Because it’s football season — at least, that’s what the new Star Wars trailer debuting on ESPN’s Monday Night Football tells us — a special Sunday night edition of Fallon’s talk show featured a football-themed trivia game.
With Alec Baldwin hosting the segment called Cooler Heads, Fallon and Kate Beckinsale took turns answering football-related multiple choice questions. If they got the question right, then a bucket of a mysterious substance was dumped on the opponent’s head. If they got it wrong, they had to face the TBD goop.
The odds were really against Fallon — i.e. there was probably some previously struck agreement that said Beckinsale would only be showered with fall foliage and Fallon would face continuing onslaughts of guacamole, Cheetos, and Pepto-Bismol.
This is Fallon’s life now.
