Stephen Colbert’s First Late Show Guest Will Be George Clooney

Stephen Colbert.

Over the years on The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert would bring up (to steal a phrase) "that hunk of left-wing man-meat" George Clooney, at times with great envy that he never received an invitation to Clooney's Italian villa parties. Now Colbert will share an equally special moment with Clooney. Colbert tweeted this morning that Clooney will be his first guest when the new Late Show premieres September 8.

Get ready with this wide-ranging five-by-five of Colbert on Clooney. Not on, but ... oh, you know what I mean.
