Elon Musk to appear on second night of Stephen Colbert’s Late Show Sept. 9


CBS today announced a full lineup of guests for the upcoming kick off of The Late Show hosted by Stephen Colbert, and scheduled for the second show is none other than Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.

With the upcoming Model X release, that will surely be one topic of conversation among the two, but it’s possible something bigger is planned given this will the second show of the new Late Show with Colbert. Musk has appeared with Colbert on his old program several times over the years, but we’ll have to see what Colbert’s new format at The Late Show adds to the mix.

Interestingly, Musk will be followed by Uber CEO Travis Kalanick scheduled to appear on the show the next night. Musk recently hinted that the two companies could become big competitors (or collaborators?) in the ridesharing/car service space when answering a question regarding Uber’s interest in purchasing Teslas with self-driving car technology.

Musk is scheduled to appear on Wednesday, Sept. 9 alongside actress Scarlett Johansson and musical guest Kendrick Lamar.
