This ‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Almost Dropped Lin-Manuel Miranda On ‘The Late Late Show With James Corden’

“I digitized every VHS movie I made, I was like a Spielberg in my own mind…”

Lin-Manuel Miranda was on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and boy did a lot of things happen. From showing bits of his home movie collection where a scrawny Miranda danced in Puerto Rico to the sounds of el coqui, to brainstorming ideas for a future musical, it was a fun episode. Along for the ride was Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who you may know from a little show called “Game of Thrones” where he plays the one-handed, king-slaying knight, Sir Jamie Lannister. Although Miranda and Coster-Waldau might seem like an unlikely pair, the two got along swell, with Miranda at one point sitting on Coster-Waldau’s shoulders to show what a jailhouse squat looks like — something Coster-Waldau learned for a movie role.

You can see Miranda’s life flash before his eyes as Coster-Waldau balances Miranda on his shoulders.

This was definitely a close one…

Corden and Miranda then geeked out over the possibility of a “Game of Thrones” musical, which Coster-Waldau definitely would not be singing in.

A brainstorm session then ensued: what tattoo should the cast of “Game of Thrones” get? Miranda then showed off his tattoo: his wife’s initials on his wedding ring finger.

The crowd gave a collective “aww” at what is clearly the most romantic tattoo ever. Get it, Miranda!

Jessica Alba’s Face Says ‘Don’t Quit Your Day Job’ When Jimmy Fallon Pitches Her Ideas For Her New Show ‘Planet Of The Apps’

“How exciting is an escalator? It should be like a skydiving pitch, that’s exciting. AH, I’VE GOT THIS GREAT IDEA.”

On a recent episode of “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” movie star and entrepreneur Jessica Alba was on to promote her new show, “Planet of the Apps.” The show revolves around the idea of young app developers pitching their ideas for the next big app, with judges Gwyneth Paltrow, Gary Vaynerchuk, and will.i.am, deciding on whether or not the apps are good ideas. They’ll also decide if the developers will get the funding they need to make the app a reality. It’s pretty interesting idea, and, yes, it sounds a lot like Shark Tank, but the difference here is the contestants have 60 seconds to pitch their ideas while on a moving escalator (which really just looks like an inclined moving walkway at an airport).

Later in the show, Fallon pitched Alba on what her future child’s name should be.

Now this idea should be made into a show. The pitch: Jimmy Fallon picks your baby’s name and they have to live with it for the rest of their lives. Will they become successful? Will they just get picked on in school? Stay tuned to find out!
