Larry King, 78, isn't going down without a fight. On Sunday's CNN Presents: A Larry King Special: Dinner with the Kings, the former talk show host told a group of celebrity guests about his intentions to have his body frozen after he dies.

"I want to be frozen on the hope that they'll find whatever I died of and bring me back," he told his guests, Conan O'Brien, Tyra Banks, Shaquille O'Neal, Seth MacFarlane, Quincy Jones, and Russell Brand. King also spoke openly about his skepticism about life after death. "My biggest fear is death, because I don't think I'm going anywhere," he admitted.

"This is big news," O'Brien observed, while MacFarlane followed through with some questions, asking King if he thought he would want to live forever. "You bet your ass," King responded. The freezing process, he acknowledged, is "the only hedging of a bet."
