    Jimmy Fallon Doubles Down on Hosting Duties With Universal Studios Gig

    Is Jimmy Fallon ditching his Late Night gig for Universal Studios hosting duties?

    Not exactly.

    The talk show host, however, is sporting one mean 1940s-style bellhop suit to take Universal Studios tour-goers on the ultimate ride just in time for summer.

    So what can Fallon fans expect the next time they hit the mega-theme park?

    Essentially, the bellhop suit is just the beginning.

    Park visitors taking the tour will get a comedic, behind-the-scenes look at various locations on the Universal Studios backlot, featuring skits and songs by Fallon on monitors throughout the ride (the jokester even manages to insert himself into movie scenes while he's at it). 

    "We really had fun with filming my role," Fallon said in a statement. "We brought some writers out from our show and added some jokes, more play with the Studio Tour guides, the tram drivers and we added a song or two. The tour itself is a classic, a really great experience. For anyone with any interest in show business, it's all there: the glamour, the glitz, all the hard work that goes into making a movie or a TV show can be experienced on the Universal Studios Hollywood Studio Tour. I'm very happy to be a part of it."

    So, tell us…will you be checking out Fallon's back lot tour this summer?
