We’re in the final stretch of April, bringing a busy and eventful month to a close. Late night TV is back this week to keep fans entertained and informed.

And with summer right around the corner, there are plenty of blockbuster movies and brand new television series coming soon. Late night shows remain the best place to promote these projects and the stars will be out this week to do just that.

So with that in mind, here are Last Night On’s picks for the five late night TV guests that fans won’t want to miss this week. Be sure to let us know who you’ll be tuning in to watch.

Late night TV guests to watch: Wyatt Russell

Marvel fans will want to start their week with Late Night with Seth Meyers. The NBC show will welcome The Falcon and the Winter Solider star Wyatt Russell on Monday, April 19.

The son of Hollywood legends Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, Wyatt Russell appeared in several films and TV series before breakout roles in Overlord and Lodge 49. Things have gone to the next level thanks to his portrayal as John Walker, the new Captain America, in Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

Expect Russell to comment on what it was like to put on the Captain America costume and throw around the iconic shield. Hopefully, the actor will also shed some light on fan reaction to his character.

Late night TV guests to watch: Tig Notaro

One of comedy’s most popular performers comes to late night TV this week. Catch Tig Notaro on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday, April 19.

We should get to hear about Notaro’s turn to an action star thanks to her role in director Zack Snyder’s upcoming zombie/heist movie Army of the Dead. Notaro was added to the film as a late replacement for Chris D’Elia and shot her scenes after filming had wrapped. It definitely had to have made for an interesting experience. Army of the Dead hits Netflix on May 21.

Prior to that, fans can see Notaro in the comedy Together Together alongside Ed Helms and Patti Harrison. It will release in theaters on April 23 so expect Notaro to plug that project as well.

Late night TV guests to watch: George W. Bush

It’s not every day that a former president stops by late night TV so when it does happen, it’s a big deal. See former President George W. Bush on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, April 21.

President Bush sat down for an interview with Jimmy Kimmel four years ago and now he’s back. There was some criticism at the time about Bush rehabbing his public image post-presidency but every past president looked better compared to Donald Trump.

The 43rd president is out promoting his new book Out of Many, One, a collection of stories and oil paintings compiled by President Bush featuring immigrants. Expect Kimmel to ask Bush about the current immigration policy, the performance of President Joe Bidenand what the previous administration taught us about American politics.

Don’t miss one of the world’s best athletes come to late night TV. Gymnast Simone Biles will be on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, April 22.

At 24 years old, Biles has one of the most impressive resumes in gymnastics history. She has 30 combined medals between the Olympics and World Championships, making her the third most decorated gymnast in history.

She will look to add to that total in Tokyo in the upcoming summer Olympics. Biles has stated that she feels she has an even greater reason to compete this year in the wake of the U.S Gymnastics sexual assault scandal. Her interview with Jimmy Fallon should give fans an idea of where she is in terms of preparation and how she plans to continue being an inspirational figure.

Close out your late night TV week with Gal Gadot. The actress will be back on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday, April 22.

Gadot remains one of the busiest performers in all of Hollywood. Wonder Woman 1984 was released on Dec. 25 and Gadot was back as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Next up, she’ll star alongside Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds in Red Notice coming later this year. Then, she stars in Death on the Nile arriving in 2022. And on top of all that, Gadot is expecting her third child.

But next, Gadot hosts National Geographic Presents: Impact with Gal Gadot, a six-part documentary profiling inspiring women from around the world. The short-form documentary premieres on April 19. Gadot should offer insight on how the project came together and what she hopes audiences get from watching it.
