'Cowboys & Aliens' Invade 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'
Cowboys & Aliens are invading Jimmy Kimmel Live.
The film's director Jon Favreau steps behind the camera to direct Wednesday's episode of the late night talk show. ABC is touting the guest helming stint as "a unique event that features his signature style."
The episode includes interviews with Cowboys & Aliens co-stars Olivia Wilde and Adam Beach. Favreau appears as a guest on the show Monday.
The week-long Cowboys & Aliens push continues Tuesday on the show with guest Daniel Craig, and on Thursday with a sit-down with actor Harrison Ford.
Previous guest directors of Jimmy Kimmel Live include Quentin Tarantino, J.J. Abrams and Michel Gondry.
Universal Pictures and DreamWorks' Cowboys & Aliens opens in theaters this Friday.
