ICYMI: 30 Rock Lunchtime Figure Skating Olympics. 
No matter what the venue, Johnny and 
partner-in-crime Tara Lipinski continue to reign 
supreme at figure skating commentary.

Watch their interview segment 
on Late Night’s website!

Kayso normally I don’t blog on weekends, but yesterday held so much amazing Johnnyness that it’s simply not possible to wait till Monday to share it all, so here you go.

First came this announcement from The Hollywood Reporter that Johnny has signed with CAA (Creative Artists Agency), which is news made of WOW. As the article notes:

The Sochi Olympics’ breakout star has landed a huge move.

Johnny Weir has signed with CAA, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively. In a Winter Games that lacked compelling personalities among the American competitors, the Olympian-turned-figure skating analyst stole the spotlight with his witty analysis and fearless looks.

Aligning with powerhouse CAA, which will represent him in all areas, puts Weir in an ideal position for even more opportunities in Hollywood and beyond.

Beyond thrilled for him, and so excited to where this fantastic partnership takes him! (Hopefully lots and lots of places that are accessible to and/or viewable by fans....!)

Next up: He and bestie Tara Lipinski reunited to host a viewing party in NYC of the Opening Ceremony of the Paralympic Games currently happening in Sochi, an event which yielded these random photos:

Via Johnny: “Today’s Look: Neck by @joomilim, 
Sweater @JOSEPH_FASHION, Leathers by RTA, 
Boots by @SandroParis. Thanks @BPCM! 

Via PopSugar: “@taraandjohnny do their best 
#GameofThrones pose for us. Which characters do 
@taralipinski and @johnnygweir remind you of?”
PopSugar also posted this interesting interview 
with Johnny from the party.

Via Sports Illustrated Kids: “Look who 
we ran into today: @Tara_Lipinski & @JohnnyGWeir! 
Our intvu w/ the #Sochi stars coming soon! #Sochi”

Via @LoisElfman: “If a picture of yourself is a selfie, 
what do we call a picture of someone else? 
@Tara_Lipinski and @JohnnyGWeir.”

Via @snbernard: “Can’t wait for @taraandjohnny 
to have their own show and I hope I get to be on it! 
#myfavoriteolympians #fiercefashion #thebettershow”

Via @SarahnBernard: “Got to talk to my favorite,
 fiercest Olympians today!! @TaraandJohnny

Via @rbarkan79: 
“#ew #obsessed #taraandjohnny”

Via @lawstnyc: “Just hanging out with 
a couple of Olympians, no big! ;) So awesome meeting

at the #TeamUSA Opening Ceremony party 
for the Paralympic Games! Big thanks to @brittfalco
 for coming with me and @usparalympics 
for the tickets to the event!!!”

Then it was off to get ready to tape Late Night, which led us to this moment:

Via @TaraAndJohnny: “Gotta wake up..
it’s time for Seth Meyers! 
@sethmeyers @latenightseth”

But apparently she did get him to wake up, because then:

Via Johnny: “Tonight’s look: Blazer @JOSEPH_FASHION, 
Lace @Joie_Clothing, Shirt @Dior, 
Neck @JoomiLim, Boots @SandroParis, 
Brooch @AlexisBittarNY, Leathers RTA”

Via @LateNightSeth: “Tonight’s guests 
@JohnnyGWeir and @Tara_Lipinski 
pose for the #LNSM Photo Booth!”

And finally: Showtime!

I love that the floor is sparkly 
where they’re standing.

“What’s life without having fun? 
And what’s all this worth,

And we have fun every time.”
