Michael J. Fox has been a frequent visitor on CBS’s “The Late Show With David Letterman” but Wednesday’s appearance was his final one.
“Over 41 times, I can’t believe this will be the last time. I want to thank you for everything you’ve done for me and for television,” the “Back to the Future” star told David Letterman.
“You are better at doing what you do than I am at doing what I do,” said the veteran host, to which the the 5’4” actor quipped, “You’re taller. You’ve got that going for you.”
To commemorate Fox’s history with the late-night staple, Letterman flashed a 1985 photo of the actor wearing huge wire glasses and a goofy smile.
“Those glasses were incredible. I got them from Charles Nelson Reilly,” the former teen heartthrob joked. “If you get wider, you’ll see the sleeves of the blazer were rolled up.”
“You’ve got it all going on there,” marveled Letterman.
Other guests scheduled include: Alec Baldwin, Robert Downey Jr., Will Ferrell, Fox, Jack Hanna, Kevin James, Scarlett Johansson, Michael Keaton, Steve Martin, Sarah Jessica Parker, Don Rickles, Julia Roberts, Ray Romano, Paul Rudd, Jerry Seinfeld, Martin Short, John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Elvis Costello, Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Mumford and Sons and Tom Waits.
At 68, Letterman holds the record for longest-running late-night host in history. Stephen Colbert will take over for him when he retires in May.
Letterman’s final broadcast is set to air Wednesday, May 20 at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.
