On Friday night, Stephen Colbert welcomed legendary actor, restaurateur and humanitarian Robert De Niro to The Late Show—or so it seemed. The interview was taped Tuesday and didn’t air until Friday, as the comedian explained to his TV audience, which meant that his guest couldn’t comment on the explosive Mueller Report that dropped Thursday.
The occasion, as it were, was the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival—running April 24-May 5—which De Niro co-founded in the wake of 9/11 to help revitalize the Lower Manhattan area.
The article goes on to state the following:
Colbert kicked things off by asking about his stint playing Robert Mueller on Saturday Night Live, and questioned why the actor called playing the special prosecutor investigating President Trump and his cronies a “civic duty.”
“I have no other way to say it, I guess. It’s a civic duty. It’s my civic obligation to play Mueller,” De Niro replied. “I’m hoping that it goes further. I don’t know what’ll happen, but I keep saying that, I don’t know whether this is actually possible in reality, where I can handcuff him and take him away in an orange jumpsuit.”
