Video: Karl-Anthony Towns gets stuck in a phone booth with Kevin Spacey


Have you ever tried to fit into photo booth alongside a 6'11" NBA center?

Well Kevin Spacey has, as he was joined on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon by none other than the Minnesota Timberwolves No. 1 draft pick Karl-Anthony Towns.

In the show's "Phone Booth" sketch, Spacey and Fallon went head to head answering trivia questions. A wrong answer adds a celebrity added to your booth, a right answer puts a celebrity in your opponent's booth.

Spacey's first wrong answer meant he was joined by comedian Keegan-Michael Key – with plenty of space left over – but then a correct answer from Fallon brought out the towering Timberwolf.

You can watch Towns' entrance and subsequent squeeze in the video above, coming in at around the 2-minute mark.

The trio were then joined by actress Mae Whitman and "American Pharaoh" jockey Victor Espinoza.

Fortunately, Spacey managed to win the game before the entrance of the last celebrity guest – Sesame Street's Big Bird.
