Stephen Colbert

Entertainment Weekly named The Colbert Report’s Stephen Colbert as one of its Entertainers of the Year, and rightly so. Everything he touches turns to funny. Here’s an excerpt of the interview.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congrats on being named one of EW’s Entertainers of the Year.
STEPHEN COLBERT: I’m honored. Not surprised. I don’t want anyone to think that this comes as a shock to me.

SC:I set out to change the world — not a lot, just by tiny degrees — and grab the wheel of this nation and turn the great ship of our national destiny.

(You were) Named one of People’s Sexiest Men Alive.
SC:I get it, you know? I’m not going to argue with them — I just hope that when the people who did not consider me one of the Sexiest Men Alive see that, they can admit they’re wrong. I’ve got some old girlfriends I sent several copies to, because I’m sure the first ones will get tear-stained.

So, really, 2006 couldn’t have gotten any better for Stephen Colbert. Are you not America’s sweetheart?

SC: I think I might be the new Meg Ryan… All I ask is for the world to understand that I’m going to expect more from them next year. I’m a love junkie. Keep it coming.

What are your goals for 2007?
SC: The world hasn’t changed as much as I like. The world and I had an agreement: I would come on, and it would be fixed. But the world dropped the ball on this one… I’d like to see my wife and kids more. Maybe put on five pounds of muscle. I’d like to bulk up. Get ripped. Jacked up. I’m doing a lot of protein shakes.
