Stephen Colbert Throws an All-Star Daft Punk Dance Party

24 Jul

What do you do when Daft Punk is a no-show? Throw an all-star dance party to their hit, “Get Lucky,” without them, of course.

That’s what Stephen Colbert did on Colbert Report Tuesday, calling on the likes of Hugh Laurie, Jeff Bridges, Bryan Cranston, Jimmy Fallon, Matt Damon, the Rockettes, Jon Stewart (via satellite), the entire production of America’s Got Talent and even (inexplicably) former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to groove to “Get Lucky” in what will go down as one of the show’s greatest music videos.

Daft Punk, the enigmatic electro-pop duo, had to skip their scheduled performance on Colbert‘s summer concert series, StePhest Colbchella – “the anti-establishment, convention-destroying rock and roll ethos brought to you by Hyundai” – due to contractual obligations with Comedy Central’s sister network, MTV (read: Daft Punk at Video Music Awards!).

“You see, we booked Click and Clack over here about a month ago,” Colbert explained. “Apparently – and this is a deeply guarded secret, so shhh! – Daft Punk are going to make a surprise appearance on the MTV Video Music Awards – spoiler alert. Don’t tell anybody, because fun fact: No one told me until two o’ clock yesterday.”

After “Get Lucky” was all danced and done, Robin Thickeperformed his Song of the Summer, “Blurred Lines,” in Daft Punk’s place.

Jimmy Fallon and The Roots’ Sesame Street Performance with Elmo and Friends is Actually Pretty Amazing

29 Mar

Thank you, Jimmy Fallon, for bringing a smile to the child in all of us today.

The latest Late Night classroom instruments session has arguably put all other previous performances (sorry Mariah Carey, Robin Thicke and Carly Rae Jepsen) to shame.

On Wednesday night, the main cast of Sesame Street joined Fallon and the guys from The Roots for a very adorable rendition of the show’s beloved theme song.

The Count counted everyone in, naturally, while Abby Cadabby showed off her sweet rapping skills with The Roots’ Black Thought.

Big Bird had a solo, as did Elmo and Cookie Monster (who ate his instrument, a banana shaker).

Sesame Street kicked off its 44th season earlier this month.

Lindsay Lohan “Scrumps” with Jimmy Fallon Because Twerking is “So 2013″

Lindsay Lohan on Jimmy Fallon

Lindsay Lohan was a surprise guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night where she donned her tweeniest tights for his recurring sketch “Ew!”

Lohan and Fallon discussed all things ew including: rakes, Segways, Hamburger Helper and twerking. Dustin Hoffman, however, was deemed “cute.”

The two only broke character once, which is much better than the last time the two were in a sketch together.

We missed you, Lindsay!

Ben Affleck on Batfleck Backlash: ‘I Handle Sh*t’

2 Mar

No one was surprised when the Internet erupted with an onslaught of hate when news that Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in the new Man of Steel sequel. Well, no one except the actor himself.

The two-time Oscar winner sat down for an interview on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Monday night and spoke candidly about his reaction to the fallout from the casting announcement, saying that despite being a “big boy,” he still wasn’t prepared for just how harsh the Internet could be.

“[Warner Bros.] said, ‘Just don’t use the Internet for a couple days,’ and I said, ‘I handle sh*t. I’m very tough,'” he said. “So I saw the announcement, I look on this thing, I look down at the first comment – it’s like, ‘Ben Affleck is going to be Batman,’ – the first one just goes ‘Nooooooo!’

“So we’re going to be luddites for a while, kids,” Affleck added, chuckling.

But fans of Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight can breathe a sigh of relief as Affleck confirmed that his take on the Caped Crusader will be nothing like Christian Bale‘s.

“Obviously, you can’t do what Chris and Christian did,” he said. “Those movies are amazing, and he wanted to do something different and still in keeping with that. And so I thought, this is a brilliant way to do this, and I really want to hook into this.”

Don’t worry, Ben, at least you’ve got Joss Whedon and Matt Damon‘s support on this.

Some poor lucky soul was treated to a makeover by Bryan Cranston on Friday’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

And while that audience member’s face didn’t really show it, we’re pretty sure he knew just how lucky he was.

Cranston, 57, is the latest Hollywood celebrity to take part in Fallon’s sometimes weird, sometimes awesome sketch that involves platinum-blonde bob goodness, bright (almost too bright) spotlights and mystery makeover product.

Need a refresher on “Let Us Play With Your Look?”
