Stephen Colbert and wife Evelyn
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).
Stephen Colbert, Alan Cumming
Our best moments of the week:
12. What's in a Name? Award: Is the world big enough for two famous Adam Scotts? After Adam Scott the golfer won the Masters, Adam Scott the actor was predictably inundated with jokes. And he's sick of it. "The jokes were really lame," the Parks and Recreation star vents on Conan. "'I can't believe anyone could mix up the two Adam Scotts. They're "Poehler" opposites.' 'Hey Adam, you know what's way below par? Your acting.' ... I mean this with nothing but love in my heart, but, please, can everybody shut the hell up?"

Stephen Colbert delivered a meaningful, but humorous monologue about Monday's Boston Marathon bombings at the start of the Tuesday night edition of Colbert Report.
"Whoever did this obviously did not know sh-- about the people of Boston," he began. "'Cause nothing these terrorists do is gonna shake them. For Pete's sake, Boston was founded by the pilgrims, a people so tough they had to buckle their goddamn hats on!"
Stephen Colbert and Bill Clinton
Times have sure changed since Bill Clinton was inaugurated in 1993. While the former president has embraced some aspects of social media, he has avoided Twitter. That is, until appearing on Monday's episode of The Colbert Report.
Jeremy Irons says that he doesn't have "strong" feelings about gay marriage, but the actor does have some controversial and bizarre thoughts.
Who are the funniest people? That's the question Rolling Stone answers in its list of the 50 funniest people around now. From actors to comedians, Twitterers, TV hosts and more, the list was compiled based on the funniest people who are currently active.
Coming in at No. 1 is...
Comedian Stephen Colbert's sister Elizabeth Colbert-Busch will run for Congress in South Carolina, St. Andrews Patch reports.
Democrat Colbert-Busch will seek to take the longtime-Republican First Congressional District, formerly represented by Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.).
