Jimmy Fallon will kick off his stint as host of The Tonight Show with one of the world’s biggest movie stars and one of its most popular music acts.

The comedian – who teamed with Bruce Springsteen last week to mock Chris Christie’s bridge scandal – announced yesterday that Will Smith and U2 will be featured on his February 17 debut.

NBC will replace Jay Leno with Fallon at midnight following the Winter Olympics.

He will then slide into his regular time slot a week later, with Seth Meyers taking over Late Night.

At least we assume this will happen. It’s the plan. But you really never know when it comes to NBC, talk shows and Leno.

Are you excited for Fallon to host The Tonight Show?
