Last Night on Late Night: Mandy Patinkin Gave Stephen Colbert a Verbal Lashing

Last night on The Colbert Report, things got really heated once Stephen Colbert’s conservative digs pushed Mandy Patinkin right over the ledge of composure. Neck vein bulging, voice crescendoing, Patinkin unleashed the fury of Homeland’s Saul Berenson upon a stunned Colbert. “Are you not responsible at all for anything that goes on in the world?” he charged over the two sides of terrorism. Needless to say, there was no Stephen Sondheim duet (damn it). Plus: In awesome Christmas gift-giving, Jimmy Kimmel paid out the original owner of the @JohnKrasinski Twitter handle to its rightful, eponymous owner. Since after all, #yolo. Also, Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville approved of Jimmy Fallon’s Robert Crawley; and Kerry Washington admitted the graphic language and violence of Django Unchained had sent her straight to the therapy chair. “I kept telling Quentin that I was going to send him my extra therapy bills,” she told Jay Leno.
