Colbert Late Show Guests

Colbert's Late Show: Stephen King, ScarJo, Uber CEO Among First Guests

The guest line-up for the opening week of CBS’ The Late Show With Stephen Colbert ranges from the expected high-wattage movie stars to a wannabe POTUS and a couple of CEOs.

As previously announced, the George Clooney will be on hand for Colbert’s opening night (on Tuesday, Sept. 8), as will Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush. Meanwhile, the first musical guest is Late Show bandleader Jon Batiste with Stay Human and “special guests.” (Hey, imagine if Taylor Swift was someone else’s special guest? Plot twist!)

The rest of Colbert’s opening week line-up is as follows:

Wednesday, Sept. 9
Scarlett Johansson; SpaceX and Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk; musical guest Kendrick Lamar

Thursday, Sept. 10
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick; musical guest Toby Keith

Friday, Sept. 11

    A hell of a first week!

    Elon Musk, that will be great. Stephen’s a great fan and drives a Tesla. I wish I could drive a Tesla (wish I could afford).

    Stephen King for sure.

  7. Angela says:

    Echoing the others-Stephen King should be a fun interview :). And I’ll be curious to see how his interview with Bush goes, too.
    Pretty strong list of guests to kick things off! Can’t wait :).

    It’s a comedy show, so I’m looking most forward to Amy Schumer – the only comedian he has in week 1.

    Stephen King hands down. So excited to see what Colbert asks him.
