Dave Chappelle, one of the more memorable guests to ever appear on Bravo’s “Inside the Actor’s Studio,” will take over the show for one day as host James Lipton’s takes a turn in the hotseat.
According to E! Online, the reclusive comic will interview Lipton as part of the show’s 200th anniversary episode, which will feature highlights from its past 14 seasons.
Chappelle famously discussed his abrupt departure from Comedy Central’s “Chappelle Show” and subsequent retreat to Africa during a Dec. 2005 taping of “Actor’s Studio” that aired in Feb 2006.
The two-hour Chappelle-hosted special will air Nov. 10 with a look back at Lipton’s interviews with Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Will Smith and Angelina Jolie and others.
