JJ Abrams has never had an interview quite like the one on this week's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
He was on the programme to promote the US transfer of hit West End show The Play That Goes Wrong and, in hilarious fashion, his interview swiftly went very wrong as the play's creators were introduced.
It all started to go downhill when Henry Shields got his foot trapped in the curtain, leading to a series of mishaps as co-writers Jonathan Sayer and Henry Lewis rearranged Fallon's set.
But fear not, despite Abrams's ashamed reactions, it was definitely all a set-up inspired by their comedy.
The Play That Goes Wrong centres around a fictional amateur dramatic society attempting to stage a murder mystery play, only for their attempts to stage it to go gloriously wrong.
It was revealed last year that Abrams would be bringing the show to the Lyceum Theatre on Broadway from April 2 and it will star the original West End cast, which included the three writers.
"When I saw The Play That Goes Wrong on the West End, I hadn't laughed that hard, seen something as preposterously absurd or wonderfully hilarious in ages," Abrams enthused.
"To be part of the team bringing this inspired comedy to Broadway is a true honour. Whatever happens, I'm saving the Playbill."
If you don't fancy hopping over to America to see The Play That Goes Wrong, it's still running in the UK at the Duchess Theatre.
