Andy Serkis Reads Donald Trump’s Tweets As Gollum

Stephen Colbert invited his “precious” Andy Serkis on “The Late Show” Tuesday night.

The “War for the Planet of the Apes” star channeled his “Lord of the Rings” character, Gollum, for a dramatic reading of U.S. President Donald Trump’s tweets.

Serkis hopped into a crouched position on his chair and dived into his Lord of the Rings character to read for the audience.

Serkis then read Trump’s “covfefe” tweet from May 31.

After reading the tweet, Serkis asked Colbert, “Wait! What’s covfefe precious?”

“No one knows,” Colbert responded.

“I got to say, they actually sound better that way,” Colbert noted of Serkis’ performance.
