VIDEO: Ryan Seacrest and Taraji P. Henson Play Charades on Jimmy Fallon
Henson’s effective portrayal of “Dancing Queen” was easily guessed by her partner, as was Seacrest’s well-acted “Running with the Devil.” But things began to get tougher. Henson couldn’t pick up on “All About That Bass.” It took Seacrest a little while to figure out Fallon’s “Three Little Pigs.” And for a moment, it looked like all was lost for the Henson-Tariq team.
But then Henson came back with a brilliant impression of “Shark Tank,” setting up a thrilling finale in which she and Seacrest raced to act out “The Elephant Man” as a clue. We won’t spoil who won. There was plenty of taunting.
Seacrest’s “American Idol” just launched its 14th season, which Gossip Cop has been covering. Meanwhile, Henson’s new show “Empire” has become a huge hit in its first few episodes. Which of the FOX stars would prove to be better at “Charades”? Watch the video below to find out.
