Jimmy Fallon is doubling up on heartthrobs this week — but Stephen Colbert might get the last laugh in late night.
The Tonight Show host will welcome John Krasinski and Mark Wahlberg as guests on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. It’s unclear what Krasinski will plug on Fallon’s show. However, the host may ask Krasinski about the surprise appearance he made as Reed Richards in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
It’s a safer bet that Wahlberg will discuss the runaway success of Uncharted, arguably the year’s biggest hit thus far. After its release, the film more than tripled its $120 million budget and amassed $401.7 million at the box office. Having Tom Holland aboard certainly didn’t hurt driving up those numbers.
Meanwhile, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert gets the prize for inviting the most comedic talent to his show this week. Brett Gelman, who plays Murray “karate master” Bauman in Stranger Things, chats with Colbert on Tuesday. The following night, Colbert gabs with Stephen Merchant, who co-wrote and co-directed the original British edition of The Office.
On Thursday, Colbert and B.J. Novak will probably discuss Vengeance, a mystery-comedy film that Novak directed and wrote. Both actors played small roles in The Mindy Project, so that might be fodder for discussion too. Novak is never one to disappoint on his late-night guest appearances. Check out this somewhat-scientific test he executed on Cadbury eggs during a late-night appearance in April 2007. He pulled the stunt well before companies started shrinking their meal portions:
Additionally, Colbert will welcome St. Vincent as the singer/songwriter joins the Late Show band from Monday through Thursday.
Like Colbert, Seth Meyers is ushering a guest musician to play with his house band from Monday through Thursday — one who couldn’t be a further cry from St. Vincent. Lamb of God’s new drummer, Art Cruz, will show off his skills behind the kit on Late Night With Seth Meyers.
Lastly, James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel are in reruns all week.
