Drunk Ron Weasley/Simon Pegg Wishes Harry Potter Happy Birthday

Ron Weasley has something he wants everyone to know: It's Harry Potter's 33rd birthday. And he's wasted out of his mind.

No, really. Everyone's beloved boy wizard turned 33 on July 31—does that make him a man wizard?—and Jimmy Fallon thought it was fitting to ring in Mr. Potter's birthday on his talk show last night. But a simple cake, candles and glass of champagne wouldn't do the trick. No, Fallon needed Ron Weasley. Ron Weasley inebriated. Ron Weasley inebriated and incoherently singing "Happy Birthday" to Harry Potter.

And that's exactly what he got. The dudes over at "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" dressed up actor Simon Pegg as Potter's right hand man—red hair, Gryffindor cloak, wand and all — along with a glass of juice scotch, and pushed him on stage. The rest is history. Get More »

Kristen Wiig: The Michael Jordan of Michael Jordan Impressions (VIDEO)

Kristen Wiig Jimmy FallonKrisen Wiig kicked butt as Suze Orman, Jamie Lee Curtis, Elisabeth Hasselbeck on "Saturday Night Live" (we're going to go ahead and say Target Lady is a real person, too).

But this week, she unleashed her greatest impression yet: Michael Jordan.

Armed with a bald cap, a Chicago Bulls jersey and a flawless imitation, Wiig  paid a visit to fellow "SNL" veteran Jimmy Fallon on Monday night's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." Get More »

Breathe Easier, Planet Earth: Jeff Daniels Confirms 'Dumb And Dumber To'

While promoting his super pretentious HBO series "The Newsroom" on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," Jeff Daniels, who at this point should be deemed a national treasure, told Fallon that he would indeed be back for a sequel to "Dumb and Dumber" (which by all accounts is being called "Dumb and Dumber To"). While Fallon essentially levitated out of his chair when Daniels confirmed the sequel's existence, he did temper that enthusiasm by saying, "I'll believe it when I'm staring Jim Carrey in the face." Awwww. So bromantic! Get More »

Puppies Take a Bite Out of This Year's Best Picture Race

This year's Oscars race for Best Picture is a toughie, but thanks to all that Academy snubbage in the Best Director department, Ben Affleck's "Argo" has been getting a substantial amount of buzz ... and these puppies totally agree.

Jimmy Fallon brought his "Late Night" Best Picture prediction pups back to redeem themselves after screwing the pooch last year — the little furballs plucked "The Tree of Life" for the win but wound up shamed by the runaway success of "The Artist" — and they found "Argo" to be the tastiest dish of the nine.

It does make sense, in a way, since the name of the flick does kinda sound like some sort of off-brand dog chow. Get More »

Jimmy Fallon Turns Down Oscars Host Invitation

Update: Looks like no one's going to be auto-tuning the Academy Awards this year, as Jimmy Fallon has officially turned down the invitation to host.

"It's an honor to be asked by the academy, but it's not my year," Fallon told Matt Lauer on "Today."

-------------------------------

Hosting the Oscars is no picnic, as James Franco and Anne Hathaway proved in 2011.

It takes style, panache, a way with the crowd, and just enough edge to be funny but not upset the 97-year-olds in AMPAS, all of which Jimmy Fallon possesses. That explains why The Los Angeles Times reports they're in negotiations with the late night comedian to host February's 85th Annual Academy Awards ceremony. Get More »

Paul Rudd and Jimmy Fallon Make Posters For 7 Fake Masterpieces

NBC

As if we didn't have enough reasons to dig on Paul Rudd, the funnyman has given us more… seven more, actually.

While dropping by "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" on Friday, ostensibly to promote new Anistonian comedy "Wanderlust," Rudd and Fallon reminisced about all the movies they made this year that went unnoticed by critics and audiences alike.

They trotted out seven posters, each with a more brilliantly idiotic premise than the last. Get More »

Jonah Hill may have slimmed down drastically in recent months, but there's one thing about the funnyman that's just as big as ever: his sense of humor.

Hill appeared on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" to promote his upcoming film "Moneyball" when the conversation took an unexpected turn.

The actor, who co-created the upcoming animated Fox series "Allen Gregory," was at an event for the network when he found himself the victim of an unlikely bully: Lima, Ohio's own purple piano-playing show choir enthusiast, otherwise known as  "Glee" star Matthew Morrison. Get More »

The 8 Best 'Twilight' Parodies Ever Created by Mankind

There are more "Twilight" spoofs online than amateur porn. That's hyperbole. I'm a guy. I know the amount of porn out there, it's as vast as the stars and the skies. Still, while searching through endless bad parody videos, I felt like someone with an extremely rare fetish looking for a fix.

My more savvy readers (that means you) may be wondering what criteria I used in selecting the best ever "Twilight" parodies. Obviously, taste plays a part in all of these list articles, but I did establish certain standards for judging beyond "Did it make me laugh?" Get More »

Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais has taken to his blog to dispel the controversy surrounding his scathing performance at last Sunday's awards show in Los Angeles.

"All the same conspiracy theories as last year too... 'So and so was offended'... 'hasn't been invited back yet'... exactly the same as last time," Gervais writes, referring to his previous Golden Globes hosting gig in 2010. "'Paul McCartney was furious'... no he wasn't. And nor was Tim Allen and Tom Hanks. I was drinking with them after." Get More »

Gwyneth Paltrow, Jimmy Fallon Reunite as '90s R&B Group Shazzazz

NBC

Gwyneth Paltow has come across a little cold over the last couple years. Or maybe gossip rags just paint her as someone she isn't. Some ice princess.

The good news is Paltrow's New Year's resolution appears to be "lighten up in 2011" or at least "show your true colors." Last night, she made an appearance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and performed -- again -- as a member of Shazzazz, the Fallon/Paltrow 80's/90's hip-hop/R&b duo. Get More »
