Oprah Winfrey is set to interview some of the biggest names in politics, culture and movies next month in Times Square.

The talk show queen will sit down with Black Panther actor Michael B. Jordan, A Star Is Born director and actor Bradley Cooper, and former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke.

The one-on-one conversations will take place as part of a special live event for OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network on Feb. 5, the network said in a statement Friday.

Philanthropist Melinda Gates and Time’s Up President and CEO Lisa Borders will also participate in the event titled “Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations from Times Square.”

O’Rourke lost his bid to replace Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) last year.

He has since become one of the rising stars of the Democratic party and is a potential 2020 presidential contender.

O’Rourke recently said he’ll decide very soon whether to toss his hat into the ring. So, perhaps he’ll make an announcement seated alongside Oprah.

Cooper and Jordan will likely talk Oscars as their films are expected to receive multiple nominations later this month.

Winfrey’s interviews will focus on how each guest has “created an impact and shifted the conversation in their respective fields of entertainment, politics and culture in the last year,” according to OWN.

The live event will place at the PlayStation Theater in New York. It will be broadcast on OWN and released as a podcast.

Tickets start at $225 and can be purchased here.
