Stephen Colbert News, Pictures, and Videos
Stephen Colbert takes a little nap before saying goodbye one last time during the series finale of The Colbert Report on Thursday evening (December 19).
The 50-year-old television host left his show at Comedy Central to host The Late Show when David Letterman leaves in May.
Stephen didn’t do his final show alone, though, he was joined by a bunch of celebrity guests including James Franco, Bryan Cranston, Bill Clinton, Pharrell, Willie Nelson, Elijah Wood, J.J. Abrams, Tim Meadows, and even Jeopardy host Alex Trebek.
Watch his last goodbye below!
Stephen’s Epic Sign Off
The 50-year-old talk show host wore Bilbo, Legolas, and Gandalf costumes for the covers – if you didn’t know, Stephen is a huge super fan of the J.R.R. Tolkien series.
“Tolkien’s work has been a lifelong haven for me—truly a light in dark places when all other lights went out,” Stephen wrote in an excerpt for the mag. “For an awkward teenager, Middle-earth was a world I could escape to. Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth also gave me a world to escape to, but by the time his films came out, I was rich and famous and didn’t really want to escape my life anymore. Still, great movies.”
In fact, Stephen has schooled James Franco on his talk show The Colbert Report on Tolkien knowledge – watch below!
