i love me some cillian murphy but i haven't even seen the colbert interview because just the gifs made me Uncomfortable lmao why is he such an awkward lil bean
Here ya go!
Not Cillian’s fault. He can be talkative and charming and hilarious if asked the right questions by the right host (e.g., Late Late Show w/ Ryan Tubridy, Craig Ferguson). Stephen Colbert was unprepared and relegated Cillian to 5 minutes at the very end of a painfully bad show.
Did Colbert even know who Cillian was before he met him? How do you talk to him about a Nolan movie and not ask about their relationship/auditioning for Batman/bag on head? So much opportunity for comedy. Basically Colbert fired off yes/no questions, particularly inane ones about Irish stereotypes. Then a history lesson at the end. There’s not much that a guest can do with that.
Hope this doesn’t turn him off talk shows for life.
