Daniel Craig Confirms He Will Return One More Time To Play James Bond


Daniel Craig James Bond Stephen Colbert

Daniel Craig has finally ended more than a year over speculation over his future in the James Bond role, confirming this week that he will return to play 007 for the last time in the next movie.

The English actor famously said, ahead of the release of Spectre back in 2015, that he would sooner “slit his wrists” than play Bond again. However, he may now live to regret those words, after he confirmed to Stephen Colbert on US chat show ‘The Late Show’ on Tuesday night (August 15th) that he would be reprising the role one last time when the 25th movie is released in two years’ time.

“I have been quite cagey about it,” Craig admitted to Colbert. “I have been doing interviews all day and people have been asking me and I think I’ve been rather coy. But kind of felt like if I was going to speak the truth I should speak truth to you.”

Stephen Colbert Launching New Animated Series About Donald Trump's Presidency


Stephen Colbert Donald Trump

Continuing his long-standing tradition of political satire, chat show host Stephen Colbert has announced the launch of a new animated series about President Donald Trump and his White House administration for Showtime.

The network announced on Thursday evening (July 27th) that it had snapped up a series of 10 of a half-hour show to be produced by ‘The Late Show’ host Colbert. It currently doesn’t have a title, but early speculation indicates it might share a similar concept to ‘South Park’, where contemporary news stories are turned around very quickly to make episodes play off them.

“I know a lot of people wanted to do this, and I’m honoured that the Cartoon President invited our documentary crew into his private world,” 53 year old Colbert said in a statement. “I’ve seen some of the footage, and I look forward to sharing the man behind the MAGA.”

Watch Andy Serkis Read Donald Trump's Tweets As Gollum On 'The Late Show'


Andy Serkis Donald Trump Stephen Colbert

Lord of the Rings fans were treated to the spectacle of actor Andy Serkis reading out Donald Trump’s tweets as his character Gollum, when they tuned in to Stephen Colbert’s show this week.

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 And Paul Simon Are 'Feelin' Groovy' About World War 3


Stephen Colbert Paul Simon

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 Late Show' host used the opportunity of a singalong with Paul Simon to take yet more digs at President Donald Trump, by insisting the musician play 'The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)' from Simon & Garfunkel's 1966 album 'Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme'.

Star Wars Day: Stephen Colbert Badly Explains The Film Series And It's Hilarious


Star Wars Stephen Colbert

Happy Star Wars Day one and all and, of course, May the fourth be with you. While fans eagerly get down to a serious movie marathon though, everyone else is wondering what on earth is so special about this day. Allow Stephen Colbert to explain.

'The Late Show' host gave a one minute long summary of the original 'Star Wars' movies today (May 4th 2017), referencing Luke Skywalker as a 'simple farm boy' and Darth Vader as 'a handicapped man who needs a full-body respirator just to stay alive'. What makes it all the more funny is that you can't really deny the accuracy in spite of the ridiculous brevity.

Stephen Colbert Emmy Awards

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.

This will mark a first for 'The Late Show' host, who has previously hosted events such as the 39th Annual Kennedy Center Honors. As the recipient of no less than nine Primetime Emmys himself for 'The Colbert Report' and 'The Daily Show', Stephen is no doubt familiar with the set-up - and it seems we can expect a lot of anti-Trump jokes at the Fall event.
