O’Brien will debut his late-night TV talk show in the UK from August 4. It will air Monday to Thursday on the free-to-air network, truTV. On the difference between American and British guests:
Sometimes I prefer [UK] guests because the American guests that I talk to… some of the actors get it from the (Marlon) Brando/James Dean school of ‘You’re only cool if you mumble and you look up’. Whereas you get these British actors on who are just great storytellers; they’re bright and they want to mix it up and not everything has to be airbrushed by a publicist beforehand.
