Stephen Colbert will be paying a visit to CBS’ Late Show, his future home.
The network said Tuesday that Colbert will be a guest on Late Show with David Letterman on April 22.
Last week, the network announced that the host of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report will succeed Letterman on Late Show next year.
Letterman, who has hosted the late-night program for more than two decades, said this month that he will retire in 2015.
Brothers stand in
Production on Fast & Furious 7 is back underway, and Universal is getting some help from the younger brothers of Paul Walker, who died before completing filming.
A statement on the film’s Facebook page Tuesday said Caleb and Cody Walker will finish some action scenes and small gaps left in production.
Paul Walker had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of his action work, the statement said.
Cody Walker has worked as a stuntman. Caleb Walker has worked behind the scenes on a few films, according to Internet Movie Database.
MSNBC says The Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell was injured with his brother, Michael, in a taxi accident Saturday while vacationing out of the country. The network didn’t specify where the accident occurred.
The two were transported back to the United States – Lawrence to New York and Michael to Boston. They are both under the care of doctors and are expected to make a full recovery, the network said.
O’Donnell will be off the air for several weeks as he recuperates.
