The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon has some great guests this Tuesday, October 28! The first guest that Jimmy Fallon interviewed was the Harry Potter actor, the brilliant Daniel Radcliffe (Horns)! Jimmy played a game called Alphabet Aerobics with Radcliffe later in the show, in which Daniel unleashed his Inner Rap God. The second guest of the night was the retired boxing great turned actor, Mike “Iron Mike” Tyson! Then, the Tonight Show‘s musical guest, towards the end of the show, was Sturgill Simpson.

Jimmy Fallon walked onto the stage and warmly welcomed his studio audience, who gave him a standing ovation, as they often do. Then, Fallon launched into his monologue. what follows are a few jokes from it.

“I saw that Chris Christie has not Tweeted about anything but Ebola since last Tuesday. He has people in New Jersey so scared, they want him to close the Washington Bridge,” Falon joked

Continuing, Fallon said “We’re not the only ones worried about this thing. North Korea said that they were closing their borders, too.”

“Starbucks is coming out with a new drink next month,” Jimmy Fallon stated. “That’s right, Chestnut Praline Latte. It sounds like a stripper’s name.’

Fallon said that “Taylor Swift announced she would become New York City’s new Tourism Ambassador. Along with Swift’s new job, she is saying she loves New York; no, wait — she hates New York — she says ‘We will never, ever get back together.'”

“Finally,” Fallon said, “last night was another episode of Dancing With the Stars. You can almost feel their pain,” Fallon said, showing a clip from rehearsal as one of the dancers got hit in a delicate region of his anatomy. The female dancing with him said “What do you need, a snack?’

Then, Jimmy Fallon asked people to use the hashtag #Fallon Costume and post photos of them in their costumes. he told the audience who some upcoming guests would be, and also said that Daniel Radclife would be on talking about his latest movie, Horns. Also, Mike tyson will be playing “something Nintendo -y” later in the show with Jimmy Fallon. He said that his musical guest would be Sturgil Simpson, and he played a little bit off of Simpson’s latest album.

“It’s time for Pros & Cons. Tonight, it’s the Pros & Cons of Dressing Up Your Pet for Halloween. Pro: Pets love to wear costumes. Con: Which is why they squirm and growl when you try to put on their costumes. Pro: Getting to see your dog at a party with a lot of other dogs in their costumes. Con: Your dog saying ‘That bi**h stole my costume.’ Pro: Hearing someone say ‘Ah, that dog looks cute dressed up like ET.’ Con: Telling them that that’s not your dog, that’s your son, and he’s not dressed in a costume.” There were more, but that was some of the Pros & Cons Fallon mentioned. Then, the Tonight Show went to a commercial break.

When the Tonight Show returned, Jimmy Fallon introduced Daniel Radcliffe. Starting Friday, Daniel’s latest film Horns, will be in theaters and On Demand. “You’re looking great,” Fallon said. “Your movie Horns is opening on Halloween. Is Halloween popular in England?”

“No, but it’s starting to be. I’ve never gone trick-or-treating in my life,” he siad.

Jimmy Fallon then showed two pictures of cliffs, both with Daniel’s face on them — one was how he ordinarily looks, called Daniel Boring-cliffe; one where he had wild sunglasses and was dressed funkily, and was called Daniel Rad-cliffe.”

Fallon complimented Daniel on his American accent in Horns, and said he had read that Radcliffe learned the accent from the WWF. Daniel said “When I re-created the Royal Rumble with my wrestling action figures, I gave them the appropriate accents. I feel like I grew up in the Golden Age of wrestling, really. The Rock was always my favorite. I hope that Dwayne Johnson and I are in a movie someday.”

He even said that he was given a T-shirt from Dwayne saying he was his Number One Fan. They talked about the sort of movie that Radcliffe and Dwayne Johnson might both might possibly ever be in, then they talked about the movie Horns.

“It’s a horror movie, but it’s also very funny,” Radcliffe said. “My girlfriend has been murdered, and the next morning, I waked up with devil horns growing out of my head. Everybody thinks that I committed the murder.”

The horns give him some special powers, as we see in a clip of Horns that Fallon shows. If Radcliffe suggests, for instance, that people who are annoying him start hitting each other, then that is what they do. It is, from all accounts, a pretty amazing movie.

Back from another commercial break, Jimmy Fallon and Daniel Radcliffe played a cool game called Alphabet Aerobics. Jimmy asked him about being a music fan, and a big rap fan, and Radcliffe said “I’ve always had an obsession with memorizing fast songs wiht complicated lyrics.” So, Radcliffe rapped the song Alphabet Aerobics.

He was feakin’ AMAZING! Behind him, Fallon had the letters of the alphabet and he would remove one letter at a tiem as Radcliffe used words beginning wiht htose letters. The Roots kept playing faster and faster, and Radcliffe easily kept up, singing at a very fast pace — he ROCKED THIS SONG OUT!

The second guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon was boxing legend Mike Tyson. His new show, Mike Tyson Mysteries, debuted on the Adult Swim on The Cartoon Network yesterday. Give it up for “Iron Mike” Tyson!” Fallon said that he always tried to get Tyson to dance when he came out. He asked Tyson if he had costumes ready for his family for Halloween, and he said “Yeah, we got Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, we got Frozen…”

Fallon showed him a photo of a Jack O’Lantern someone had carved that was supposed to look like Tyson. Then, Jimmy Fallon talked to him about the sort of costumes Tyson wore as a child compared to the ones of today. Fallon related about when he had dressed up like Batman as a boy and tried to jump off of a stump, and the costume “just ripped.”

At one point in the conversation, Tyson said “I got Trick-Or-Treat confused with Christmas. And that happened when I was sober.” Fallon then showed the paperback version of Tyson’s autobiography, and talked about it having an extra chapter, after he had done a one-man play and he added more information to the book.

“Now, look– it’s almost Christmastime,” Fallon said.

He showed Tyson a copy of the game Mike Tyson Punch-Out, and Fallon said he thought it would be an amazing thing to see Mike Tyson play Mike Tyson and try to beat him. Jimmy Fallon wanted to see how long it would take for Tyson to beat Tyson. Mike Tyson got in some good hits, but — Mike Tyson beat Mike Tyson. Oh, well…

The Tonight Show went to yet another commercial break, and then Jimmy introduced the musical guest of the night, the country singer Sturgill Simpson. Earlier, Jimmy Fallon compared him to Willie Nelson, Waylong Jennings, Johnny Cash, and other “Old School” types of country singers. “His latest album is MetaModern Sounds in Country Music — here he is performing Turtles All the Way Down, country musician, Sturgill Simpson!”

The title of the album and song might seem to be a bit odd, but it was a really terrific song and sounded like a genuine “Old School” sort of country song, despite the title of it. There are nine songs on the album, and the first song on it is the one he performed on the Tonight Show, Turtles All the Way Down. Sturgil Simpson was a fantastic musical guest, and did a great job closing out this episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon had a pretty cool Tuesday night episode, with a couple of the biggest celebs around, Daniel Radcliffe and the boxing great, Mike Tyson. Despite Mike’s image having gotten tarnished over the years, he is undeniably still one of the most recognized sporting greats of all time and he was one tough dude when he was in his prime. The musical guest of the evening fit in well with the episode, also, and if the rest of his album is as good as the song he sang, it should be a hot seller.
