I first noticed Miles Teller as the adorable sidekick in the Footloose remake. With a bit of muscle packed on now, the 28-year-old goes from cute to smokin’ hot. It’s amazing what a little ripped action will do.
Teller underwent a body transformation to play five-time World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza in Bleed For This. Pazienza famously recovered after injuring himself in a near-fatal car accident in 1991. At the time, he was told he might never walk again. Not only did he get back on his feet but headed back into the ring also.
To achieve a fighter physique, Teller trained with Freddie Roach who’s also worked with boxer Manny Pacquiao. Check out below Miles debuting his new look on The Tonight Show.
One of the most popular segments on The Tonight Show feature the guests squaring off against Jimmy Fallon in a lip sync battle. Fallon takes his dog and pony show over to Spike TV for a brand new series hosted by LL Cool J and supermodel Crissy Teigen. Think RuPaul’s Drag Race Lip Sync For Your Life but with no drag queens.
Lip Sync Battle (catchy title LOL) will pit two celebrities performing two songs per episode. The audience ultimately picks the winner.
The network just dropped a brand new star-studded trailer featuring The Rock performing Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” Stephen Merchant channeling his inner “Dirrty” and Anna Kendrick tackling Jennifer Lopez’s “Booty.”
To sway votes her way, the Pitch Perfect actress brings out J. Lo for a surprise cameo. Kendrick’s opponent, John Krasinksi, has something special up his sleeves for a rebuttal. Find out below. Lip Sync Battle commences on April 2 on Spike TV.
While promoting her new album, Piece By Piece, in stores now, Kelly Clarkson claimed she had problems convincing other musicians to duet with her. Initially, media outlets took her comments seriously. As it turns out, the 32-year-old American Idol winner was only joking.
If there was ever any ounce of truth to her comments though, at least she can always call on Jimmy Fallon. Clearly, the Tonight Show host is a fan. He enlisted Clarkson to perform a medley of the greatest duets in history on last night’s show.
Their performance included covers of Sonny and Cher‘s “I Got You Babe,” Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton‘s “Islands in the Stream,” Human League‘s “Don’t You Want Me,” Elton John‘s “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” and Paula Abdul‘s “Opposites Attract.”
My favorite of the bunch was of Aaron Neville and Linda Ronstadt‘s “Don’t Know Much.” It was all about Jimmy’s bang-on impression of Neville. Check out the entire thing below.
THIS.IS.EVERYTHING!!! No exaggeration. Waking up to this made getting out of bed much easier this morning.
Christina Aguilera dropped by The Tonight Show to promote her return to The Voice. During her appearance, she played a rousing game of ‘Wheel of Musical Impressions‘ with Jimmy Fallon.
As luck would have it (producer manipulation *wink*), the wheel landed on Britney Spears on the 34-year-old singer’s turn. She delivered a spot-on impersonation of Spears singing “This Little Piggy” to the tune of “(Hit Me) Baby One More Time.” It’s so good it blew Fallon’s mind.
X-Tina also delivered amazing impressions of her Burlesque co-star Cher and her fellow Voice judge Shakira singing the Folgers Coffee jingle and the Golden Girls theme song respectively. Definitely check out the clip below. It’ll make your day.
NBC went a little overboard with its special celebrating Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary. If you count the hour-long red carpet special, the entire tribute clocked in at four and a half hours. Mind you, the last hour was filled mostly with commercials, but still. A tad overkill.
With that being said, there were plenty of memorable moments from a star-studded roster including SNL alums Tina Fey, Kristen Wiig, Jane Curtain, Amy Poehler, Dana Carvey, Mike Myers, Martin Short, Steve Martin, Adam Sandler and plenty more fan favorites. They were joined by A-list stars such as Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Kerry Washington, Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Douglas, Sean Hayes, Melissa McCarthy and Taylor Swift to name just a few.
Throughout the night, Lorne Michaels and company resurrected popular skits including Celebrity Jeopardy once again featuring an inappropriate Sean Connery, Maya Rudolph as Beyonce and Mike Myers and Dana Carvey reuniting for Wayne’s World. Another highlight saw Jane Curtain joining Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Weekend Update anchor desk.
The two most disappointing moments was the N Sync reunion that was rumored but never happened and Eddie Murphy’s awkward return to his former stomping grounds. Talk about underwhelming.
Check out my favorite moments below which includes Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake’s sensational opening number referencing SNL’s most iconic moments from the past four decades. Be sure to weigh in afterward on your favorite and least favorite moments.
Once again, Jimmy Fallon has proven NBC execs right with their decision to bestow The Tonight Show chair upon him. The 40-year-old late night host consistently entertains with his charming skits and antics.
In honor of The Tonight Show returning to Los Angeles since Jay Leno left, Fallon parodies one of the most beloved and memorable theme songs of the 90s- The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. With the aid of DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro, Jimmy films a bang-on recreation. Definitely watch it out below, especially if you’re a fan of Ribeiro doing his signature Carlton dance.
Love, love, love both these ladies. While most of primetime was in rerun mode due to Thanksgiving, late night provided some original programming. Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Lawrence popped up on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman’s Late Show respectively, Thursday night.
Underwood joined Rashida Jones and Fallon as they performed a holiday medley. Instead of using traditional Yuletide tracks, the trio mashed up some of the year’s biggest pop hits including “Roar,” “Blurred Lines,” and “Royals” but with altered lyrics. Carrie belted lines like “You made me cook a butterball. And then a green bean casserole,” to the tune of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball.” Just like Miley’s AMAs performance, a giant kitten appeared on the screen behind her.
Meanwhile over at CBS, Lawrence along with Jonah Hill, Vince Vaughn, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Martha Stewart recited Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s infamous crack apology. As you recall, Ford recently admitted to smoking crack and made a series of inappropriate remarks. Oh, Canada! Check out both clips below.
The latest public appearance in Lindsay Lohan’s image rehabilitation tour (2013 edition) took place on Late Night. The 27-year-old actress showed off her comedic skills with Jimmy Fallon during his “Ew” sketch. Lindsay’s appearance reminded me how awesome most of her skits on Saturday Night Live were. Hopefully, Lorne Michaels invites her back soon.
One of the highlights on last night’s bit included Fallon’s female alter ego asking Lilo if she had seen Miley Cyrus’ twerking video. “EW,” she replies and says that “twerking is so 2-0-1-3″ and it’s all about scrumping nowadays. What’s scrumping you say? Watch the video below and find out.
