On Global‘s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Wednesday night, the host was doing his usual round of Donald Trump-Vladimir Putin jokes when he got a very special visitor.

Dolph Lundgren, in character as boxer Ivan Drago from the “Rocky” series, appeared behind him to deliver a message about Russian stereotypes.

“Americans think we’re cold and harsh. Is false impression that I will… crush,” he said in a thick Russian accent.

He also said there’s no need for America and Russia to be clashing, “except in ‘Creed II’, in theatres everywhere next week,” Lundgren said dropping the accent.

Back in character, Lundgren as Drago talked about his history with Donald Trump.

“Back in ’80s, we go to same parties and hung out with Mike Tyson,” he said. “I really thought Mike had better chance at becoming president.”
