Like any working actress, Susan Sarandon's dog tries hard to stay current. So now, she's entered the digital age, trying her hand – er, paw – at social media.
"She felt after she watched Melancholia that she had to reach out," The Big Wedding star joked on Thursday's visit to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon of why her Pomeranian/Maltese mix, Penny, decided to create a Twitter account. "She Tweets from where we are."

Earlier this week, NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno and Late Night host Jimmy Fallon engaged in a charming little skit – a duet of "Tonight" from West Side Story, with novelty lyrics that reflected the growing media speculation (bordering on certainty) that Leno would soon be forced to give his spot to Fallon.
Tonight, Tonight, why do they say we fight?
I like you, you like me, we're okay!
Tonight, Tonight, who cares who hosts Tonight?
People just watch online the next day
The unstated irony of this little song is that, at least in West Side Story, one of those singers ends up dead. Now we know which one.

This is no song and dance – like he did with Jimmy Fallon earlier this week.
Jay Leno, 62, is retiring from his 22-year job hosting NBC's Tonight Show, the network officially announced Wednesday.
NBC also said he will be succeeded, as expected, by Jimmy Fallon, 38, once Leno finishes out his contract in spring 2014. The show will also return to New York's 30 Rock. Johnny Carson had moved the show, which first premiered in 1954 (from Manhattan), west in 1972.

It had to happen. Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon, the former reportedly about to be replaced as Tonight show host by the latter, have come to blows. Blowing out their lungs in song, that is.
In a terrific and remarkably good-natured spoof that is getting high-profile play – not bad for anybody's ratings – Fallon's Late Night show opened on Monday night with his getting a call from Leno, who had just wrapped up his Tonight show.
"Hey, kid. How you holding up?" Leno, in L.A., asks Fallon, whose desk in his New York office is strewn with newspapers reporting the NBC late-night-host succession.
Fallon, 38, said he's okay and inquired how Leno, 62, was. "Yeah," says the 20-year Tonight veteran. "I'll live. I've been through this before, y'know. Got to admit, I'm a little sick of this."

Meet the four new hot chicks on the music scene.
For Thursday's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the talk-show host and his editor Chris Tartaro teamed up with Blake Shelton and Parks & Recreation's Nick Offerman to perform the Lumineers' hit song "Ho Hey" – with a twist. (Watch below.)
Clad in yellow chicken suits and calling themselves "The Chickeneers," the big birds let the feathers fly as they clucked and squawked along. Before you try to roast them, keep in mind they performed in perfect harmony. Clearly they were cooped up beforehand to rehearse and didn't just wing it.

The Harlem shake is out, mom dancing is in – and First Lady Michelle Obama is ready for her TV close-up.
Joining a drag-donning Jimmy Fallon on his NBC show Late Night Friday, Mrs. Obama, 49, broke it down for "The Evolution of Mom Dancing," promoting the third anniversary of her "Let's Move" anti-obesity campaign.
Although the pair easily got into the groove with such classics as "Go Shopping, Get Groceries," "Raise the Roof" and "Sprinkler," the first lady kicked it up a notch with "Just The Hands Part of Single Ladies," "Oh My God, I Love This Song" and "Driving the Station Wagon."

Lucy Liu got pie-eyed with Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night.
The always elegant actress, 44, now starring on the CBS crime drama Elementary, was a good sport as she joined the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon host for a messy game of "Rock, Paper, Scissors, Pie" – and ended up a gooey mess with her face covered with white cream.
Fallon, 38, also took a sweet wallop to the face as the segment placed the stars behind a cutout board – framing them as chefs – and exposed their faces and arms. They put their hands on a device whose handles, when clicked, could deliver an unexpected pie blast.

Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You," can be heard everywhere during the holiday season, but you've never seen it performed like this before!
Backstage before Tuesday night's taping of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Carey, her host and his backing band, the Roots, put a quirky spin on the pop star's holiday hit by performing the song using classroom instruments.
Adding to the adorable factor: a quartet of kids who pop up occasionally to sing backup.

Much of the East may have been without electrical power Monday night – as Hurricane Sandy exerted her strength and, in the words of The New York Times, left "a region crippled" – but one thing remained: star power.
NBC's Late Night host Jimmy Fallon took to 50th Street outside his Rockefeller Center studio in midtown Manhattan right before Sandy hit to record the introduction to his show.
Though he said there would be no live in-studio audience, "All of our guests came," said Fallon, "which was big for us. We were worried that we weren't going to get guests, but we got some good ones here."
