The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon is hosting a pair of actors tonight as its guests, along with a Broadway production as its musical guest. Jennifer Lawrence, the popular actress with the quirky personality who rose to fame in The Hunger Games and its sequel, will stop by to promote her role in the new film X-Men Days of Future Past. No word on whether she’ll show up in blue Mystique body paint. Craig Robinson, the comedian most widely known for his role as warehouse manager Darryl Philbin on The Office, will also appear. But the musical guest may be the most unpredictable moment of the evening for Fallon and company.
Rather than the usual live performance of a song from a pop singer or rock band, tonight’s musical number on the Tonight Show will be a performance from the Broadway musical “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.” Since making the decision to put on his iteration of the Tonight Show in New York City, Jimmy Fallon has made ongoing efforts to tie the show into the city’s culture, and Broadway fits the bill.
Tonight’s Thursday May 15th episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon airs at 11:35pm eastern time, 10:35pm central time, on NBC.
