Maisie Williams Confirmed For February 20 “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Episode

The actress will support “Early Man” on ABC’s late-night talk show.

Update: ABC confirms “Early Man” cast member Maisie Williams for the February 20 edition of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

Williams will be the episode’s second interview guest.

Allison Janney is set as the lead interview guest, while Kent Jones will close the show with a performance.

“Early Man” opens in the United States on February 16.

Four days later, Williams will appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

The 1iota ticketing website says Williams will be an interview guest at the February 20 “Kimmel” taping. Allison Janney is also booked for an interview on the episode.

While 1iota listings are credible, the lineup should nonetheless be treated as tentative until formally confirmed by ABC. The network will likely issue said confirmation — and reveal any planned musical or comedy guests — by Saturday.

Other upcoming “Kimmel” guests include Jason Bateman (February 21), David Chang (February 21), Oprah Winfrey (February 22), Timothee Chalamet (February 22), Saoirse Ronan (February 23) and Kyle Chandler (February 23).
