Michele Bachmann shares an explosive holiday wish with President Obama, Stephen argues with Stephen about torture, hackers attack Sony, and Seth Rogen talks "The Interview."

>> Stephen: TONIGHT, ISAMERICA GUILTY OF TORTURE?

NO, WE SEEM FINE WITH IT.

THEN HACKERS EXPOSE HOLLYWOODSECRETS.

IT TURNS OUT APOLLO 13 TOOKPLACE ON A SOUND STAGE!

AND MY GUEST, SETH ROGEN, STARSWITH JAMES FRANCO IN THE NEW

MOVIE "THE INTERVIEW".

I'LL ASK HIM ABOUT IT IN THE"THE INTERVIEW" INTERVIEW.

A NEW YORK HIGH SCHOOLER MADE$72 MILLION TRADING STOCKS ON

HIS LUNCH HOUR.

IN A COUPLE MORE YEARS, HE'LL BEABLE TO PAY FOR COLLEGE.

THIS IS "THE COLBERT REPORT"!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)♪♪

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: WELCOME TO "THEREPORT," LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US!

(AUDIENCE CHANTING "STEPHEN")THANK YOU SO MUCH, FOLKS!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEINGHERE!

WHAT A JOY!

WHAT A PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOUTONIGHT, FOLKS!

(CHEERING)YOU KNOW, I LOVE BEING WITH YOU.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IF YOU'VEBEEN PAYING ATTENTION TO THE

NEWS LATELY, FOLKS, IF YOU WATCHTHE NEWS, YOU KNOW THAT THIS

IS --(CHEERING)

-- FOLKS, THIS IS MY LAST WEEKHERE AT "THE REPORT."

(AWWWWW)I'M SORRY.

DID NO ONE TELL YOU?

BUT FOLKS, I'M NOT THE ONLY ONESTEPPING DOWN FROM THE NATIONAL

SPOTLIGHT.

SO IS MINNESOTA CONGRESSWOMANAND WAX FIGURE OF MICHELE

BACHMANN, MICHELE BACHMANN.

MICHELE HAS DECIDED NOT TO SEEKA FIFTH TERM, OPTING INSTEAD TO

STAY HOME AND CATCH UP ON HERBLINKING.

BUT I GOTTA TELL YOU FOLKS, I AMGLAD TO KNOW THAT

BACHMANN IS NOT GOINGQUIETLY.

LAST WEEK, AS SHE AND HER FAMILYPOSED FOR A PICTURE AT THE WHITE

HOUSE HOLIDAY PARTY, BACHMANNTURNED TO PRESIDENT OBAMA AND

SAID, "MR. PRESIDENT, YOU NEEDTO BOMB THE IRANIAN NUCLEAR

FACILITIES BECAUSE, IF YOUDON'T, IRAN WILL HAVE A NUCLEAR

WEAPON ON YOUR WATCH."

NOW SOME MAY SAY THAT'SINAPPROPRIATE FOR A HOLIDAY

PARTY, BUT FOLKS SHE'SCONSISTANT.

BACHMANN SAYS THE SAME THING ONALL OF HER CHRISTMAS CARDS.

WE'RE WITH YOU MICHELE. WE'REWITH YOU.

BESIDES, HOLIDAY PARTY OR NOT,BACHMANN KNOWS IT'S CRUCIAL TO

KEEP IRAN FROM GETTING A NUCLEARWEAPON.

>> THIS IS THE ULTIMATE INHIGH-STAKES BINGO.

>> Stephen: AND BINGO, OFCOURSE, THE ULTIMATE HIGH-STAKES

GAME.

JUST LOOK HOW THE STRESS AGESTHE PLAYERS.

THAT GIRL IS 17!

AND HOW DID OBAMA RESPOND TO HERSAGE FOREIGN POLICY ADVICE?

ACCORDING TO BACHMANN, THEPRESIDENT "LAUGHED AT ME AND

SAID, 'WELL, MICHELE, IT'S JUSTNOT THAT EASY .'"

(LAUGHTER)I'M NOT SURPRISED THISMAN LAUGHED.

LOOK AT THE PRESIDENT'S REACTIONTO TWO YEARS AGO WHEN I TOLD HIM

HE SHOULD LISTEN TO MICHELEBACHMANN.

(LAUGHTER)GOD SPEED.

GOD SPEED, MICHELE.

