"Aquaman", played by Craig Ferguson

Aquaman is a fictional comic book superhero who appears in DC Comics. Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, the character 1st appeared in More Fun Comics #73 (Nov. 1941). He was a founding member of the team the Justice League of America. In the 1990s-present Modern Age of Comic Books, Aquaman's character became more serious than in most previous interpretations, with storylines depicting the weight of his role as king of Atlantis.[1]

In the 2000's, Aquaman has taken his role even more seriously and decided to begin sharing his knowledge with the world via a series of appearances on the Late Late Show with the appropriately named "Dear Aquaman". Though he doesn't quite come off as a Superhero in these segments, he still does his best to give out advice despite his delusional and rather perverted style. The latest series of appearances also unveiled his new sidekick, Aqualad.
"Arnold Schwarzenegger" [recurring], played by Josh Robert Thompson

"Arnold Schwarzenegger", is an Austrian-American bodybuilder, actor, businessman, and politician, currently serving as the 38th Governor of the state of California. He's most famous for his work on the big screen as a star of both action and comedy. Notable early successes include Conan the Barbarian (1982), soon followed by his signature role in James Cameron's 1984 Terminator (and two of it's sequels). What followed was a succession of action film hits: Commando (1985), Raw Deal (1986) and Predator (1987). The films Twins (1988) and Kindergarten Cop (1990) were also very successful though they were comedies.

His career fell into decline in the late 1990's and early 2000's with only the third film in the Terminator franchise being a box office success. Making it the perfect time to make the move to the California Governors mansion in 2003. Though basically a failure in that job he's remained and even won re-election (against a wood door knocker of a candiate). Come February 2007 many were surprised to hear the news that the "Governator" had joined the recurring cast of the Late Late Show. Offering his opinions on the days events in a series of segments. Always with cigar in hand and albiet in a rather perverted and unprofessional style.
"Larry King", played by Craig Ferguson

Lawrence Harvey Zeiger (born November 19, 1933), better known by his stage name "Larry King", is an American television and radio host. He is recognized in the United States as one of the premier broadcast interviewers of modern times. King has conducted some 40,000 interviews with politicians, athletes, entertainers, and other newsmakers. He began hosting the nightly interview TV show Larry King Live on CNN in 1985.

Unfortunately, "Larry" is now age 75, and is no longer at the top of his game as illustrated by the clips provided to the Late Late Show over the past couple of years. Though he still interviews the biggest names and newsmakers ("George W. Bush" and "Levi Johnson") in the industry he now has trouble in remembering many facts about their lives. Such as their current project, their name or that they're even there with him. Never the less he's still the King of Talk, regardless of whether he's grilling a scumbag Senator about the latest sex scandal or...interviewing a bowl of fruit.
"Michael Caine", played by Craig Ferguson

"Michael Caine" is an English born actor who has appeared in more than 100 films, and is one of only two actors to have been nominated for an Academy Award for acting in every decade since the 1960s. His most prominent roles came in the 1960's and 1970's, including: Zulu (1964), The Ipcress File (1965), Billion Dollar Brain (1967) and others as Harry Palmer, the woman-chasing title character in Alfie (1966), The Italian Job (1969), Get Carter (1971) and The Man Who Would Be King (1975).

In more current times, "Caine" has signed on as a recurring commentator for the Late Late Show. Appearing in numerous self-titled segments such as: 'Michael Caine in Spain', 'Michael Caine in Space' and most recently, 'Michael Caine's Animal Kingdom'. These segments almost always feature Caine (with Wine glass and cigar in hand) making amusing comments about life.
"Prince Charles", played by Craig Ferguson

The Prince Charles, Prince of Wales (Charles Philip Arthur George) is the oldest child of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, making him heir apparent, equally and separately, to the thrones of the sixteen Commonwealth realms. In other words he's next in line to be the King of England. We think. After many years spent cheating on his 1st wife (Lady Diana Spencer) he finally married his long time mistress Camilla Parker Bowles. He finally made the mistake of marrying her in 2005.

On the professional front, while waiting (impatiently) for the Queen Mother to kick the bucket, he's gone in search of ways to fill his days away from wife Camilla. This resulted in the Prince entering the world of late night talk with his own BBC show, The Rather Late Programme. A clone (rip off) of the Late Late Show, the series features the balding, severely buck toothed, big eared, dimwitted Prince in front of Buckingham Palace for the usual monologue. After ascending to the throne he takes a question from a viewer and embarasses himself by trying to give advice.
"Sean Connery", played by Craig Ferguson

"Sean Connery" is an internationally famous actor most well known for playing the beloved role of James Bond from 1962-1983. In more current times he's been reduced to a bumbling foul mouthed booze addicted slob with a fetish for hookers (dead or alive). Which makes him perfect for a late night talk show.

"Connery", long a personal hero of host Craig Ferguson's, has become a recurring member of the Late Late Show's cast of 'career dead' celebrities. He appears from time to time and is usually in the oddest places such as filling in for MSNBC's Keith Olbermann on Countdown or appearing on Seasame Street, CSI and Survivor as a guest star.
