"An amazing addition to the week is legendary musician, author and actor Keith Richards who will sit down on Wednesday with Jimmy for an interview to discuss his New York Times-best-selling autobiography, 'Life,' and his upcoming appearance in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,'" NBC said in a news release Monday. "In a rare TV appearance, Ms. Lauryn Hill will take the 'Late Night' stage on Thursday to perform two of Marley's classic songs."
