David Letterman’s final guest will be the same as his first. The CBS Late Night host has picked Bill Murray to be his last announced interview subject.
Murray has been on Letterman’s show 43 times over the last 33 years. During his first visit to Letterman (then on NBC) in 1982, the Lost in Translation actor memorably declared to Dave: “You got out of Indianapolis and didn’t look back. I’m just waiting for the other shoe to fall on you, man, and I want to be there when it hits the floor! I had a chance to strangle Richard Nixon and I didn’t—and I regret it!”
Other guests during Letterman’s final week include actor Tom Hanks and singer Eddie Vedder.
Murray will appear on Letterman’s second-to-last episode. Letterman’s final show is May 20, which CBS says “which will be an hour filled with surprises [and] memorable highlights.” Here’s Murray’s very first late-night interview with Dave:
Letterman also will be answering questions instead of asking them on CBS Sunday Morning (Sunday, 9 a.m.), when he sits down with Jane Pauley in what’s billed as his only TV interview before exiting The Late Show.
