Jay Mohr Thinks the Kardashian Wedding Was Awkward for the Guests (VIDEO)

Jay Mohr, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Everyone seems to be talking about Kardashians these days. With Rob on 'DWTS' and Kim's recent nuptials, it's like they're our own Royal Family. But don't tell Jay Mohr we said that, or he'd go into another tirade like he did on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

"I don't think Kate Middleton is famous because she made a sex tape with Ray J," he said in argument against the Kardashian's being America's new "royals."

It was a rather bizarre and twisted road to fame for Kim Kardashian and her clan, but we've made them famous now and for that Kim's wedding was a spectacle and is now the talk of the town. For all Mohr seems to despise the very notion, here he was feeding the media frenzy.

Jeremy Piven, 'The Tonight Show'The last time Jeremy Piven appeared on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), he played a prank on one of the pages -- who did remind us a bit of Kenneth from '30 Rock' -- that had the poor guy standing in the hall terrified.

Piven pretended to have a full-blown Hollywood superstar tantrum about there being sushi in his dressing room. But afterward he felt bad about it, so he decided to help the guy out with his dreams of being in show business.

He pulled some strings down at 'Entourage' and managed to get the guy a part on the show, and it is definitely something to see. Jay Leno managed to squeeze in the page's entire scene during 'The Tonight Show,' with an arrow to help us identify him. Taking Hollywood by storm, this guy!

Ryan Reynolds Tried for Chivalry, Nearly Got Sexual Assault With Olivia Wilde (VIDEO)

Ryan Reynolds, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Sex scenes are uncomfortable for everyone involved. That's why when you see one that you believe, you know you're looking at some really good acting. It's even more intimidating when you're acting opposite one of Hollywood's hottest "it" girls, as Ryan Reynolds was. He talked on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) about how he made that experience even worse.

"I'm trying not to look at her like a 14-year old boy who just won the lady lottery," he said of the moment when Olivia Wilde put his hands on her breasts for their scene in 'The Change-Up.' He was a little nervous, and admitted his palms were sweaty. Apparently, a little too sweaty.

Matt LeBlanc, 'The Tonight Show'Matt LeBlanc's mother raises a good point. She's been staying at his house and was there the morning the Emmy nominations were announced, and it was a very early morning, according to LeBlanc on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

Because the calls started coming in at 5:30AM local time for him, he stepped out into the back yard to try and keep from waking his mother, but that didn't work out so well. She poked her head out, thinking it was an earthquake or something.

"No," LeBlanc assured her. "I got nominated for an Emmy."

Chris Tucker, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Chris Tucker once traveled to Africa with then-President Bill Clinton. But it was his impression of the president that led to a lifelong friendship. An impression Clinton apparently forced Tucker to perform for foreign dignitaries, according to what he told Jay Leno on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

Everyone who dabbled in comedy during the '90s had a Bill Clinton impression, and Clinton overheard Chris Tucker and Kevin Spacey doing theirs on this African trip. He absolutely loved it, asking them to do it for him constantly.

"It'd be in front of the president of Nigeria, and I'd be scared if I mess up I might go to jail in the country or something," Tucker said of when Clinton used to ask him to perform for other people.

Shaun White Jokes That He Got Serious Air in a Rally Car Stunt (VIDEO)

Shaun White, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Shaun White is pretty excited about this partnership he has underway with BF Goodrich. They're teaching him how to be a race car driver. But White will always be a board guy, which means tricks. So he told Jay Leno on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) about one he performed recently in a rally car.

He talked about some of the stunts he'd done, including getting some air once. When Leno asked him how much air we're talking about, White responded, "It felt pretty big. I went pretty far. I mean, I was flooring it."

Sounds impressive, right? Well, Leno had the footage, and obviously the experience inside the car was a little different to what the camera saw from the outside. We particularly enjoyed the "slo-mo" take, so we wouldn't miss a second of his aerial maneuvers!

Jessica Alba & Sue Johanson, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Jessica Alba is late in her pregnancy, so she took the opportunity to talk to renowned sex educator Sue Johanson on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). Her concern was one shared by many couples during pregnancy.

"As someone who's in the later stage of pregnancy, is there any way to harm the baby during intercourse?" Alba asked.

"That baby is in there and that baby ain't going nowhere until it's ready," Johanson assured her. "That uterus wall is just like that," she said knocking the arm of her chair. She then painted a picture of the cervix smiling from intercourse and things got a little weird.

Emma Stone, Spider Monkey, Kicked Ryan Gosling in the Throat on Set (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 22nd 2011 5:22AM
Emma Stone, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno''Crazy, Stupid, Love' is an all-star comedy film, but it seems some of the funniest stuff might have happened off-camera. Not that an incident between Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone was funny for her, according to her appearance on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

Stone didn't even know why she was reacting the way she was during filming of a scene reminiscent of the 'Dirty Dancing' lift. "I ran for him to pick me up and I don't know what happened," she said. "I went spider monkey around his head and kicked him in the throat."

