Matt Smith to be on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson
As promised on Doctor Who: Podshock, we can now confirm that Matt Smith is scheduled to be on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on the same night as the next 25th Anniversary Event for the Gallifreyan Embassy, Tuesday the 16th of November 2010.
He is there for the 3:30 pm (PST) recording of the show in Los Angeles, CA. Which also means he won't be able to attend our event that evening on here the East coast.
There has been a good deal of confusion leading up this late night talk show appearance. As recently as last Thursday, the office of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson was sending out emails indicating that Matt Smith would not be appearing, meanwhile, that same day Craig Ferguson's Twitter account @CraigyFerg was tweeting that Matt Smith is to appear that night. In addition, there will be a Dalek there as well (which was tweeted the following day)!
According to 1iota.com which handles the tickets for the show and which according to the email that was sent from the show's office is the only source to be trusted has Jeff Goldblum as the guest with Matt Smith now. Just last week, it was Jeff Goldblum with Elisabeth Banks with no mention of Smith. Then she was moved to Wednesday, now she is not listed at all. Obviously, these guest appearances are subject to actors and actresses availability on any given night. You can't consider anything carved in stone really.
There is no mention of @nerdist appearing on the site at this time.
Whatever the case is, tickets for the recording for that Tuesday show has been sold out for well over a week now. If you are among the fortunate enough to be attending, I am sure you will have a fabulous time as Matt Smith is delightful in person. I think he will have a great deal of fun on show like this with its format as well.
Also please note if you are recording this episode with your DVR, that it is Tuesday night on CBS, but after midnight. On some systems that may read as Wednesday.
