Adam Driver Remembers Star Wars Co-Star Carrie Fisher


MY FIRST GUEST TONIGHT HAS
WORKED WITH STEVEN SPIELBERG, JJ ABRAMS, JIM JARMUSCH, MARTIN
SCORSESE, AND NOW STEPHEN COLBERT. PLEASE WELCOME ADAM DRIVER! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
♪>>Stephen: WELCOME BACK! THANKS.>>Stephen: NICE TO SEE YOU
AGAIN. HAD YOU ON LAST YEAR. HAD A REALLY NICE TIME. THANK YOU FOR COMING BACK.>>YEAH.>>Stephen: ONE OF THE THINGS
I LEARNED LAST TIME WHEN YOU WERE HERE YOU WENT TO JUILLIARD
WHEN THESE GUYS WERE THERE.>>YEAH.>>Stephen: THEY’VE TOLD US
SOME STORIES ABOUT YOU SINCE YOU WERE HERE LAST TIME, AND THESE
GUYS SAY — AND THIS IS RIGHT — YOU WERE KNOWN FOR MAKING YOUR
CLASSMATES CRY –>>THAT’S PARTLY TRUE.>>Stephen: WHAT PART OF IT IS
CREW, THE CRYING PART?>>YEAH.>>Stephen: WHY? I MEAN, WELL, NOT
PURPOSEFULLY. I HAD JUST COME RIGHT OUT OF THE
MILITARY SO –>>Stephen: YOU WERE A MARINE
AS SOME PEOPLE MAY NOT KNOW.>>I WAS IN THE MARINE CORPS. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
AND YOU’RE JUST USED TO YO TALKI TO PEOPLE IN A DIFFERENT WAY
THAN IN THE CIVILIAN WORLD, AND I HAD TO TONE IT DOWN A BIT AND
REALIZE THE STAKES AREN’T ALWAYS THAT HIGH. LIKE IF SOMEONE USES YOUR YOGA
MAT AND GETS ASS SWEAT ON YOUR YOGA MAT, IT’S NO REASON TO REAM
THEM OUT FOR IT.>>Stephen: ACTUALLY, I THINK
THAT IS A REASON TO REAM SOMEBODY OUT. ASS SWEAT ON MY YOGA MAT. BUT YOU WERE INTENSE.>>YOU CAN SAY THAT IN A
RESPECTFUL WAY.>>Stephen: WHAT IS THE
RESPECTFUL WAY?>>DON’T GET YOUR ASS SWEAT ON
MY YOGA MAT, PLEASE.>>Stephen: THAT’S VERY NICE. YEAH.>>Stephen: YOU ALSO DO
SOMETHING CALLED — YOU HAVE A NONE-PROFIT CALLED ARTS IN THE
ARMED FORCES. WHAT’S THAT?>>WE DO CONTEMPORARY THEATER
FOR THE MILITARY AUDIENCE. THAT’S HOW I HEARD OF JON
THROUGH THE CHANNELS AT SCHOOL, BUT HE DID ONE OF OUR FIRST
PERFORMANCES WHERE HE TOOK TWO OR THREE-MINUTE SPEECHES FROM
CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN PLAYS AND WE JUST READ IT FOR MILITARY
AUDIENCES. IT’S NOT MILITARY-THEMED IN ANY
WAY.>>Stephen: WITH THE U.S.O.,
ACTIVE DUTY PEOPLE?>>IT IS FOR ACTIVE DUTY
VETERANS AND VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES AND WE JUST PERFORM
PLAYS. NOW WE’RE KIND OF READING PLAYS
ALL OVER. BEEN TO WALTER REED, BETHESDA,
MARYLAND, KUWAIT, KIND OF ALL THE OVER THE WORLD AND THE
UNITED STATES. IT’S LIKE RAISING MONEY FOR AN
ARTS NONPROFIT IS PRETTY DIFFICULT.>>Stephen: YEAH, CHALLENGING. BUT IT’S A GOOD CHALLENGE
WHEN YOU TRY TO CONVINCE A MILITARY AUDIENCE OR ANY
AUDIENCE A PLAY IS IMPORTANT. IT’S KIND OF TAKEN OFF IN THE
