More talent is coming on board for NBC’s Red Nose Day fundraiser.
Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and actresses Jennifer Garner, Elisabeth Moss and Michelle Rodriguez will take part in the three-hour charity event (Thursday, 8 p.m, ET/PT), according to an announcement made Monday.
Red Nose Day, which has been a longtime popular event in the United Kingdom, is making its debut in the United States. The charity event has raised more than $1 billion over 30 years.
The NBC show will feature comedy and musical performances and videos produced by Funny or Die, along with short appeals films featuring stars traveling around the U.S. and the world to highlight children in need. Rodriguez, who went to Peru to meet children who have to work to survive, looked at education projects there that are helping them.
More than 70 celebrities are participating, including Julia Roberts, Will Ferrell, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Julianne Moore, Jodie Foster, Neil Patrick Harris, Christina Aguilera, Pharrell, Adam Levine, Paul Rudd, Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, Anna Kendrick and Simon Cowell.
