American Psycho musical: Ben Walker performs shirtless on Colbert's The Late Show

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

In addition to his shenanigans with Steve Buscemi, host Stephen Colbert welcomed Benjamin Walker and the cast of American Psycho: The Musical to perform the show’s opening number on Friday’s episode of The Late Show.

Walker has shed his Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter skin, and his new role is far more shirtless and ripped. Accompanied by back-up singers and dancers, the actor flaunted his “utterly insane” abs of steel in performing “Selling Out.” 

“Just had one of the greatest experiences of my career with the amazing cast of [American Psycho: The Musical],” Walker wrote on Instagram. “An honor and a privilege.”

Elsewhere, Walker bonded with Colbert over what the host calls “stealth Southernism.” One of the Georgia-born actor’s favorite phrases is “mom a’nim,” as in, “Say hi to your family, but it also incorporates inbreeding and lifestyle.”
