Usually, show business stories on late night talk shows are a lot of backslapping, "I'm great, you're great" love-fests. Not so with Louis C.K., who drew back the curtain a little bit on Tuesday's "Tonight Show" and revealed how he once squashed Jimmy Fallon's chances of getting hired on the the short-lived "Dana Carvey Show" back in the 1990s.

The star of FX's "Louie" revealed to Fallon that he was the head writer of the show, which starred the former "Saturday Night Live" performer, but also featured Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Robert Smigel. Fallon, then a young unknown, came in to audition with a set of Troll dolls and a guitar.