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU KEPT UP THATCRAZY CONSERVATIVE CHARACTER FOR

EIGHT YEARS.

THE BIG STORYCONTINUES TO BE THE SENATE

INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE'S TORTUREREPORT.

FOLKS, AMERICA IS A BEACON OFFREEDOM AROUND THE WORLD.

BUT THANKS TO THIS REPORT, NOWBRUTAL REGIMES ARE TALKING

SMACK -- LIKE THIS CRAP FROMCHINA.

"HOW LONG CAN THE U.S. PRETENDTO BE A HUMAN RIGHTS CHAMPION?"

OH, I'D SAY ABOUT AS LONG AS ICAN PRETEND I DON'T KNOW WHO

MADE MY iPhone.

IT'S ELVES, RIGHT?

THESE ARE TROUBLING QUESTIONS,AND IN TROUBLED TIMES, BILL

O'REILLY REMINDS US TO SHUT UPAND LET HIM TALK.

>> THERE ARE SOME FOLKS LIKE MEWHO BELIEVE WE MUST USE HARSH

MEASURES TO DEFEAT THE JIHADISTSWHO WOULD SLAUGHTER US ALL IF

THEY COULD.

THERE ARE OTHERS WHO SAY WE MUSTOBEY THE GENEVA CONVENTION, EVEN

THOUGH WE ARE FIGHTING AN ENEMYTHAT DOES NOT FALL UNDER THAT

TREATY.

THEN THERE IS THE DEFINITION OFTORTURE.

SOME BELIEVE THAT SUBJECTING ACAPTIVE TO LOUD NOISE OR VERBAL

THREATS IS TORTURE.

SO IT'S USELESS TO BEBATE THEISSUE BECAUSE MINDS WILL NOT BE

CHANGED.

>> Stephen: OBVIOUSLY, ADEBATE THAT CANNOT BE DEBATED

BECAUSE MINDS WILL NOT BECHANGED CAN BE DEBATED ONLY BY

THE MOST UNCHANGEABLE MIND.

ME, STEPHEN COLBERT!

THIS IS FORMIDABLE OPPONENT.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)FIRST OF ALL, WELCOME, STEPHEN.

>> GOOD TO BE BACK.

>> Stephen: STEPHEN, I LOOKEDIT UP, AND YOU AND I DEBATED

TORTURING DETAINEES IN THE VERYFIRST MONTH OF THIS SHOW MORE

THAN NINE YEARS AGO.

>> NINE YEARS?

WOW, YOU HAVEN'T AGED A BIT.

>> Stephen: AWWW...

YOU'RE A LIAR.

>> I AM.

YOU LOOK TERRIBLE.

>> Stephen: I KNOW!

'CAUSE I'VE BEEN UP FOR ALMOST AWEEK READING ABOUT HOW WE KEPT

PRISONERS UP FOR ALMOST A WEEK.

YOU LOOK SO WELL-RESTED.

WHAT'S YOUR SECRET?

>> I'LL SHOW YOU.

GIMME THAT.

(CHEERING)NOW YOU WILL SLEEP LIKE A BABY.

>> Stephen: NO, I WON'T!

SOME PARTS OF THAT REPORT AREREALLY DISTURBING!

>> WHICH PARTS?

>> Stephen: THE WORDS.

CHAINING AND BEATING,CONFINEMENT IN COFFIN-SIZED

BOXES, SOMETHING CALLED "RECTALREHYDRATION"?

>> WELL, C'MON, MAN, NO ONELIKES A THIRSTY RECTUM.

>> Stephen: GRANTED.

I JUST DON'T LIKE TO THINK OFAMERICA AS A TORTURE NATION.

>> WE'RE NOT.

WE'RE THE GOOD GUYS.

IT'S JUST THAT, AFTER 9/11, OURFEAR AND ANGER TEMPORARILY

CHANGED US INTO A DIFFERENT GUY.

>> Stephen: OH!

LIKE THE INCREDIBLE HULK?

>> EXACTLY.

DON'T MAKE US ANGRY.

YOU WOULDN'T LIKE US WHEN WE'REANGRY.

BUT NOW WE'RE BACK TO BEINGBRUCE BANNER, SO WE CAN'T BE

HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE HULK'SHARSH INTERROGATION METHODS.

>> Stephen: OR HIS TINY PANTS.

