Brooke Shields, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Brooke Shields spent some time working at the bird sanctuary in the San Diego Zoo when she was graduating from high school. That experience qualified her to completely take over an animal segment on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

She immediately recognized turkey chicks when they were brought out. While Jimmy Fallon talked briefly to the actual animal expert, Jeff Musial, Shields started cooing to the bird she was holding.

As the camera panned in, you could see its eyes starting to close. "Brooke is putting hers to sleep," Fallon marveled. She was definitely in her element and happy to be holding the bird. Maybe Shields should have been cast in 'Zookeeper' instead of Kevin James. It could have been like a homecoming for her.
