Horatio Sanz is spreading holiday cheer…

The 49-year-old Chilean-American actor and comedian reunited with his former Saturday Night Live cast mates Jimmy Fallon, Tracy Morgan and Chris Kattan for an encore performance of their low-tech, yet festive tune “I Wish It Was Christmas Today” on The Tonight Show, alongside pop diva Ariana Grande.

Donning holiday sweaters in a makeshift Winter Wonderland, it was as if the audience was transported to 2000 when the quartet performed the song for the first time on SNL

 With Sanz on lead vocals and Fallon on keys and backup, they awkwardly jammed out with Kattan and Morgan who were basically just there for low-impact dancing.

Grande was also there but in a moral support capacity. All she did was stand behind Kattan as he carried out his duties as designated keyboard holder.

She bounced with them and stared at the camera longingly as if she was taking a series of pouty Instagram selfies.

Jimmy Fallon & Jose Quintana

Quintana said he learned English by watching Fallon’s show, and now the 28-year-old Colombian pitcher regularly does interviews in English.

“I arrived in this country and watched your shows,” Quintana told Fallon. “So funny.”

Quintana taught Fallon how to introduce himself in Spanish, to tell people he hosts “The Tonight Show” and to ask others, “Can you pay for my thong?”

Fallon, a Boston Red Sox fan, attended the New York Yankees game against the White Sox on Tuesday night.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria watched “The Tonight Show” clip with his wife and called it “pretty funny.”

“He’s trying to get outside of the box, make sure that people see him as a well-rounded individual,” Renteria said of Quintana. “Hopefully, that’s an example for everyone else to get out there and relax and take advantage of some of the opportunities they’re going to be getting.

“I’ll tell you, he did a nice job with it.”

Leto Gives Jimmy Fallon Terrifying Gift from The Joker

The Joker’s on Jared Leto

It appears the 44-year-old part-Spanish actor/singer’s role as The Joker in the highly anticipated Suicide Squad has taken a hold of him.

Jared Leto

While the tales of Leto’s unhinged, bizarre behavior on the Suicide Squad set have become the stuff of legend, the Oscar-winning actor is having a hard time stepping out of the iconic bad boy persona, as evidenced by his trickster appearance on The Tonight Show on Monday night.

“The Joker is a big giver of gifts,” Leto explained to host Jimmy Fallon while seated on the couch and holding a small black box with a big red ribbon on it. “Have you guys heard about this? And he was thinking of you and wanted to pass off this gift especially for you.”

Fallon was suspicious, noting that he’d read and heard about things The Joker has done like gifting rats, so he approached the box with great caution. Spoiler alert: Jimmy did not like his present.
