The year 2013, like all years, offered plenty of comedic fodder, perfect for parodying — and the spoofers did not disappoint over the course of the 365 days that they had to shoot the below videos. From James Franco and Seth Rogen making out in a shot-for-shot remake of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s “Bound 2″ to “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” offering the definitive “Breaking Bad” parody, YouTube was a blur of impressions.

I don't often watch the late night television circuit. However, there are a couple of segments on some of the shows that I try to catch when I see clips on Hulu. One of them is the Lip Sync Battle on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. The idea came about from John Krasinski and wife, Emily Blunt. The first battle I saw was actually between Krasinski and Fallon. However this one between Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Stephen Merchant, and Fallon tops that one million times over. Actually, I can't imagine »

It was a year of stunts, typically outrageous pop music acts, experimental sets and plenty of solid performances on late night television. As part of 2013's Year In Review, The Hollywood Reporter spotlights a few of the more worthwhile guest appearances that either have faded from memory or were missed the first time they were aired. Jim James - "A New Life" (Late Night With Jimmy Fallon) My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James took the Late Night stage in February to showcase his sparse solo album, Regions of Light and Sound of God. The LP was a departure from the Southern

Remember the day before your school's Christmas vacation, when you and the other kids were so wild with excitement that you couldn’t even stay in your seats, so your teacher just passed out candy canes and put on a video and got the hell out of the way? I'm pretty sure that was exactly how it felt in Studio 8H last night, as Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake delivered a near-perfect Christmas episode to an ecstatic crowd. These guys were the ideal choice to finish out the year: They »
Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon have some serious onscreen chemistry, and viewers are about to be treated to plenty of it on this week's Saturday Night Live. Fallon returns to host SNL while Timberlake is pulling musical-guest duties -- though he will undoubtedly pop into at least a few sketches. The pair already teamed up for a Timberlake-centered "Timberweek" earlier this year on NBC's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, which brought us (among other things) another installment of the History of Rap.

Making a surprise appearance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on Thursday (Dec. 12), the estimable performer let the world in on his secret struggle. The man doesn't understand how a revolving door works. Like, at all.
One man can't do it all, it would seem.
Check out the hysterical video above. »
When a celebrity appears on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," it's never just for a run of the mill interview. From playing basketball to mini game shows, there's a little something different for just about everyone.
Things were taken to a new level when Emma Thompson stopped by to promote "Saving Mr. Banks," which tells the story of the making of "Mary Poppins." It's hard to talk about "Mary Poppins" without bringing up the music, which led to a pretty special moment as Emma led the audience in a sing-along of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," complete with a bad Cockney accent.
Refusing to be outdone, James Marsden followed her with a sing-along of his own, doing a rendition of "Babe" by Styx. Of course, his little performance wasn't planned. Instead, Jimmy just sprung it on him. Luckily Marsden has a pretty decent voice.
"Downton Abbey" is gearing up for its return to the U.S. airwaves and as such, the cast is doing a lot of press on this side of the pond. Four stars appeared on "Watch What Happens Live" earlier this week, followed by Michelle Dockery playing antler ring-toss on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."
Thursday night (Dec. 12) there's a special treat for fans -- a live question-and-answer panel with the cast members in New York. The event is streaming live above beginning at 8:30 p.m. Et/5:30 pm. Pt.
"Downton Abbey" premieres in the U.S. Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014 on PBS. »
Lady Mary star drops in for a deer-themed Christmas game on Jimmy Fallon's show ahead of season four launch in New York
Aside from season four's episode in a pig pen, Downton Abbey's Lady Mary is known for her demure disposition. However, Michelle Dockery, who plays her, has revealed she has a sillier side, entering into the festive spirit with a Christmas game on Us TV. While in New York for the Us season four launch, she appeared on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Fallon convinced her to take part in a game of "antler ring toss", and you can watch the outcome above. "Edith and I used to do this," joked Dockery – but you can bet the Downton Christmas special won't be featuring any games of antler ringtoss.

"Downton Abbey" star Michelle Dockery appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on Tuesday (Dec. 10), where she played a delightful game of antler ring toss with Fallon (video below) and also dished a few details on the upcoming fourth season of the British period drama.
When Fallon jokes that she should just move to the U.S., Dockery says, "I love it here. ... I should just do exactly what Dan did and just move here. Dan Stevens, that's what he's done."
Fallon responds, "We can't even talk about that, we can't even talk about Dan. We can't even talk about Matthew and what happened to Matthew. That was a shocker, it killed everybody."
Which is exactly what's happening on Season 4 of "Downton," says Dockery.
"Mary's grieving, obviously, for her dead husband. It takes her a bit of time to move on, but eventually she does. She's single and" -- "Ready to mingle, »
Oscar Isaac stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon this week to promote Inside Llewyn Davis, and he showed off his folk singing skills with an unexpected song. Fallon supplied the guitar, and after quoting his character - "If it was never new and it never gets old, then it's a folk song" - Isaac launched into a really fantastic folk version of Katy Perry's "Roar." It's short but really sweet, especially because at one point Fallon kind of goofs the words but just keeps going with it. »

Before she was Lois Lane in "Man of Steel" or starring in David O. Russell's "American Hustle," Amy Adams got her start in commercials, like many other actors. Unfortunately for her, Jimmy Fallon found that commercial.
During an appearance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" to promote "American Hustle," Amy was presented with a bank commercial she did, which the actress says was her first on-camera job. The ad is a parody of "Grease," with Adams singing in the Sandy role.
Amy's not embarrassed of her first job at all, instead she looks mesmerized and says, "Gosh, I look so young." Don't worry Amy, you still look fantastic. »

Oscar Isaac is singing his way into stardom as the grumpy, yet talented lead in “Inside Llewyn Davis,” and on Monday he sang his way into the hearts of any Katy Perry fans watching “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” When Fallon handed Isaac a guitar and asked him to play something, the actor opted to finger pick his way through Perry’s “Roar.” Also read: How Oscar Isaac’s Career Fallback Landed Him ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ “Llewyn Davis at one point in the movie says, ‘If it was never new, and it never gets old, than it’s a folk song, »

Many of the big late night programs--Conan, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live, etc.--have thriving YouTube channels, where highlights from previous episodes are posted for the world to see. Pete Holmes, who recently began hosting The Pete Holmes Show on TBS, doesn't have quite the same following (yet), but he's the best example of a TV host who is treating YouTube not as an ancillary platform but a complementary one. Holmes owes much is his fame to the Internet. Before he became a regular TV host, his most well-known acting gig was his leading role in Badman, the series of hysterical Batman parodies released by CollegeHumor (fun fact: he is also the voice of the E-Trade baby.) Since taking to TV, Holmes has continued to include plenty of internet-friendly sketches. The Ex-Men series, where Holmes plays an obnoxious Professor X who fires his most worthless mutant associates, »

"Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe," says Zack Snyder, the film's director. "Not only is Gal an amazing actress, »
