It’s Thursday and that means the finish line is in sight. The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will look to get the party started early with tonight’s brand new episode.

So far it has been another week of great shows from Stephen Colbert. Monologues have covered actions by the Biden administration (including returning dogs to the White House) while continuing to recap what messes former President Donald Trump left behind.

All week, The Late Show has had something for everyone when it comes to guests. Stephen Colbert mostly stayed away from politics during his interviews, chatting instead with the likes of tennis star Serena Williams and actors Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci.

Things will change a little bit tonight. The Late Show‘s interviews feature one actor and one journalist.

The first guest tonight is actor Viggo Mortensen. Fans can expect Colbert to have a lot to talk about with the Lord of the Rings star.

Mortensen will be on to discuss his new film Falling. He not only stars in the drama but it marks his directorial debut. Mortensen plays a gay man who must help his conservative, homophobic father as he deals with dementia.

Then, journalist and political commentator Charles Blow joins the show. In addition to writing for The New York Times, Blow also published the book The Devil You Know: A Black Power Manifesto earlier this month. He and Colbert should discuss the book’s themes of race and politics.
