After weeks of speculation, at last Jimmy Fallon and Jay Leno confirm what we already sorta knew! Indeed, Fallon will be taking over hosting duties for Leno on 60-years-running institution The Tonight Show beginning 2014 after Leno‘s contract ends and the Show moves from West to East Coast.
To address the rumours, both Fallon and Leno put together a Musical Sketch featuring Tonight from West Side Story, where we learn that wow! the latter can actually sing amazingly well! Mostly funny, the Sketch also captures Leno‘s sadness as he reflects upon an ending chapter and Fallon‘s gratitude for the opportunity.
Watch it below:
Meanwhile, Fallon‘s Saturday Night Live Alumni and Friend Seth Meyers is said to be a lock to take-over Fallon‘s current gig on NBC‘s Late Night Franchise. More to come on this…
So basically, Seth Meyers is the new Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy Fallon is the new Jay Leno. And Jay Leno is leaving on-top.
