In light of baby Billy Kimmel’s second heart surgery, Jimmy Kimmel is taking some time off to give those scrumptious cheeks the attention they deserve. Luckily, the late-night host has a few famous friends who are more than willing to step in and fill in for him.
ABC announced yesterday that Chris Pratt, Tracee Ellis Ross, Neil Patrick Harris and Melissa McCarthy will serve as guest hosts on Jimmy Kimmel Live! over the next few nights. Pratt stepped up to the plate for last night’s episode with Margot Robbie, Ross will anchor tonight’s show with guests Mary J. Blige and Amanda de Cadenet, Harris will chat with Vanessa Kirby and Jules Sylvester on Wednesday, and McCarthy will wrap it up on Thursday with Octavia Spencer and Dave Franco.
If Pratt comparing Robbie to Outback’s Bloomin’ Onion is any indication, then this is going to be a good week.
Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights on ABC at 11:35 p.m.
