    "I think there's nothing Jimmy Fallon can't do," Cohen said. "He's got a great respect for what's passed, but he's totally fresh and new."

    "He sings, he dances, he does comedy [and] he does skits," he added. "He's hilarious. And everybody wants to be his best friend…I couldn't be happier for him."
