Jimmy Fallon plans to make his Twitch streaming debut Tuesday by playing Among Us with a host of celebrity guests.

The planned guests include The Roots members Questlove, Tariq Trotter, and Kirk Douglas, Stranger Things stars Noah Schnapp and Gaten Matarazzo, streamers Corpse Husband, Sykkuno, and Valkyrae, and Among Us community director Victoria Tran.

The group will play the newly released Airship map when the stream kicks off on The Tonight Show's official Twitch channel at 5:45 p.m. ET.

Fallon's move onto Twitch signals a larger trend of mainstream media embracing Twitch and other new media as it gains traction. Politicians, particularly on the left, have streamed on the platform, and a few have even played games as part of political initiatives. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez played Among Us with several Twitch luminaries as part of a get out the vote drive. She joined a second stream with Canadian parliamentarian Jagmeet Singh a month later.

Fallon appears to be the first late night host to make a real push for Twitch content. His only competition in the category is Conan O'Brien, whose Team Coco account rarely, if ever, features the "Conan" star himself.
