Jimmy Fallon: What a nice guy! So nice, in fact, that he’s totally cool spending most of his SNL promos ceding the spotlight to somebody who isn’t even present – Justin Timberlake, who will join his pal Fallon on this weekend’s show.
Nominally, Fallon is hosting the show, while Timberlake is just there to sing. But knowing these guys, it’s safe to guess that Timberlake is going to play a bigger role than most musical guests. And given Fallon’s improvised promos song – featuring an adorably serious Kate McKinnon, channeling Fred Armisen and Kristen Wiig’s Garth and Kat – perhaps we can expect the future Tonight Show host to crash SNL’s musical stage as well.
