Leno Wants Famous Crash-Test Dummies

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Jay Leno is looking for a few good – and famous – crash-test dummies.

The funnyman debuts The Jay Leno Show September 14 on NBC, and is most anxious for a segment where celebrity guests race electric cars around a track in the studio.

A pro racing instructor will teach the stars how to avoid crashing into walls, though a few accidents are to be expected.

Leno thinks women will triumph over men on the track because they “take direction better.”

He says, “Race car driving is like sex, all men think they’re good at it.”

Leno says guests can practice test-driving the cars prior to their appearance, but still expects plenty of “cursing as they ride” on air.

He figures the bit will be a hit with viewers who’ll enjoy watching celebrities “crash and burn.”

Additionally, Leno’s show will entertain with “unusual” music acts, particularly pairings of artists that don’t typically perform together.
