Andrew Garfield Belts Out the 'Spider-Man' Theme Song With Jimmy Fallon (Video)

He can scale tall buildings and swing through the air with ease, but can Spider-Man sing or ride a tiny motorcycle? These were the challenges that the film's star faced on Thursday's "Tonight Show."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Andrew Garfield showed off his many special skills when he joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Thursday. 

Set to host the upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live, Garfield confessed that he was nervous about going on the show. "I was really dreading it earlier. It's a nightmare and is deeply, deeply terrifying."

To battle stage fright, Fallon encouraged the actor to sing and play guitar, knocking out a tuneful rendition of the Spider-Man theme song. "This is the first time I've ever sung in public," he admitted, as Fallon broke out a tambourine to accompany him.

Next, in true superhero style, the pair embarked on a speedy race around the studio on miniature motorcycles, with Fallon on a Green Goblin-colored machine.

Later on the show, 24: Live Another Day star Mary Lynn Rajskub revealed how she recently had to hold her tongue when a cop pulled her over for an expired registration and the officer told her: "My friends call me Jack Bauer!" As for 24, "It is kind of like Spider-Man," she joked, adding that her character Chloe is in a "very bad way."

Fallon also introduced some horses that won't be running in Saturday's Kentucky Derby, airing on NBC, called Last Place, Conscious Uncoupling and Actually a Camel. The Roots went on to play some of their favorite Derby-inspired raps based on tweets from fans. 

On CBS, Louis C.K. shows his affection for David Letterman in a unique way: "I'm happy for Stephen Colbert, and he's my friend. But the fact that you are leaving sucks balls."

On ABC, Jimmy Kimmel mocked controversial Clippers owner Donald Sterling -- but had even harsher words for his celebrity "nemesis" Matt Damon. Damon, when pressed during a cable news interview, agreed that he would consider buying a tiny stake in the Clippers should investors invite him to do so.

"I'm not going to stand by and let Matt Damon buy the Clippers. Let's not forget how bad it went when the guy bought a zoo," Kimmel said, adding Damon was "banned for life" from his show.

Like his fellow late-night hosts, Seth Meyers joked about Toronto mayor Rob Ford going into rehab. "It is the first time someone has said they are going to rehab and rehab has said 'no, no, no,' " he joked, asking if Ford was getting treatment for crack or gravy addiction. 

Late Night also rejoiced in the return of Jack Bauer with guest Kiefer Sutherland, who said it took "all of 15 minutes" to persuade him to resume his role.
