Last Night on Late Night: Mandy Patinkin Gave Stephen Colbert A Verbal Lashing

Last night on The Colbert Report, things got really heated once Stephen Colbert's conservative digs pushed Mandy Patinkin right over the ledge of composure. Neck vein bulging, voice crescendoing, Patinkin unleashed the fury of Homeland 's Saul Berenson upon a stunned Colbert. "Are you not responsible at all for anything that goes on in the world?" he charged over the two sides of terrorism. Needless to say, there was no Stephen Sondheim duet (damn it). Plus: In awesome Christmas gift-giving, Jimmy Kimmel paid out the original owner of the @JohnKrasinski Twitter handle to its rightful, eponymous owner. Since after all, #yolo . Also, Downton Abbey' s Hugh Bonneville approved of Jimmy Fallon 's Robert Crawley; and Kerry Washington admitted the graphic language and violence of Django Unchained had sent her straight to the therapy chair. "I kept telling Quentin that I was going to send him my extra therapy bills," she told Jay Leno. Watch our compilation to see what you missed.

WATCH: Stephen Colbert Skewers Denny's Hobbit Menu

If you've tuned into the Colbert Report recently, you know that Stephen Colbert -- a self-described "Hobbit head" -- has been geeking out on his program's Hobbit Week, welcoming stars of the upcoming Hobbit flick as guests and dishing about all things Lord of the Rings. And nothing is off limits. The comedian turned his attention last night to Denny's Hobbit-themed menu , which Grub Grade profiled for us back in October . It's clear that Colbert's love for Tolkien's books hasn't prevented him from making fun of things that are, well, ripe for parody. He describes the menu, filled with items like "Frodo's Pot Roast Skillet," "The Ring Burger" and "Gandalf's Gobble Melt," as "a delicious tribute to a beloved children's book, though the breakfast has a much darker ending." If you're wondering why this promotion exists, Colbert explains: "Yes, eat like a hobbit because at Denny's you can't eat like a human." Watch Stephen Colbert skewer Denny's Hobbit Menu in the video below.
