Jimmy Kimmel Channels Jon Snow & Marcia Clark for 'THR'

Jimmy Kimmel channels fan-favorite characters Jon Snow, Marcia Clarke, and more for THR‘s new issue.

Here’s what the 48-year-old talk show host and Emmy host had to share:

On if he thought he’d be doing Jimmy Kimmel Live for this long: “No, no, never. Never, never, never would I have imagined I’d be doing it this long.”

On how he keeps going: It’s like being an athlete in that when you’re young you have a ton of energy and a lot of enthusiasm and you kind of float on that, on that athletic ability or whatever it is. And then as you get older you figure out how to do things, you become more conservative in the way you approach things. I know I can write a six- or seven-page monologue in two hours. I know I can. I know I could probably do it in an hour if I really, really had to. And so you have a confidence and also a routine. And then on top of it you have people around you who know what they’re doing. Whenever there is a new late-night host I always will call and say — if I get in touch with them, I’ll say you have to have at least a few people who’ve done this before because if everybody is learning it’s going to be an uphill battle.

On having both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on his show:
“First of all, our objective every night is comment on what’s going on in the news. So at a time like this, and of course these political seasons are getting longer and longer and longer, what’s going on in the news and what people are talking about. Really people at dinner are talking about two things: They’re talking about Donald Trump and they are talking about what they are watching on Netflix. Those seem to be the only conversations that are being had.”

    “No, no, never. Never, never, never would I have imagined I’d be doing it this long.”

    Really? And just how long is that? Kind of a useless quote to provide when you don’t tell us how long he has been hosting.

    Are you guys even trying?
