Tesla’s Elon Musk will be one of Colbert’s first guests on the ‘Late Show’

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is set to launch on Sept. 8. On Sept. 9, the SpaceX and Tesla (TSLA) CEO—and self-proclaimed samurai—Elon Musk will appear as a guest.

Musk is in pretty good company, according to a tweet sent out by New York Times report Dave Itzkoff. He attached a picture of the first week’s schedule, showing each guest appearance. On the Sept. 9 episode, Musk will be preceded by Scarlett Johansson, and followed by Kendrick Lamar.

Colbert’s first two guests on the show during the Sept. 8 debut will be world-renowned actor George Clooney and presidential candidate Jeb Bush. That same week he will also talk to Amy Schumer and Stephen King.

On the Sept. 10 show, following Musk’s appearance, Colbert’s only guest will be Uber CEO Travis Kalanick.
