Kevin Spacey to headline Jimmy Kimmel’s post-Oscar special on ABC
Jimmy Kimmel’s star-studded post-Academy Awards specials often are more entertaining than the Oscars themselves.
This year, the ABC late-night host will be joined by two-time Academy Award winner and “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey, who’s headlining “Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars.” The show airs immediately after ABC7′s nightly newscast Sunday on WLS-Channel 7.
The 9th annual installment of Kimmel’s special also includes appearances by Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Martin Scorsese, Chris Hemsworth, Liam Hemsworth, Christoph Waltz, Ben Kingsley, Mandy Patinkin, Abbie Cornish, Barkhad Abdi, Joseph Gordon-
Levitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Seth Rogen, Morgan Freeman, Andy Garcia, Adam Driver, Queen
Latifah, Gary Oldman and Anjelica Huston, among others.
Expect more Kimmel comedy videos to be hitting YouTube that night, too. Last year, Kimmel premiered the trailer for “Movie: The Movie Twovie” – the sequel to the biggest, most star-studded and spectacular non-existent film the world had ever seen.
