Kevin Spacey plays Johnny Carson in a fake 1985 “Tonight Show” clip featuring a “kid” version of Jimmy Kimmel trying out as a magician.

The “House of Cards” star referenced the clip while appearing with Kimmel after Sunday’s Oscars, but led everyone to believe it was actual footage of Carson and Kimmel.

Spacey directed viewers to his website to check out the lost meeting of once and future talk show hosts — and it promptly crashed.

Gossip Cop now has the clip — and we thinks Spacey might be an even better Johnny Carson than Carson was.
