Jimmy Fallon, Madden All-Star

Jimmy Fallon in Madden NFL 10 When the cover athlete for the next edition of Madden NFL, Larry Fitzgerald, Jr., visited Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last week, he brought some video footage of the game to share as well as a special clip for the host himself.  The clip's not exceeding funny, but it's a nice example of video game-related celebrities getting some equal time on a late night talk show along with actors, musicians, and other pop culture personalities.

I think we still have a ways to go before Shigeru Miyamoto comes out of the green room to be interviewed, but at least we're finally on our way. I've been watching late night talk shows since I was old enough to sneak out of bed in the middle of the night (getting my start with Johnny Carson and the old 12:30 David Letterman), so I'm glad to finally see the gaming industry start to gain parity with Hollywood when it comes to bedtime comedy entertainment.

Also, this is where I brag that I have tickets to see The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien the week that I'm in Los Angeles for E3.
