Jay Leno: Working Amidst Contoversy

Doing the best to put aside the controversy, Jay Leno was busy filming his NBC show in Los Angeles on Friday (January 29).

The late night host was spotted driving two of his classic Fiats while film crews shot up material.

Quite the aficionado, Leno is known to have a collection of vintage cars – with the two being put to use looking to be variations of his 1937 Topolino Coupe, one in a two-tone maroon and black color and the other in a crisp all-black look.

Of the criticized move bumping Conan O’Brien from his Tonight Show duties, Leno previously told press: “This is almost the perfect storm. You have two hit shows—‘Tonight Show’ No. 1, Conan No. 1.—you move them both to another situation, and what are the odds that both would do extremely poorly?”

“People think you’re behind-the-scenes, pulling strings,” Leno added. “There’s no strings to pull.”