YEAH, AND AS USUAL, BILLO'REILLY PUT IT MOST --

>> LOOK, WE'RE FIGHTING A WAR.

I HAVE A BOOK ON WORLD WAR II,"KILLING PATTON," SO I KNOW WHAT

I'M TALKING ABOUT.

BAD THINGS HAPPEN IN WAR.

THE TRUTH IS MISTAKES WERE MADE,BUT THEY WERE MADE IN THE FOG OF

WAR TO PROTECT AMERICANS.

>> Stephen: I'M GOING TO MISSTHAT GOOD MAN.

>> HE'S NOT GOING OFF THE AIR.

YOU ARE.

>> Stephen: YEAH, BUT NO ONE'SGONNA PAY ME TO WATCH HIM

ANYMORE.

SO (BLEEP) THAT NOISE.

>> YOU HAVE TO ADMIT BILL'SRIGHT.

YOU CAN'T JUDGE WHAT HAPPENS INTHE "FOG OF WAR."

>> Stephen: WHAT FOG?

THIS WASN'T LOW-LEVEL TROOPSMAKING SPLIT-SECOND DECISIONS IN

A FREE-FIRE ZONE.

IT WAS OVER SEVEN YEARS OFLAWYERS AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF

GOVERNMENT WRITING LEGAL BRIEFSABOUT SIMULATED DROWNING...

>> SORRY, STEPHEN.

I CAN'T HEAR WHAT YOU'RE SAYING.

IT'S TOO DAMN "FOG OF WAR" INHERE.

>> Stephen: YOU CAN'T HEAR MEBECAUSE IT'S FOGGY?

>> CAN'T HEAR YOU!

FOGGY!

>> Stephen: YOU'RE HOLDING A(BLEEP) FOG MACHINE!

>> OH, THIS?

I DIDN'T SEE THAT BECAUSE OF THE"FOG OF FOG."

>> Stephen: LOOK, FOG OR NOFOG, WE SAID WE DON'T TORTURE,

AND NOW THE WORLD THINKS WE'RETHE BAD GUYS.

>> THAT'S ONLY BECAUSE PEOPLEKNOW ABOUT IT.

THINK OF IT THIS WAY, EVERYBODYTHINKS YOU'RE A GOOD PERSON,

RIGHT?

>> Stephen: I HOPE SO.

BUT WHAT IF SOMEONE FOUND OUTWHAT HAPPENED "THAT" SUMMER UP

AT MAYFLOWER LAKE?

>> Stephen: WE AGREED WE WOULDNEVER TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED

AT MAYFLOWER LAKE.

>> EXACTLY, BECAUSE WE'RE GOODPEOPLE, AND NOTHING HAPPENED,

BECAUSE IT HAD TO.

>> Stephen: RIGHT.

MR. JENKINS SLIPPED AND HIT HISHEAD ON THAT ROCK TO PROTECT THE

OTHER KIDS.

>> YES, THE ROCK, WHICH ISCONSISTENT WITH BLUNT FORCE

TRAUMA.

>> Stephen: AND WE AGREED ONTHAT STORY AND SEALED IT WITH

THE MAYFLOWER PREP SECRETHANDSHAKE.

>> MAYFLOWER BOYS DO NOT DOMURDER...

>> Stephen: AND WILL NOTDISCUSS IT FURTHER...

>> PA-CHANG!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)POINT IS -- AMERICA DOES NOT

TORTURE.

BUT WE "HAD" TO.

AND WE'LL NEVER DO IT AGAIN,UNLESS IT'S TO PROTECT AMERICA.

>> Stephen: BUT THE REPORTSAYS IT DIDN'T PROTECT AMERICA.

>> OH, I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THEACTUAL COUNTRY.

I'M TALKING ABOUT THE "IDEA" OFAMERICA.

THE "IDEA" OF AMERICA WOULDNEVER TORTURE.

>> Stephen: AND THE ACTUALAMERICA?

>> HAVE YOU READ THAT REPORT?

WE PUMPED HUMMUS UP PEOPLE'SBUTTS.

I'M NO IMAM, BUT I'M PRETTY SURETHAT'S NOT HALAL.

AND THAT, MY FRIEND, IS WHY ICHOSE TO LIVE IN THE "IDEA" OF

AMERICA.

>> Stephen: AH-HA!

