It's a pretty decent lineup on tonight's Late Late Show, all things considered
As previously announced during the week, retired Olympic gold-winning medallist and member of the Kardashian family Caitlyn Jenner will be on the show in what will be an exclusive Irish interview. She will be talking about her decades-long struggle of coming to terms with her body dysmorphia, her triumphant Olympic past, her thoughts on President Trump and her current relationship with the Kardashian clan.
Also on the show, award-winning actor Brendan Gleeson will be in studio to chat about his upcoming movie Paddington 2 where he plays criminal 'Knuckles McGinty'. The international star will also discuss his role in Mr Mercedes which continues on RTÉ One, his foray into directing for the first time and his take on recent Hollywood controversies.
Pulitzer prize winner Ambassador Samantha Power will tell Ryan how a young girl from Dublin grew up to be the US Ambassador to the United Nations. She will discuss how she became Barrack Obama's trusted adviser and how Ireland is still such an important part of her life. Samantha is in Dublin to give the T.S Eliot Lecture in the Abbey Theatre this Sunday.
Retired Irish footballer Kevin Doyle will talk life after football and discuss coming to terms with several concussions lead to his decision to quit the game. He will reveal how the decision dashed his hopes that might have figured in Martin O'Neill's plans for next year's World Cup, should Ireland qualify from this week's playoffs. He'll also talk about moving his family back to Wexford this week after a spell in Colorado.
There will undoubtedly be a few laughs provided by Tommy Tiernan, who will chat to Ryan about his new show in Vicar Street Under The Influence and what it was like appearing in Dave Allen’s biopic – Dave Allen At Peace.
Ryan will also be catching up with legendary country music star Philomena Begley. She will reveal how she's ensured she is still relevant to the music industry 55 years after starting in show-business and how she made it big in Nashville.
Catch it all on The Late Late Show on RTE One at 9.35pm.
