Jimmy Fallon must've thought the Stiller family would ace a game of charades on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC). Jerry Stiller and wife Anne Meara could use their comedy and improv skills against Fallon and son Ben Stiller, actors/funnymen in their own right.
But Jerry abandoned the main element of charades: acting. For 'It's a Wonderful Life,' he tackled the first word by saying, "It starts with a--" and creating an "i" with his arms, then motioning a "t" and then drawing the outline of an "s" with his finger. "I'm giving you three letters," he told his wife. Fallon burst out laughing. Time ran out before Jerry could, well, spell out the other words. "I've made a living from being a nitwit," he said, unfazed.
