— -- Jimmy Fallon will host the Golden Globes for the first time on Sunday, and he's gathered some of Hollywood's big guns to give him a hand.

During the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards Preview Day on Wednesday, the late night host told People magazine that the show opener will feature "a lot of cameos."

“I’ve been writing jokes and planning on what the opening is going to be. We’ve been shooting. It’s the first time ever the Golden Globes is having a cold open -- like a filmed piece -- which I’m excited they let me do,” Fallon said.

Then, Fallon did a little bit of name dropping.

“There’s a lot of people who are going to be involved with the opening. I don’t want to name names or spoil anything,” he continued. “But Ryan Reynolds...someone’s going to be in there...Tina Fey, but it’s going to be good. Justin Timberlake -- and Kit Harington.”

The 42-year-old added that the night will be fun and "loose" -- not your typical awards show.

"It’s in this ballroom. They’re still building it. They haven’t finished the stage -- you’d think they’d start with that,” he said, joking. “I’m looking forward to it. I love this stuff.”

That "ballroom" he's talking about is the Beverly Hilton Hotel’s Grand Ballroom where the 74th Golden Globes Awards will take place on Sunday.
