Jimmy Fallon's late show nets The Roots as house band
Jimmy Fallon's late night talk show just got a little more interesting. After a series of rumors, the ex-Saturday Night Live funnyman confirmed via his video blog that The Roots will be his house band when he takes over for Conan O'Brien March 2.
What this means for The Roots, in terms of touring and recording, is still unclear. The group's latest record, Rising Down, was released in April. Here's hoping the band finds some way to integrate its awesomely dirty hit "The Seed 2.0" into each and every show.
