Pretty easy to spot those who felt betrayed when they finally figured out Colbert isn't a conservative.

Apos: devilEther: Apos: slotz: Apos: Keaton's best role since As Good As It Gets and it's not Oscar-eligible. :(

Um, yeah, she wasn't in that movie.

Could have sworn she was in a geriatric-esque rom-com with "as good" in the title a decade ago. No matter....This is her most accomplished role yet.

perhaps you're thinking of "Something's Gotta Give" which also featured Jack Nicholson.

That's the one.


In the interview she was doing a scene from "Something's Gotta Give As Good As It Gets."

Actual Farking: Quasar: Is this one of those Richard Branson things that's going to be incredibly uncomfortable to watch?

It wasn't that bad, but she obviously wanted to bang Colbert and could hardly restrain herself.


The housemate thought she was drunk, and he loves Diane Keaton. I thought it was the girl version of pulling on pigtails. Yeah, I thought she was really, really turned on to him, too.

Who has more to lose from being a douchebag in that interview, Diane Keaton, or Stephen Colbert?

My point exactly, moving on.
 
2012-05-02 07:47:10 PM  
This was one of his best interviews. Colbert showed how quick he was, too, with the line about her mother and "just tell us one farking thing about the book." That's why his interviews rock, he's the quickest wit in the west, and can even deal with slightly addled actresses trying to throw off his game.

snowjack: Do you think third-grade recess should have it's own time slot on Comedy Central?


I don't know about "should", but it does, it's called The Colbert Report.
Check it out, you might like it.

I never claimed it was awesome how she did it, but she did use typical Colbert tactics to throw the conversation into the ridiculous. He's almost never serious business, why should his guests be? Because that's the status quo? Someone's pissy...and it's not Colbert, Keaton, me, or any other rational fan...

It's funny that fanbois can ruin such a thread. Somewhere there is a comic/star trek/Apple thread missing it's smug.

Pfffft. I do see a typo in there, but whatever. Colbert's schtick, since he was on the Daily Show, was to ask ridiculous questions and provoke the person he's interviewing, he's a professional de-railer. Deny it all you want, it's your right to be a willfully obtuse zealot if you choose to be.

Not sure Stephen is into that kind of white knighting. I would imagine he finds it as creepy as I do. I do like the guy, he can be genuinely entertaining. I'm not denigrating him, not even saying he was pwned, but he was kept on his toes by an older woman. Drunk, high, whatever, doesn't matter. I thought it was cool to see, that's all.

You sure are a touchy lot of white knights.

Colbert was off for the whole show, even before the interview. I wondered if there was some backstage drama, or some weird thing happening. His timing and concentration were off the whole time, though he soldiered through it bravely.

Then the interview came and just made it weirder.

What do you mean by that? I mean, a phrase like that is worse than attempting to cleverly communicate solely by linking lolcats. Seriously, what is that supposed to mean? Do I win if I post "zoom!"? What kind of game do you mistakenly think you're winning here? Can you even speak english? If you're too lazy to type out a phrase or two, why do you bother posting? Seriously, at least the lolcat had a full concept to it, a functional sentence conveying an actual idea.

xnmw: museamused: Why do I hate her beyond all reason? I don't know. But I cannot stand the sight of her.

I do too...and I don't really know why


It because she reminds you of those self indulged socialites that hear a discussion on NPR earlier in the week then pretend to be experts themselves as the drop the topic into a conversation with you.

Picture her and a few people like her sitting around drinking expensive wine complaining about the downtrodden in africa and talking about how someone really needs to do something about it.

Imagine you are a waiter at a restaurant or a checker at the store, she is the woman who looks at you like you are beneath her or her servant and can't indulge in a polite "thank you" and instead keeps yammering on her friends about some topic she learned about from NPR.

self-indulged and dismissive.

/Not saying she is like that, just that is the person who she reminds you of.

this is why I like Colbert. If the guest is also witty and willing to indulge in some absurdity/bullshiatting type discussion it can be great. It seems the 'nerds/smart' people he has on get this and can play along and can get a funny smartass response off once and a while.

If the guest is an ideological idiot/zealot, it is fun to see stephen insult them where they don't even seem to know it or rattle them with questions a 3 year old would ask about the ridiculous idea the guest is pushing.

Then there are his normal interviews which are on par with other show's normal interviews.

/When he is on fire it is gold.

This. Despite what people acuse me of above and jumping to defend SC, I love his show, and his tactics which you mention.

