Well, this is an interesting piece of late night gossip!
Jimmy Fallon is more than likely replacing Jay Leno on Tonight Show, but who could warm Jimmy's Late Night seat when he leaves?
Seth Meyers, that's who!
The Saturday Night Live comedian could become the next late night talk show host and Jimmy and SNL creator, Lorne Michaels, will do WHATEVER IT TAKES to get Seth the gig!
A source dished:
“Lorne Michaels wants Seth to take over from Fallon. It would be perfect for him. Tina Fey’s name had also come up, but she has said she was too busy to do it.”
He has had a little bit of hosting experience on Live With Kelly, but he was beat out to replace Regis Philbin by Michael Strahan.
Seth obviously has the comedic timing for it. Hopefully that is that enough to convince NBC execs!
If you're good enough for Jimmy and Amy Poehler, than you're good enough for us!
We're rooting for you, Seth!
