Harry, is that you?
The parade of A-listers wishing new Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon good luck continued Tuesday with one of Britain's hottest boy banders.
Harry Styles stopped by for a chat with Fallon – or rather, Kristen Wiig did. The Saturday Night Live legend impersonated the pop singer for a hilariously unscripted interview.
The Bridesmaids star, wearing a v-neck T-shirt, stylish suit and wild wig, spoke in her normal voice and struggled to answer Fallon's interview questions.
"Your accent is different in person," Fallon noted. "Because you know, you're not from America."
"I'm from … England!" Wiig replied with some coaxing.

It seems not everyone predicted Jimmy Fallon's ascendency to The Tonight Show.
During his first show Monday, Fallon said, "To my buddy who said I'd never be the host of The Tonight Show – and you know who you are – you owe me a hundred bucks, buddy."
That prompted a seemingly never-ending string of stars to come out and begrudgingly pay Fallon his $100.

A nervous-looking Jimmy Fallon took to the NBC Tonight Show stage Monday night, but quickly warmed up with the help of family and some famous friends.
"I really don't know how I got here," Fallon, 39, said during a sentimental opening monologue for his first night at the helm of the legendary show.
"I remember asking my parents to stay up late to watch Johnny Carson," said Fallon, whose mom and dad waved and blew kisses from the audience. "I can just think there's some kid asking their parents to stay up to watch me."
After introducing himself to the 240-person audience, the former SNL cast member and Late Show host, backed by his house band The Roots, gave a shout-out to wife Nancy Juvonen and infant daughter Winnie, who were backstage, before warning the audience, "I'll make fun of everybody on this show."

What do mom-dancing, hashtags and children's instruments have in common? They're all topics that Jimmy Fallon, with his one-of-a-kind ingenuity and enthusiasm, was able to mine for big laughs – and, once they hit the Web, big views.
Possibly more than any other show, Fallon's Late Night understood the science of making comedy bits go viral. The formula was easy to explain, but hard to master: Take a celebrity, give him or her a trending topic and find a cutesy, nostalgic spin, then hopefully watch the views roll in.
In honor of Fallon's assumption of the Tonight Show throne Monday night, enjoy this side-splitting collection of some of his most-viewed sketches:

Before Fallon brings his shenanigans to The Tonight Show on Feb. 17, let's celebrate the Late Night bits that really delivered the laughs.
