After watching him play President Reagan on Fargo this season, it became clear that Bruce Campbell could pull of the strong conservative type. Yet it never clicked that he could also be Stephen Colbert’s double until Tuesday’s Late Show.
Thanks to some prodding from his Ash vs. Evil Dead co-star Lucy Lawless, Campbell donned his glasses, and switched spots with Colbert. Okay, sure, he resembles our host, but what about his pen-holding mannerisms?
Oh… that is pretty good. Now sure, he could improve on the part where he has to use words, but if something ever happens to Colbert, CBS might have another option available. And who knows, maybe Colbert would be just as good at handling Campbell’s hand accessories.
