Today at Gawker.TV, Stephen Colbert has his Olympic interview with Bob Costas, Ewan McGregor insults George Stephanopoulos, Abby Elliott and her dad Chris Elliott, a girl redeems herself on a stair-chair, and a Dutch Oympian calls an NBC reporter stupid.
George Stephanopoulos interviewed Ghost Writer's Ewan McGregor on Good Morning America today. After playing a clip from the movie, McGregor joked that political memoirs, on a scale of boring from 1-10, would be a 10. Stephanopoulos—sadly—disagrees.
Bob Costas couldn't keep up with Stephen Colbert last night. On his game as always, Colbert decided to literally crawl inside of NBC's fireplace to warm his chilled bones. Except for the fact that the fireplace, of course, was fake.
