The Graham Norton Show has revealed which celebrity guests will be joining Graham Norton for a chat on the show next week.

On Friday, May 15, the titular host will be joined virtually by Avengers: Endgame star Mark Ruffalo as he takes a break from all things Marvel to promote his upcoming HBO miniseries I Know This Much Is True.

Based on Wally Lamb's novel of the same name, the drama sees Ruffalo play identical twin brothers Dominick and Thomas Birdsey, as the former looks back on his complicated relationship with his brother, who suffers from paranoid schizophrenia.

The Fighter star Melissa Leo, Ma's Juliette Lewis, Vivarium's Imogen Poots and Mrs Fletcher's Kathryn Hahn also star in the series.

Elsewhere on the late night socially-distanced show, Will Ferrell will be video-calling in from the US to talk about his new comedy film Eurovision.

And that's not all as Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal, the stars of BBC and Hulu's latest phenomenon Normal People, will be checking in too.

In the heart-wrenching, Dublin-set drama, the duo play Marianne and Connell respectively, two young people who encounter one another at significant points throughout both of their lives from school to university and beyond.
