Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel is ready to poke some fun at the stars this Sunday, but don’t expect him to be Ricky Gervais Jr.!
“I’m hoping to be a funny host,” he told “Extra’s” Jerry Penacoli. “I’m not looking to roast the room. There will be a little bit of that…Ricky Gervais instilled fear in the hearts of [the audience members].”
Another thing Jimmy’s not doing…calling Jennifer Aniston “Mom,” even after a viral video of the two playing mother and son. “Jen does not require me to call her mom and she’s also against breast feeding,” he said with a laugh.
See Jimmy host the Emmys at 7 PM EDT / 4 PM PDT, Sept. 23 on ABC.
