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.
