Watch Jimmy Fallon's Perfect Spoof of Empire

We'd totally watch Jimpire

Liz Raftery

You know Jimmy Fallon, Saturday Night Live alum and host of The Tonight Show. But do you know about the late-night star's early struggles and how he rose to power? It's a story that's, apparently, remarkably similar to Lucious Lyon's (Terrence Howard) on Fox's Empire.

In a new digital short, Jimmy reveals the secrets behind maintaining his "Jimpire." And the only thing better than his Terrence Howard impersonation is Steve Higgins' Cookie-esque flowing fur and leopard print undies.

The only people who aren't laughing at the parody? Empire stars Howard and Taraji P. Henson themselves, who make memorable cameos to voice their displeasures about being parodied.

Plus, stick around for a surprise appearance to find out who the true heir of the Jimpire is.
