I recently watched the 1979 movie Americathon with comedian/talk show host Jay Leno cast in the part of Larry Miller. Has he done any other acting?

Jay Leno's recent appearances in films usually are cameo appearances as himself, but he has done some acting. Besides Americathon, he was in Silver Bears in 1977, American Hot Wax in 1978, and Collision Course in 1989. He's also appeared in The Flintstones, Wag the Dog, Wayne's World 2, and Dave. When he's not acting or talking with celebrities on the popular The Tonight Show, Leno, 50, married to Mavis Nicholson, spends time with his classic cars and motorcycles.
