This is definitely one of my favorite videos. Can't believe I missed it. James is adorable here, cracking a big smile and laughing, feeling comfortable enough to admit that he's uncomfortable. He seems to genuinely like talking to Fallon. I've noticed in many interviews that he looks and sounds nervous, having a lot of pauses trying to find the right words. Though he is an unquestionable genius playing a character, especially Raymond Reddington, he certainly doesn't clamor for the spotlight. The spotlight just happens to love him. Now that The Blacklist is a huge hit and has been picked up for a full 22-episode second season only half way through the first, I hope he can get used to all the attention. He's been in the business for a long time, but with everyone constantly connected now, there's more noise than ever. I wouldn't want to think he'd feel awful every time he had to go on a talk show or to Comic-Con.