BUT THE IDEA OF AMERICA IS JUSTAN IMAGINARY PLACE.

WHICH MEANS YOU, SIR, ARE JUSTAN IMAGINARY STEPHEN COLBERT.

>> AND YOU, SIR...

(FADING AWAY)>> -- HAVE BEEN A FORMIDABLE

OPPONENT!

>> Stephen: WE'LL BE RIGHTBACK.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK

EVERYBODY THANKS SO MUCH. THANKSEVERYBODY.

NATION, THIS MIGHT NOT COME AS ASURPRISE TO ANYBODY OUT THERE

BUT I, I SO DISLIKENORTH KOREAN LEADER KIM JONG-UN

THAT, LET'S JUST SAY, I'M NOTGOING TO NAME MY NEXT CHILD

AFTER THE GUY.

AND EVIDENTLY NEITHER IS ANYONEELSE.

>> THERE IS ONLY ONE KIM JONG-UNIN NORTH KOREA.

THAT'S A LAW.

BY DIRECTIVE OF THE NORTH KOREANREGIME, THE NAME KIM JONG-UN IS

OFF LIMITS TO ANY OTHER CITIZENSOF THE SECRETIVE AND REPRESSIVE

STATE.

BIRTH CERTIFICATES WITH THENAMES KIM JONG-UN ARE REJECTED

AND ANYONE WHO HAPPENS TO SHARETHE SUPREME LEADER'S NAME MUST

CHANGE IT.

>> Stephen: GOTTA DO IT.

WHEN THE AVERAGE NORTH KOREANSEES THE HEADLINE "KIM JONG-UN

INSPECTS LOCAL LUBE FACTORY,"YOU DON'T WANT THEM WONDERING,

"IS THAT KIM JONG-UN, THE FARMERFROM DOWN THE ROAD, OR KIM

JONG-UN THE DICTATOR WHO KILLEDTHAT FARMER FOR HAVING THE SAME

NAME?"POINT IS, YOU DO NOT WANT TO

CROSS THIS GUY.

CONSIDER WHAT'S HAPPENING TOSONY PICTURES OVER THEIR

UPCOMING MOVIE "THE INTERVIEW,"STARRING JAMES FRANCO AND

TONIGHT'S GUEST SETH ROGEN.

(CHEERING)THEY PLAY, THESE GUYS PLAY TVJOURNALISTS

RECRUITED BY THE C.I.A. TOASSASSINATE KIM JONG-UN, I'M

GUESSING BY SMOKING A LOT OF POTAT HIM.

APPARENTLY, OL' SOURPUSS HEREDOESN'T HAVE A GREAT SENSE OF

HUMOR WHEN IT COMES TO HIS OWNASSASSINATION.

>> A HUGE HACK ATTACK ROCKING AMAJOR HOLLYWOOD STUDIO.

WHEN THE TRAILER FOR "THEINTERVIEW" CAME OUT, NORTH KOREA

CALLED THE MOVIE AN ACT OF WAR.

NOW SONY PICTURES, THE STUDIOBEHIND THE FILM, HAS BEEN

HACKED.

>> HACKERS HAVE STOLEN FIVE NEWMOVIES AND LEAKED THEM ON TO THE

INTERNET.

>> EXPERTS SAY SONY WILL LIKELYLOSE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THIS

HOLIDAY SEASON FROM PEOPLEVIEWING ILLEGAL DOWNLOADS OF

THOSE MOVIES ONLINE RATHER THANGOING TO THEATERS.

>> HACKERS WORKING WITHNORTH KOREA COULD BE BEHIND THE

ATTACK.

>> Stephen: YES, SOMEONEHACKED SONY AND ILLEGALLY

DISTRIBUTED MOVIES ON THEINTERNET.

IT HAS TO BE NORTH KOREA.

THE ONLY OTHER PERSON WITH THATCAPABILITY IS A 12-YEAR-OLD WITH

BIT TORRENT.

(LAUGHTER)THE HACKERS ALSO LEAKED

UNRELEASED SCRIPTS, INCLUDINGTHE SCRIPT FOR "MALL COP:

BLART 2 " -- WHAT?!

THAT MOVIE HAS A SCRIPT?!

GREAT.

THEY JUST RUINED THE ENTIREPLOT THEY GAVE AWAY THE ENTIRE

PLOT!LARGE MAN FALLS DOWN!

