Turns out there's an old Italian custom to name your son after your employer. "Jay Leno's Garage" makes its debut tonight on CNBC. Leno says he has been able to land some big names like Coppola, Laurence Fishburne and Keanu Reeves because they know they will only talk cars — not show business stuff.
