Footage of Nic Cage cartwheeling onto Terry Wogan’s chat show in 1992 resurfaced on the internet this week, leading to many discussions of whether The Artist Formerly Known As Nicolas Kim Coppola throwing wads of cash at an amazed audience is the finest chat show entrance of all time. It's a tough call, and to help you make it, here are 13 other joyfully ludicrous on-screen handshakes from Hollywood’s great and good.

Interviewee: Kevin Bacon
Interviewer: Jimmy Fallon
Gimmick: Dancing with loose feet

Though he enjoys dancing with Sam Rockwell more than anything else in the universe, Jimmy Fallon decided to ban foot-tapping outright for just one night. "Say it ain't so!" and so forth. But with Kevin Bacon in the studio for an interview, it made sense – you don't want that guy busting a groove all over your nice polished floor. But then… Kevin Bacon doesn't play by the rules. Kevin Bacon strips to his vest and pounces on some parallel bars. And Kevin Bacon has quite the following. Needless to say, dancing ensues. Deal with it, Fallon.

9 you missed another Bill Murray
I know I've seen this but I couldn't seem to find it but I'm sure it's with Letterman, who does the intro for Bill Murray and it cuts to outside where a car pulls up the boot opens and two guys drag a man with a sack over his head out walk him into the theatre, sit him down, takes the bag off and he acts like he was kidnapped and taken there against his will. Can anyone confirm I'm not dreaming this? More
