Jimmy Fallon to host SNL (as he prophesied)

Well, we've been hoping and asking for it for awhile, and it's finally coming this season!

Not only is this video a hilarious peek at vintage Baldwin and Fallon, it also reveals something astonishing: Jimmy Fallon is clearly psychic.

During this 1998 Christmas video, Fallon, while playing the "ghost of host future," shows a reluctant Baldwin a world where he comes back to host the show as a SNL alum.

"Apparently," he says. "I become a huge star in the future, and I host the show in 2011."

And just like that, it came true.

Fallon is scheduled to host the show alongside crooner Michael Bublé only a few days after his December 17 prediction.


Take a minute and watch it for yourself, or if you're in a hurry, skip to 02:55.
Excerpt (s.24 : ep.9) 05:47
The ghost of SNL future Jimmy Fallon haunts Alec and 8H:

Or this video here shows it at the beginning:

Jimmy Fallon announced today that he's going to host the December 17 episode of Saturday Night Live, with musical guest Michael Buble. It marks Fallon's first time hosting since he left the show in 2004, but fans shouldn't be too surprised to see him back in Studio 8H — not only has he done cameos on the show here and there, but back in 1998, SNL itself announced he'd host right around then. As you can see in the video, Alec Baldwin's monologue from a season 24 episode predicts exactly this: That Jimmy Fallon, as the host of Christmas future in this Christmas Carol riff, will host in December 2011. Most people remember this episode for its Schwetty Balls, but perhaps its prescience will become its new calling card!



Thanks to Anony for the scoop!

So it would be sweet if the Jimmy episode included John Goodman as a cast member and the "Don Pardo 9000". =^)

I hope Jimmy and Andy will do a digital short together. What do you think they will do?
