Last Night on Late Night: Absolutely Bananas: a Fire Alarm, Unscripted On-Camera Walk-By, and James Van Der Beek on Conan

Last night, late night was bananas. In Conan alone, a fire alarm went off in the middle of James Van Der Beek's interview (culprit: burnt popcorn at the nurse's station); Santa Claus made a cameo appearance; and the cue card guy committed an unscripted walk-by in front of the camera — all while Conan sat splattered in fake blood from a previous self-defense segment. Plus: Chelsea Handler threw her gift from Milla Jovovich — a zombie foot — right at the Resident Evil star's head (talk about ungratefulness); Emma Watson and Jimmy Fallon did jazz hands and Grease dance moves (so now we know she can dance); and Dave Matthews has hyperactive sweat glands.
