Stephen Colbert announces all-star lineup for his post-Super Bowl special

Last fall, CBS—presumably not content with pulling in millions of viewers for the Super Bowl 50—announced that it would air live episodes of The Late Show and The Late Late Show right after the game’s conclusion. Although the network might be overestimating audiences’ ability to remain awake (or sober) long enough to make it through two live specials, Stephen Colbert is nonetheless lining up a whole slew of actors and comedians (mostly the latter) for the viewing pleasure of anyone who isn’t in a food coma.

On Thursday, the Late Show host began rolling out the big names on Twitter, starting with Whiskey Tango Foxtrot leads Tina Fey and Margot Robbie. Colbert eventually revealed that Fey and Robbie will be joined by Will Ferrell, Keegan-Michael Key, and Jordan Peele. There’s no word on what they’ll all be doing—maybe Sunday-night quarterbacking the Puppy Bowl?—but it will probably include some stumping for upcoming films (Zoolander 2 and Keanu, anyone?), and almost certainly be hilarious.
