My (Second) Boyfriend In My Head Benedict Cumberbatch has been making the rounds on talk shows lately to promote his upcoming film, “The Imitation Game,” in which he plays Alan Turing, the logician who cracked the Nazi Enigma code. He stopped by “The Tonight Show” last night and played “Three Word Stories” with Jimmy Fallon, the objective of which is to lead your opponent into saying a certain word. Fallon accomplished his goal in three turns, while Yumberbatch took, well, significantly longer to get Fallon to say “Booty” (demonstrating that he is not, in fact, the characters he plays).
Womp womp. The life of Alan Turing is totally fascinating, so I do suggest that you go see “The Imitation Game” when it comes out, November 28. [h/t People]

When Brad Pitt paid a visit to “The Tonight Show” last night to promote his movie “Fury,” he opted out of the traditional interview route and chose to have a subtitle-fueled dance conversation with Jimmy. I have to admit, I’m pretty impressed with their moves! [Us Weekly]
I stand by my general assessment of Adam Levine as a semi-douchebag, but I’m too impressed by his Eddie Vedder impersonation to write him off altogether. Last night on “The Tonight Show,” Adam managed to keep a straight face as he and Jimmy took on impressions of Iggy Azalea, Frank Sinatra and Michael Jackson. This game needs to make an appearance at karaoke nights more often!
The hilarious (and oddly dressed) Amy Sedaris hung out with Jimmy Fallon last week and gave him a not-so-accurate CPR lesson. What Amy lacks in lifesaving technique, she makes up for in humor.
Jimmy Fallon couldn’t help but notice that the world generally seems to be falling apart these days, especially whenever the evening news comes on. To help lift our spirits, he made up some good news. If only it were true! But hey, like Jimmy says, we’ll get through this together. Things have to get better eventually, right? [Gawker]
