It’s the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon!
We’re only a few months away from hearing that intro live on-air!
But as Jimmy prepares to take over the famed NBC show from Jay Leno, who will be brought out as his first guest?!
It can't be just anybody! The first ass on that new Tonight Show couch has to be a big, BIG star! And Jimmy admitted recently, he knows who it will be!
Grrr! C’mon Jimbo! Spill!
Fallon wouldn’t give a name, but the planning for much of the first few weeks is already in place! Jimmy admitted:
"I know the first guest, kind of. I don’t think [the opening] will be a pretaped bit. I probably want to do it live.”
F it! We’ll do it live!
Live from New York, in fact! Jimmy also talked about how excited he was to have the Tonight Show back in NYC, but also warned that he’s not going to immediately change just because of his new gig. He explained:
"It’s exciting in New York. It makes more sense in general. I don’t know why it was in L.A. for that long. NBC always said it was for the bookings. We’ve had no problems booking our show. I had the president of the United States on. When I think of L.A. I think of sunshine and people rollerblading and eating sushi. When I think of New York I think of Times Square and night life and Broadway. It’s the city that never sleeps. The show is going to grow up,. I’m growing up. But I’m not going to actively change. My wardrobe won’t change. My toupee will stay the same color.”
So long as you stay as HIGHlarious as you are now, we’ll be sure to tune in, Jim!
