Martin Short And Jimmy Kimmel Have Blowout Fight, Talk 'Madagascar 3' (VIDEO)

Martin Short stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Tuesday night to talk about "Madagascar 3," and things were going smoothly with all of the showbiz talk. You know, a regular interview.

But then the topic of Father's Day came up and things took a turn for the weird. At the mention of Kimmel's daughter, the host got unexpectedly heated, and he leapt over his desk to tackle Short in mock anger.

The result was the two men rage-wrestling right there on the stage, with Kimmel pinned to the ground and Short alternating between choking the host and splashing water on his face.

Was it a typical interview? No. But it's somehow fitting considering Kimmel's latest YouTube challenge.
