Jimmy Fallon just hijacked Stephen Colbert’s Emmy awards acceptance speech — and it was either the first shot in a new late night war … or a totally planned bit.Colbert’s crew won for ‘Outstanding Writing in a Variety Series’ … and after Gwen…
You can now add “beard-trimmer” to Fallon’s resumé after Wednesday night’s Tonight Show.
The host took guest Jared Leto‘s beard to task: It was apparently not up to Fallon’s standards and needed a trim, so that’s just what it got.
Leto, wearing several massive rings and a shirt unbuttoned below his sternum, was definitely courting “hobo Jesus” territory with his beard and hair combination.
“This is a big beard,” was Fallon’s professional assessment, and he’s right – Leto mentioned he’d been growing it since the Oscars, when he took home the Academy Award for Dallas Buyers Club.
Leto is currently touring with his band 30 Seconds to Mars. The band’s latest single, “Do or Die” is currently available on most major digital platforms.

That’s the hard lesson Pierce Brosnan learned during his appearance on The Tonight Show Tuesday – the former Bond, James Bond, was handily defeated by Jimmy Fallon at the classic Nintendo 64 game based on the first film Brosnan appeared in as the iconic British agent.
A generation of kids grew up playing “GoldenEye 007″ on the N64 platform – it’s considered one of the most important titles in the first-person shooter genre and is a spiritual successor to millions-selling games like Microsoft’s “Halo” franchise.
But Brosnan apparently had little time to familiarize himself with the game during his tenure as 007 – he’s handily defeated by Fallon, who admits to a long-held desire to play the game with the man who inspired it. (At least they hug and make up at the end.)
Better luck next time, Pierce – maybe keep your fingers crossed for a Remington Steele game?
Meanwhile, Brosnan is back to his old spy tricks in The November Man, in which he plays an ex-CIA operative. The film hits theaters Aug. 27.

Swift joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Wednesday night, and popped up in a sketch starring Fallon’s teenage girl alter-ego, Sara (no “h”).
Swift donned large glasses, multiple Scrunchies, braces (with fake overbite!) and a Scrabble-tile necklace to play Natalie, who likes to eat apricots and has a Band-Aid collection.
The Tonight Show spoiled the surprise by posting a video of Swift in makeup with her overbite to its YouTube channel earlier this week, though that doesn’t really mitigate the initial shock of seeing Swift like this.
It’s something like her video for “You Belong with Me,” turned up to 11.
