Harry Potter's Alan Rickman and Jimmy Fallon Laugh It Up – on Helium! – on The Tonight Show

Originally posted 06/18/2015 12:30PM

Harry Potter fans, rejoice!

Professor Snape, a.k.a. actor Alan Rickman, stopped by The Tonight Show on Wednesday to talk about his movie A Little Chaos – and put the late-night host in the hot seat.

The Harry Potter actor called out Fallon for the time he and Benedict Cumberbatch did an impression of him on the show – a "Rickmanoff," as it was called. To get Fallon to admit to his ways, Rickman took a page from the Helen Mirren playbook and busted out a truth serum of sorts: helium balloons, which he referred to as "Jimmy Fallon truth-telling machines."

[YOUTUBE "i5GMhGpk5jY"] A day after announcing his run for the presidency in 2016, Jeb Bush appeared on The Tonight Show, but instead of sitting down for a hard-hitting interview, he followed in the footsteps of President Barack Obama and slow-jammed the news.

"You gotst to listen to my man, Jebediah. He's got lots of experience down South," Fallon sang in a segment full of innuendo and double entendres, as the former governor of Florida explained why he'd decided to run and how he would lead the country.

[EMBEDCODE {

}] The game of Catchphrase was even funnier than usual when Marlon Wayans joined Amanda Seyfried, Jason Derulo and Jimmy Fallon in a segment on Friday's Tonight Show.

After joking that he and partner Derulo (who were dressed in matching monochromatic suits) should be in a R&B group called Angel & Devil, the comedian and host of I Can Do That found himself stumped by a clue.

"Okay, I don't know what this is," he said. "White guys get this when they go skiing. Black people don't get this. We was born this way."
