem’s ‘The Real Slim Shady’ at a karaoke bar in California – take a look!
Daniel Radcliffe was recently filmed at a karaoke bar and his performance is actually pretty incredible. Whilst most people may turn to Dolly Parton or any 80s power ballad they can find, the Harry Potter actor went in an entirely different direction: rap.

LOL!”

Lena Dunham, rocking out with the best of them.
Lena Dunham, everybody. The Girls creator guested on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Friday night and it served as the perfect occasion to bring back... wait for it... LIP SYNC BATTLE. Oh yeah! The two battled against each other over eight minutes, with Fallon trying his lips at Charlene’s “I’ve Never Been to Me” and RUN-DMC’s “Run’s House” and Dunham taking on Calvin Harris’ “Outside” (feat. Ellie Goulding) and Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls.”
Who knew Lena Dunham had so much diva in her?
Recently, Fallon has branched out and created a full show, based on his most successful skit. The show, aptly named Lip Sync Battle is hosted by LL Cool J and airs on Spike TV. But Dunham wanted to go back to the source to find a platform for her – rather impressive – lip syncing talents.
After 33 years of late night talk show hosting, David Letterman is set to present his final episode of 'The Late Show' on Wednesday night.

And yet another lip sync battle went out of control.
Can we all agree that The Tonight Show is the funniest of the late night circuit? Everyone else can stop trying now, thank you. Last night (Thursday, April 16) saw the return of John Krasinski to Fallon’s studio and the actor paid (hilarious) tribute to N’Sync and Jimmy’s old pal Justin Timberlake.
Krasinski was good, but he was no match for Kendrick's cunning.
It was the lip sync battle of a century, with Krasinski absolutely killing it rocking out to the band’s 2000 hit Bye Bye Bye, as I’m sure we’ve all done at one point or another, probably after a couple tequilas.
This is the best use of classroom instruments ever.
Remember those totally unusable instruments you were given for music class in elementary school? Well, it turns out, they're not so unusable after all - Jimmy Fallon enlists Madonna and The Roots and his collection of children's music things in an epic new video.
Madonna performs 'Holiday' with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots
You never see real musicians using the likes of maracas, cowbells, glockenspiels or tambourines in their compositions (not often, anyway) so why do teachers expect children to learn the art of music making this way? Well, legendary neo-soul collective The Roots and Queen of Pop Madonna have proved on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' that with proper execution these instruments aren't so lame after all.
Dwayne Johnson miming and dancing to Taylor Swift? Yep this actually happened.
The Rock aka Dwayne Johnson, stole the show in the first episode of Spike’s ‘Lip Sync Battle’ which pits a pair of celebs against each other every week in the ultimate miming contest. The former WWE champ teamed up with rapper Common to take on Jimmy Fallon and John Legend on Thursday evening, demonstrating his miming skills to Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’.
The Rock is now a champion of the 'Lip Sync Battle'
Johnson performed Swfity’s modern pop classic, as well as donning the infamous John Travolta white suit for a rendition of the Bee Gee’s ‘Stayin’ Alive’. The 42 year old’s partner Common also performed Lionel Richie’s 'All Night Long' and 'I Want You Back' by The Jackson 5, helping to secure victory for the pair.
Be prepared to feel amused and totally creeped out all at the same time.
On Thursday night’s edition of ‘The Tonight Show’, host Jimmy Fallon unveiled what has got to be the creepiest of all the creepy duets. In the pre taped skit, Jimmy and five (yes five!) identical Jimmy Fallon waxworks give a hilarious, if yet totally disturbing rendition of the Beach Boy’s 1965 classic ‘Barbara Ann’.
That's a lot of Jimmy Fallons
The skit begins with Jimmy answering a call from his mom as The Beach Boy’s classic plays as his ringtone. "Hey Mom!" the host says. "They just dropped off my wax figures from Madame Tussauds. It's amazing. The details, everything, it looks just like me.”

The comedian refused to break character during his late night talk show appearance.
You'd be forgiven for being a little confused by Will Ferrell’s appearance on last night’s edition of ‘The Tonight Show’, after all host Jimmy Fallon also seemed pretty perplexed by the comedian’s choice of costume. Ferrell appeared on Fallon's sofa dressed as Little Debbie's snack cakes mascot, Little Debbie and refused to break character during his interview, which was meant to be promoting new movie Get Hard.
Will Ferrell looked slightly different on last night's edition of 'The Tonight Show'
Wearing a blue check dress, a white apron, black patent shoes, white ruffle socks and with a curly brown wig under his straw hat, Ferrell gave no real explanation for his choice of attire, as host Fallon looked on baffled.
‘The Voice’ judge channelled her fellow ex-Mouseketeer when she stopped by ‘The Tonight Show’ sofa on Monday.
Christina Aguilera might be about to make her return as a judge on NBC singing competition ‘The Voice’, but the pop diva proved she has more than a few ‘voices’ in her repertoire, when she appeared on Monday's edition of ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'. The host challenged Xtina to a game of ‘Wheel of Musical Impressions’ while on his sofa, but Fallon probably wasn’t expecting his guest to be such an expert mimic.
Christina Aguilera could have fooled us with her Britney impression.
Aguilera was first challenged to sing the "Folgers Coffee" jingle in the style of her Burlesque co-star Cher, which she managed perfectly. Then Fallon’s turn came, where he delivered a pretty impressive impression of David Bowie, if he were to sing ‘You're a Grand Old Flag’.
The pair pulled their best dance moves on 'NYC Fan Dance Cam' sketch.
Taylor Swift 'reminisces' with Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show' about their Jumbotron dancing moments in a hilarious sketch as part of his one year anniversary in hosting the show. Prepare to be amazed; there's some serious choreography going on right there.