I have to contest that last part though, his normal interviews are so rare as to be nonexistant. Or rather, even in his "normal" one's, he slips in a lot of the ridiculous even if it's mocking himself and not the guest. Never seen a 100% serious interview by SC, he always brings some levity to the table.

Well since you bit and he didn't...
What joke? I was told to stop posting. There was a joke there? Sure, it's amusing that it's fashioned as an intervention, but it's not much of a joke, especially when it was my Boobies in the thread. Who sets up an intervention for a supposed "alcoholic" on their first beer ever? WTF is that? That's only asking for further posts in all reality.

What's more, is..... when was the joke command to stop posting on fark EVER heeded? Here's one, DIAF. Go ahead, prove me wrong and go do just that.

It's like delivering a punchline without a set-up. "So the priest says, 'No, son, I meant the prayer' " and acting surprised when there's just crickets, then the creepy guy in the corner(Nate) starts braying like a donkey until he wets his shorts.....

No, it makes no sense. It's not that I missed anything, it's that there was nothing there to begin with, and why, in context, my post rebuking it as a simple white knight was deserved.

Yea, by normal I didn't mean a straight, standard interview, just ones where the guest doesn't quite play along but doesn't deserve to be made a fool of, where like you mention, Stephen mocks himself or asks a smartass question followed quickly by "moving on..."

No, for me I'm pretty sure it's because I'd only known her as Kay from The Godfather for a long time, the only character in the film I really can't stand, and I'm pretty sure that tainted her for me forever.

Although that interview may have started turning my opinion around.

omeganuepsilon: evilmrsock: The interview was funny as shiat. My wife and I were flailing on the couch in hysterics. It's so rare for Colbert to not be in charge of the interview, and she just came out swingin' and owned it the whole way through. Colbert tries to grab the reigns with the "bravery" bit and then slowly loses his grip over the rest of it. It was fantastic.

This. She out Colbert'd Colbert.

Yeah, Colbert was so fooled. He should just hang up his suit and not appear in public anymore after he was so fooled by Keaton. I don't know how he even lives with himself. Surely the whole thing wasn't a gag interview but a vicious haranguing of Colbert. For shame.

The one's that deserve it. I really don't get how these people can believe they'll go on the show and get a chance to be taken seriously. Ignorance is entirely all on them at that point, and why I have no qualms about enjoying it. Especially when the fool can man up and take it with a genuine smile and a handshake(I stress genuine smile here, though it's hilarious when they're not genuine and really angry), and maybe come back to the show again. Yes, I can respect people with stupid ideals or whatever, if they can present them with some degree of honor/humility, restores some of my faith in humanity.

However:
I disliked SC when he did the interviews for Daily Show. "Oh, a reporter wants to interview me? OK, show him in." Surprise chaos ensues. Sure, it's nice to see people get their dues, but at the same time, it's a bit of a dirty trick. Made SC come off as a sadist, or vulture.

Glad he got his own show. I don't catch it often any more, but I never dislike it.
 
2012-05-02 11:08:12 PM  
Colbert lost control of his interview, and Jon Stewart gave air time (and a veneer of legitimacy) to a fundie-Christian historical revisionist (who invents historical quotes to prove his point) pimping his new book on Thomas Jefferson.

Uncle Pooky: The best Colbert interview ever is when he had some religious scholar on, and then completely decimated the guys point with actual Catholic teachings. The guy could only shoot back with "well, you obviously paid attention in Sunday School."

To which Colbert immediately fired back, "I teach Sunday School, motherf**ker!"

Greatest comeback I've ever seen.

lol, yeah, she totally lost it towards the end(reminded me of an insanely nervous /giddy teenager), but he was a little frayed. I've never seen anyone push him like that(then again I do miss the show quite a bit, Robin Williams ever been on? that could be fun).

Some of the people talked about above, the zealot types that deserve it, try to talk over him but it really doesn't work. If they're adamant he backs off, lets them speak, then ignores the shiat out of the comment and asks them something else, typically ridiculous.

Diane Keaton : Colbert Interview :: omeganuepsilon : this thread
 
2012-05-03 08:15:08 AM  
Look, when Colbert is going to interview a guest... before the interview he briefs the guest that he is going to act like the biggest jerk in the entire world.

Keaton was obviously on something (a little -- personally I think she was mildly stoned) and determined that she would totally play along and treat him like he was a despicable person (nudge, nudge).

But the problem was she's not NEARLY as good at improve as Colbert (not many are) and couldn't handle his responses (which were, of course, hilarious) -- the result you see.

And yes, she is obviously VERY fond of him (in a Jane Fonda kinda way)
