“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” had Will Forte as their guest on Monday night’s show. On the show, the “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) star confirmed that his popular sketch “MacGruber” was getting made into a movie. The star revealed that he had already finished writing it.

Will Forte was introduced on to the stage by Fallon while a “MacGruber” clip was being played. When the “MacGruber” theme song was played, Forte performed a gig too.

Without much introduction Fallon inquired whether any “MacGruber” movie was on the card or not. Forte’s reply was spontaneous too and he confirmed the news. He went further to say that the film is going to be made in Albuquerque. The cast has been finalized with him and Kirsten Wiig and the rest will be decided soon. When he was asked whether the flick will be an extension of explosive actions and bad hair days, he gave food for thought saying it might not be what is expected of it.

Before joining the team of “Saturday Night Live,” Forte had worked for the “Groundlings.” He has also been the writer/ producer of “Late Show with David Letterman,” “3rd Rock from the Sun,” “That 70’s Show” and “Action.” Forte provided the voice over for Abraham Lincoln on the animated series “Clone High,” which received much critical acclaim but it was a short lived series.

Forte also appeared in the Jackie Chan flick, “Around the World in 80 days” and also in “Beer Fest.” In March 2009, he had appeared as SNL alumni on Jimmy Fallon’s show. He makes regular guest appearance in “Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!”
