“A shakeup is going on behind the scenes of NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,'” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports. “The late-night talk show’s longtime head writer A.D. Miles is leaving his post after eight years of working with Fallon. Sources say he’ll transition over the next few weeks.”
Miles, 45, reportedly wants to return to narrative writing and acting. “Prior to his work in late-night, Miles played various comedic roles, most notably portraying Gary in ‘Wet Hot American Summer,'” THR notes.
Miles will be moving back to Los Angeles, and reportedly has an animated feature in the works with Fallon.
In a statement released Wednesday, Miles said: “Riding Jimmy Fallon’s coattails for the past eight years has given me all the confidence I need to strike out on my own and work on a movie with Jimmy Fallon.”
