Stephen Colbert's alter egomaniac on The Colbert Report may be a hawk, but the real Colbert is a peace-loving guy, at least when it comes to the late-night battlefield. We caught up with the Comedy Central cutup — in a rare interview out of character — at the opening-night gala for the Montclair Film Festival in his adopted home state of New Jersey (his wife Evelyn is one of the fest's organizers).
