PEOPLE – It looks like Stephen Colbert really is leaning in.
After calling late-night television “a bit of a sausagefest,” Colbert has landed two mega-watt female stars – and all-around powerful women – as some of his first guests when he takes over The Late Show on Sept. 8.
Captain America: Civil War superhero Scarlett Johansson is set to stop by Sept. 9, and breakout comedian Amy Schumer will drop in Sept. 11, CBS announced Monday. (A tip for Colbert’s Eminem-tested, celebrity-ignorant alter ego: Don’t call the former “ScarJo.”)
Trainwreck, which Schumer wrote and stars in, has grossed more than $120 million worldwide. Schumer, 34, has also aligned herself with her cousin, Sen. Chuck Schumer, to advocate for gun control. Meanwhile, Forbes has anointed Johansson, 30, No. 2 on its World’s Highest Paid Actresses list, and she’s also incredibly politically active.
