Jimmy Fallon is trolling the red carpet for Tonight Show guests.

While speaking with E!'s Giuliana Rancic, Fallon stopped the interview and invited Don Cheadle up to the mic.

"When I take over The Tonight Show, would you be one of my guests?" Fallon asked the House of Lies star.

"I guess," Cheadle responded.

"Did we just get interview bombed?" Rancic asked.

"I keep trying to get him on my show … I don't know what to do about that guy," Fallon said. "I'm trolling for guests."

Cheadle wasn't the only interview bomb. Kerry Washington snuck in Seth Meyers chat with Ryan Seacrest and Jennifer Lawrence interview bombed Taylor Swift.

Fallon takes over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno on February 17. "It's exciting," Fallon said. The former Saturday Night Live star is taking The Tonight Show back to New York to the same studio Johnny Carson hosted from in the early Tonight Show days.

"It's goosebumps," Fallon said.
