*Newly out NBA center Jason Collins and his twin brother Jarron will be guests on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on May 15.

Collins became the first openly gay NBA player when he came out in a Sports Illustrated article last week – and ABC has been on him ever since, with “Good Morning America” scoring the first TV interview with the free agent last Tuesday.

Kimmel will be his first late-night stop, and of course, ABC News and the network’s sibling station ESPN (under Disney) have all had exclusive access. Folks are betting that an invite for next season’s “Dancing With the Stars” will come soon.
