    Hugh Jackman and Nick Offerman teamed up against Jimmy Fallon and Susan Sarandon for a hilarious "Tonight Show" version of the famous TV game show “Password.”

    In the innuendo-filled game, contestants give each other one-word clue’s in hopes that their partner will guess the secret “password.” If they fail, the opposing team gets a shot at the clue.

    The “Wolverine” star went first and had to describe “Dolphin” to his partner Offerman. Jackman hinted the word “flipper” and the “Parks and Rec” actor effortlessly answered correctly.

    Next, it was Sarandon’s turn to give the “Tonight Show” host his clue: “oyster.”

    “Oh God, this is not easy,” the actress griped.

    The Academy Award winner struggled to brainstorm the perfect word, and even resorted to using a little ESP as she stared deeply into Fallon's eyes. It worked.

    “Pearl,” Sarandon said.

    “Oyster,” Fallon responded.

    In the third round, the game intensified as the password “toupee" proved to be hard to describe in one word. Fallon apprehensively said “piece” and Sarandon, confusing it for “peace,” replies “war.”

    Luckily for Jackman, adding “rug” to Fallon’s original clue provided enough information for Offerman to guess the hairpiece correctly, and gave their team the lead.

    The last clue “feather,” though seemingly easy, also proved difficult for Offerman to characterize in one word, sending the password to team Fallon.

    In the end, the host and actress were able to even the game after Fallon responded correctly to Sarandon's clue: "bird."  

    “Its a tie!” Fallon wailed. “Then we’re going to have a rematch. You guys have to come back tomorrow night.”

    Jackman, who stopped by the show Monday to promote his latest movie "Pan," eagerly accepted the challenge.  The actor also taught Fallon the proper way to eat a Vegemite sandwhich after hearing the host talk "smack" about Australia's famous spread.
