Hold up, wait a minute… Jimmy Fallon was an actor? OK. Everyone knows that, but we bet most people have forgotten about some of his roles in big films, and likely never knew about some roles in some real stinkers. That’s what we’re here for — to connect you to those nuggets of entertainment gold that will someday win you a free order of French fries at your local trivia night. Let’s get to the magic, shall we? Here are seven films that Jimmy Fallon starred/co-starred in that you may have forgotten.
Remember this one? A few of you certainly will, but it’ll come as a shock to newer fans of Jimmy Fallon, and especially those who only know Jimmy from The Tonight Show fame. Taxi was a real stinker. It wasn’t hard to forget. This film paired the unlikely duo of Jimmy Fallon and Queen Latifah–seriously–in an action-comedy of errors from 2004. What was it about? Jimmy played a young, fairly clueless detective trying to solve a series of bank robberies that were pulled off by a group of hot Brazilian chicks. Yes. Gisele Bundchen is in this. That should be your first clue as the quality of acting. Queen Latifah serves as a loud-mouthed, fast-talkin’, New York City cab driver who helps Jimmy’s character in his police business. Sadly, this film was based off a very successful French comedy, once again proving Hollywood sucks at remakes.
