Not to his old show, "The Celebrity Apprentice," but to "The Tonight Show," where he'll be a guest on Sept. 11.

Currently leading the Republican field in the 2016 presidential race, Trump will sit down with host Jimmy Fallon to discuss his campaign and other issues, NBC announced Tuesday. Terrence Howard and Pharrell Williams will also be guests that night.

Other scheduled guests next week (countering premiere week for CBS' "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert") are:

Sept. 8: Richard Gere, Jessica Simpson and Keith Urban.

Sept. 9: Justin Timberlake, Ellen DeGeneres and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Sept. 10: Andy Samberg and Carrie Underwood.
