The actress joined Jimmy Fallon and Ryan Seacrest for a competitive game of charades on Friday’s “Tonight Show,” where she pretty much single-handedly won the thing for her and teammate Tariq of house band The Roots. By TheWrap‘s count, however, there’s a bit of an asterisk next to that “win.”
Henson was playing for something bigger than pride: The actress thought the prize was $120,000 dollars, and/or taking over as host of the NBC late-night staple.
Ladies up first, Henson acted out Abba’s “Dancing Queen,” with Tariq (more-or-less) guessing it pretty swiftly. Seacrest and Fallon matched their speed with Van Halen’s “Runnin’ With the Devil.”
From there, the scoring got a little messed up, since Henson and Tariq went two-for-three, while Seacrest and Fallon went two-for-two. Somehow, given those stats, it still ended in a showdown, which the soap opera star and musician got first, acting out and guessing “The Elephant Man,” respectively. Replay may be in order on this one, folks.
