JIMMY FALLON ("Hot Tub” Johnny Rocket), recently debuted on television in his own talk show, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” The renowned comic's talent and ability to deliver versatile, standout performances on the screen has allowed him to join the exclusive ranks as one of those "Saturday Night Live” alumni at the forefront of a diverse line-up of television and film projects, while always staying grounded in his stand-up roots.

Fallon is reunited with Drew Barrymore with whom he starred in the romantic comedy, FEVER PITCH, the Farrelly brothers' homage to Boston Red Sox fanaticism. He made his feature film debut in Cameron Crowe's ALMOST FAMOUS playing band manager "Dennis Hope."

He will next be seen starring opposite Lucy Liu and Sharon Stone in the new comedy THE YEAR OF GETTING TO KNOW US, which premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.

Fallon fist garnered attention in 1998 when he joined the cast of "Saturday Night Live” quickly becoming an audience favorite for his impressions of Jerry Seinfeld, John Travolta, Adam Sandler and spot-on musical impressions of Pearl Jam, Counting Crows, The Cure and Alanis Morissette. Fallon created many memorable recurring characters on "SNL” including "Nick Burns" the sarcastic tech support representative and Boston teen "Sully" known for playing tonsil hockey with "Zazu" played by Rachel Dratch. In 2000, Fallon made history by becoming the co-anchor of the popular segment "Weekend Update" alongside Tina Fey.
