Fred Armisen to Lead Seth Meyers' <i>Late Night</i> Band

As Jimmy Fallon said goodbye to Late Night with help from the Muppets last Friday, we all knew Seth Meyers was waiting in the wings—but who would be replacing The Roots? Today the host-to-be tweeted a photo of his future Late Night house band featuring a very familiar face: Fred Armisen.

A few hours later Meyers confirmed that his former SNL castmate and current Portlandia star was not simply hanging around when the photo was taken, but will in fact lead the “8G Band.”

Late Night with Seth Meyers premieres Monday, Feb. 24 at 12:35 a.m. EST.
