Stephen Colbert on the new Rolling Stone cover

colbertHere's just the thing for "Colbert Report" fans who are counting the days until the program's long summer break finally ends (Sept. 14, for the record). Rolling Stone's new issue (dated Sept. 17) will feature Stephen Colbert on the cover -- dressed as a homeless guy. A tip of the hat (never a wag of the finger) to obsessive Colbert fan site No Fact Zone for the news.

The magazine's web site has some outtakes from Colbert's interview with writer Neil Strauss, who is no stranger to the world of late night TV host profiles; he interviewed Jay Leno for Rolling Stone earlier this year. One interesting tidbit: Colbert doesn't read any of the books that his guests are plugging. "I read the first chapter of the first book of the first guest I ever had on, which was Buzz Bissinger's Three Nights in August or something like that," he said. "And it's the last thing I've read... I don't have time."

Another special web site feature, "Before the Report," features a variety of YouTube clips of Stephen's appearances on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and other shows.

    Colbert is GREAT in the "Strangers With Candy" movie and his appearance on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is freakin hilarious too. He can act pretty well for someone who doesnt do it that often.
