Jimmy Fallon graduates from college

The Superficial / May 10, 2009

I guess his Monster.com resume was looking a little thin because Jimmy Fallon decided to complete his degree in communications from College of Saint Rose in Albany, N.Y. Turns out “Modern-Day Carson Daly” isn’t a marketable skill after all. Who knew? People reports:

“There’s always going to be someone out there like that movie critic, who doesn’t believe in you or who thinks your head is too big or you’re not smart enough,” Fallon told the graduates. “But those are the people you need to ignore, and those are the times you need to just keep doing what you love doing.”
The Saturday Night Live alum attended St. Rose from 1992 through 1995 but decided to drop out just one semester short of graduating to pursue a comedy career in Los Angeles.
In order to graduate, Fallon presented college officials a portfolio of his work on TV and film that illustrated he had learned and fulfilled the college’s core curriculum through his real-life experience, which satisfied remaining credits.

A portfolio of Jimmy Fallon’s work sealed the deal? Really? Why do I get the feeling there are parts missing from this story? Namely bleeding from the eyes, a huge check being cut and someone saying “Well, at least he’s not Dane Cook.”
