Last Night on Late Night: Aaron Paul’s Meteor Prank Even Duped the Local News

Last night on Conan, Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul confessed to a prank so perfect it had even duped the local Los Angeles news crew. Quite possibly channeling Jesse's evil genius, Paul contrived a meteor explosion in his backyard that still (well, till now, anyway) has his superstitious roommate convinced that Doomsday has come. And when their house shook, his roommate's girlfriend was there to tape and send off the fiery footage to Fox 11. Plus: Aubrey Plaza cost the producers of Safety Not Guaranteed thousands of dollars with her prank that had a poor production assistant searching in the ocean for a log. Also, Mary J. Blige recalled her strip club reconnaissance for her role on Rock of Ages; and Jason Schwarzman and Jimmy Fallon donned orange Jheri curls and matching sunglasses for their high-pitched "Little Pepper" duet.