EH, I'LL STILL SEE IT.

THE HACKERS EVEN LEFT A CALLINGCARD -- "HACKED BY GOP."

WHICH IS ALSO WHAT MITCHMcCONNELL YELLS EVERY TIME HE

SUCCESSFULLY WORKS HISMICROWAVE.

(LAUGHTER)IN THIS CASE, THE G.O.P.

ACTUALLY STANDS FOR GUARDIANS OFPEACE, AND THEY'RE DEMANDING

THAT SONY CANCEL RELEASE OF "THEINTERVIEW."

OR AS THEY POSTED ONLINE, "DOCARRY OUT OUR DEMAND IF YOU WANT

TO ESCAPE US.

AND STOP IMMEDIATELY SHOWING THEMOVIE OF TERRORISM.

YOU, SONY AND F.B.I. CANNOT FINDUS.

WE ARE PERFECT AS MUCH."

YES.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)WHICH IS EITHER A THREAT OR

DIALOGUE FROM THE BLART 2SCRIPT.

(LAUGHTER)FOLKS, THIS WORRIES ME BECAUSE,

OVER THE LAST NINE YEARS, I'VESAID SOME TERRIBLE THINGS THAT

COULD MAKE THIS GUY "UN"-HAPPY.

NATION, I'M NO FAN OF KOREANDICTATOR AND EVIL POTATO KIM

JONG-UN.

THIS PHOTO OF KIM JONG-UN --IT'S HARD TO SAY WHERE THE

MUSHROOMS END AND HIS HAIRCUTBEGINS.

DEAR LEADER KIM JONG-UN HASFINALLY RE-EMERGED IN PUBLIC

AFTER A COURAGEOUS BATTLE WITHSTAGE 5 CHEESE ANKLE.

(LAUGHTER)I STAND BY ALL THAT.

AND I JUST WANT TO SAY TO THEHACKERS TARGETING INNOCENT

AMERICANS -- NORTH KOREA IS THEGREATEST COUNTRY ON THE FACE OF

THE EARTH.

AND KIM JONG-UN.

OH, HE'S PERFECT AS MUCH.

LET SHINE HIS RADIANT GLOW UPONALL HIS CHILDREN, FROM THE

FROZEN STEPPES OF THE NORTH TOTHE FROZEN MUDFLATS OF THE

SOUTH.

ALL OF AMERICA BOWS BEFORE THEGLORIOUS KIM JONG-UN.

TRULY, HE IS AS WISE AS HE HASCHIN.

WHEN WE RETURN, I'LL INTERVIEWTHE LIE-PEDALING FILMMAKER

BEHIND "THE INTERVIEW" --DECADENT CAPITALIST PIG AND

ENEMY OF THE DEMOCRATIC PEOPLE'SREPUBLIC, SETH ROGEN.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)♪♪

>> Stephen: YOU LOOK LIKEYOU'RE READY TO GO TO COURT.

>> I FEEL LIKE I AM.

>> Stephen: ARE YOU ON TRIAL?

AT LEAST THEY LEGALIZEDCARRYING WEED.

>> Stephen: THE WEED IS NOTREALLY THE ISSUE RIGHT NOW.

>> NO, IT'S NOT

>> Stephen: IT'S GOING TOE TOTOE WITH THE NORTH KOREANs IN

THERMONUCLEAR CONFLICT.

(LAUGHTER)>> OKAY.

>> Stephen: LAUGH IT UP. YOU'REACTOR, WRITER, COMEDIAN,

FILMMAKER, MADE SOME OF THEFUNNIEST MOVIES I'VE EVER SEEN.

KNOCKED UP, SUPER BAD, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, THIS IS THE

END.

THE NEW FILM IS CALLED THEINTERVIEW, OPENS ON CHRISTMAS

DAY.

>> YES.

>> Stephen: OKAY.

IT UPSET THE NORTH KOREANS.

>> IT DID.

>> Stephen: OKAY.

DID YOU THINK IT WOULD UPSET THENORTH KOREANS?

>> UH...

>> Stephen: DID YOU PICTURETHEM AS A JOLLY REGIME?

>> HE SEEMS LIKE HE'S GETTING AKICK OUT OF THAT LUBE EVERY TIME

I SEE THAT PICTURE.

>> Stephen: OH, HE LOVES IT

THAT'S HIS FRIEND LUBY.

