Samuel L. Jackson has a glorious backstory to becoming Nick Fury

If you’re ever in a comic book store in LA, keep your eyes peeled for superheroes. Not just the illustrated kind, either.
In the clip above for The Tonight Show, Samuel L. Jackson explains to Jimmy Fallon how he became Marvel’s Nick Fury. Apparently it all started when he was browsing comics.
“I’m passing the rack and I see this thing, the Ultimates, and I go: ‘Wow: Dude looks like me’,” explains Jackson, before going on to describe a scene in the comic where Nick Fury even says he would want Jackson to play him in a movie. 
Imagine how surreal it must…

Bryan Cranston and Lana Condor go back to school in ‘To All the Boys’ inspired song

We all have secret selves, but you’ve just gotta let ’em shine. We’ve all got actual secrets too, but maybe some of those can stay well and truly buried. 
That’s what we’ve learned from a weird song performed by Jimmy Fallon alongside Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star (and heroine of our hearts) Lana Condor.
The unlikely trio time-travelled back to the ol’ high school cafeteria on The Tonight Show for a song dubbed “To All the Me’s I’ve Loved Before,” reminiscent of High School Musical’s “Stick to the Status Quo.”
Yeah, Cranston makes it brilliantly weird….

John Oliver screaming Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Since U Been Gone’ is all of us

Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone” is too high-pitched for mere mortals like ourselves, Shaq, John Oliver, Rachel Brosnahan, Anthony Anderson, and even Mumford and Sons.
That didn’t stop Jimmy Fallon from challenging a bunch of celebrities and musicians to try their voices on the formidable pop song.
The Tonight Show host whacked headphones on the willing participants, but apart from fellow pitch-perfect singer Meghan Trainor, none could come as close as the supremo soprano herself, Kelly Clarkson.
John Oliver screaming like a banshee? That’s what the rest of us sound like. Read more…

‘Aquaman’ star Jason Momoa challenges Jimmy Fallon to some casual trident throwing

It might seem foolish to challenge Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman in the upcoming DC chapter, to a casual trident throwing challenge. But that didn’t stop Jimmy Fallon.
In the film, Aquaman is a master of the trident, and on The Tonight Show, Momoa absolutely nailed it, like he was casually playing darts in a friend’s basement. Highly impressive.
The target? Arch-villain Ocean Master, of course. Minus 20 points if you hit Nemo. Read more…

Tiffany Haddish and Jimmy Fallon throw down ’90s bangers in a Lip Sync Battle

Ready for the fastest feet you’ve seen today?
For the latest instalment of his wildly popular “Lip Sync Battle” segment, Fallon invited Saturday Night Live favourite Tiffany Haddish into the arena.
Both kicked off with some solid ’90s nostalgia. Fallon shimmied through Deee-Lite’s 1990 banger “Groove Is in the Heart,” but Haddish absolutely nailed the Lady of Rage’s 1994 track “Afro Puffs.” 
The late show host picked Post Malone’s “Psycho,” which seemed to slow the pace, but Fallon picked it up with a few of the rapper’s signature face tattoos. But Haddish went old school for James Brown’s “Get Up (I Feel Like Being…

Bored? Make a doo-wop song on an iPad like Kelly Clarkson, Queen Latifah, Jimmy Fallon

Here’s a fun activity: Get two friends, a Looper app, and make a doo-wop song.
On Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon dragged out live music looping app Loopy to create a doo-wop iPad masterpiece with powerhouse singers Queen Latifah and Kelly Clarkson.
Choosing classic tune “Earth Angel,” originally by ’50s group the Penguins, and popularized by Marvin Berry and The Starlighters in Back to the Future, the trio layer up some sweet, sweet harmonies, then some deep basslines, and a whole lot of bahp-bahps.
It’s damn delightful, and could be a pretty solid activity for your next bored night. Read more…
