The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
It's been a helluva journey for Jimmy Fallon, from "Saturday Night Live" cast member, to a brief attempt at a movie career, to late night staple, now sitting behind one of the most legendary talk show desks in TV history.

With Billy Crystal wheezing through a pretty uninspired encore gig last year at the Oscars (replacing Eddie Murphy who departed after Brett Ratner stepped down from producing the show after his "Tower Heist" press tour meltdown), and a pretty lethargic James Franco and hyper Anne Hathaway flopping twelve months before, it's no surprise that the Academy is looking for fresh blood. And it appears they're hoping their answer can be found in channeling some of the talent originating from "Saturday Night Live."
