Jimmy Fallon Plays Charades With Bradley Cooper, Emma Thompson (Video)
Jimmy Fallon is still up to his old Late Night tricks.
The new Tonight Show host convinced Bradley Cooper, Tim McGraw, and surprise guest Emma Thompson to play a game of charades on Wednesday's episode.
Thompson burst onto the scene shouting that she was there to rescue Fallon.
"I heard your first week's been a f---ing disaster!" she told him, who insisted she was wrong.
Then the game started. First, Thompson failed to get Cooper to guess "Walk Like an Egyptian." He got sort of close when he guessed "Walking the Casbah?" Next, Fallon valiantly pantomimed bobsledding while smoking a joint, but McGraw failed to guess the 1993 comedy Cool Runnings. McGraw's best guess? Forrest Gump – because Fallon began his turn by running.
"Jeez Louise " said an exasperated Cooper when he drew the CW's The Vampire Diaries as his clue. But Thompson nailed it, even after protesting that she didn't watch American television.
Next McGraw got Fallon to guess The Wolf of Wall Street after howling, and then it went to a charades showdown, with Fallon and Thompson each striving to get their teammates to guess "Drunk in Love" by Beyonce. Cooper nearly won it all by guessing "Drunk With Love," but McGraw sopped in and give the correct answer.
Earlier, Fallon debuted a new volume of his #Hashtag sketch. The original featured Fallon and Justin Timberlake talking almost exclusively in hashtags, and the updated version featured Jonah Hill and Martin Scorsese in a surprise walk on role.
Fallon is off to a good start in the ratings. Fallon's second Tonight Show enjoyed strong ratings, making it the most watched Tuesday episode since 2000.
