Following Monday's announcement that Jay Leno would return to 'The Tonight Show' next week with such divisive guests as Sarah Palin and the cast of MTV's 'Jersey Shore,' the 'Late Show with David Letterman' yesterday revealed a similarly heady guest lineup.

Next on the 'Late Show' roster is Jerry Seinfeld. Though his new show 'The Marriage Ref' is on NBC (starting March 4) and Seinfeld has publicly supported Leno's return to late-night, evidently the comedian wants to stay on both hosts' good sides. After all, his most recent guest appearance was on the premiere episode of 'The Jay Leno Show,' Leno's infamous foray into prime time.

While specific dates have not been announced, the lineup also mentions Matt Damon and former NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw. Meanwhile on 'Tonight,' the week's other guests include Jamie Foxx and downhill Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn.
