JAMIE FOXX AND CHANNING TATUM TO HEADLINE
“JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE: AFTER THE OSCARS®”
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 24 ON ABC
The 8th annual “Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars” special airs live on ABC SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 24 with guests including Academy Award® Winner Jamie Foxx, Channing Tatum and “Good Morning America” host Robin Roberts.
Last year “Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards” premiered a trailer for “Movie: The Movie” — the biggest, most star-studded and spectacular non-existent film the world has ever seen. “Movie: The Movie” has garnered nearly 20 million views on YouTube alone to help make last year’s post-Oscars special the most successful in “JKL” history.
This year Kimmel will debut the highly anticipated sequel, entitled “Movie: The Movie Twovie,” starring Bradley Cooper, Jessica Chastain, Jude Law, Salma Hayek, John Krasinski, Samuel L. Jackson and many more. This promises to be the biggest, most star-studded imaginary film of all time.
Kimmel’s previous post-Oscar specials have featured Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise, Ben Affleck, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Jon Stewart, Billy Crystal and Ellen DeGeneres.
“Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars” airs live on Oscar Sunday, February 24 from 12:05-1:05 a.m., ET after the late local news, and at 10:00 p.m., PT on ABC.