PAST FEW YEARS IN A REALLY GREAT WAY.>>Stephen: THAT’S GREAT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. ( APPLAUSE )
NOW, YOU’VE ACTUALLY GOT TWO MOVIES OUT NOW WHICH ARE BOTH
GETTING GREAT NOTICES. SILENCE WITH MARTIN SCORSESE AND
PATERSON WITH JIM JARMUSCH. VERY DIFFERENT TO WORK WITH,
THOSE TWO GUYS.>>YEAH, DIFFERENT PROJECTS.>>Stephen: WELL TOTALLY
DIFFERENT PROJECTS, AND AS DIRECTORS, NO WRONG ANSWER,
WHO’S BETTER?>>JIM SCORSESE. YOU KNOW, THEY’RE BOTH
DIFFICULT. SCORSESE IS SOMEONE I’VE ALWAYS
WANTED TO WORK WITH EVER SINCE I WAS A KID. HE PROBABLY DOESN’T WANT TO HEAR
THAT — BECAUSE HE’S OLDER. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: THAT’S THE PART HE DIDN’T WANT TO HEAR, FOR THE
RECORD.>>BUT JIM IS THE SAME. NOT ONLY HIS MOVIES, BUT WHO HE
IS AS A PERSON IS KIND OF AMAZING, IF YOU’VE MET HIM.>>Stephen: I WOULD LOVE TO. BUT BOTH ARE EQUALLY
DIFFERENT PROJECTS AND EQUALLY DIFFERENT PEOPLE AND THEY — THE
VALUE OF THEM IS HARD TO KIND OF QUANTIFY.>>Stephen: NOW, IN “SILENCE”
YOU PLAY A 17th CENTURY JESUIT PRIEST —
>>YEAH.>>Stephen: — WHO GOES TO
JAPAN TO TRY TO FIND LIAM NEESON. HE’S ANOTHER MISSIONARY PRIEST,
ALL RIGHT, WHO I ASSUME HAS BEEN TAKEN BY THE JAPANESE.>>YEAH, RIGHT. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: WHO HAS A PARTICULAR SET OF SKILLS WHICH
INCLUDE THE SEVEN SACRAMENTS. ( LAUGHTER )
AND THIS IS CLOSED JAPAN WHERE NO WESTERNERS WERE ALLOWED IN?>>YEAH, IT BASICALLY GOT TO A
CERTAIN POINT WHERE THEY FELT THEIR POLITICAL IDENTITY WAS
LOST AND THEY WANTED TO RECAPTURE IT. SO ALL THE TEMPLES THAT WERE
THERE WERE DESTROYED AND TURNED INTO CHURCHES AND ALL THESE
CHRISTIANS, SUDDENLY, NAGASAKI WAS KIND OF KNOWN AS THE ROME OF
THE EAST BECAUSE CHRISTIANITY AND CATHOLICISM KIND OF SPREAD
LIKE WILDFIRE AND SOME OF THE PEOPLE THERE, THE SHOWGUNS,
DIDN’T SEE THEIR COUNTRY ANYMORE AND ERADICATED IT FORCEFULLY
FROM THE COUNTRY.>>Stephen: IN THE MOVIE, YOU
ARE WITH OTHER CHRISTIAN JAPANESE WHO ARE BEING TESTED IN
YOUR FAITH, AND WE HAVE A CLIP HERE OF Y’ALL BEING TESTED IN
YOUR FAITH BY BEING FORCED TO TRAMPLE AN IMAGE OF CHRIST TO
PROVE THAT YOU AREN’T A CHRISTIAN.>>RIGHT.>>Stephen: AND YOU AND
GARFIELD HAVE DIFFERENT OPINIONS AS TO WHAT THE RESPONSE SHOULD
BE TO THIS.>>MM-HMM.>>Stephen: JIM? WE ARE FORCED TO TRAMPLE ON
THE LORD.>>YOU MUST PRAY FOR COURAGE. BUT IF WE DO NOT DO WHAT THEY
WANT, THERE CAN BE DANGER FOR EVERY CHRISTIAN. THEY CAN BE PUT IN PRISON, THEY
WILL BE THERE FOREVER. WHAT SHOULD WE DO?>>TRAMPLE. TRAMPLE. IT’S ALL RIGHT TO TRAMPLE.>>WHAT ARE YOU SAYING? YOU CAN’T. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: NOW, YOU ALSO — SOME PEOPLE MAY NOT KNOW THIS,
