While promoting his latest motion-capture performance as the ape Caesar in “War for the Planet of the Apes,” Andy Serkis stopped by “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” to talk about the work that goes into pulling off the performance.
But Colbert also used the occasion to get Serkis to voice one of his most famous mo-cap characters, Gollum from “The Lord of the Rings.”
And the catch: Serkis would read some of President Donald Trump’s tweets in the Gollum voice.
