Back in the Clinton Years my oldest son, Jonathan, played Young Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show" about a dozen times. Now he's a USC film school grad (who just got a new job working for a major videogame company up in Silicon Valley) and he and his director buddy Kareem Dimashkie (with a throw-in by Jackie, me and our friend Don Most) put this video together in anticipation of the new "The Jay Leno Show."
"The Adventures of Jay Clone" is based on the concept that Jay Leno was cloned by NBC years ago as an insurance policy to protect its comedy investment and now his young copy -- who's never had a date, driven a car or gone Jaywalking -- escapes to discover the real world and live out his genetic predisposition to comedy!
It stars Don Most as "Doc" and Jonathan Zabel as "Junior." You no doubt remember Don Most for his portrayal of Ralph Malph on the sitcom "Happy Days," something that's given him worldwide fans ever since.
This version of "The Adventures of Jay Clone" is hosted on Vimeo and can be watched in HD by clicking on the screen rather than just hitting play and watching it through this blog. Sometimes there are some streaming issues, but the quality is very good.
