Yes, everyone including Chris Rock, Mariah Carey and Rosie O'Donnell are guest-starring on the second season of Empire, but can Jimmy Fallon join that list?

Since that isn't happening anytime soon, the Tonight Show debuted their own take on the Fox series on Tuesday night.

Fallon dons the mustache, scarves and his best Terrence Howard voice as "Juicy Jim," head of the Tonight Show "Jimpire," whose health is in critical condition due to his ring avulsion and so must leave his late-night legacy to a successor.

Spanning just over ten minutes, the spoof co-stars Steve Higgins as Cookie, and includes a brotherly collaboration resembling the show's hit "Drip Drop" between Questlove (as Jamal, with his own secret) and Black Thought (as Hakeem) that includes Donald Trump and Chris Christie punchlines.

The real Howard appears in the sketch to ask Fallon to spare his show in his parodies, pleading "Don't do one of Empire," and Taraji P. Henson also gives Higgins a beating, saying, "I should call you little Debbie, because you're one fake-ass Cookie." Stay tuned until the end for Trump, too.
