Leslie Odom Jr., who recently left his Tony-winning role in the Broadway blockbuster Hamilton, sits in with The Roots, the house band for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, on the August 1 broadcast of that NBC talk show.

The program also features Jared Leto, John Turturro and musical guest Bishop Briggs.

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda turned to members of the Grammy Award-winning band The Roots to produce the Grammy-winning original cast album of Hamilton. Roots band leader (and drummer) Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson and co-founder Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter were tapped by Miranda for the task.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights on NBC at 11:35 PM ET; check local listings.
