Former Gov. Buddy Roemer is scheduled to appear on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” Thursday at 10:30 p.m., according to the Comedy Central website.

Satirist Stephen Colbert tapped the Republican presidential candidate from Louisiana for an appearance on his show after another long shot GOP candidate, Herman Cain, former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and Georgia radio talk show host, backed out of Thursday night’s show.

“Buddy Roemer is my guy now,” Colbert said on his Tuesday night show.
