Also visiting the LATE SHOW the week of Feb. 3 will be actor Will Arnett, star of the hit CBS comedy series THE MILLERS, who lends his voice to the upcoming “The Lego Movie” (Feb. 3); actor George Clooney, who stars in the new film “The Monuments Men,” which he also co-wrote and co-produced (Feb. 4); actor Matt Damon, who stars with Clooney in “The Monuments Men” (Feb. 5); actor Michael Keaton, who stars in the upcoming remake of the classic “RoboCop” (Feb. 6); and actress Amy Adams, who recently received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress for “American Hustle” (Feb. 7).
