Posted on

Mel Gibson will be stopping by Jay Leno’s Tonight Show on May 25 for the comedian’s final Monday night performance. According to People.com, the actor, who recently dominated headlines due to his high-profile divorce from his wife of 29 years, will join musician Lyle Lovett on the show. It will mark Gibson’s first public outing since the divorce was made public. Whether or not he’ll talk about the split will be another matter.

Other guests for Jay’s final week include Dwight Yoakam and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on May 26; Wanda Sykes and Sarah McLachlan on May 27; and Prince and Billy Crystal on May 28. Guests for his final show have yet to be announced.
