First, they began talking about Serkis and the films he’s been in, including Lord of the Rings and Planet of the Apes, and we even learned all the secrets behind the filming. You’ll see a behind the scenes clip of Serkis from Planet of the Apes, where you’ll see how they transformed him into an ape.
Around the 4 minute mark is when things get interesting. Colbert got Serkis to read Donald Trump’s tweets in his Gollum voice and let me tell you: it’s hysterical. Not only does he do the voice, but he fully channels his inner Gollum physically as well.
He only reads 2 tweets, but it’s worth the watch, I promise. I’m going to have to agree with Colbert when he says, “they actually sound better that way.”
The rest of the interview is about the new movie in the Apes series, War for the Planet of the Apes, so don’t stop after the Trump tweets readings if you’re interested in all that!