The 'Shake It Off' sensation is genuinely becoming everyone's favourite party guest these days.

Zack, Slater, Jessie, Kelly and Principal Richard Belding return as Jimmy Fallon reminisces.
Could Jimmy Fallon possibly get any cooler? Following the comedy highlights from his 'The Tonight Show' special for the Super Bowl XLIX, the comedian has reunited cast members from beloved 90s show 'Saved By The Bell' in his latest skit.
Jimmy Fallon goes back to high school
Fallon gets a decent amount of appreciation for his crazy outfit combination and startlingly long hair as he reminisces about his high school days, and goes into a scene set-up of Bayside High. However, a particularly prolonged applause went to Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris) as he made an appearance complete with wavy blonde hair and looking almost indistinguishable from his younger self some 25 years ago, proceeding to reel off the lyrics from the famous theme tune.
Imagine your pre game pics being invaded by Star-Lord AND Captain America.
Chris Pratt and Chris Evans may have been rivals in the weeks leading up to the Superbowl, but the two Marvel stars have proved their best when working together, after taking part in ‘The Tonight Show’s’ ‘Celebrity Photobomb’ segment.
Chris Pratt has been helping Jimmy Fallon and Chris Evans with some epic photobombs
Seahawks fan Pratt and Patriots supporter Evans had been building up a friendly rivalry over social media after their teams made it to the Superbowl final. The two eventually made a bet that if the Seahawks lost Pratt had to show up at Evans' non-profit housing venture Christopher's Haven, dressed as Star-Lord. Then if the Patriots lost, Evans would have to pay a visit to a Seattle children's hospital dressed as Captain America.
Turns out Nicole Kidman once had a thing for Jimmy Fallon problem is, the funnyman didn't even realise.
First dates are usually pretty awkward, but one way to make them a little worse is to not even tell one of the participants that they're meant to be one a date! That’s kind of what happened when Nicole Kidman went round to Jimmy Fallon’s place over a decade ago, thinking she was on a date with the comedian. Instead it all meant for a hilariously awkward encounter that the actress would later recall while appearing on the ‘Tonight Show’.
Jimmy Fallon appeared to be just not that into Nicole Kidman during their date.
Kidman was sitting on Fallon’s TV sofa to promote her latest movie Paddington, when the topic of conversation turned to the pair’s first and only prior meeting. Kidman encouraged the talk show host to tell his version of the encounter first, where he thought the actress was coming over to discuss a potential movie role.
One Direction and Jerry Seinfeld turned up on NBC's 'The Tonight Show' earlier this week to make for a memorable episode.
Comedian and TV presenter Jimmy Fallon has had a couple of very special guests on ‘The Tonight Show’ in the run-up to Christmas. On Monday he sang an adorable festive song with One Direction before hosting the boyband on his show the following evening.
One Direction sang 'Santa Claus Is Coming to Town' with Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show'
In the episode shown on the night before Christmas Eve (Tuesday 23 December), the British hitmakers were guests on the show and Fallon broadcast the clip they had previously recorded, a cover version of ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’ performed on classroom instruments and be-decked in some pretty nerdy-looking Christmas jumpers. Enough to induce festive feelings into even the hardest of hearts!

After just 16 months since the birth of their first child, Jimmy Fallon confirms more good news.
Congratulations to Jimmy Fallon and, of course, his wife Nancy Juvonen as they proudly announce the arrival of their second baby (another daughter!) Frances Cole Fallon. With the child being carried via gestational surrogate, the couple previously kept the impending news secret.
Jimmy Fallon and Nancy Juvonen are parents again
Life is full of nice surprises and 'The Tonight Show' host has certainly shown his spontaneity as he's only now revealed that his second child has been born. The media hadn't had so much of a sniff of baby news since Fallon and Juvonen welcomed Winnie Rose Fallon into the world in July 2013, but it seems they are dead set on developing a large family of their own. Frances Cole made her arrival on Wednesday morning according to a representative of the family.