After several repeated attempts, with the same disastrous result, Stone had to take a break. It was during this that she realized it was a visceral reaction to a childhood injury when she broke both arms falling off the parallel bars.

Jay Leno Asks About a Video of Daniel Craig Wearing a Dress (VIDEO)

Daniel CraigDaniel Craig is the consummate ladies' man as Agent 007, James Bond. In a bold marketing movie spearheaded by a producer of the movie franchise, though, he sported an entirely different suit, and Jay Leno wanted to know about it on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

The short film, in support of International Women's Day 2011, is called 'Equals' and features Craig and the voice of Judi Dench. Both are in character as Bond and M, respectively, but they're discussing a very real issue in our world: Gender inequality.

In the spot, James Bond spends a few moments dressed as a woman, while M details the many inequalities that still exist between the genders.

"Funny as it is," Craig said. "It obviously has a very serious point to it. I just wanted to get as many people to notice as possible."

Jenna Fischer, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Jenna Fischer had a surprise for Jay Leno on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). It wasn't that she's pregnant, as that's become pretty obvious by now. As Fischer stated, "You want to tell people or else they think you've just been on a big food binge or something."

But while that cat has been let out of the bag, she did save an exclusive bit of information for Leno and his audience. When he asked her if this was the first grandbaby for her parents, she responded, "This is the second grandchild, but the first grandson."

She then told him that he'd just gotten the exclusive on the gender of her baby, which was very exciting for Leno. "So like a lot of girls, you were saving yourself for Jay," he joked.

Neil Patrick Harris Reveals a Magic Trick Gone Wrong We Never Saw (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 19th 2011 5:34AM
Neil Patrick Harris, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'The last thing a magician ever wants is for a trick to go wrong. It immediately damages their credibility, and in a worst-case scenario, can reveal how the trick is done, destroying the illusion of "magic." Neil Patrick Harris didn't have to worry about the latter, but he revealed a well-kept incident when things didn't go well on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

In this case, it was more of a mechanical failure, but Jay Leno and 'The Tonight Show' staff had cleverly edited out the entire segment, possibly because it was the staff that had pressured Harris into doing it when he started worrying something might go wrong.

Don Rickles Provides Color Commentary to Leno's Interview With Bristol Palin (VIDEO)

Don Rickles & Bristol Palin, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'What do you do when an interview is perhaps less than exciting? Why not have Don Rickles sitting on the couch next to the subject providing color commentary. It worked for Bristol Palin's appearance on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

Rickles provided the best reaction to the stories she told and answers she gave to Leno's questions. He gasped and made a cross with his fingers when she revealed that she lied to her mother so she could sneak out, get drunk and lose her virginity.

When Jay Leno asked her point-blank, not expecting an answer, if her mother Sarah Palin was going to put her hat in the ring and run for president, it was Rickles who was able to step in.

"Is there any reason she shouldn't run?" Leno asked when Bristol said they were discussing it.

"'Cause she could lose," Rickles chimed in.

Rose Byrne & Craig Ferguson, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'We kind of think Craig Ferguson was just waiting for an invitation on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). He was sitting on the couch while Jay Leno was talking to Rose Byrne about her experience working on 'Bridesmaids.'

When Byrne started talking about how Kristen Wiig took the ladies out for a night of bonding, that wound up at a male strip club, Leno started really probing her for details.

"Oh, don't act like you've never been there," Ferguson said to him.

Seth Meyers Talks About His Ongoing Feud With Donald Trump on 'Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

Seth Meyers, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'It doesn't look like Donald Trump is quite ready to forgive and forget some jokes Seth Meyers made at his expense when hosting the White House Correspondents Dinner. On 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), Meyers was still gracious about their current relationship status.

Sometime after the White House dinner, Meyers ran into Trump at a charity event and thanked him for being a good sport about the whole thing. Regarding Trump's response, Meyers said, "He held his position. He maintained his position."

We can't help but see that as a very nice way of saying Trump either blew him off or blew up at him, more than likely not over the incident at all. So Meyers said he prefers to remember the good times they had in their past, like when Trump hosted 'SNL' in 2004. Why focus on the negative when you have video of you singing together about a wings place?

Howie Mandel, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Most people are pretty excited to meet celebrities. Not so Howie Mandel's friend on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). It might have been a little less nerve-wracking had Mandel not reminded Jay Leno how the two had previously "met."

Mandel's friend was backed into by a woman, who turned out to be Leno's wife. She told him that her husband usually takes care of everything, at which point Leno suddenly remembered the story.

He told the guy, "I'll pay to fix your car. We'll get it done right. Go have a nice dinner on me. Take a date, your girlfriend or whatever."
