Fallon gets Nina Dobrev to play beer pong, Megan Fox Pictionary

It's the boyish grin, isn't it?

That must be what Jimmy Fallon deploys to get celebrities to play whatever game he comes up with during their time on "The Tonight Show," from becoming a human hamster wheel to Face Balls to Box of Lies.

But Fallon's smile didn't have to work too hard this week, as he brought out more usual fare: beer pong for Nina Dobrev, and Pictionary for Megan Fox, Wiz Khalifa and Nick Cannon. (Yes, they all played Pictionary together. What of it?)

Will Ferrell, Chad Smith finally have that drum-off

Will the real Chad Smith please stand up? Or, at the very least, take to the drum set.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer just so happens to be a dead ringer for actor Will Ferrell, to the point that people apparently mistake them for one another.

"A lot of people think that it's me playing for the Red Hot Chili Peppers," Ferrell said during a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" in February. "But that would be an insult to Chad Smith. The truth of the matter is there is no Will Ferrell. Only Chad Smith."

Jennifer Lawrence's 'Box of Lies'

Prepare yourself to be endlessly entertained.

We're not sure how Jimmy Fallon comes up with these games for "The Tonight Show," or how he has the genius to get Jennifer Lawrence to play them with him, but we move that these two make their "Box of Lies" face-off a regular bit.

Tina Fey explains the lack of women in late night

With all of the smart, uproariously funny women in the world, it is greatly curious that none of them are ruling late night.

Aside from some of the ladies in the land of cable, the late night space is wanting for a feminine touch - and Tina Fey has an interesting theory as to why broadcast network late night shows have been without a female presence for so long.

Neil Patrick Harris passed on 'The Late Show'

Neil Patrick Harris initially downplayed reports that he was an option to host CBS' "Late Show" after David Letterman retires, but it turns out the actor really was a potential replacement.

"Yeah, I was (in conversation with CBS)," Harris told Howard Stern on his radio show. "Not in conversation like, about to make a deal. But they called me in and sat me down and asked if that would be something I'd be interested in doing, because I have a good relationship with CBS from 'How I Met Your Mother.'"
