Empire star Taraji P. Henson stopped by The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon to play a round of ‘The Acting Game.’ Fallon and Henson went head to head, answering a telephone and acting out scenario in the most “sincerely dramatic way possible.”

In one of the scenarios, Taraji’s improv skills are put to the test when she’s challenged with playing her Empire character ‘Cookie’ as she finds out from NASA that she will be stranded out in space for six more months. Later, she’s challenged with talking to the husband friend who was calling to explain why he wasn’t in the delivery room for the birth of their triplets, while Fallon suggest Netflix options to Queen Elizabeth with a bad case of gas.
