Kevin Sessums interviews Jimmy Fallon as he prepares to take Conan O'Brien's Late Night reins on Monday night. Sessums discovers that Fallon is ready to fuck Casey Affleck, hopes to have Sacha Baron Cohen on as Bruno, reveals that Will Ferrell reveals his own penis to the entire audience in his new Broadway show about George W. Bush, and might just ask his first guest Robert De Niro about his gay dad:
SESSUMS: What’s so interesting about De Niro is that his background doesn’t jibe with his street-tough image. His father was an artist who was friends with Anais Nin and Henry Miller and Tennessee Williams, and lived his life at times as an openly gay man. Do you have the balls to ask him about that—if you cleared it with him first maybe?
FALLON: Absolutely. If he wanted to talk about his dad, of course. I don’t want to come off as threatening to my guests or have anyone afraid of me. But I’m not afraid to talk about that kind of stuff. I’ve got the balls. I didn’t want to just have a roster of guests that were all my friends to come and pat me on the back. I just didn’t want to go, “And here’s Tina Fey,” and she’ll come out as my old SNL Weekend Update partner and do a bit and it’ll be great, but it would also be too easy. She is going be a guest though, because she’s now the most-famous person in the country. She said right off the bat to me, anything you need I’ll be there. So I went, 'Second night?' And she said sure.
