Former Satuday Night Live cast member Jimmy Fallon has been named host the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards, which will air on NBC on August 29. Fallon hosts his own late night talk show.
"Jimmy was the natural choice as one of the most promising and likable young entertainers who will now have the chance to display his many talents on television's biggest night," said Paul Telegdy, executive VP at NBC. "His proven skills as a comedian and host -- as well as his openness to new ideas -- will fully engage audiences and ultimately deliver a lively Emmy telecast." Fallon was notorious for erupting into giggling fits during his own SNL skits – ever watch Fallon and Justin Timberlake do the Barry Gibb Talk Show, where neither can keep a straight face?- so this telecast should prove to be a fun one.
Executive producer Don Mischer said, "Jimmy has many talents. He can sing, he can dance, he does impersonations, and he does it gracefully and with ease. I think he'll make a terrific host and we are really looking forward to working with him." Perhaps J Fall will break into a dance routine?
