Not many people know this, but Jimmy Fallon and Oprah Winfrey co-starred in an '80s soap titled Midnight Meadows. OK, not really—but the TV host, 40, and the Selma star, 60, pretended that they once played a husband and wife during a laugh-out-loud, auto-tuned sketch on Monday's Tonight Show.
"It was a great show...but the director at the time was just a...very interesting guy," Fallon recalled. "He was experimenting with audio." Winfrey remembered, too, saying, "He did that thing with the voices." According to Fallon, "He would change our voices during the scenes. I guess he thought it would make things more dramatic." In hindsight, the comedian admitted, "I'm not sure if it helped or hurt the show."
Fallon thought it would be best to let the audience decide by showing a series of clips.
