Robert De Niro will be Jimmy Fallon’s first guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in two weeks. You know what’s funny is I didn’t even think about the pressure of booking a first guest on a show until now. I wonder what the thought process is with booking your first guest EVER on a talk show…are they afraid of offending someone by not asking them first, or do people get offended that they aren’t the first guest?
Either way, super cool for Robert De Niro and for Jimmy. Jimmy’s other first week guests include: Tina Fey, Jon Bon Jovi, Santigold, Cameron Diaz, Billy Crudup, Serena Williams, Ludacris, Donald Trump, Drew Barrymore, and Mario Batali. I’m not a Jimmy Fan, but he’s actually starting to grow on me a little now that the reality has set in that late night is taking a shift.
