What in the world is Francis Ford Coppola up to?

Last week, we shared photos of Academy Award-winning writer-director Coppola on the set of CBS' daytime soap opera "The Young and the Restless," where he said he was "learning a lot."

And now we've got an exclusive look at him hanging out in the control room at CBS's late-night talk show, "The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson."

What do a soap opera and a late-night talk show have in common? And how could that translate to Coppola's work? Our guess is as good as yours -- share your thoughts on what he might be working on in the comments!

Here's Coppola with host Craig Ferguson:
