His best move was when he was running from graboids with a pantsless Finn Carter.

I never realised until recently exactly how much backside she showed off either

I caught it last night. It was awesome. This new Tonight Show is turning into a mini SNL. Much faster paced, and far more engaging than the traditional Tonight Show. The spoofs, games and musical numbers are getting memorable. Jimmy's Charlie Brown movie riff was great. This show is one more reason I'm not interested in cable anymore.

You've gotta hand it to Kevin Bacon: Despite the twists and turns in his storied career, he's still Footloose and fancy-free. A lesser performer would be daunted by the plethora of Wild Things he's bound to encounter in an industry as fickle as Tinseltown-things that might elicit feelings of disillusionment and cynicism, possibly making him a Hollow Man and spelling a Death Sentence for his career-but Bacon has largely shrugged off such impediments with aplomb and thrived. There are A Few Good Men who effortlessly manage to captivate audiences on both the big and small screens after twenty years in the business. You can count him among that group.

How else do you explain The Following he still commands?

He lost a crap ton of his money too a few years back, he had a very large bundle invested in Bernie Madoff.

I thought Jimmy Fallon was alright before he got The Tonight Show, and I didn't think I'd watch him much, but now I find myself watching The Tonight Show fairly regularly, and dare I say it, actually looking forward to it on the nights I can watch. His monologue is still as bland as everyone else, but the way he's handled the rest of the show has made it an entertaining, lighthearted hour of TV to watch before bed. I can't believe what a drag Jay Leno was on the show, watching someone who actually gives a shiat and doesn't just treat it like a way to get a paycheck is refreshing. I don't know how Fallon has been doing in the ratings, but he won me over, and I hope he's doing the same with some of Jay's old viewers so he sticks around.

He and wife Kira Sedgewick got scammed bigtime by Madoff, so he has to keep on working!

The show really has fun and life back in it now.
 
2014-03-22 10:01:48 PM
Wouldn't it be strange if you met him and he actually smelled like bacon. What would you do? Would you mention it? Would it offend him? Would there be some logical explanation?
What does Kevin Bacon think of when he actually cooks bacon? "Hey, this stuff smells like me."
 
2014-03-22 11:29:55 PM
Holy crap, it's great to see he still can dance like that. I can't dance as well as I couid five years ago.
 
2014-03-22 11:46:55 PM
Never saw the original movie and I still found this charming. (Though Fallon is still always uncomfortable to watch, someone always dreadfully out of place in his own skin.)

What's with this new Fark trend of init-capping the movie titles in a pun run? Satire for dummies? It's really unbecoming and robs the exercise of any semblance of fun....

I heard him say they only lost 3 million with Madoff and didn't lose their life savings like others.

He's killing in the ratings.

What did you expect subby? He was basically recreating a scene from a movie. A very specific scene. Did you want him to do the farking Running Man or something? Jesus, some people can't figure out the most simple shiat.

According to what I have read, Leno never used his Tonight Show money to support himself. He only used money from his standup stuff. My opinion was that he was being strangled by NBC's
internal politics.That kept his show pretty blah and repetitive. I don't think he was allowed free reign to make jokes that might offend anyone or any sponsor. It's not like he was Carson, and
was the "star maker" who could zig zag around NBC's internal politics because he ruled the ratings..WIth Leno, it was too close. They couldn't afford to alienate anyone and loose a rating point.

And if you look closely, it;s clear he was body doubled for most of that routine. Even for fit guys in their 50s, the ankles and knees just can't take that kind of torque anymore.

Exactly. They doubled the same portions of the routine in the original movie.
