Look, Tom Hanks doesn't really need to work these days.

He's done plenty in the last 30 years to bring America charm and delight in a big, friendly package.
Even though it it looks like he's got some movies coming down the pike he hasn't acted in one since 2013's Saving Mr. Banks.

So, he's got time on his hands.

This was evidenced by his unexpected appearance answering questions all over Reddit earlier this week.

Well, apparently, he had some more questions that he wanted answers.

Stephen Colbert is in a different, though still not less-inquisitive, boat.

After months of build up, his show is finally chugging along at a steady clip and he's probably starting to get into the routine of the whole affair.

Focused so intently on the goal, once its accomplished, he's probably feeling a jet lag of emotions rushing at him, calling into question where he is and what he's doing.

So the two decided to lay back on a blanket and ask those questions to themselves.

It's very funny.

After launching his new show with a bevy of jokes on Donald Trump, Stephen Colbert decided it would be a nice idea to invite the GOP front running candidate for the presidency on The Late Show.

So, Sept. 22, it happened.

It certainly wasn't the best interview Colbert has had on his show so far, that honor goes to the the emotional chat with Vice President Joe Biden. But still it was a civilized conversation in which Trump still would not say whether President Obama was born in America.

Then they played a little game:

All in all, a solid night at The Late Show.

Stephen Colbert invites you to join him in his one of a kind type of life to give him some money.

In the wake of celebrity lifestyle brands like Reese Witherspoon's Draper James, Ellen DeGeneres' ED and Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop, Colbert felt left out.

In the past he has invited you to step in his shoes, but this time he seems more concerned with just taking your money.

So he launched Covetton House, a place where you can buy a tie rack, a coaster or a bed bug-ridden curb couch.

And real, bison-made leather goods.

"Mmm... parmesan absinthe."

Hip hop duo Run the Jewels is having a pretty baller week.

First, they had an incredible appearance, backed by TV on the Radio, on Late Night with Stephen Colbert. It's seriously great.

Then, RTJ released the second track on their upcoming Kickstarted remix album Meow the Jewels. This was the project taking their critically lauded 2014 album Run the Jewels 2 and remixing the music to be made entirely from cat sounds.

Like Jingle Cats, except, actually, really, super good.

Explicit lyrics, yo.

Here's the original:

Then, they announced a lot of new projects in the same vein.

Like we said, it's been a great week for a great group.

Earlier today, Vanity Fair tweeted out a promotion for their big story on what's so good about current late night programming.

You may notice it's a real sausage fest in there.

To be fair, Vanity Fair did mention the lack of gender diversity in their story:

What's conspicuously missing from late-night, still, is women. How gobsmackingly insane is it that no TV network has had the common sense—and that's all we're talking about in 2015, not courage, bravery, or even decency—to hand over the reins of an existing late-night comedy program to a female person?

And they did mention comedienne Samantha Bee's upcoming TBS late night talk show. She, however, decided to respond directly to the tweet, imagining herself in the picture with the rest of her peers.

And then followed up with the kicker:

Really, a Samantha Bee centaur shooting lasers out of her eyes says it all.

Joe Biden has many facets. He's America's uncle. He's a brazenly honest person. And he's also someone who has had a lot of tragedy befall him.

As rumors continue to swirl about a possible Biden presidential run, he came by The Late Show to talk to Stephen Colbert about many things.

What came next was a very candid and heartfelt talk about the recent loss of the Vice President's son Beau and the death of his first wife and daughter years ago. The talk was even more heightened when Biden compared his experience to Colbert's, who suffered his own harrowing childhood tragedy.

It's a really touching talk and one that casts and incredibly human light on the office of Vice President and Biden himself.

Here's part two of the interview:

And if you need a light hearted refresher after all the heavy talk, here's that picture of him giving a shoulder rub:

After months of teasing and weird stunts Stephen Colbert finally hosted his first Late Show Sept. 8.

George Clooney, Jeb Bush and Stay Human came on the show as guests and helped introduce America to the next contender for late night/viral video ratings.
