As we're still mourning the tragic death of Prince last week, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon continues to pay tribute to the music legend with heartfelt performances.

On Tuesday's show, D'Angelo took the stage with Prince cover band Princess – made up of Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum — for an emotional performance of Sometimes It Snows in April.

With the entire stage draped in purple lighting, D'Angelo played the keyboard as Rudolph and Lieberum sang the backup harmonies on the 1986 track.

The upcoming film Angry Birds already boasts quite an impressive cast.

Jason Sudeikis, Peter Dinklage, Maya Rudolph, and Blake Shelton are just a few big names lending their voices to the feathered flick.

Now, it looks like yet another A-lister is flying into the coop!

It's been reported that Sean Penn has joined the cast of the animated film to play a large red bird named Terrence!

Don't expect to hear too much of the Oscar-winner's voice in the film based on the video game of the same name because Terrence only communicates through a series of grunts and growls.

Sounds like a pretty easy paycheck — the 55-year-old can literally do that in his sleep! LOLz

Even though we won't be hearing any riveting dialogue from Penn, we're sure he will grunt and groan with serious conviction!

Hear the actor's vocal samplings when Angry Birds hits theaters on May 20!

The New Angry Birds Trailer Finally Makes The Movie Look Like The Game… Also, There's One Very Fowl Pee Joke…

| Filed under: Film FlickersBlake SheltonMaya RudolphBirdsStuff 4 KidzJason SudeikisPeter Dinklage

This… doesn't look as awful as it should.

When we first heard that they were making a movie version of Angry Birds, our initial reaction was that Hollywood had officially lost its mind.

Well, the second trailer for the popular video game dropped Tuesday night and now that we can finally see the plot of the movie, it actually looks pretty fun!

Video: Meet The Hatchlings Of The Angry Birds Movie!

As you probably imagined, the movie will follow Jason Sudeikis' Red as he is forced to overcome his temper to save his naive feathered brethren from the kleptomaniacal pigs, but at least now we have confirmation this won't just be a two-hour clip of birds flying into blocks.

Make sure to catch Jason alongside Peter Dinklage, Maya Rudolph, Blake Shelton, Kate McKinnon, Keegan-Michael Key, Tony Hale, Bill Hader, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, and even Smosh when Angry Birds flies into theaters May 20!

Also, there's a legit water sports scene… which seems like an odd choice for a children's movie. LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out the second official Angry Birds trailer (above)!!!
