The list of guests booked for “Jimmy Kimmel Live’s” weeklong Austin visit includes some of the usual suspects – and a few surprises, too.
The ABC late-night show will originate from the Long Center for the Performing Arts Monday through Friday next week.
Tickets for the nightly tapings have already been distributed.
Guests announced Wednesday include Julia Louis Dreyfus, Kevin Hart, Matthew McConaughey, Brad Paisley and Tony Romo.
In a phone interview, Kimmel promised that bookers for the show are still hard at work and that “three probable surprises” – additional big-name guests – could be unveiled soon.
Several musicians are also set to sit in with Kimmel’s house band, Cleto and the Cletones, including Austin’s own Gary Clark Jr.
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” airs weeknights at 10:35 p.m. on KVUE, Austin’s ABC affiliate.
