Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon: A Comedy Love Story
It's a match made in comedy heaven.
Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon's meet-cute started at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards. As they told GQ, Timberlake emerged from a giant boom box with his *NSYNC band members, and host Fallon, still a cast member on "Saturday Night Live," cracked a joke about needing 150,000 batteries.
And so a bromance was born. Over the next decade, they moved on in their careers -- Timberlake as a successful solo act and movie actor, and Fallon to his own "Late Night." But they still get together to make us laugh. Check out a timeline of their comedy friendship:
2003: Timberlake's first "SNL" hosting gig
Timberlake's first time as host (he'd been the musical guest before with *NSYNC) brought us the amazing creation that is "The Barry Gibb Talk Show." It would become a recurring sketch throughout the years, even after Fallon left "SNL" in 2004.
Another memorable Timberlake-Fallon collaboration was their impersonation of Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey:
2005: Return of the Gibb
Timberlake wasn't hosting this time, but his then-girlfriend Cameron Diaz was. And so Fallon returned to "SNL," along with his "Fever Pitch" movie co-star, Drew Barrymore, to revive "The Barry Gibb Talk Show."
2006: Timberlake's second time as host
This infamous episode will be remembered as the debut of "D--- in a Box," but even though JT had a new friend in Andy Samberg, his old buddy Fallon showed up for another take on their classic sketch.
