Will Ferrell is Conan's guest on May 2nd and he's coming to shave off Conan's beard!
I believe the week of May 2nd coincides with Ferrell's last week as Deangelo Vickers on The Office, though I'm not certain of that. I don't think Ferrell has a movie coming out that week [EDIT: He has a movie coming out a week later.] Or maybe it really is just a fun stunt revolving around the end of Conan's beard after 15 or so months.
Will returned on tonight's show, interrupting a Tina Fey clip "from her new book." Will used a razor to slowly remove shaving cream from an orange balloon, until the balloon popped.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

Here's that clip:
Actually, the entire episode was excellent. Tina Fey was great and Dr. Sanjay Gupta also killed with his medical trauma flashcards. Worth watching when the episode gets posted at noon ET.
I like Capaldi, but he's really gotten into a very unenviable position right here. The role is clearly still being written with Matt Smith in mind, so doing something different with the material is visibly challenging.
