"The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" has set its guest lineup for its post-Super Bowl 50 timeslot, CBS announced Thursday.

Tina Fey and Margot Robbie from the upcoming film "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot," Will Ferrell from "Zoolander 2," and comedy duo Key & Peele, who star together in "Keanu," will join Colbert as his guests during the live broadcast from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City.
