'The Late Late Show': Don Cheadle Talks Ghosts, Booze And Heroin (VIDEO)

When you're an A-list celebrity like Don Cheadle, you get to stay in some pretty swanky digs and sometimes, as he told "The Late Late Show" (Weeknights, 12:37 a.m. EST on CBS) host Craig Ferguson, those digs have some added extras. Like ghosts, for example.

Coaxed by Ferguson into elaborating on his "haunted hotel" story, Cheadle said he'd stayed at The Waldorf, which he believes is haunted. But only, he quipped, by very posh ghosts.

Recovered alcoholic Ferguson started riffing on his drinking days and asked, "Have you ever been out getting drunk, and you drunk so much you're suddenly sober?" Ah, those good old nights out in the pubs of Cumbernauld ... In fact, Ferguson's drinking was so out of control he "went so crazy, and then drunk, and then boom! Rehab!"

The pair joked that family man Cheadle is very clean-living. "Apart from the heroin," of course...

The craziness continues on "The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" each weeknight at 12:37 a.m. EST on CBS.
