A step up?

Jimmy Fallon has moved on from throwing super-sized balls at Julia Roberts to rolling them across a giant pool table with Wolverine.

On Wednesday, the Tonight Show host challenged guest Hugh Jackman to a jumbo game of pool. In this match, the guys used their hands instead of cues to knock bowling balls into the pockets of Fallon's sprawling pool table.



Although the newly clean-shaven actor tried his hardest to beat Fallon – even attempting to cheat – in the end, the host ended up besting Jackman.

While this game may seem like one of Fallon's own wacky creations, giant pool was actually invented in 2008 by a Missouri man and is formally known as Knokkers.

Watch Jackman and Fallon's entire Knokkers face-off below.
