‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ Sets First Guests, Plus Bill Hader’s Stefon to Appear

Late Night with Seth Meyers Stefon Bill Hader First Guests
NBC

A few days ago ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ delighted future audiences with news that Seth Meyers‘ former ‘SNL‘ co-star Fred Armisen had signed on to lead the house band, and now it seems the new ‘Late Night’ has another beloved ‘SNL’ staple headed its way. Not only can we expect Bill Hader‘s revered “Stefon” to make appearances, but the first week’s rounds of guests include everyone from Amy Poehler to Kanye West, Lena Dunham, Ian McKellen and more!

From Vulture, we’ve learned that Meyers recently revealed on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ that his final ‘SNL’ Weekend Update won’t prove the last we see of Bill Hader’s Stefon character. “Bill [Hader] and I spoke during my last SNL, and we do think he’ll turn up eventually.” Perhaps not ringing confirmation, though the character does fall under the NBC umbrella, and producer Lorne Michaels seems to have signed off on limited appearances.

And while we’ve learned head writer Colin Jost will replace Meyers on ‘SNL’s Weekend Update desk, Meyers’ first week of ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ will bring some serious star power to the show. Not only will Meyers feature former co-anchor Amy Poehler as his first guest alongside Vice President Joe Biden on February 24, the Tuesday installment will bring Kanye West and author Robyn Doolittle. Wednesday will see Kelly Ripa and Brad Paisley, with Thursday bringing ‘Girls‘ creator Lena Dunham, ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier”s Anthony Mackie and the John Mayer Trio, closing out Friday with Ian McKellen & Patrick Stewart, Sophia Bush, and Michael Che.

Not bad for Meyers first week on the job, right? We’ll keep you updated when to look out for Stefon’s graduation to ‘Late Night,’ and in the meantime, tell us if you’ll watch Seth Meyers’ big premiere week, beginning Monday, February 24!
