Late Show: David Duchovny, Stephen Colbert cozy up in blanket fort sketch

Posted on

David Duchovny went down the same rabbit hole the likes of which Lily Tomlin and Will Arnett traversed. That, of course, is Stephen Colbert’s Late Show blanket fort. 

Duchovny and Colbert returned to simpler times, a childlike state in this sketch that sees them acting like, well, children. The X-Files star scared his host with a spooky flashlight before recalling his first time seeing a bra. “My mom took me to J.C. Penney and they were on the lady mannequins. It made me scared and excited,” he said. 

But it must not have scared him too much — Duchovny played an alcoholic sex addict in the Showtime series Californication. Not what you’d call kid-appropriate banter.
