Christie, whose Republican presidential campaign ended after a poor finish in New Hampshire, is scheduled to be a guest on Friday's show.

Christie was a guest in the summer and joked with Fallon that he would go "nuclear" if he went too long without getting a question in the next debate and before that he wore a polo shirt and khakis in a skit about "dad dancing."

Since leaving the presidential race Christie has backed front runner Donald Trump and has appeared on the trail several times with the businessman.

"Breaking Bad" actor Aaron Paul and comedian Nate Bargatze will also be guests.
