Stephen Colbert will be on 'Late Show' with David Letterman next week
CBS announced today that forthcoming Late Night host Stephen Colbert will sit down with current Late Night host David Letterman this week as a guest on the show. Gee, what ever will they talk about?
It'll be interesting to see whether Colbert shows up as his character "Stephen Colbert" or as himself, the guy who will be taking over Dave's show next year. It was announced last week that Colbert is replacing Letterman when Dave retires in 2015 after three decades as a late-night host. For what it's worth, we're obsessed with these glimpses at the "real" Colbert, which are being unearthed all over the Internet after last week's announcement.
And if you haven't seen it, check out Colbert's spot about Letterman's retirement on his Comedy Central show The Colbert Report: "I gotta tell you, I do not envy whoever they try to put in that chair. Folks, those are some huge shoes to fill and some really big pants."
