On last night’s Tonight Show, Jay made Ellen Page list “fun facts” about her hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia and really could have tried to save her a few minutes in. A few minutes! As if it were an oral exam for the Nova Scotia AP test! It was all a ploy to set up a series of stills from Inception with Leonardo DiCaprio going all Mel Gibson on Ellen Page because Ellen Page won’t stop talking about Nova Scotia. The whole thing was almost as awkward as an Ellen Page for Cisco commercial, but I love the seven or so forced giggles she throws Jay’s way towards the end.

Do legitimately fun facts like “Urine is an incredible nitrogen source for plants” have you more excited for Inception than you were a few minutes ago?
