Movie star-turned-California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger "bailed out" pal Jay Leno last night (13JAN05) when Ozzy + Sharon Osbourne failed to show up for his late night show.

Schwarzenegger had already agreed to appear on Leno's THE TONIGHT SHOW - to sign a Harley Davidson motorbike the chat show host is planning to auction off for tsunami relief charities.

But his brief appearance turned into a proper chat when The Osbournes pulled out of the show.

He told the studio audience, "I got a phonecall an hour ago from Jay; he says, 'One of my guests isn't showing up, can you stay a little longer?'

"I said, 'Look, I always bail you out.'"
