(Newser) – Larry King doesn’t believe in an afterlife, and hence wants to be frozen when he dies, he reveals in a new special airing tomorrow night. Dinner with the Kings sees Larry sit down with a gaggle of celebrities—namely Conan O’Brien, Tyra Banks, Shaquille O’Neal, Seth MacFarlane, Jack Dorsey, Quincy Jones and Russell Brand—to discuss a range of personal topics. At one point, Brand apparently raided Shawn King’s underwear drawer on camera, according to CNN's advance writeup.

But King himself dropped the headline bombshell. “I want to be frozen on the hope that they’ll find whatever I died of and bring me back,” he told his guests, explaining that he was terrified of death “because I don’t think I’m going anywhere.” He then tried to move on, but O’Brien wouldn’t let him. “Listen, two things just happened,” he said. “You revealed you want your head chopped off and frozen, and Russell Brand went into your wife's room and stole your underwear. And now you're moving on with your prepared questions.”
