Zendaya Plays Charades, Talks 'Greatest Showman' Co-Star Zac Efron on 'The Tonight Show'

Billy Crudup joins the singer-actress and Fallon for the holiday-themed game.

Zendaya wasn't allowed to use her singing voice during her visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night (Dec. 11). In fact, she wasn't allowed to use her voice at all as she teamed up with Fallon in hopes of defeating actor Billy Crudup and The Roots' Black Thought for a spirited, holiday-themed game of charades.

Zendaya was up first — she went with the clue behind No. 3, her lucky number — and was tasked with acting out "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus." Success. Point: Fallon and Zendaya. 

Crudup struggled a bit, though, which was surprising seeing as acting is his day job. His clue was The Wedding Singer, and Black Thought looked baffled as Crudup marched down a fake aisle at a fake wedding. Ultimately, with three seconds left, Thought pulled the correct answer out of nowhere.

Before leaving Rockefeller Center, Zendaya sat down to chat with Fallon about her film, The Greatest Showman, and co-star Zac Efron, who sings in the movie about circus legend PT Barnum for the first time since his High School Musical days. The film was nominated for three Golden Globes on Monday (best original song; best motion picture, musical or comedy; and best performance by an actor in a motion picture, musical or comedy).

After congratulating the 21-year-old actress and singer, Fallon asked her about the training involved for the movie, which stars Hugh Jackman as the legendary circus icon. Zendaya animatedly divulged that the film's director had told her to prepare for trapeze rehearsals because he wanted to use a little of her stunt double as possible. 

The really good stuff came when Zendaya shared bloopers from filming with Efron.