>> EXACTLY.

WE DID NOT THINK THEY WOULD LOVETHE CONCEPT OF THE MOVIE, TO BE

TOTALLY HONEST, BUT MORE THANANYTHING

WE WANTED TO MAKE A MOVIE THATHAD ONE FOOT IN REALITY

THAT'S SOMETHING WE ASFILMMAKERS LIKE AND THINK

IS INTERESTING ASAUDIENCE MEMBERS AS WELL.

>> Stephen: BUT IS ITAPPROPRIATE TO MAKE JOKES ABOUT

REAL THINGS IN THE WORLD?

>> I PERSONALLY THINK IT ISAPPROPRIATE TO MAKE JOKES ABOUT

REAL THINGS. WE THOUGHT MAYBE WECOULD INJECT SOME SLIGHT

RELEVANCE I GUESS, OR -- I'MWORRIED

>> Stephen: FOR A SECOND, I'M --DON'T WORRY

I DON'T HAVE POISON ON MY HANDS.

(LAUGHTER)I'M NOT AN AGENT OF THE DPRK

DID YOU THINK ABOUT CHANGING HISNAME AT ALL, LIKE CALLING

HIM PHIL JONG-UN?

>> WE DID.

AND WE THOUGHT, WHOSE FEELINGSARE WE TRYING TO SPARE BY DOING

THAT, KIM JONG-UN?

>> Stephen: RIGHT.

(LAUGHTER)>> AND SO...

>> Stephen: I'M BEHIND YOU100%.

I THINK THESE GUYS CAN SUCK IT.

>> YEAH, WE WERE FASCINATED BYWHAT WAS HAPPENING IN

NORTH KOREA. THE MORE WE READABOUT IT, THE MORE BIZARRE

>> Stephen: HOW MUCH RESEARCH

DID YOU DO ON THIS?

>> WE READ ABOUT IT A LOT.

WATCHED DOCUMENTARIES,RESEARCHED ONLINE,

READ NEWS ARTICLES. WHAT'SINTERESTING IS

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH IS BASEDON FACT BECAUSE VERY LITTLE REAL

INFORMATION GETS IN AND OUT OFNORTH KOREA.

BUT WE DID AS MUCH AS WE HUMANLYCOULD.

>> Stephen: DID YOU TALK TODENNIS RODMAN?

>> WE DIDN'T.

WE TALKED TO THE PEOPLE WHO WENTTO NORTH KOREA WITH DENNIS

RODMAN.

>> Stephen: UH-HUH.

WE TALKED TO PEOPLE WHO METKIM JONG-UN THEMSELVES.

>> Stephen: BECAUSE IN THEMOVIE, ONE OF THE THINGS I

LIKE ABOUT IT IS HE'S A FUNGUY TO HANG OUT WITH.

>> ONE OF THE INTERESTING THINGSTHEY SAID IS WHEN YOU'RE IN THE

ROOM WITH HIM, YOU'RE NOT ALWAYSAWARE OF WHERE HE IS.

IT'S LIKE WHEN YOU'RE IN THEROOM OFF WITH THE PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES, YOU'RE ALWAYSAWARE WHERE HE IS. AND THEY SAID

YOU'RE HAVING A DRINK, HEAR ALAUGH, AND THEN KIM JONG-UN

WOULD JUST BE THERE -- WHAT AREYOU GUYS TALKING ABOUT?

(LAUGHTER)WHICH IS SOMETHING WE PUT IN THE

MOVIE IS HE WAS KIND OFUNASSUMING.

WE TRIED TO MAKE HIM, FOR LACKOF A BETTER WORD, ADORABLE.

>> Stephen: HE IS.

HE'S ADORABLE UP TO A POINT.

>> UP TO A POINT, YES.

AND THEN WE TRY TO EXPOSE IN ACOMEDIC WAY AS POSSIBLE, WE TRY

TO GET INTO WHAT IS ACTUALLYHORRIBLE ABOUT NORTH KOREA AND

EXPLAIN WHAT IS BAD ABOUT IT.

AND IT IS REALLY BAD.

>> Stephen: A TOTALITARIANREGIME HIGHLIGHTED WITH

DICK JOKES.

>> EXACTLY.

>> Stephen: LET'S TAKE A LOOK,WE HAVE A CLIP FROM THE MOVIE
