Jimmy Fallon lines up a daytime gig: He'll help guide tours at Universal Studios Hollywood

Universal Studios

Visitors to the studio tour at Universal Studios Hollywood this spring are in for a surprise: One of their guides will be Jimmy Fallon, the host of NBC’s  "Late Night" show.

Fallon Not in person, of course. Fallon has taped commentary, jokes and other material that will be shown on video monitors aboard the trams as they wend their way through Universal’s backlot. His bits will be integrated with the traditional spiel from the live tour guides on board.

Actually, the arrangement shouldn’t come as a complete surprise: NBC and Universal are part of the same company, NBCUniversal.

Universal hasn't set a specific date for the launch of the tours with Fallon.

It would be great PR for him to actually do a few tours in person. With today's social networking, it doesn't take many people to make something like that go viral. Look what happened when Lady Gaga showed up at a gay club in Louisville. It got more press than any of her her concert appearances.

This has got to be better than the stupid Access Hollywood tie-in they used to have...in fact, I can't see how it could be worse.

CLYDE STUBBPIELD IS THE WORST DRUMMER IN THE WORLD..AND HE,S A LIAR..WHEN YOU SEE JAMES BROWN VIDEO YOU DON,T SEE CLYDE YOU SEE DON JUAN TIGER MARTIN ON DRUMS AND CLYDE WAS NOT A J,B BAND MEMBER AND SONGS HE SAY HE RECORDED WAS TIGER MARTIN ON DRUMS CHECK YOUR MUSIC HISTORY LOOK AT THE VIDEO,S THEY ARE SHOWING ON MR BROWN AND YOU WILL SEE TIGER MARTIN PLAYING WITH CATFISH AND BOOTSY NOT CLYDE AND ALL THE JAMES BROWN GREATIST HITS TIGER MARTIN IS THE ONE ON DRUMS THANK YOU MR DON JUAN TIGER MARTIN
