This week the big night is Friday, and the big guest is Morgan Freeman. He will be on three times, though his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live is a recent repeat. He’s promoting his latest film, Dolphin Tale 2, in which he plays a prosthetics researcher. On Thursday he will be on The Talk. Friday night starts with Freeman’s recent appearance with Jimmy Kimmel. Freeman’s other appearance that night is with Craig Ferguson, and it stands an excellent chance of veering into weirdness.
There are other guests of note this week. On Tuesday, Conan O’Brien will be all kinds of awkward with urologist Dr. Jennifer Berman. Terry Gilliam, director of the new dystopic science fiction film The Zero Theorem, makes two appearances this week. The film tells the story of a computer program seeking the meaning of life through his work. On Wednesday Gilliam will be on The Tonight Show, and on Thursday he will visit with Stephen Colbert. Also on Thursday, one of the leads of Manhattan, John Benjamin Hickey, will be on Bravo’s late night talker, Watch What Happens Live.
