Glenn Close Sumo Wrestles Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (VIDEO)

Glenn Close, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'If you had a show and were going to have an actor of the caliber of Glenn Close on, what would you do? If you answered "dress her up in an oversized sumo costume and fight her," then you're probably Jimmy Fallon. And yet, it's hilarious to see these crazy things all the time on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

In many ways, Fallon has created one of the most unpredictable shows on television. If you'd have told us we'd be on the edge of our seats during a sumo wrestling match between Fallon and Close a week ago, we wouldn't have believed you.

Even better was after the match when neither of them could get up without assistance. It wasn't as sophisticated a victorious moment for Close as her Emmy wins, as she had to celebrate this win flat on her back, rolling a bit from side to side. But the whole thing was certainly entertaining.

This reminds me of the good old days when Steve Allen knew how to make late night talk shows fun to watch.

Great to see Glen Close doing something out of character while at the same time seeing her really enjoying the experience. I'll have to watch Jimmy Fallon more often even though it means going to bed an hour later.
