Who will be David Letterman’s final guests? There’s been plenty of speculation leading up to Letterman’s final stint on the “Late Show” Wednesday night. The television personality has hosted the CBS show from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York for more than two decades (and has been on the air for more than three decades altogether) and will soon say his final good-bye. Some of the top celebrities in Hollywood are expected to help him make a memorable departure, though none has been confirmed. Listed below are some of the top guesses:
The Foo Fighters:
Their rep wouldn’t confirm that the Foo Fighters are Letterman’s final guest, but their Twitter account tells a different story. An afternoon post read, “Final time on this stage,” added the hashtag #ThanksDave and tagged Letterman’s Twitter handle. Hmm … Doesn’t seem like there’s much of a mystery there.

After the taping of the show wrapped up, audience members said a clip called “The Final Things I’d Like to Say to David Letterman” was shown, Newsday writes. Some of those stars included Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Steve Martin, Barbara Walters, Tina Fey, Jim Carrey, Peyton Manning and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Steve. Jim. Jerry. Chris. Watch Dave's last show
