James Cameron, Ellie Kemper are guests on next ‘StarTalk Live’ at Beacon Theatre
Neil DeGrasse Tyson's StarTalk talk show on National Geographic Channel will be taping an episode at NYC's Beacon Theatre on November 14. The special guests are pretty special for this one, including Avatar/Titanic/Terminator director James Cameron, Kimmy Schmidt star Ellie Kemper, plus Kevin Hand (NASA Jet Propulsion Labs), Julie Huber (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution), as well as longtime co-host Eugene Mirman. Tickets are on sale now.
James Cameron may dish a little about his long-in-the-works Avatar sequels, of which there are now four, all with titles: Avatar: The Way of Water, Avatar: The Seed Bearer, Avatar: The Tulkun Rider, and Avatar: The Quest for Eywa. They're tentpoled for December 2020, December 2021, December 2024, and December 2025, respectively. (The first two have finished filming, according to co-star Sigourney Weaver.) Consider yourself warned. The series has also ditched the Papyrus font for the titles and credits. Cameron has been a guest on StarTalk before where Tyson has checked the science of his film (watch below).
The fifth season of StarTalk premieres November 12 on National Geographic and guests include the late Anthony Bourdain, Jeff Goldblum, former Vice President Al Gore, Olivia Munn, Darren Aronofsky, James Marsden, Christiane Amanpour, Anna Deavere Smith, Dan Rather, Patricia Cornwell, and more.
