A couple of years ago, Alan Rickman watched as Jimmy Fallon and Benedict Cumberbatch got up to shenanigans in a so-called “Rickman-off,” in which both took turns doing impressions of the famous actor. Last night, Rickman actually appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and got some revenge in the form of helium. Check out the amusing video, below.
Alan Rickman’s a man who is well aware of the impressions people do of him, and has personally encountered Fallon’s own sketch poking fun at his manner of speaking. So, he brought some helium as a proper “truth teller,” which basically gave him the satisfaction of watching Fallon make a goof of himself on late night television, just as Fallon made a goof of him a couple of years ago. Fallon, luckily, doesn’t mind humorous revenge plots, sucking in the helium and apologizing to the Harry Potter franchise actor, who eventually joins him in the helium fun. Plus, balloons!
