In the whole Jimmy and Jay saga, it doesn't look like Leno came out the biggest loser.
That award would have to go to Fallon's former agent.
Page Six writes that Fallon’s former manager, Eric Kranzler of Beverly Hills-based Management 360, is still smarting after Fallon fired him right before he signed the deal to take over NBC’s “The Tonight Show.”
We’re told Kranzler “saw it coming,” but was still “in shock” about it. “They not only worked together but were close friends. [Eric] had really pushed his career,” said a source close to Kranzler, adding, “Eric felt Jimmy got really greedy.” Kranzler and Fallon had worked together on and off since 2003.
They split before talks with NBC began, and CAA negotiated the “Tonight” deal for Fallon.
Another source adds, “Jimmy won’t say anything negative about Eric. He is appreciative of everything Eric’s done for him.”
