The premiere-week lineup of guests for "Late Night with Seth Meyers" includes an eclectic mix of stars from film, television, music and politics.

Meyers, who left "Saturday Night Live" to take the seat vacated by new "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon, launches the new "Late Night" on Feb. 24. His first guest will be former "Weekend Update" pal Amy Poehler, and in a nod to the crush of her "Parks & Recreation" character, Leslie Knope, Meyers will also welcome Vice President Joe Biden.

Meyers' "SNL" ties also made news on Monday when it was announced that former cast member Fred Armisen would be leading the new "Late Night" band.

Here's the complete lineup of guests:

  • 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 and Patrick Stewart, Sophia Bush and comedian Michael Che.

"Late Night with Seth Meyers" will air at 12:35 a.m. on NBC.
