Jeb Bush will be one of Stephen Colbert’s first guests when he debuts his Late Show on Sept. 8. 

He’ll join the previously announced George Clooney, which might make for an interesting evening given Clooney is an outspoken Democrat and Bush was one of the whopping 17 candidates who appeared on Thursday’s GOP debate for one of many chances to prove their worthiness as the Republican nominee for president. 

Colbert made the announcement on Twitter, joking about the bloated roster of GOP hopefuls: “Luckily I do 200 shows a year, so I think I can fit them all.”
