Jimmy Fallon, star of “Late Nate with Jimmy Fallon,” will join a roster of seasoned professionals as they lead guests on a tour of the world’s largest working movie and television production facility. Fallon will introduce a series of entertaining videos on the HD monitor located within each tram car to augment the “live” narration of the Studio Tour Guides. Each clip features Fallon inserting himself into a variety of roles within a Universal Studios backlot location that replicate an array of movie scenes and depict how various setting are utilized in film production.
Jimmy Fallon said, “We really had fun with my filming role. We brought some writers out from our show and added some jokes; more play with the Studio Tour guides and tram drivers. The Tour itself is a classic, a really great experience. For anyone with any interest in show business, it’s all there; the glamour, the glitz, all the hard work that goes into making a movie or TV show can be experienced on the Universal Studios Hollywood Studio Tour. I’m proud to be part of it.”
