Actor Bruce Willis is a bald, bald man. He's been bald for so long (or had his head shaved to hide it), that we can barely remember the days when he had a full head of hair. So on the new 'Late Show' (11:35PM ET on CBS), Bruce decided to fix this problem once and for all. He showed up wearing a "meat hairpiece": a tribute to Lady Gaga's "meat dress" at this year's VMAs.

On 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), former President Bill Clinton showed up to discuss his recent weight loss, and he also compared heart surgery war stories with host David Letterman. Several years ago, Bill had a quadruple heart bypass, but Dave has done him one better with his own quintuple bypass surgery. Since this operation in 2004, Clinton has become much healthier, and has tamed his love for fast food, meaning that clips like this one are no longer strictly accurate. (Although we're still big fans of the late, great Phil Hartman's Clinton impersonation.) Bill told Letterman that he now weighs the same amount that he did in high school. "You look fantastic," Dave said. To Read More Click here .
Although we think of David Letterman as being fairly "young at heart," we must admit that he's something of an elder statesman -- at least where talk show stars are concerned. Dave began his late night hosting career in 1982 -- long before the advent of, say, "Twitter," or even "The Internet." And so it seems somewhat unfair that he has to grapple with the very recent concept of "Snooki," and then figure out what the phrase "GTL" means. But that's what happens on the new 'Late Show' (11:35PM ET on CBS). To Read More Click Here .
Casey Affleck has admitted that Joaquin Phoenix's performance in the mockumentary I'm Still Here - including Phoenix's squirm-inducing appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman - was fake. But was Letterman in on the joke? "Dave knew about it and Dave loved it because he could play along," Bill Scheft, one of Letterman's writers, said in an interview with Nuvo magazine last year. "I've told people that [everyone was in on the joke], and not only don't people believe me, they tell me that I'm wrong and that [Phoenix] is a schizophrenic and he needs help and he's going to end up like his brother [River]. I said no. I saw the segment notes. It's an act. I saw Ben Affleck's brother taping the whole thing from offstage." To Read More Click Here .
Few can forget Joaquin Phoenix's bizarre appearance on Late Show with David Letterman in February. Now the actor is returning for round 2 on Wednesday, Sept. 22. While promoting his last dramatic film, Two Lovers, the 35-year-old actor appeared on Letterman in 2009 looking disheveled and behaving strangely. Despite Letterman's best efforts to get Phoenix talking -- asking him about his co-stars, his beard, and his "days with the Unabomber" -- Phoenix gave terse, one-word answers. At the time, Phoenix had recently announced his decision to take time off from acting to focus on a music career as a rap star. "I think you're taking a little time off tonight," Letterman joked during the interview, which attracted more than 8 million views online. To Read More Click here .
Jack Hanna is a famous wildlife expert, and a longtime friend of David Letterman. He appears on Letterman's show several times a year, always bringing a random exotic animal along with him. Tonight on the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Jack arrives with a one-year-old cheetah, and plops the enormous creature right on top of Dave's desk. Jack also brings along a type of animal that cheetahs are "deadly afraid of," but you might have a hard time guessing what that animal is. Cheetahs can reach speeds in excess of 70 miles per hour; they kill their pray by snapping their throats. The big cats are fairly deadly. So what would scare a cheetah? A lion? A crocodile? A blue whale? To Read More Click Here .
Making a college graduation speech must be nerve-wracking. There's all that pressure to inspire the young people of tomorrow, plus the fear of making a fool of yourself in public. Certainly, actress Julianna Margulies had some trouble with it On 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), she tells David Letterman how her terror of giving a bad speech led her to curse out Rahm Emanuel, the current White House Chief of Staff. Which was really a potentially awful idea on her part. It seems that Rahm and Julia attended the same college in New York. But Rahm gave the graduation address the year before Margulies had to do it. This freaked her out, because Emanuel gave a "great speech," and now he was being followed by "some TV actress." But luckily (or unluckily), Margulies got to express her frustration with the Chief of Staff. Julianna and Rahm randomly bumped into each other at a White House dinner. So the actress went straight up to him and said this: "You're such an a**hole." To Read More Click Here .
Anne Heche has had a boring summer -- apart from an event that David Letterman was hesitant to bring up on 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). "No, we can't talk about it," said the host. "But is it true that it happened?" Heche replied, "... Our house was robbed. Is that what you're talking about?" Indeed. Thieves took computers, jewelry, cameras and the like. As upsetting as it was, a top priority was explaining it all to her 8-year-old son Homer, including why all the cops and detectives were in the house. He was even-keel about it, until -- the Wii!??!

Parenting can be tough, right? One of the hardest parts of being a parent has to be getting up really early every morning, at whatever time that your kid wakes up. Luckily, on the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM on CBS), we get some special tips for avoiding this entire problem. Actress Jessica Alba has a daughter -- Honor Marie -- who just turned two years old. Honor doesn't get out of bed until 9am. Host David Letterman is stunned -- his own son wakes up nearly three hours before that. To Read More Click Here .
Michael Douglas appeared on 'The Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) to discuss his recent struggle with throat cancer -- and even David Letterman had to mention that Mike was looking pretty good! Especially considering that he's battling a potentially terminal illness. Douglas was only diagnosed with the disease three weeks ago. But by the time doctors discovered his throat cancer, it was already in the "advanced" stage. Michael just completed his first week of radiation and chemotherapy -- doctors now put his chances of recovery at 80% or better, which is great news. Cancer or no cancer, Douglas had already promised to appear on Letterman's program -- so that's exactly what he did. Dave was impressed; and he was amazed at how well Mike was holding up under the strain. "You've never looked better," Dave said to him, "and this proves that you're a tough guy, for God's sake." Yes indeed, it does. To Read More Click Here .
