Conversational Colbert Continued

I mentioned last week that my hopes for Stephen Colbert's upcoming "Late Show" debut were buoyed by the announcement of his non-showbiz guests in his first week, including Jeb Bush, Elon Musk, Stephen King, and Uber CEO Travis Kalanick.

Now we can add to that his second week guests, which -- in addition to actors Emily Blunt, Kevin Spacey, Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts, and Lupita Nyong-o -- will include Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, Bernie Sanders, and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon. I can't imagine Jimmy, Jimmy, James, or Seth even trying to engage those people in intelligent conversation.

Fallon would probably have Breyer playing beer pong in black robes.
