Jimmy Fallon‘s strength as a talk show host has always been his boundless enthusiasm, plus his consistent efforts to put our favorite celebrities in delightfully ridiculous situations. The last Late Night Lip-Sync Battle was a viral sensation. Jimmy took on Stephen Merchant and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as they pretended to sing a series of popular songs that are now forever changed. Will you ever hear “Single Ladies” again without picturing Merchant loping around the stage and shaking it? Doubtful.
We can’t wait for the next one, so we’re suggesting a few challengers to kill it on stage and then join these guys (and fellow past contestant John Krasinski, whom Fallon credits with the invention of game, along with his wife Emily Blunt) in the Late Night Lip Sync Hall of Fame.
True, Anna Kendrick doesn’t have to lip sync anything. The muscially-gifted actress could wipe the floor with her competitors in a straight up singing competition. Still, we’d love to see her channel all her self-deprecating wit and hilarious energy into this contest.
The Breaking Bad star’s infectious joy alone could catapault him into the Lip Sync winner’s circle.
Happy Endings is no more, and we miss seeing the hilarious Damon Wayans, Jr. on TV. Also, we could stand to have a little comedy royalty in this talent pool.
Since the first Scary Movie, Mom star Anna Faris is always willing to make a fool out of herself to get a laugh. We wouldn’t mind a surprise duet with husband Chris Pratt either.
