Secretary of State John Kerry is stopping by Stephen Colbert’s couch as a guest of The Late Show on Thursday, CBS has announced.

Kerry, who recently led negotiations with Iran to curtail the country’s nuclear program and presided over re-establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba, is currently in New York for the opening of the UN General Assembly.

He joins previously announced guests Claire Danes and YouTube comedian PewDiePie.

The secretary comes as the latest Colbert guest hailing from the world of politics, including presidential hopefuls Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, and Bernie Sanders; Vice President Joe Biden; and first lady Michelle Obama, who will appear on tonight’s show.

Kerry is well acquainted with Colbert, having visited him on The Colbert Report and provided a rare glimpse at his backstage persona.
