Jimmy Fallon geeks out over Elijah Wood's friendship with The Bachelor Nick Viall
The host is so jealous that Wood is buddies with Nick Viall.
Jimmy Fallon and Elijah Wood should host their own The Bachelor after-show. After Fallon lost his mind on The Tonight Show Thursday over Wood’s friendship with Nick Viall, the pair embarked on a captivating discussion of the Bachelor’s “real”-ness, Corinne’s “platinum vagina,” and host Chris Harrison’s habit of popping up unexpectedly.
“I’ve known Nick before he became the Bachelor, which is the craziest thing,” Wood said. As he explained, his buddy Kyle first met Viall at Lollapalooza and starting hanging out with him in Los Angeles.
“He was just around and I would hang out with him and I kind of knew about his Bachelorette experiences and found it fascinating,” Wood added in reference to a photo he took with Viall. “So I knew he was the Bachelor before it was announced and everything,” prompting an audible gasp from Fallon.
“Here’s the thing about Nick, I think a lot of people question whether he is real or if that’s really him on the show in the way that he’s presenting himself, and that is him,” Wood promised the host. “He’s a very genuine individual. He has a lot of integrity. I can unequivocally say that.”
