Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
Long renowned comic talent, JIMMY FALLON's ability to deliver versatile, standout performances on both film and TV screens have allowed him to join the exclusive ranks as one of Saturday Night Live's standout alumni. Fallon's multi-faceted abilities to act, sing and host has placed him at the forefront of a diverse line-up of television and film projects, while staying grounded in his standup roots. Recently, Fallon was officially named to succeed Jay Leno and take over the legendary Tonight Show on NBC beginning in 2014.
In 2009, Fallon took over the Late Night legacy started by David Letterman and Conan O'Brien and premiered "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." The show immediately garnered attention for its viral videos, audience games, and A-list guests. Fallon's choice of house-band, The Roots, has also been universally praised.
Fallon first garnered attention in 1998 when he joined the cast of "Saturday Night Live" and quickly became an audience favorite for his impressions of Jerry Seinfeld, John Travolta, and Adam Sandler, as well as spot-on musical impressions of Justin Timberlake, Jack White, and Enrique Iglesias. Fallon created many memorable recurring characters on "SNL," including "Nick Burns," the sarcastic tech support representative; rowdy Boston teen "Sully" known for playing tonsil hockey with "Denise," as played by Rachel Dratch; and the explosive "Barry Gibb" opposite Justin Timberlake in "The Barry Gibb Talk Show." In 2000, Fallon became the co-anchor of the popular segment "Weekend Update" alongside Tina Fey.
During his six-year stint on "SNL," Fallon ventured off into other television roles, including his role of "Second Lieutenant George Rice" in Tom Hanks' and Steven Spielberg's 2001 Emmy Award-winning miniseries "Band of Brothers."
Always a favorite among the MTV audience, Fallon co-hosted the 2001 MTV Movie Awards with Kirsten Dunst and then again in 2005 as a solo act. He also hosted the MTV Video Music Awards in 2002.
In 2005, Fallon participated in Cameron Diaz's MTV eco-friendly travel show "Trippin,'" where he traveled to Africa to educate viewers about one of the world's most unique and fragile ecosystems.
Fallon made his feature film debut in Cameron Crowe's rock 'n roll road film, ALMOST FAMOUS where he played band manager "Dennis Hope." He has since appeared alongside Christina Ricci in Woody Allen's ANYTHING ELSE, with Queen Latifah in the action-comedy TAXI and opposite Drew Barrymore in the blockbuster romantic comedy FEVER PITCH, the Farrelly Brothers' homage to Boston Red Sox fanaticism. More recently, Fallon starred with Lucy Liu in the comedy THE YEAR OF GETTING TO KNOW US and the roller derby feature WHIP IT opposite Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore.
Fallon is married and lives in New York City.
