Jay Leno Reminds Sylvester Stallone Why He Should Never Do a Musical (Video)

Sylvester Stallone told Jay Leno he will not be participating in the “Rocky” musical coming to Broadway early next year because his voice would turn it into “a haunted theater,” so in typical late-night talk show fashion, Leno showed the audience what Stallone was talking about. “I sang with Dolly Parton, then I realized, ‘God what a fool I am,’” Stallone said of his “Rhinestone” performance in 1984. “Oh my God, seriously.

Jay Leno Compares Russia to Nazi Germany, Meredith Vieira Calls for Sochi Protests (Video)

The jokes were set aside — at least for a minute — on Monday’s “Tonight Show,” as Meredith Vieira and Jay Leno tackled the debate surrounding the setting for the 2014 Winter Olympics. The two got deep for a bit on the NBC late night talk show, discussing their mixed feelings on the network’s coverage of the Sochi Games. Leno asked fellow NBC personality Vieira if she is excited about the upcoming event, to which she replied. “I have sort of mixed feelings given all the stuff that’s going on in Russia with Putin and the anti-gay legislation.” Also read:  Yahoo and NBC Extend Sports Partnership to 2014 Winter Olympics Vieira told Leno that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s politics created much internal debate about attending the Games versus boycotting them, but ultimately she and her colleagues decided that the event is about the athletes — a sentiment that many torn media members have shared in recent months. Vieira added, “But I really hope that people demonstrate there. I’m hoping that at least people wear the ribbons — and I think they will.” When Leno asked Vieira if she thinks Russia’s anti-gay laws will impact the Games, she replied, “I think Putin would be crazy to do anything during the time that people are there, but then, I think he’s a little off-the-wall.” Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/jay-leno-nazi-germany-sochi-winter-olympics-meredith-vieira

Paul Walker died in a fiery car crash while riding in a Porsche Carrera GT, which has been called a Car enthusiast Jay Leno found out just how easy it is to lose control of the vehicle -- which, in its stock form, has a V10 engine that puts out 612 horsepower -- when he tried to set a speed record in 2005 (not in the same car but in the same model).

Jay Leno on David Letterman: We Like Each Other, ‘He Still Makes Me Laugh’ (Video)

The interviewer became the interviewee on Friday’s “Tonight Show,” when guest Andy Cohen turned the tables on Jay Leno over his longtime beef with David Letterman.
