Jay Leno’s return to “The Tonight Show” in March has attracted some big names, including “Twilight” human Kristen Stewart.
The late-night show will also feature several medal-wearing Olympians, “American Idol” soon-to-be ex-judge Simon Cowell and the former Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin.
Here’s Jay’s guest list for those first two weeks:
Monday, March 1 – Skier Lindsey Vonn will get to show off her medals (two to date), and Jamie Foxx and musical guest Brad Paisley will stop by.
Tuesday, March 2 – Sarah Palin will appear to face her nemesis Dave, and snowboarder Shaun White will try to convince everyone to call him “The Animal” instead of the “Flying Tomato.”
Wednesday, March 3 – Speed Skater Apolo Ohno, the most decorated Winter Olympian for the U.S., will skate through along with Chelsea Handler, Avril Lavigne and the cast of “Jersey Shore” doing the “Jaywalk All-Stars.”
Thursday, March 4 – Matthew McConaughey, probably with his shirt on, will guest, along with “Up in the Air” director/writer Jason Reitman.
Friday, March 5 – “Today” host Meredith Vieira and “Invictus” star Morgan Freeman.
Monday, March 8 – “American Idol” judge Simon Cowell is the only guest listed. Do we need anyone else?
Tuesday, March 9 – Very curious hodgepodge of the excellent Christoph Waltz from “Inglourious Basterds,” Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and animal expert Dave Salmoni. We know Dave is the big draw, so we saved best of last.
Wednesday, March 10 – Can’t get enough of Joan Jett? “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart, who just got the BAFTA Rising Star award and plays a young Joan Jett in the upcoming film “The Runaways,” stops by. So does “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” host chef Guy Fieri.
Thursday, March 11 – Dana Carvey, Kim Kardashian and musical guest Colbie Caillat.
Friday, March 12 – Sweet 16 Dakota Fanning is a guest to promote her role in “The Runaways” and so is filmmaker-writer Judd Apatow. He’s not promoting “The Runways,” but he’s a guest.
Which guest would you actually tune in to see?
