Charles Grodin Makes Jimmy Fallon His New 'Late Night' Punching Bag (VIDEO)

When Charles Grodin has something to promote, that can only mean one thing: He's going to stop by a late night show, usually David Letterman's, and bust the host's chops. On Tuesday, he opted to expand his horizons to another late night host: Jimmy Fallon.

The "Midnight Run" actor has been going on late night shows since 1973, and has become well known for his persona of a temperamental crank who has better things to do with his time than talk to some clown in a suit.

And he let Fallon remember: "Not since I watched Martha Stewart cook chicken wings have I seen such entertainment," Grodin grimaced.

"I'm furious," Grodin deadpanned, complaining that he did not get paid for appearing on the talk show.

An interesting bit of trivia that sprang up in this interview: Fallon's studio, Studio 6B at Rockefeller Center, was the original home of "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson." Perhaps it could be the future home of the franchise, as well?
