Serkis was 'Lord of the Rings' super-fan Stephen Colbert's guest on 'The Late Show' on Tuesday.
The 53 year old English actor, whose work in the field of motion-capture technology is legendary and who used it to portray Smeagol / Gollum, stopped by ‘The Late Show’ on Tuesday night (July 11th) to discuss his new project, War For the Planet of the Apes.
However, as Colbert is wont to do, discussion inevitably turned to the president Donald Trump. A regular feature of late night shows, particularly Jimmy Kimmel’s, is reading out mean tweets, so Colbert launched his own variant of this and asked his guest if he would reprise his memorable character of Gollum in order to read out some of Trump’s infamous tweets.

Stephen Colbert joined the one and only Paul Simon for a jam session with a difference this week, putting a rather depressing twist on the folk singer's not often heard 1966 tune 'The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)'. No wonder Paul hates this one.

The dreaded rise of Donald Trump has been a career blessing for at least one person: Hollywood star Alec Baldwin, who has grabbed headlines for his impersonations of the divisive president for the last several months on ‘Saturday Night Live’.

Let's hope the ratings get a boost.
Stephen Colbert is set to host the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards this year at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, having been praised for his 'fearless passion' when it comes to live broadcasts. And it seems he isn't going to be holding back with the presidency jokes either.
Stephen Colbert to host the Primetime Emmys
This will mark a first for 'The Late Show' host, who has previously hosted events such as the 39th Annual Kennedy Center Honors.

Kaling appeared on 'The Late Show' and told Stephen Colbert she was concerned her 'Ocean's Eight' character might be picked off early on in the movie.
Mindy Kaling has admitted that she’s “scared” by her upcoming role in Ocean’s Eight, the all-female reboot movie of the Ocean’s Eleven franchise, because of the list of extremely high-profile names she’s starring alongside.
‘The Mindy Project’ star and creator was speaking to Stephen Colbert on ‘The Late Show’ on Tuesday night (October 4th).
She said that, although the project starts shooting in just two weeks’ time, she has no idea about the kind of character she’ll be playing – and joked that her comparatively low profile compared to the A-list stars on the movie like Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter, Awkwafina, Cate Blanchett and Anne Hathaway means her character will probably get picked off early on!

He seems much more believable than the real deal.
Stephen Colbert has outlined the ridiculousness of Donald Trump by turning him into a cartoon - who actually seems to make a lot more sense than Trump himself. After inviting the animated version of the Republican candidate on the show a week ago, Colbert has brought him back to discuss his apparent lack of numerical understanding.
Donald Trump is a parody of himself
Ahead of the Wisconsin Primary, 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert' presenter was quick to re-assure us that poll numbers were dropping for Trump, with 30% of people being Trump supporters and 70% being very much anti-Trump. We're hardly surprised either, what with him repeatedly resorting to absurd 'cartoon tactics', as Colbert put it, to get voters.