YOU’RE ALSO IN THIS LITTLE THING CALLED “STAR WARS.” ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
AND YOU PLAY A MONKISH CHARACTER.>>YEAH.>>Stephen: FIRST OF ALL, I’M
SORRY FOR THE LOSS OF YOUR FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE CARRY
FISHER.>>OH, YEAH.>>Stephen: WE HAD HER ON
BEFORE CHRISTMAS AND SHE WAS A DELIGHT TO HAVE ON. IT WAS AN HONOR TO TALK TO HER. WHAT WAS SHE LIKE TO WORK WITH
ON SET? WAS SHE FUN?>>YEAH, AS YOU CAN TELL FROM
MEETING HER, SHE BURNS VERY BRIGHT AND HAS SUCH A GREAT,
VERY GENEROUS ENERGY FOR THAT SUDDENLY NOT TO BE ON SET, AND
WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IT AND PUBLICITY OR IN LIFE WHEN YOU
SEE HER IN A “STAR WARS” EVENT OR ANYWHERE, SHE’S JUST — YOU
KNOW, TO HAVE HER CHARACTER, NOT JUST IN THE MOVIE, BUT HER
CHARACTER MISSING FROM THAT VERY SMALL UNIT IS A TRAGEDY.>>Stephen: WELL, I KNOW, HAVE
YOU ALREADY FINISHED THE NEXT INSTALLMENT OF THE MOVIE?>>WE FINISHED THE SECOND ONE
LAST SUMMER. I THINK THE LAST TIME I SAW HER
WAS ON SET BEING PRINCESS LEIA.>>Stephen: WERE YOU A FAN OF
THESE MOVIES GROWING UP?>>I WAS.>>Stephen: I WAS AN ENORMOUS
FAN. I SAW A PREVIEW AND I WAS VERY
EXCITED. I LOVE YOUR LIGHTSABER WITH THE
HANDLE.>>YES, RIGHT.>>Stephen: I’M A BIG DEFENDER
OF THE LIGHTSABER.>>YOU ARTICULATED IT BETTER
THAN ANYONE ELSE.>>Stephen: BECAUSE I BELIEVE
IN IT. I GOT TO HAVE A LIGHTSABER OR A
LASER SWORD HE CALLS IT WITH GEORGE LUCAS WHICH WAS VERY
EXCITING. DO YOU THUMB WRESTLE?>>I DO, YEAH.>>Stephen: WOULD YOU BE
WILLING TO THUMB WRESTLE ME WITH LIGHT SABERS?>>YES! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: JUST PUT IT ON THE THUMB.>>I’M MISSING TWO —
>>Stephen: IT’S AN OLDER MODEL. YOU WANT TO PUT IT ON THE TOP SO
I WIL WON’T HAVE AN ADVANTAGE OV YOU. READY?>>YEAH, BUT YOU’RE PUTTING —
>>Stephen: WHAT ARE YOU DOING? PUT IT RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE RIGHT
HERE? DO WE HAVE A SETUP HERE? DO WE HAVE A SHOT AT IT? THERE YOU GO. ONE TWO THREE FOUR.>>ONE TWO THREE FOUR. ( LIGHTSABER SOUNDS )
>>ONE TWO THREE FOUR, NOW YOU START A THUMB WAR BURKS AGAIN. THAT’S IT, RIGHT?>>Stephen: SLIGHTLY
DIFFERENT. READY? ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, NOW WE
START A STAR WAR! ( SABER SOUNDS )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )>>Stephen: ADAM. ADAM. JUST BE HONEST. I’M NOT GOING TO MAKE YOU CRY,
AM I? ( LAUGHTER )
WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH MORE ADAM DRIVER. STICK AROUND.

