CNN’s Jake Tapper Joins Seth Meyers, NJ Gov. Chris Christie Sits Down with Jimmy Fallon

Looking for a laugh? Look no further than tonight’s comedy lineup where CNN host of “The Lead” Jake Tapper will sit down with Seth Meyers for his “Late Night” program. No clue yet as to what the topic of conversation will be but expect some jabs at the news anchor’s media career and March coverage of the missing plane.

Also running the circuit – Chris Christie will join Jimmy Fallon as a guest on “Tonight.” The New Jersey Governor has been a joke line for Fallon, most recently surrounding criticism of Bridgegate. On past programs, Fallon quipped ”Christie was furious when they blocked the bridge because he thought they said they were blocking the fridge” and “Christie apologized and promised the bridge will stay open for cars, trucks, and the buses he’s throwing his staff under.”

Will on the Hill – Monday night was the annual “Will on the Hill” event for the Shakespeare Theatre Company. It’s an annual event that gathers politicians, journalists and other D.C. insiders to put on a performance that pairs elements of Williams Shakespeare with modern-day references.

According to their website, “proceeds from the event support STC’s many education, artistic and community outreach programs including in-school workshops and online learning resources that inspire new and diverse audiences and deepen the connection to classical theatre in learners of all ages.” One of the members of the cast was The Hill’s Managing Editor, Bob Cusack. Cusack tweeted this startling photo of himself moments before taking the stage. Turns out, acting is in Cusack’s blood. He tells FBDC, “It was my first time performing in Will on the Hill and brought back memories of when my parents had an off, off, off Broadway theater company in New York City. Last night I did Shakespeare, but back then it was Jack in Jack and the Beanstalk and Agatha Christie plays.” Aside from Jack, Cusack was an extra “Clear and Present Danger” and “Game Change.”
