Amy Poehler, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart And Joe Biden Among Late Night With Seth Meyers' First Guests

Amy Poehler, Joe Biden, Kanye West, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart and Lena Dunahm! These are some of the people who will be among the first guests to grace Late Night with Seth Meyers, which is set to debut later this month. And among the musical performers, there's Brad Paisley and John Mayer Trio.

Here's the full list of guests and performers scheduled to appear on Late Night With Seth Meyers:

Monday, Feb. 24: Guests Amy Poehler, Vice President Joe Biden and musical guest A Great Big World.Tuesday, Feb. 25: Guests Kanye West and author Robyn Doolittle ("Crazy Town: The Rob Ford Story").Wednesday, Feb. 26: Guests Kelly Ripa, Brad Paisley and musical guest Brad Paisley.Thursday, Feb. 27: Guests Lena Dunham, Anthony Mackie and musical guest John Mayer Trio.Friday, Feb. 28: Guests Ian McKellen & Patrick Stewart, Sophia Bush and comedian Michael Che.

Or if you prefer the names rattled off on cards, here's the day-by-day listing via a Vine video the late night talk show Tweeted today...

That's a pretty great line-up for Meyers' first week. The former Saturday Night Live writer and "Weekend Update" anchor will reunite with Poehler, who once shared the news desk with Meyers before departing the series to star on Parks and Recreation. Recently winning a Golden Globe award at an event she was hosting is a mark of just how well Poehler's been doing for herself lately. Between her history with Meyers and her own professional success, she seems like the perfect guest to help kick off Meyers' late night series. The Vice President will also be there, along with musical guest A Great Big World.

Filling out the middle part of the week, there's Kelly Ripa, country music artist Brad Paisley, Girls' Lena Dunham, Captain America: Winter Soldier's Anthony Mackie (Falcon!) and John Mayer Trio, Mayer's blues rock band with Pino Palladino and Steve Jordan.

Later in the week, it looks like Magneto and Xavier are teaming up, as Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are both scheduled to appear on Friday's episode. It's a bit early to be promoting X-Men: Days of Future Past, which doesn't arrive in theaters until late May, but I doubt anyone will complain about that if it means seeing these two great actors side-by-side.

Late Night with Seth Meyers airs weeknights at 12:35am ET/PT beginning Feb. 24. NBC also announced The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon's line-up. Fallon's late night show starts next week (February 17). Check out that schedule here.
