While his late-night talk show peers often take on weighty social issues or offer political commentary (see Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert), Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon has always liked to keep things light and is always coming up with new games to play… like Phone Booth with actor Hugh Jackman and former NBA great Shaquille O’Neal.
PHONE BOOTH WITH SHAQ
Just how many celebs can fit in a phone booth with 7-foot-1, 340-pound Shaq? Fallon hosted a game of Phone Booth pitting the big fella against Jackman. The two occupied separate booths in which they attempted to correctly answer questions phoned in by the Tonight Show host. Wrong answers precipitated random celebs being crammed inside the booth one by one.
Shaq, who makes humans of all ages look small by comparison (see above video), attempted to accommodate Jeopardy host Alex Trebek, The Blacklist star Megan Boone, Knife Fight chef Ilan Hall, Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott, and baseball mascot Mr. Met inside his booth with limited success. Meanwhile, Jackman answered most of his questions correctly and was only joined by a frightened-looking blue man from the famed Blue Man Group.
