Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert are two of the most popular hosts in late night. So it’s no surprise that when these guys get together, TV magic happens.
The Colbert Report host stopped by Fallon’s Tonight Show on Friday to promote his new movie, Mr. Peabody and Sherman (Colbert voices the character Paul Peterson).
