Jimmy Fallon Plays To Win In ‘Esquire’ Interview

Jimmy Fallon - Esquire

Although the Late Night wars are a completely different (and more friendly) beast since Jay Leno and David Letterman moved on, Jimmy Fallon understands competition is part of the process. The Tonight Show host graces the cover of the December/January issue of Esquire magazine, and he gave the mag candid insight on his day job.

“It’s good,” said Fallon during his chat with Esquire. “It just makes everyone work a little bit harder. This is my Madison Square Garden. This is my home court, I’m comfortable here – this is where I play the best. I’ve learned from the best coaches and played with the best players. And I’m not worried. I play to win.”

As for new late night hosts on the scene, Fallon also has some logical insight on how Stephen Colbert will flourish: “We’re totally ourselves. And that’s the only way you’re going to succeed. You have to be yourself, or else you can tell that it’s ungenuine.”

I don’t think “ungenuine” passes off as a real word, but I’m just a work at home blogger and Fallon is pretty much the king of Late Night (or is it Jimmy Kimmel? – you decide).
