Oprah and Stephen Colbert, Two Equally Influential TV Icons, Finally Have a Chat


Stephen Colbert dropped by Oprah’s show Oprah’s Next Chapter, and the two iconic TV personalities finally faced off in what was a rare out-of-character interview for Colbert. The full chat, which is available in bits and pieces on Oprah’s website, covers Colbert’s career arc, the tragic loss of his father and brothers in a plane crash when he was a child, and his loving relationship with his wife. Throughout the whole thing, Oprah seems pretty obsessed with the fact that Stephen Colbert plays a fictional character on TV also named Stephen Colbert, even though she’s been playing the fictional character of “Oprah Winfrey” on TV for nearly 30 years now.
