Conan: Leno won't be a guest on new show

Seth Rogen, Tom Hanks and Harrison Ford are just a few of the stars who will appear on Conan O'Brien's new late-night talk show over the next two weeks. One name that won't be landing on the list anytime soon? Jay Leno.

"He can come as the musical guest, because that I want to see," O'Brien remarks in a candid new interview in Playboy's December issue before adding, "No, there are certain things I will not do, regardless of the price.”

And while the "Conan" show will tape not far from the "Tonight Show," O'Brien doesn't anticipate that he and Leno will ever cross paths. "We hang out in different circles, so I don’t think we’ll be bumping into each other," he explains.

Seth Rogen to be guest on 'Conan' debut

After spending 24 hours watching the Team Coco live cam, it’d be reasonable to expect that one of the first guests on "Conan" would end up being a dancing taco or someone in a bear suit doing ‘80s aerobics.

But it turns out that the very first people to take a seat in that specially designed guest chair when the show kicks off will be Seth Rogen and whoever wins the “First Guest Poll,” according to a statement from TBS (which is owned by the same company that owns CNN). (At the time of this post, Jack Nicholson was in the lead with 3,232 votes.) Jack White will be on deck to do a musical performance, as well.

The rest of the week lines up as follows:

Just another day at the office... well, if Conan O’ Brien is your boss.

Team Coco is giving fans the opportunity to spend 24 hours with the king of late night talk show comedy and the result is kind of hilarious.

The live Coco cam began streaming at 1 p.m. ET yesterday as part of a unique promotional campaign for O'Brien's debut on TBS on November 8.

Who do you want to see as the first 'Conan' guest?

It's a big day for Conan O'Brien fans. Beginning at 1 p.m. ET today, the talk show host will launch his Live Coco Cam, which will take fans behind the scenes at Team Coco for 24 hours.

As if that weren't interactive enough, O'Brien has set up a poll that allows viewers to choose who they would like to see as the very first guest on the November 8 premiere of his TBS show "Conan."

Among the candidates: Pope Benedict XVI, Justin Bieber, The Sultan of Brunei, the cast of the 2004 live-action "Fat Albert" movie, REO Speedwagon, and Arlene Wagner, the curator of Oregon's Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum.
