The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Monday, March 16, 2015 marked the return of the show after a week-long hiatus. Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon, had on some great guests, like actor Miles Teller from the movie, Insurgent, and James Parsons from The Big Bang Theory and Home. The musical guest of the show was Wiz Khalifa, and later on in the episode, Wiz, Jimmy Fallon, Jim Parsons and Miles Teller played the game Catchphrase.
Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon, opened the show by welcoming his audience, who gave him a standing ovation. Then, he performed his monologue, joking about topics from the headlines of the news. For example, Fallon said that “During his weekly address to the nation, President Obama said that the most valuable skill you have to sell is your knowledge. Employees at Starbucks said ‘No, it’s not.'”
Jimmy Fallon also joked about Vice President Joe Biden pretending to be on his cell phone, and Hillary Clinton and the e-mail scandal that is in the news. She said that she had wanted to use one device for her personal e-mail and for official government business.
Fallon cracked jokes about the different positions that the GOP and Democrats took on exploring space. He took a few moments to “speak to the aliens in their own language.” Then, he said that the live-action version of Cinderella made $70 million — or, rather, the Frozen short that began it made $70 million.
Then, Jimmy Fallon showed a clip of Poland’s Minister of Defense mixing up his microphone with a light. Fallon said it would be useful telling ghost stories.
Jimmy Fallon said that tomorrow night, Jennifer Garner would be a guest, and later this week, Will Ferrell will also be a guest. Then, Fallon said that Jim Parsons, who does a voice on the animated movie, Home, will be one of his guests, and Miles Teller from Insurgent. Wiz Khalifa will be the musical guest.
After than, Jimmy Fallon did his comedy bit, called his “Do Not Read List.” All of the books, he said, are real books. The Official Guide to Outdoor Skating was one of the books. The second one was A Small book of Random Numbers. “At the end are a bunch of blank pages, in case you want to write notes,” Fallon said.
The third book Jimmy Fallon showed was The Other Flute, by Robert Dick. Then, he showed the book Will the World End in 2012? and What Do Roots Do?, a children’s book. Jimmy Fallon had put in the book a photo of James Posey from The Roots, and Fallon said “I guess they also make solo albums.”
Jimmy Fallon’s first guest on the Tonight Show was comedian Jim Parsons, who will also be in a play called “God.” Jimmy Fallon said “There are things we can talk about.” Fallon asked Jim Parsons if he had seen his impersonation of Parsons as Sheldon on the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Show. Jimmy Parsons said that he had been texted by friends that Jimmy Fallon was impersonating him.
Fallon said he really liked how Sheldon laughed on the show. “You mean like this?” Jim Parsons asked, and laughed like Sheldon. Fallon asked him to say “Bazinga!” also, which he did.
They talked about The Normal Heart, and then Jim Parsons said “And now, I’m going to play God.” The premise is that he says at the start of the show that he is God, but he has taken over the body of Jim Parsons. The play “God” will begin in May.
In Home, Rihanna and Steve Martin also do voices. “Isn’t he wonderful?” Parsons asked about Steve Martin. Jimmy Fallon showed a clip from the animated movie, Home. It looks like it will be an entertaining movie that the entire family will be able to enjoy.
Jim Parsons and Jimmy Fallon teamed up next against actor Miles Teller and hip-hop singer, Wiz Khalifa, to play Catchphrase. Fallon explained the rules, and the game was officially on. Miles went first, and he got Wiz to say “Wedgie.” Parsons got Jimmy Fallon to say “Flip Phone.” Miles got Wiz to say “Jumping Jacks.” Jimmy Fallon was caught holding the buzzer when it went off.
Next, Fallon tried to get Parsons to answer “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” which he did. Miles attempted to get Wiz to say “Shake It Off,” and was also successful. Miles and Wiz ended up winning the game. Check out the video, below!
After a commercial break on the Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon introduced his second guest of the evening, Miles Teller. Fallon thanked him for having played the game Catchphrase, and said that Miles starred in the movie Whiplash as well as the Divergent franchise of movies. “Can you grow a mustache?” Fallon asked him, comparing him to Justin Bieber.
“Everybody has his strengths,” Miles said. “I would love to be able to grow a thick, Tom Selleck-style mustache, but I physically can’t.”
Miles and Jimmy Fallon talked about a boxer that Miles played who had broken his neck in a car accident. Five days later, the boxer started working out, and went on to win a championship. Jimmy Fallon showed two photos of Miles, Before and After, which showed Miles looking all buff for his role as the boxer in an upcoming movie.
Jimmy Fallon said next time Miles comes on, he will “beat him at Beer Pong.” Then, Fallon showed a clip from the movie Insurgent. It will open this Friday, and by the clip, it looks like a Must See for fans of the books and movie franchise.
Jimmy Fallon introduced Wiz Khalifa singing See You Again. Charlie Puth was on the piano, and he really added a lot to the song. He began singing it, then Wiz sang a part, and Charlie sang another part in a falsetto voice. The song sounded pretty cool, and it is included on the Furious 7 soundtrack, according to Jimmy Fallon.
That was the conclusion of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Monday, March 16, 2015. Both Jim Parsons and Miles Teller have been on the Tonight Show numerous times, and they both always come through and are entertaining. Wiz Khalifa has been on before, as well, and he is one of the most talented hip-hop singers of today. Charlie Puth sounded kind of like Sam Smith as he sang See You Again with Wiz to wrap up a terrific Monday episode of the Tonight Show.
