It was time for another round of Pictionary on “The Tonight Show” Thursday night, so Jimmy Fallon invited the Golden Globe-nominated “Whiplash” star J.K. Simmons to partner with him against Steve Higgins and “Girls” star Lena Dunham.
Right away, though, it looked like Fallon’s team was in trouble, and it was his own fault. Dunham and Higgins were in perfect sync during the first round, with minimal lines needed for Higgins to guess correctly.
But when it came time for Fallon to try and draw a foot-long hot dog, he wound up offending and shocking everyone. Simmons was completely lost as to what Fallon was trying to draw.
“Something phallic. A vagina,” he guessed. When Higgins chastised him for using the word, he defended his choice, saying, “It’s a medical term.”
After their disappointing turn, Dunham had some harsh words for the host. “Jimmy, I’m saying this with complete love. You could not have failed harder,” she told him.
The Higgins-Dunham power duo continued strong into the second round, leading to an epic showdown between Jimmy Fallon and Lena Dunham. They had to draw the same word for their partners, and neither of them was the slightest bit confident when they saw the word: wingman.
Lena Dunham stars in “Girls,” premiering Sunday at 8 p.m.on HBO. J.K. Simmons is nominated for a Golden Globe Award for his performance in “Whiplash.” The Golden Globes broadcast live Sunday at 7 p.m. on NBC. “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 10:35 p.m. on NBC.
