Jimmy will leave the comfort of his late night show to emcee television’s biggest night!
Jimmy will host the 2012 ceremony, the New York Daily News reports.
“I hope to be able to do for the Emmys this year what Eddie Murphy did for the Oscars,” Jimmy joked, referencing the fact that Eddie was hired to host the Oscars this past February, then quit after friend Brett Ratner was fired from his gig directing the show.
Do you think Jimmy is a good fit to host the Emmys?
