Harvard's Hasty Pudding Theatricals has named comedian and "Tonight Show" show host Jay Leno as their 2011 Man of the Year. He joins Julianne Moore, who is the troupe's 2011 Woman of the Year. The Man of the Year festivities take place on Feb. 4. Hasty Pudding Theatricals producers Nikolus Ray and Matthew Whitaker will roast Leno and present him with his very own Pudding Pot. Leno is an Andover native and Emerson alum. Previous winners of the dubious award include Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Samuel L. Jackson, Martin Scorsese, James Franco, and Justin Timberlake, among many others.
