Stephen Colbert will be the first late-night host since the election to have Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a guest. It was confirmed today by CBS that Clinton will be returning to “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on September 19, 2017 on CBS.
As we mentioned before, this will be Clinton’s first late-night television appearance since the 2016 presidential election, but it will be her second visit to “The Late Show” overall. Clinton first appeared on Tuesday, October 27, 2015.
In the show, Clinton will sit down with Colbert to discuss her run for the White House in 2016, her thoughts on the current administration and her new book, What Happened ($15 at Amazon), which is published by Simon & Schuster, a division of CBS. That’s probably not a coincidence that CBS is both publishing Clinton’s new book, and the first to host Clinton after her election lost. Either way it should make for some great TV, and that’s what we all want.
Joining Clinton that night will be Academy Award-winning actress Emma Stone, making her first appearance on the Late Show. Stone will most likely be discussing her new film “Battle of the Sexes,” where she plays Tennis Star Billie Jean King, and co-stars with Steve Carell and Elisabeth Shue.
If Disney fans are lucky, Stone may drop a few hints about “Cruella,” the upcoming live-action adaptation where Stone will be playing the role of Cruella de Vil, the infamous villain of the “101 Dalmations” story. The film is expected to be a lot like “Maleficent,” exploring the origins of Cruella and how she became so evil. Disney has been quiet on the live-action remake, but Alex Timbers is expected to direct the “Cruella” for Disney. No other castings have been confirmed at this time.
Speaking of Maleficent, Angelina Jolie is expected to return to the role for a sequel at some point, but we will have to wait for that announcement as well.
