There was no love on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon between serious actor Kevin Spacey and Jimmy Fallon as they backhanded each other on the Mad Lib Theater court. The two played feuding tennis players who last faced off at the 1922 Albanian Open. They verbally volleyed each other, with Jimmy claiming to serve the ball “faster than a dying owl.” Spacey retorted he was going “to be all over the court like a rambunctious sex therapist.”
After the verbal volley, someone needed to break them up, and it turned out to be surprise referee John McEnroe, who ended the two feuding players’ rivalry through song.
The tennis court Mad Lib Theater was thematic. During Kevin Spacey’s interview, he announced his upcoming one-man show playing Clarence Darrow at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, N.Y. Darrow is known for the “Scopes Monkey Trial,” formally known as the State of Tennessee v. John Thomas Scopes. Darrow was also the subject of the film Inherit the Wind, which is about a science teacher who wanted to teach evolution in school.
Tickets for Spacey’s play go on sale on Ticketmaster on April 30. The two dates that Spacey announced are June 15 and June 16.
