Stephen Colbert is Obsessed With Captain America
America’s most patriotic newsman and late night host, Stephen Colbert‘s interests tend to run quite firmly to the red, white, and blue, so it should come as little surprise that the funny man is obsessed with Marvel’s own Captain America. But he’s not just run-of-the-mill, “oh, I like comic books” obsessed — he’s obsessed enough to land his very own Captain America cover, which he shared with ‘Late Night‘ host Seth Meyers last night.
When Cap’s trusty sidekick Falcon moves up to play Captain America later this year, he’ll need his very own trusty sidekick: enter a comic book version of Colbert as Falcon, complete with waxed chest and flashy wings. Is Colbert excited about this turn of events? That would be a pretty big understatement. This might be the best thing to ever happen to Colbert — and he gets to host the ‘Late Show’ soon.
