David Letterman Retiring: Most Notable Latino Guests

Last week, David Letterman announced he is set to retire within the next year. "It's been great...but I'm retiring," he told the audience. “We don’t have the timetable for this precisely down – I think it will be at least a year or so, but sometime in the not too distant future, 2015 for the love of God.” The 66-year-old late night show host, who got his start on CBS in 1993, is considered one of the greatest of all time. "David Letterman is the greatest there is and ever was," fellow late night personality, Jimmy Kimmel Tweeted.

In honor of Letterman's extensive late night career, we're taking a look at some of his most notable Latino celebrity guests:
