Conan O’Brien is set to bring a star-studded entourage with him as he takes his show to Comic-Con this year. For the first time ever, the talk show host will be airing four episodes of Conan at the event in San Diego, to go along with two additional weekend specials.
According to the L.A. Times, O’Brien’s guests on Conan will include a number of popular Hollywood stars from The Hunger Games. Fans will be excited to learn that Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth will all be joining O’Brien on July 9 from Comic-Con.
To add to the highly anticipated slate of interviews, O’Brien will also be interviewing stars from HBO’s hit fantasy series, Game of Thrones. Cast members from the hit show that are set to appear on Conan include Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Liam Cunningham, Natlie Dormer, Conleth Hill, Hannah Murray, Sophie Turner, Carice Van Houten, and Maisie Williams.
At the same time, fans at Comic-Con will have plenty of time to get familiar with the Game of Thrones stars. In fact, the cast members are set to appear in a panel at the event, which is being moderated by Late Night host Seth Meyers.
In addition to The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones actors, stars of The Walking Dead are set to join O’Brien during Comic-Con. The cast members, which include Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Steven Yuen, and Danai Gurira, are also set to present a panel at the event in addition to their appearance on Conan.
While Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood and The Talking Dead’s Chris Hardwick will start things off with O’Brien on July 8, cast members from a fourth and unnamed show will wrap up the event at Comic-Con.
Although O’Brien is keeping the identity of the show highly secret, he did reveal a little hint as to what it might be. “But if there are any telepaths out there, we’re thinking about it extra hard,” he teased about the mystery show. Whatever the show it turns out to be, considering the other high profile names he’ll be hosting, it is sure to be a good one.
Meanwhile, O’Brien’s unprecedented week of shows at Comic-Con follows what has been a busy year for the talk show host. O’Brien recently took his show to Cuba, and became the first late-night show to broadcast from that country since 1962, when the United States issued an embargo against the island.
