Jimmy Fallon's Empire Parody: Watch the Tonight Show Host Take on Lucious

Empire fans, there’s a new Lyon in the den, and his name is… Jimmy Fallon?

The Tonight Show host donned his finest purple scarf and questionable wig for Tuesday’s spoof/salute to Empire, appropriately titled Jimpire, bringing several of the Fox drama’s stars along for the ride — though even Cookie herself can’t hold a candle to Tonight Show announcer Steve Higgins as “Higgy.” (Speaking of Higgy, I will never be able to unsee his “This is an ass!” moment. Never ever.)

Both Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard appear in the 10-minute spoof; Howard confronts Fallon in the hallway, while Henson renames Higgy “Little Debbie” because he’s “one fake-ass Cookie.”

    That was kinda loose, until Cookie got what’s hers. Great parody.

  2. That was the funniest thing I’ve seen a while. I am a huge fan. I love your show, it makes me forget that I am 45 in a nursing home. Please don’t stop making me laugh.

    The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon is pathetic. The band members are pathetic as well in appearance and an ill sense of humor and talent. Never will i watch this show. It sucks with a Capital S.
