Stephen Colbert questions James Franco over sexual misconduct accusations

TwitterFacebook

James Franco was pressed for answers by Stephen Colbert on The Late Show on Tuesday, following accusations of sexual misconduct since his Golden Globe win.

The Disaster Artist star was interviewed by the talk show host, broadcast mere hours after The New York Times cancelled a TimesTalks event with Franco scheduled for Wednesday. 

A public supporter of the Time’s Up movement against systemic sexual abuse in Hollywood and other industries, Franco wore one of the widely publicized pins to the Globes on Sunday. But during and after the ceremony, in which Franco won a Golden Globe for Best Actor for his role in The Disaster Artist, several women posted accusations of sexual misconduct on Twitter. Read more…

Stephen Colbert grilling Oliver Stone about Putin is excruciating to watch

TwitterFacebook

It shouldn’t be surprising in this current political climate that Oliver Stone’s four-part Showtime series about Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, hasn’t had the warmest of receptions.

Stephen Colbert is more known for his quips, but a meeting with Stone on The Late Show on Monday proved too irresistible for the host. Colbert asked the director if he was “cosying up” to what some would call a dictator.

Stephen Colbert has a brilliant explanation of why Donald Trump fired James Comey

TwitterFacebook

The big news everyone is talking about is Donald Trump firing FBI director James Comey. 

It happened just 10 minutes before Stephen Colbert taped The Late Show, but the late night host had plenty of rounds to fire. 

“That shows no gratitude at all. Did Trump forget about the Hillary emails that Comey talked about?” Colbert said. 

Trump said in a letter that Comey was “not able to effectively lead the Bureau” after the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, but Colbert thinks he has a more plausible explanation. 

“I think he was fired because Comey couldn’t guess the name Rumpelstiltskin,” he joked. Read more…

“I don’t think I’m telling any secrets here when I say my name’s Stephen,” Colbert said on Friday’s Late Show. “And with so many Stephens in the Trump administration, this is a rough time for the Stephen community.”

But take heart, Steves of the world. Whenever you’re feeling down, just close your eyes and think of Stephen King.

Meryl Streep‘s acceptance speech at the Golden Globes has riled up a bunch of folks—everyone from Donald Trump to Stephen Colbert.

During his opening Late Show monologue, Colbert roasted the president-elect’s tweet response to the moving address Streep gave on Sunday night. 

“Look Mr. Trump, you can refuse to release your taxes, you can call to ban an entire religion, you can play footsie with a dictator, but calling Meryl Streep overrated? No, no. Too far,” Colbert exclaimed. 

“I wasn’t going to go to that Million Woman March but I’m going now. It’s going to be a Million Meryl March—I’ll be the one holding blu-ray of Kramer vs Kramer and weeping,” he said, before launching into Russian’s involvement with the United States election.  Read more…
