Jimmy Fallon and Will Smith on 'The Tonight Show'

Robert DeNiro, Lady Gaga, Lindsay Lohan and Mariah Carey were among the surprise guests on Jimmy Fallon's debut Tonight Show last night. The former Saturday Night Live star anchored his first show from New York and took the time to mock a "buddy" who bet him he would never land the job, prompting a host of famous faces to come out and honor the bet.

"To my buddy who said that I'd never be the host of The Tonight Show - and you know who you are - you owe me a hundred bucks, buddy," he said. DeNiro then walked through the curtains and handed the host a $100 bill, and was quickly followed by Tina Fey, Joe Namath, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Mariah - who appeared to pull her $100 from her cleavage - Tracy Morgan, Joan Rivers, Kim Kardashian, Seth Rogen, Lindsay , Sarah Jessica Parker, Mike Tyson, Gaga, and Stephen Colbert, who emptied $100 in pennies over Jimmy's head.

Jay LenoJay Leno has filmed his last ever episode of The Tonight Show.

The TV host wrapped filming on the chat show last night after over 20 years at its helm last night and fought back tears as he thanked viewers for their loyalty. "Boy this is the hard part... The first year of this show I lost my mom; the second year I lost my dad. Then my brother died and after that I was pretty much out of family. The folks here became my family. When people say to me, 'Hey, why don't you go to ABC, why don't you go to Fox?' - [but] I didn't know anybody over there. These are the only people I know," he said towards the end of the show.

The 63-year-old funny man was joined by a galaxy of stars for his last ever broadcast at the Burbank Studios in California, including Kim Kardashian and Billy Crystal, who led everyone in a comedic rendition of The Sound of Music's So Long, Farewell along with Jack Black, The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons and chat show legend Oprah Winfrey, who warbled the line "you really raised the bar if you were me you'd buy them all a car." Sheryl Crow came out at the end to finish the song.

Mike TysonMike Tyson wants a role on Downton Abbey.

The boxing legend wants to take on more acting roles since his retirement from the sport, and would love Julian Fellowes to write him a part in the British period drama set in the early 20th century. When asked whether he wanted to act more, Mike said, "I would. I'm coming to the West End soon for my one-man show, so maybe when I fly to the UK they'll give me a part on Downtown Abbey [sic]. I like that show. I'm sure they could give me a part."

The former world heavyweight champion found it tough reminiscing about the past for his new memoir, Undisputed Truth, and claims his childhood was harder to bear than the "good days" he spent in jail in the 90s in the intimate company of his female counselor. "There were some horrific things [in my childhood] that I did not enjoy. Jail was a lot easier ... I had a female counselor and we'd do it for a long time. I had some good days in there," Mike quipped.

John Oliver Wants Queen Elizabeth on ‘Daily Show’

John OliverJohn Oliver wants Queen Elizabeth to appear on The Daily Show.

The British-born comedian is set to take over the reins of the show from Jon Stewart for three months and revealed his ideal guest would be the 87-year-old monarch.

"I promise you I will do everything in my power to get Her Majesty the queen as a guest. If I can't get her, I will try to get Helen Mirren dressed as the queen. If that doesn't work, I'll get Senator Mitch McConnell and have him dressed as either the queen or Helen Mirren. If any one of those works out, I guarantee you will see the most awkward, borderline treasonous, yet memorable interview in the history of television," he wrote in the latest issue of GQ.

John also joked he plans to have all of his guests take an oath of allegiance to the British flag during his stint as host: "Each show will begin with a pledge of allegiance to the Union Jack. This is non-negotiable, and I think it'll help with the guest-booking. I'm looking forward to this summer. It's going to be one of the strangest experiences of my life, and I hope you'll share it with me. Think of it this way: It's still going to be everything you love about The Daily Show, just without the thing that you love most about it."


Emily Deschanel Wants New Girl Cameo with Sister Zooey

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, FOX, Gossip,

Emily and Zooey DeschanelEmily Deschanel wants to star with her sister Zooey in New Girl. The Bones actress has revealed she is planning to make a cameo appearance in her sibling's hit sitcom about hapless 20-something Jess Day, and would jump at the chance to join her on set as soon as she has some time off.

"Zooey played my cousin on an episode of Bones a couple of seasons ago and we've talked about me coming in to do New Girl. We shoot on the same lot, so if we weren't so busy it might be really easy to swing on by and play a part. It's hard to get a few hours off, let alone a couple of days to do her show. I watch every episode as soon as I can when I'm not working," she said.

Because the pair play polar opposite characters in their respective shows - Emily plays serious-minded forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennen - people assume they are different in real life, but the 36-year-old star thinks they share the same core values from growing up in the same family.

She even had fun hanging on set and filming with Ashton [Kutcher] and Jon [Cryer]," a source said.
