NEW YORK, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Will Smith and U2 have been booked as guests on the Feb. 17 premiere of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" in New York, NBC announced.

Smith will next star in the movie "Focus."

U2, which hasn't had an album since 2009's "No Line on the Horizon," is to release a new album this year.

The 22-time Grammy Award-winning band was nominated last week for an Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Ordinary Love" from the film, "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom."

Fallon is taking over the "Tonight" host's chair from Jay Leno, who started on the show in 1992.
