CBS News: Stephen Colbert, for real


"I started off as an actor. I really thought, 'Oh, I wonder if I'll ever make it to Broadway?'" said Stephen Colbert. "Well, I made it! Through a fairly circuitous route, but I made it." Colbert has indeed made it to Broadway, to the restored Ed Sullivan Theater, where he's succeeding David Letterman as host of "The Late Show." Don't worry: All the ladders and scaffolding will be cleared out by the time he welcomes his first guests on Tuesday night. Rocca asked, "Will you greet the guests before they come on stage? 'Cause some hosts don't!" "Yeah, some hosts don't. I got in the habit of doing it at the old show because I wanted to say, 'Hey, the guy you're about to meet is a complete idiot. And, you know, he's well-intentioned, poorly informed, high-status idiot.'"Read the full story on CBS News Sunday Morning.
