Who Will Be Bandleader for ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’?


This isn’t a joke!

Seth Meyers has revealed the bandleader for his new show, Late Night With Seth Meyers … fellow Saturday Night Live co-star Fred Armisen!

Seth, who is taking over the late-night reins from Jimmy Fallon (who, of course, is replacing Jay Leno), also added that Fred’s duties on his hit IFC show Portlandia will not factor into his new role.

In a follow-up tweet, he added that Fred, who is a skilled guitarist and drummer, “will curate and lead the band, and continue to run it even when he’s off shooting Portlandia.”

Late Night With Seth Meyers debuts February 24 on NBC.
