The Tonight Show had some amazing guests on tonight, as Jimmy Fallon welcomed and interviewed Rebel Wilson from Pitch Perfect 2, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, one of the stars of Mad Max: Fury Road. Fallon and Rebel Wilson played the Whisper Challenge game later in the episode. The musical guest of the Tonight Show this Hump Day was Faith No More.
Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon, talked about what a great audience it was tonight, and he then did his monologue. Fallon made jokes about topics such as the “DeflateGate” scandal Tom Brady is involved in. “The White House encouraged Tom Brady to be more of a role model,” Fallon said.
Fallon joked about the Republicans in Congress having blocked Obama’s Trade Bill. Fallon said they do not care about it because “they have already found jobs as Presidential candidates.”
Jimmy Fallon said “It has just been confirmed that President Obama’s Presidential Library will be built in Chicago instead of Hawaii, as Chicago was where he became a man.”
Then, Fallon said that “At NBC, there will be a new show based on Dolly Parton’s song, ‘Coat of Many Colors.'” Fallon mentioned about a list of places Willie Nelson has gotten stoned, like on the roof of the White House when President Carter was in office. He started to say all of the places on the long list, but he gave up, as there were too many places where the singer has gotten stoned.
At his desk, Jimmy Fallon mentioned that Queen Latifah and Snoop Dogg will be on later this week. Rebel Wilson will be on tonight, from Pitch Perfect 2, and they will play the Whisper Challenge game. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, from the flick, Mad Max: Fury Road, will also be a guest, and the musical guest will be Faith No More singing a song off of their upcoming album, Sol Invictus, called Superhero.
Then, in a segment called “Tonight Show Dictionary,” Jimmy Fallon mentioned words and their new definitions. Some of them follow. One was “Artesian.” The new definition was “grass-fed pickles.” The new definition of “Deflategate” was what happened to the Bouncy House in Chris Christie’s yard. The new definition of “Jealousy” Fallon said is “The only reason people write ‘I’m so happy for you,’ on Facebook.” Then, he said “The new definition of ‘Selfie Stick’ is an invention that makes it obvious why you have no friends.”
After a break, Jimmy Fallon introduced Rebel Wilson. “I’m happy that you are here.” Fallon told her.
Rebel said “I heard that you tried an Australian delicacy, Vegemite. I brought you another one to try, koala poopy.” Fallon tried some. It was really some sort of chocolate. He then held up a copy of Elle magazine, with Rebel’s photo on the cover.
Rebel talked about eating Mexican food in her hotel in New York, and she did not know that she was supposed to tip the room service guy. She said that she chipped one of her teeth on a tortilla chip, exposing a fang behind it.
Jimmy Fallon and Rebel talked about Pitch Perfect 2. “I did all of my own aerial stunts in the film,” Rebel told Fallon. “I trained for five weeks just to do the opening part of the film. I was 25 feet in the air. They filmed it on one of the last days, in case I died.” She told Fallon that she had been in a production of Fiddler On the Roof, and she fell off of the roof, and sprained both of her ankles.
Jimmy Fallon showed a clip from the movie. Rebel was with the other Kapas sitting around a campfire, and said something about having been or possibly wanting to be a “professional Jello wrestler.” Pitch Perfect 2 looks like it should be a big box office hit.
Back from the break, they both played the Whisper Challenge game. One of them would wear headphones while the other one would say something off of a card. The person wearing the headphones would have to guess what was said. “Deflated Balls” was the first one that Fallon read off. Rebel got somewhat close to what Fallon said, but she did not get it correct.
“Forklift Driver” was the phrase that Rebel Wilson tried to get Jimmy Fallon to say. He did not even come close. Then, Fallon said “Wiz Khalifa.” Remarkably, Rebel Wilson got it correct, right on her first guess.
When the Tonight Show returned from a break, Jimmy Fallon showed the cover of Self magazine, with a photo of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on it. They talked about Rosie’s boyfriend, Jason Statham, having been on the show.
Fallon said he was laughing so hard when Jason Statham was on the Tonight Show that he cried. Fallon told Rosie he wanted her boyfriend to teach him how to speak Cockney. He said he was going to ask Jason some words and phrases. Rosie told him she would teach him some phrases, but Fallon seemed to get even more confused when she tried.
They talked about the movie that Huntington-Whiteley was in, Mad Max: Fury Road. They shot much of the movie in Namibia, Africa, she told him. “It turned out to be fantastic,” Fallon told her. He said that the site, Rotten Tomatoes, gave it a score of “98 percent fresh.” He introduced a clip from it with Rosie in it, and it looks like it will be a thrilling, action-packed movie.
Following even more commercials, when the Tonight Show came back on, Jimmy Fallon introduced the night’s musical guests, Faith No More. They sang Superhero from their latest upcoming album, Sol Invictus. The band members were dressed all in white, like maybe mental sanitarium employees. They ROCKED OUT, the lead singer shouting out many of the lyrics. It was hard rock, but set to a melodic harmony. They gave an AMAZING performance, and the keyboardist was impressive — the drummer kept up a pounding, driving beat; they simply KILLED tonight with their performance.
The Tonight Show was very entertaining tonight, with Fallon interviewing and joking around with his guests, actress and comedienne Rebel Wilson from Pitch Perfect 2 and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, from Mad Max: Fury Road. The heavy metal band, Faith No More, brought their brand of intense rock to Fallon’s studio audience to close out the night.
