FILE - In this Feb. 23, 2013 file photo, actor Fred Armisen arrives at the Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, Calif. Seth Meyers says former comedy colleague Fred Armisen will lead the band when he takes over NBC’s “Late Night.” Meyers tweeted Monday, Feb. 10, 2014, that his former “Saturday Night Live” castmate will “curate and lead” the band, running it even while away shooting “Portlandia,” Armisen’s IFC comedy series. NBC confirmed the news. Armisen is best known as a comic performer from “Portlandia” and his decade at “SNL.” But he began show business as a drummer, principally for the punk-rock band Trenchmouth in the 1990s. He will handle vocals and guitar for “Late Night’s” 8G Band. (Photo by Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP, File)
