Hugh Jackman, The Tonight Show

YouTube

Get your minds out of the gutter, gentlemen!

When it comes to a game with Jimmy Fallon, it seems even the most innocent topics can go awry. During Monday night's episode of The Tonight Show, the late-night host gathered up the show's announcer, Steve HigginsHugh Jackman and his Eddie the Eagle co-star Taron Egerton for a few rounds of the show's signature game, "Catchphrase." 

For those unfamiliar with the activity, the players gather around a table in teams of two and take turns pulling cards from the stack. Each card contains a phrase and one player offers their teammate clues without actually saying it so that the other can guess. Think Taboo on live television. 

Naturally, some chaos can ensue in these kinds of conditions and it certainly did as the adrenaline escalated between rounds.  The incessant beeped didn't exactly help things. Instead, it just built up the pressure between the players until the louder alarm sounded and ended the game. 

While they started off with some modest phrases—morning breath, butt dial, false alarm to name a few—it was clear Jackman had his head in the game when he did a perfect impression of James Bond's "Shaken, Not Stirred" tagline for his teammate. Someone get this man a contract!

However, things got a little funky when it was the actor's turn to give hints to Egerton, this time for the phrase, "Go With the Flow." The Tony Award winner immediately began making flowing motions with his arms, though when he kept waving in the direction of his crotch, his game partner got a bit confused. 

"What?" Egerton shrieked as Jackman accidentally waved around his pants. While Jackman kept repeating "just relax," his co-star couldn't figure out the prompt. 

"Orgasm? I don't know!" he shouted out. 

Ummm, not exactly, Taron, but thanks for trying.
