David Letterman started the process of saying goodbye to the Late Show he hosted for nearly 22 years on Wednesday afternoon – and wasn’t he in fine company?

Letterman, 68, had already welcomed a galaxy of stars during his final weeks as the show’s host (Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, President Barack Obama, Sarah Jessica Parker, Billy Crystal, Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, Scarlett Johansson, John Travolta and Bruce Willis – to name just a few). And in advance of his last taping, more A-listers made their way into the historic Ed Sullivan Theater.

For starters, Jerry Seinfeld, with his wife Jessica, and the Foo Fighters have already Tweeted their support live from the scene.

Photographers camped out saw Emmy winning comedic actors Baldwin, Fey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus heading into the theater.
