Tessa Thompson will appear as the lead interview guest on the November 1 episode. The broadcast will also feature a chat with Mark Rober and MrBeast, and a performance by Lainey Wilson.

The November 2 “Kimmel” broadcast will feature the iconic Tom Hanks as its lead interview guest. Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford will also drop by for a chat.
