Those remain the only names with confirmed appearance dates, but they are no longer the only sources of anticipation. In a Friday press release, CBS revealed a myriad of additional interview and musical guests confirmed for upcoming appearances on “Late Late.”

Other upcoming interview guests (in alphabetical order) include athlete David Beckham, comedian Rob Corddry, music executive Simon Cowell, actress Courteney Cox, Emmy Award winner Jon Cryer, Emmy Award winner Claire Danes, Academy Award winner Michael Douglas, actor Jeff Goldblum, actor Mark Harmon, actor Thomas Lennon, actress Katharine McPhee, Emmy Award winner Megan Mullally, actor Matthew Perry, actress Freida Pinto, actress Aubrey Plaza, comedian Tig Notaro, chef Gordon Ramsay and actress Kerry Washington*.

Booked musical guests (in alphabetical order) include Echosmith, George Ezra, Noel Gallagher, OK Go, Olly Murs, The Ting Tings and Jessie Ware.

*CBS last month announced Kerry Washington as one of its opening week guests. It is unclear whether she will be added to one of the aforementioned premiere week shows or moved to a later installment.
