Fallon and Timberlake first met around 2002 at the MTV Awards. Their “history of rap” routine is becoming quite legendary and the pair just performed part five on Friday night’s ‘Tonight’ show.
While we are on the subject Tonight Show-isms, Questlove of the musical group The Roots who also happens to be ‘The Tonight Show’s’ house band, will make a special guest appearance on NBC’s Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. He will play (lay rather) a corpse. That’s right folks. Not bad gigs for the boy from Philly. Any guesses on if Questlove’s signature hair pick will also make an appearance on Law and Order: SVU?
