PAULA PATTON, RUSSELL SIMMONS, ANGELA BASSETT and ICE CUBE are among the Hollywood stars who will appear on ARSENIO HALL's revived TV talk show when it launches next week (09Sep13) in America.

Hall will also welcome Hollywood stars Lisa Kudrow, Chris Tucker, Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet, Djimon Hounsou, Seth Green, Giovanni Ribisi and Allison Janney to the set throughout September (13).
He says, "My first... guests offer a taste of pop culture and represent the mix of talent I hope to have on my show every week. I am honored to welcome friends - both old and new - to my show. My goal is to have fun, make people laugh and send viewers to bed with a smile on their face."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hall's musical guests will include Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Nas, Mac Miller and Earth, Wind & Fire.
