Kicking off the week with some promotional duties, Tom Cruise headed over to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to plug his new movie “Mission: Impossible- Rogue Nation” on Monday night (July 27).
The 53-year-old “Minority Report” hunk was in fine form as he chatted about the possibility of a “Top Gun” sequel before getting into an epic Lip Sync Battle against Fallon.
He’s been away on medical leave for the past two weeks, and last night (July 13) Jimmy Fallon returned to his post at “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” with quite the crazy tale.
The “Saturday Night Live” alum told the audience that he injured his finger after falling at his New York City apartment and it was so serious he almost had to have it amputated, remaining in the ICU for a long 10-day stay.
There’s bad news if you had tickets to see “The Tonight Show” tonight (June 26) as Jimmy Fallon has cancelled the taping due to a last-minute surgical procedure.
The former “Saturday Night Live” star’s rep issued a statement, explaining, “Jimmy Fallon was required to have minor surgery after injuring his hand at his Manhattan apartment this morning. He is expected to make a full recovery.”
It’s been an amazing year for Jimmy Fallon, given his overwhelmingly successful takeover of “The Tonight Show,” and now Entertainment Weekly has given him an esteemed honor. The popular publication has declared that Fallon is the Entertainer of the Year thanks to his knack for viral pranks and creative contests.
According to EW, "He sang karaoke with Emma Stone, did the Stanky Legg with Will Smith, landed a song with will.i.am on the Hot 100 chart, staged a drum-off between Will Ferrell and a Red Hot Chili Pepper, and exposed Daniel Radcliffe as a skilled rapper. All that’s just from the first page of The Tonight Show’s most popular YouTube videos, where each clip has at least 10 million views..."
