(Lone!) stars Jim Parsons and J.J. Watt will sit on the coveted couch next to Jimmy Fallon tonight and chat about television, football and—fingers crossed—Houston.

Parsons, an Emmy award-winning actor best known for portraying Sheldon Cooper on CBS' The Big Bang Theory, is a Houston native who received his undergraduate degree from UH and regularly appeared in performances at Stages Repertory Theatre. Parsons will be promoting the ninth season of TBBT, which celebrated its 200th episode this year. Bazinga!

Here's a clip of Parsons and Fallon battling Miles Teller and Wiz Khalifa in a tense game of Catchphrase last year. Will there be a rematch tonight?

Watt, while hailing from Wisconsin, proudly represents the Bayou City as the Texans' record-breaking Defensive End—preferably shirtless. This is the four-time NFL Pro Bowler's first appearance on The Tonight Show, where he'll most likely sport his new shoes for Reebok and promote his JJ Watt Foundation, which has provided more than $2 million dollars to middle school athletic programs and organizations. The real question is: Will there be another mug-shot?

Tune-in tonight at 10:35 p.m. on NBC and cheer on our boys. #texasforever
