A lineup of A-listers has been unveiled for the premiere week of CBS’s “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” which is set to launch Sept. 8.

CBS News reports that, in addition to the already announced first-night guests George Clooney and Jeb Bush (with musical guest Jon Batiste), the week’s guest list will include Scarlett Johansson and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, along with musical guest Kendrick Lamar (Wednesday, Sept. 9), Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and Toby Keith (Sept. 10), and Amy Schumer and Stephen King, with musical guest Troubled Waters (Sept. 11).

Colbert, previously a regular in the Comedy Central late-night lineup, is taking over the crucial 11:35 p.m. slot on CBS that was previously held down by late-night fixture David Letterman.
