Quentin Tarantino to direct Conan O'Brien in 'Late Shift 2: The Rolling Thunder of Revenge'

As guest Quentin Tarantino told Conan O’Brien last night, the comedy gods have been dancing an Irish jig since Conan started letting loose on NBC on The Tonight Show. (Last night’s digs were bilingualvisual, and involved Norm Macdonald, who must be funnier than I think he is.) As for what Conan should do next, Tarantino suggested a sequel to the 1996 TV movie The Late Shift: He’d call it Late Shift 2: The Rolling Thunder of Revenge. He even performed the trailer’s voiceover, which made me think that Tarantino should be the voice of every preview… Enjoy it below.

NBC has confirmed O’Brien’s guest list for his remaining episodes: Adam Sandler, Joel McHale and musical guest Joss Stone drop by tonight; Robin Williams and musical guest Barry Manilow on Thursday; and Tom Hanks and Will Ferrell on Friday. Which of them are you most looking forward to?
