Justin Timberlake & Jimmy Fallon Test Their Friendship, Sing 'Ironic' and Throw Pizza Party on 'Tonight Show'

Justin Timberlake & Jimmy Fallon Test Their Friendship, Sing 'Ironic' and Throw Pizza Party on 'Tonight Show'
When Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon get together, the results are always entertaining.

The Trolls star sat down with the Tonight Show host on Wednesday for a wild night of bromantic bestie fun that started with a flashback to their time at sleepaway camp as children.

Donning ridiculous wigs, fake braces and camp uniforms, Timberlake and Fallon shined with yet another installment of their signature sketch in which they play teenagers in the ‘90s, hanging out in their camp cabin after lights out.

This time around, the adorable besties passed the time by singing a hilarious rendition of Alanis Morissette's "Ironic," which is made all the funnier by their braces-induced slurring.

Watch: Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake Poke Fun at Their Epic Friendship

After the always-adorable sketch, the two sat down to talk about Timberlake's upcoming animated film, Trolls. But the singer couldn't help but mention how he stirred up a quasi-controversy recently at a voting

Ron Moody in Mel Brooks' 'The Twelve Chairs.' The 'Doctor Who' that never was.

Everyone's keeping secrets in the 'Faking It' season 2 trailer

Everyone's keeping secrets in the 'Faking It' season 2 trailer
The story of Faking It started with one lie: Best friends Amy and Karma decided to pretend to be a couple so that they could be “cool.” But one lie turned into many more when Amy realized she had real feelings for Karma, was rejected by her bestie, and then slept with Karma’s boyfriend. But as the season-two trailer puts it, “What does it all mean?”

Well, for now, it looks like it means keeping secrets, acting normal, and eventually, everything blowing up in a dramatic fashion.

Faking It kicks off its second season Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 10:30 p.

Females On Film: Ranking the summer's biggest box office winners based on lady roles

Females On Film: Ranking the summer's biggest box office winners based on lady roles
Films with great women’s roles aren’t always great films. Films with poor female representation aren’t necessarily bad films. But poorly written female roles will always be a problem for cinema so long as they continue to persist. The damsel in distress. Angel-whore. The token girl. Trophy wives. Mother, daughter, sister. The unconditional love interest. These are among the popular clichés most frequently applied to female characters as they’re written on the page. Some films are so desperate for conflict that they just keep going to the well without altering the mold. Have women not earned the right by now to play more villains, complicated lovers, a-holes, The Best Friends, soldiers, comic reliefs or leads? Can a woman be sexy in a film and still have a great role? Yes. Give her agency. Can a woman support other characters but still have a great role? Yes. Keep her vital.

Take Me To The Pilots '14: NBC's 'A to Z'
[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "A to Zed" (NBC) The Pitch: "When Ginsberg Met The Mother" Quick Response: In my Tmttp entry for "Manhattan Love Story," I wrote "I'll watch a love story in which I kinda like the idea that the two main characters might find happiness together." Proving that it's not like I'm asking the moon, I give you "A to Z," a new comedy that I don't find especially funny, but because I like Ben Feldman's Andrew and I like Cristin Milioti's Zelda, I'm prepared to make at least a moderate commitment here. Basically just "500 Days of Summer" filtered with a little "How I Met Your Mother" "A to Z" is a more-than-slightly twee story about a romantic pairing drawn together by fate, but seemingly doomed to be separated in "8 months, three weeks, five days and one hour," or at least that's the assumption we make based on Katey Sagal's opening voiceover,

Vampire Academy Sequel Frostbite Is In The Hands Of The Fans

I’ll avoid the obligatory joke about a vampire flick lacking bite at the box office, but when Vampire Academy failed to make it past seventh place on opening weekend, with just $4 million upon release and a total worldwide gross of $15 million, chances of a sequel appeared less than likely. However, it turns out that fans of Rachel Mead’s novel series can still make an adaptation of the second book, Frostbite, happen. They’ll just have to stump up the cash for it first.

The producers behind Vampire Academy, hoping to save the franchise, have launched an IndieGoGo campaign asking fans to donate in order to get Frostbite off the ground. According to the campaign page, they have exhausted their resources and successfully raised most of the money for the film’s budget, but financiers want to see fan interest before committing to Frostbite.

So, the campaign is asking

Let's Be Cops Puts on a Costume and Pretends to Be a Buddy-Cop Flick

Let's Be Cops Puts on a Costume and Pretends to Be a Buddy-Cop Flick
When you put a pair of losers in uniforms, at the end of the day they're still losers. Best friends and roommates Justin (Damon Wayans Jr.) and Ryan (Jake Johnson) learn that the hard way but not without finding some joy in the fantasy that you can become the success you had always hoped to by just slipping on some aviators and buying a police car off eBay. Easy is the theme and reality of Let's Be Cops. As the pair slides into fake lives and real danger, the movie glides on the formula of buddy cop films, putting on those tropes just like Justin and Ryan putting on cop gear. As a film, Let's Be Cops glides in the same way its characters do. Though it charms, it's difficult to ignore how many times we've seen this story played out before. At 30, the f...

Originally set for release on May 15, 2015, Pixels is getting pushed further into next summer, now landing on the July 24, 2015 weekend, where it will face not only Amy Schumer's big theatrical debut, but also MGM's Poltergeist remake starring Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jared Harris.

Pixels was originally set to open opposite Mad Max: Fury Road, which earned a lot of buzz coming out of Comic-Con this past July, and the musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2, which comes with a diehard built-in audience of Barden Bella faithfuls.
