Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell Sang a Duet, Like Two Old Pals in Love

Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell are old pals from their Second City days, and their fondness for each other runs deep. So deep that even a routine press stop for Carell on the Late Show can’t be done without turning into a full-on lovefest. It starts, like all great romances, with some flattery: “People still don’t know you’re a great singer,” Colbert gushes. “Well, that’s not really true,” Carell melts. They quickly take the relationship to the next level, consummating their love with a cover of the Orleans’s “Dance With Me” beneath the disco-ball lights. The message is clear: “I want to be your partner, can’t you see?” Oh we see, boys. We see.
