Myers stopped by Jimmy Fallon's 'The Tonight Show' on Wednesday.
More than two decades after he debuted one of his most memorable characters to the world in the first Austin Powers movie, Mike Myers brought back Dr. Evil for a comedy sketch to send up Donald Trump on ‘The Tonight Show’.
54 year old Myers famously played Dr. Evil, as well as the title character, in three movies from 1997 to 2002. The Canadian actor was a guest on Jimmy Fallon’s ‘The Tonight Show’ on Wednesday evening (April 4th), and he decided to revive the comically nefarious bad-guy and reimagine him as an ousted member of Donald Trump’s cabinet.
Annoyed that Steve Bannon had already taken the title of ‘Secretary of Evil’, Myers in character described himself as Trump’s “ideas guy” and explained that “the wall, that was all me, but I wanted it to be a moat filled with spiky blowfish”.
The best holiday games, mostly inspired by Jimmy Fallon.
Christmastime for most people is the time of year when you get together with your whole family, exchange gifts, eat yourselves stupid, watch the same movies and, of course, play a few games. Aside from the usual charades, karaoke, Cards Against Humanity and board games, here's some super entertaining games you can play, all inspired by talk show segments.

1. Whisper Challenge: A 'Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' favourite, this one is loud and very silly. The aim of the game is to guess what phrase the challenger is saying just by reading their lips. The person guessing has to wear headphones blaring loud music so they can't hear; though of course you could just have the challenger mouthe the words instead.

The rapper also revealed why she’s not buying Christmas presents for any of the adults in her life this year.
She made hip hop history with her single ‘Bodak Yellow’ this year, but on Wednesday Cardi B also proved herself to be a great late-night talk show guest.
Appearing on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, Cardi managed to charm and crack up the late-night host, as she told the story of her stage name and explained why she doesn't buy Christmas presents for adults.

A unique rendition performed with classroom instruments.
Jimmy Fallon and his house band the Roots were joined by legendary diva Darlene Love and Anna Kendrick in a rendition of the festive number 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)' using only classroom instruments. It's still one of the best segments on 'The Tonight Show'.
Anna Kendrick at 'Pitch Perfect 3' premiere
Who knew a casio keyboard, bongos, shakers, a xylophone and sleigh bells could come together to create such a beautiful version of this 1963 Christmas hit? It's definitely better than what you did in elementary school that's for sure, and Anna Kendrick looked thrilled to be singing along with such a stand-out voice from the iconic album 'A Christmas Gift for You from Philles Records'.
It's the funniest edition of his talk show game yet.
Daisy Ridley and Jimmy Fallon got super over-excited when they played a 'Star Wars' themed Whisper Challenge on 'The Tonight Show' this week, and it's basically the game we're all going to be playing with our families this Christmas. We just hope we can do as well as them.
Daisy Ridley at the 'Murder on the Orient Express' premiere
The 25-year-old 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' actress absolutely smashed this Whisper Challenge out of the park - though, to be fair, so did Jimmy. They read out selected quotes from the 'Star Wars' franchise and guessed them all correctly. Eventually.
He's taking time off to be with his family at this difficult time.
Tragedy strikes for Jimmy Fallon as he reveals in a statement that his mother has passed away, and he's cancelled this week's taping of 'The Tonight Show' in order to spend time with his family to mourn their loss in peace. Many of his friends and supporters have posted messages of support on social media.

The TV host lost his 68-year-old mother Gloria on Saturday (November 4th 2017) from unknown causes, just one day after he cancelled a taping of his show which was presumsably so he could be with her in her last hours. According to New York Daily News, she died 'peacefully' at NYU Langone Medical Center in Manhattan.
The unlikely franchise took over their Halloween night.
Jimmy Fallon was tasked with keeping the boys from 'Stranger Things' in line during an interview on his show, and while they are as boisterous as any of your average 13 to 16-year-old males, they do all have the same guilty pleasure: 'High School Musical'. Who'd've thought it?

Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) and Noah Schnapp (Will) happen to be all friends outside of the world of 'Stranger Things', and even spent Halloween night together this year. However, what was meant to be a night of standard horror movies turned into one of singing along to the 2006 Zac Efron movie.

She really nailed the Musical Genre Challenge.
Miley Cyrus joined Jimmy Fallon for a Musical Genre Challenge when she was a guest on his show this week, and she really threw herself into it. Her pop rendition of 'Bodak Yellow' marked the perfect warm-up to her real performance later on in the night.

The 24-year-old 'Malibu' singer was one of the best Musical Genre Challenge guests ever on 'The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon' yesterday (October 2nd 2017). Those who watch the show will be aware that the game involves singing a randomly selected well-known song in the style of a randomly selected genre.

'Titanic' fans just would not forgive her if she didn't go through with it.
Kate Winslet is set to appear alongside Idris Elba on the adventure drama 'The Mountain Between Us' this Fall, which sees her perform many an action stunt - including getting dunked into ice cold water twenty years after the first time she did it in 'Titanic'.
Kate Winslet and Idris Elba in 'The Mountain Between Us'
The 41-year-old spoke about this particular scene on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon', admitting that there was no way her fanbase would forgive her if she shied away from completing the stunt - especially the ones who continue to insist that there was enough room on that floating door for Jack as well as Rose on 'Titanic'.

He drops 'Holidays Rule, Vol. 2' this Fall.
We know it's a bit early yet, but Paul McCartney has teamed up with The Roots and Jimmy Fallon for an epic rendition of 'Wonderful Christmastime' and now we can't wait until Winter. It's not the first time he has brought Christmas spirit to 'The Tonight Show', but this time it will be immortalised in the studio.

The 75-year-old musician performed his 1980 festive classic with the 'The Tonight Show' house band as he gears up to launch his latest yuletide compilation 'Holidays Rule, Vol. 2' this Fall. The version featuring The Roots' a cappella instrumental and Paul and Jimmy on lead vocals will be the one on the album, a year after he first teamed up with them alongside the cast of 'Sing'.
