Jimmy Fallon's "Tonight Show" games continue to get more elaborate. On Monday's show, the host assembled Emmy winner Jeff Daniels, Grammy winner Usher and Nick Jonas to play a version of Pyramid, based on the beloved old game show of the same name.

Fallon has to keep topping himself night after night with these games, so we'll probably be seeing a re-creation of the "Price is Right" studio inside the "Tonight Show" studio sometime before the February sweeps.

So how did the players do? Well, we got to see Jeff Daniels twerk. But considering the things we saw him do in "Dumb and Dumber," twerking was actually a lot classier.

Meanwhile, Nick Jonas revealed his complete and utter lack of any knowledge when it comes to gangster movies. Not even the world's most obvious Fallon-as-Pacino-in-"Scarface" impression could crack Jonas' blank veneer. The guy just doesn't know gangster movies.

But, apparently, Fallon does, as demonstrated by his relatively obscure clues to get Jonas to say "Goodfellas." He didn't bother to do Joe Pesci's "How am I funny?" speech. He did lines only real fans could remember.

Fallon, however, saved the day with his knowledge of famous Bobs.

When the game is your idea, it's a safe bet that you're going to win it. Daniels, meanwhile, looked like he just wanted to go get a nap.

Now, how long until Fallon gives his audience a re-creation of "The Amazing Race" with Eric Stonestreet, Katy Perry and Lorde? Really, the sky's the limit.
