Alan Rickman finally got his sweet, chemically-induced revenge on Jimmy Fallon.

Rickman came on to the show to promote the first film he’s directed in nearly 20 years. But first, he had to get down to business. 

He had a bone to pick with Fallon, because during his last appearance he was asked about Alan Rickman impressions—and then Fallon and Benedict Cumberbatch had an Alan Rickman-off the very next day.

So then Rickman made him apologize after sucking up helium. Thankfully, he joined in on the fun too.
