There is such a thing as being too old to host "The Tonight Show," Jay Leno concedes.
"You know, when you're 40 and you're talking to a 25-year-old supermodel, it's sexy. When you're 64 and you're talking to the supermodel, you're the creepy old guy," says Leno, who is in fact 64 and is now almost a year removed from giving up the venerable TV franchise for good last February.
Put another way:
"OK, you know, I'm sorry, I don't know Jay-Z's music. And at my age, if I did know Jay-Z's music, there's something wrong with me."
Maybe true. But there's nothing wrong with Leno's devotion to funny, as he'll doubtless prove Thursday night...
