The late-night legend says he will return to Israel in June to host the award ceremony for the second annual "Genesis Prize." Leno also hosted the inaugural ceremony last year for what is billed as "the Jewish Nobel Prize." The $1 million prize is being awarded to Oscar-winning actor Michael Douglas in recognition of his "passion" for his Jewish heritage and Israel.

Leno said he was thrilled to be invited back, comparing the warm welcome he received last year to a raucous Italian wedding.
