by Stage Tube - Sep 21, 2015

Last week on LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT, in honor of the release of 'The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes,' Kevin Spacey surprised his idol Carol Burnett with a very special poem. 'There's actually somebody here tonight, and you are his idol,' Colbert told Burnett, 'and it's the actor Kevin Spacey, and he would like to come out and say hi.' The HOUSE OF CARDS star then appeared and read the poem in his best Jimmy Stewart impersonation, which brought Ms. Burnett to tears. CLICK HERE to watch the appearance. If you liked Spacey's uncanny impression of Stewart, you'll love some of his others. Click below to watch him take on Bill Clinton, Chrsitopher Walken, Johnny Carson and many more! (more...)
