Famous for making America laugh on Saturday Night Live as the co-anchor of Weekend Update beside Tina Fey, he left the humorous cast in 2004 to pursue a film career, and has had roles in Almost Famous, Band of Brothers, and Taxi, among others.
Fallon married Nancy Juvonen, Drew Barrymore‘s producing partner, in 2007.
The comedian joined the late night talk show circuit as host of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (replacing Conan O’Brien) in March 2009, with Robert DeNiro, Justin Timberlake and Van Morrison as his first guests.
Fallon and his wife welcomed a daughter in July 2013.
