How many characters from the Harry Potter books could you name in 20 seconds? Ten? Twenty, even? That’s exactly how Jimmy Fallon challenged Blake Lively on last night’s Tonight Show (June 20).
Blake was there to promote her new movie The Shallows, in which she plays a woman who survives a shark attack only to become stranded on a rock 200 yards from the shore, when the host invited her to participate in a game of “Know It All.” The categories up for grabs were British People, Four-Letter Words, and Spanish Words.
Blake immediately picked Harry Potter Characters. It turns out that not only is it a topic she knows a lot about, but she’s also not afraid to let her nerd flag fly. In a display of impressive knowledge, she brought little-known characters such as Filch, Cornelius Fudge, and Hedwig to the table.
And Jimmy? Well, despite claiming to have read the books and seen all the movies, his turn didn’t go so well. Let’s just say he starts with that little-known character “Harry Potter.”
In fact, his answers were so obvious, at one point Blake was forced to yell, “Come on, do better ones!”
