Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon are good friends and have been for years – Jimmy even
spoke did improv(?) at Justin’s wedding! – and they’re always doing stupid shit together. Of course, by stupid shit I mean funny shit. Last night hashtag skit on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon was no exception. I won’t even describe – you can just watch!
If Justin ever decides to give up his music and his ~serious acting~ careers, I really think he’d be a great comedic star. He’s got really good timing, isn’t afraid to be silly and is a total team player.
Also, the hashtag thing IS out of control. Seriously – one or two keywords about a trending topic is acceptable, but the overabundance of hashtags is a hot mess. What do you think – funny or not so much?

Jimmy Fallon and his wife, Nancy Juvonen, welcomed their baby girl Winnie Rose into the world a few weeks ago. And now he’s revealed that they welcomed her via surrogate. This explains why I was so surprised that a wild baby suddenly appeared. As he told the Today show (via Daily News),
It wasn’t really a secret, but my wife and I have been trying for a while to have a baby. And so we’ve tried a bunch of things. And so we had a surrogate. This time [trying to have kids], we just said we’re not telling anybody. It’d just be more fun if it was just private between me and my wife, and we get to introduce her to everybody. When it happened, we were shocked.
Good for them! Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick also used a surrogate. Juvonen is 46, which is perhaps why they decided to go with a surrogate, but Halle Berry is also 46 and is pregnant with a baby boy. So I guess it really depends on the individual. And science and shit. Biology.
People are also insisting that Beyoncé used a surrogate, but I’m not touching that one.

Jimmy Fallon is a new dad! His wife, Nancy Juvonen, just gave birth to their baby girl. Uh…what? Did anyone know she was pregnant? The happy couple had this to say, via their rep, from People via Daily News:
[They are] overjoyed about the arrival of their beautiful daughter.
As if they were going to say, “Goddamn this sucks.”
The couple have been married since 2007.
As always, I’m going to offer some great baby names they can take.
- Juanita James
- Lil’ Tina Fey
- Pinkie Pirate
- Koffii Tayble
- Sarah Jessica Parker
So suck it, George Jason Alexander Seinfeld Louis. You’re not the only new baby in town.

The important thing to take from this story is that you won’t have to look at Jay Leno‘s potato head anymore come 2014. That’s good news for everyone! How’s that coming to pass? Well, Jimmy Fallon is moving from Late Night to The Tonight Show in Jay’s place, and Late Night is being taken over by Seth Meyers from Saturday Night Live. I think Jimmy is hilarious, but Seth doesn’t do much for me. However, given that I’m in bed before the credits start on any of these shows, I don’t think it matters.
This change has been rumoured to be happening for a while now, but NBC confirmed it at upfronts on Friday. Here’s some quotes, courtesy of DS.
“I only have to work for Lorne for five more years before I pay him back for the time I totaled his car.
“12.30 on NBC has long been incredible real estate. I hope I can do it justice.”
NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt also reacted positively to the addition of Meyers to NBC’s weeknight late-night lineup, saying: “We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation.
“His years at SNL‘s ‘Weekend Update’ desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the Late Night franchise.”
I’m sure Seth will do just fine in that slot. Jimmy will be great in Leno’s as long as he keeps the spirit of his Late Night show going, because it’s pretty great and way more entertaining than Jay ever was in that spot (or is in his current one).

6Justin Timberlake Says Jimmy Fallon Interrupted His Wedding Speech, But It’s Okay Because They Then Did Improv Together
Justin Timberlake is funny, I’ll give him that – mostly all of his appearances on Saturday Night Live have been above par and he seems like he has a pretty good sense of humour, though they need to switch it up a bit and give him some new original sketches instead of rehashing the singing, costume-wearing salesman nonsense. I can’t complain about the Festrunk Brothers, because they’re hilarious.
But that’s neither here nor there. Justin is good pals with former SNL star Jimmy Fallon in real life, and the latter was one of the esteemed guests at Justin’s wedding to Jessica Biel, where he decided to start telling jokes in the middle of Justin’s wedding speech. In general, this would have been obnoxious and pretty rude, but because Jimmy’s a comedian and Justin thinks he’s one, too, they just started doing an improv bit together and everyone loved it! Hurrah!
Writing about Fallon for TIME Magazine‘s 100 Most Influential People article, Timberlake said:
Picture this: I’m in the heart of an impromptu speech at my wedding reception in front of 150 guests, pouring it out to my lovely new bride. You could hear a pin drop. I paused for just a moment in between thoughts. And then there was Jimmy, shouting a joke from his seat, sparking an improv between the two of us that went on for a good five or 10 minutes and had all our guests roaring with laughter. Interrupting the groom’s speech at the wedding reception? Cracking jokes when your buddy is looking desperately for the words to say that he hopes his wife will remember forever? It turned into a moment that everyone there will remember forever. Anyone else would have bombed on that stage. And then I would have kicked their ass.
But this was Jimmy Fallon.
He just can’t help himself. And neither can we.
I mean, I get it – I love jokes and Jimmy Fallon is pretty great, but if I was Jessica Biel and my husband was making a really emotional speech about our love or whatever bullshit happens at weddings, I’d be pretty pissed if someone started making jokes and starting a comedy bit. Then again, I like to be the center of attention, so maybe that’s just me.
“Real People, Fake Arms” is great, though (as is Steve Carell, who is a really nice guy, to boot):

OMG funniest thing all f-cking day. I’m not going to say it was the funniest thing all f-cking week, because the idea that Bristol Palin is so deluded that she thinks we’re going to follow her and “her fame” anywhere, whether it’s Alaska or Southern California, but it’s kind of up there.
This is a clip from Jimmy Fallon‘s show, on which he parodied a classic ‘He-Man’ episode with dubbed-over lines from 50 Shades of Grey. And it’s as hilarious as it probably sounds. Because ’50 Shades of Grayskull’? It’s sheer brilliance.
Also, wait a damn second here—is there *really* a line in this book that says, “I found some baby oil. Let me rub it on your behind”? Is there really?
