'Late Night with Seth Meyers' First Week Guests Have a History of Causing Trouble
He might be new at this, but you've got to give the guy credit for his impressive celebrity rolodex. 'Late Night with Seth Meyer' boasts Kanye West, Lena Dunham and more A-list guests for its premiere week starting Feb. 24. But these are only a few of the long lineup of stars set to appear. Meyer's SNL Weekend Update pal Amy Poehler will appear on the comedian's first show. Another SNL alum, Portlandia's Fred Armisen will serve as the band's leader for the night. Considering the trio have all worked together in the past, we can't wait to see what mischief their reunion will cause.
Other guests for the week include talk show host Kelly Ripa, Lord of the Rings star Ian McKellan (accompanied by BFF Patrick Stewart), singer Brad Paisley and others. Seth Meyer's talk show will follow the week after the premiere of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which also snagged a handful of top stars, including First Lady Michelle Obama and pop star Justin Timberlake.
