LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jimmy Kimmel has promised to pull a massive prank during his inaugural hosting run at Sunday’s 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, and while the late night star can’t give too much away, he says it won’t disappoint.
“I can’t really say what it’s gonna be, but it will be a big deal,” Jimmy told Access Hollywood of his forthcoming prank, during an interview at Emmy preps in Los Angeles on Wednesday. “That’s all I’ll say.”
Adding, “There will be a lot of people involved in it.”
Jimmy said he truly appreciates the opportunity to host the famed TV awards, as he didn’t have access to a television set as a child.
“It’s funny – I grew up and I didn’t have a television set, and now, I said [to my kids], ‘Are you going to watch me on the Emmys?’ – they’re in college – and they said, ‘We don’t have a TV set,’” he said. “They watch everything on their computer now. We’ve really come full circle!”
Catch the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, Sunday at 8 ET/5 PT on ABC.
