Stephen Colbert’s first guest on “The Late Show” will be George Clooney, the late-night host tweeted on Friday morning.
“George Clooney will be my first-ever #LSSC guest on September 8th! Could one of you let him know?” he wrote on Twitter.
Colbert is stepping in as CBS’ late-night flagship host following David Letterman’s retirement on May 20.
The former host of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” got his start as a long-time correspondent for the network’s other hit program, “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”
Thursday night marked Stewart’s last show before bequeathing his anchor chair to Trevor Noah. Colbert made an appearance to help bid Stewart farewell.
“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” premieres Sept. 8 on CBS.
