David Letterman has announced the final guests for his show before his May 20th finale. These guests will be spread over the last 28 shows, and more will be added. So far, no mention of Regis Philbin, although I could see him being on the very last installment. Also, if it’s possible, it would be great to see Teri Garr come back. But her health issues may not permit it. The other Letterman guest that I’m sure he would like is Mary Tyler Moore, who gave him his start with her short lived variety show. Again, health issues are involved.
I do think music wise, there will be surprises still to be announced. Bruce Springsteen? Sting? Paul McCartney?
Here’s the list they put out today: George Clooney, Robert Downey, Jr., Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Tom Hanks, Jack Hanna, Scarlett Johansson, Michael Keaton, Steve Martin, Bill Murray, Sarah Jessica Parker, Don Rickles, Julia Roberts, Ray Romano, Paul Rudd, Jerry Seinfeld, Martin Short, Howard Stern, John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Oprah Winfrey, The Avett Brothers and Brandi Carlisle, Elvis Costello, Dave Matthews Band, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, Mumford and Sons, Ralph Stanley and Amos Lee.
