The musician also talked about his acting role in Christopher Nolan's World War II film 'Dunkirk.'

He's only 23, but Harry Styles is an old hand at late-night TV. 

The British pop singer sat for a chat with Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show and, as he did during his weeklong residency on James Corden's Late Late Show, cheekily angled for the boss' job.

During their back-and-forth, the pair discussed Styles' role in Christopher Nolan's WWII epic Dunkirk, and Fallon coaxed his guest into making a wish by blowing into a so-called magical jade bottle, a gift from Stevie Nicks.

After a pause for effect, Styles squeezed some air into the vessel and cast his spell. Job done. The girls in the audience screamed and, like magic, Fallon clutched his chest and went down. The ex-One Direction heartthrob seized the moment and snatched the vacant seat. And yes, it was all a big set up. Fallon bounced back as he always does. Check it out below.
