Just a guess, but health care will probably come up.

For the past two nights, Jimmy Kimmel has used a portion of his late-night show to go after the latest Republican-led health care proposal.

And now, Jimmy Kimmel Live will welcome one of the 100 senators expected to vote on that bill next week – Al Franken.

Franken, currently midway through his second term as a Democratic U.S. senator for Minnesota, will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night

He gets second billing behind Halle Berry, by the way.

What'll they talk about? There's no episode preview, but the whole health care thing will probably come up, especially since Franken and Kimmel are both against the proposal, dubbed the Graham-Cassidy bill.

Franken, referencing the failed health careoverhaul bids earlier this year, said in a news release he's "incredibly alarmed that there's an equally devastating – if not worse – Republican proposal that's rapidly gaining steam in the Senate."

You can read a summary of the bill here, or check out our earlier story about what it might do here.

So they could talk about that.

Franken's also been promoting his book Al Franken, Giant of the Senate (though not with Kathy Griffin or Bill Maher) since it's May release.

Jimmy Kimmel Live airs at 10:35 p.m. central on ABC.
