This year, Letterman sits down with Charles Barkley and Miley Cyrus. 

Barkley is an NBA legend turned popular co-host for Inside the NBA. As he takes on the role of interviewee for Letterman, it will be interesting to see Barkley's takeaways from the current league and its players. 

Cyrus has been entertaining the masses since her popular series Hannah Montana. Once she dedicated her attention to music, she's exploded in the pop genre, even earning a few Grammys at the top of 2024. Perhaps Letterman will get some insight into what's next for the superstar.
