Jimmy Fallon‘s version of Russian Roulette is far less deadly than the harrowing scene film fans might remember from 1978 war epic, “The Deer Hunter,” but almost as messy.
“The Tonight Show” host challenged “Pitch Perfect 2” star Anna Kendrick to a round of Egg Russian Roulette on Tuesday’s episode. The pair went head-to-head with a dozen eggs.
Eight of them were hard-boiled, but four of them were raw — i.e., fully loaded.
“Uncooked, untainted by fire,” according to the high-pitched introduction. “The first to smash two raw eggs on their head is the loser.”
Kendrick admitted she didn’t feel good with her first choice, but fortunately she chose wisely. So did Fallon as the tension mounted.
After plenty of smack talk — including a quip about Tom Brady‘s eggs being deflated — Fallon smashed a raw one all over his face. When Kendrick got one with live ammo, she responded optimistically that it was good for her hair.
The actress came out the winner, as her host was literally left with egg on his face.
“The Tonight Show” airs at 11.30 p.m. on NBC.