  1. Adam's eyes looked like they were starting to water. It must've been tough for him to even say that much without crying.

  2. There are 2 motherfuckers in film and television that I will never forgive. 1. Adam Driver for killing his Dad in number 7. And 2. Walton Goggins for killing Lem in the Shield. Don't come hungry to my house you pricks, because there will be no food for you!
    However – Steven, your money is no good here; take and eat what you want, love your work man.
    But seriously, I will cross the road to punch either Adam or Walton in the dick (or both at the same time).
    As a passionate fan, I am sure Steven agrees that 1-3 were garbage and 7 was THE WORST MOVIE EVER MADE.

  3. Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley before said that they were not really "fans" of it growing up. Not that they were not NOT fans just that they weren't FANS. So to hear him say he was a fan growing up here I dunno, which is it? It doesn't matter to me cause he and they all have as well taken to it like a fish to water and it's working spectacularly… but he did sorta sound like he didn't like it growing up as much as he lets on now.

  4. ONLY WHITE PEOPLE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR SUPREMEACY, AND THE BIGOTED REJECTION OF OTHER CULTURES. FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE, FUCK WHITE PEOPE…. i'm white… bang, splat… (appeasement)

    END SCENE

  5. I bet not many people know that Adam Driver is a Marine, and that he has been married since 2013. Semper Fi bro! Long live the First Order

  6. I'm so happy Stephen asked him about his nonprofit. 🙂 I know it's important to Adam and I'm glad Stephen gave him a platform to talk about it.

  7. “Where are you Ben?!”
    “Here I am.”
    “Can you believe who my parents turned out to be?”

    “No, I have to use the bathroom.”
    “I’ll wait.”
    “I’m done.”
    “You left your c~”
    places cape on table

  8. Adam’s face when Stephen said they told stories about him and Julliard is my face when friends from college talk to my mom.

  9. he must tell everytime that he was in the Military, but forgets to mention that he has never been deployed, lucky bastard

  10. Seeing bits and pieces of interviews about him made me appreciate him now why he's Kylo Ren…. He's got this aura of being calm and suddenly shift into a raging intimidating one.

  11. That would have been funny if they had impromptu enacted a force chock at the end. It seemed like Adam was legitimately frustrated but playing it up as. a joke.

  12. In case anyone is interested: casting a younger Severus Snape: who would you choose? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXuyA1JBea0

  13. He can be very scary! I remember the firt time i watched the force awakens and this guy really scared me, I was suffering for Rey and not wanting him to approach her. But he's also gentle and fun, very connected with his inner feelings. He's perfect to play Kylo Ren.

  14. HEY ADAM MY REAL NAME IS ADAM TOO BUT YOUR LIKE MY 2ND ADAM EVER BUT MY FAV IS ADAM CONOVER BUT THANKS FOR BEING SO GOOD AT YOU JOB AND IF I BE COME LIKE YOU THEN I WANT TO MAKE ADAM CONOVER, ADAM L. AND ALL THE OTHER ADAMS PROUD OF ME P.S MY SISTER SAID HI

  15. In what fictional world do we combine the genes of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fischer and get Adam driver? ??? ???????????????????????????????????

  16. You guys cheered when he said he was in the marines. He did a ted talks and yes he was trained to be a marine but never served/ never went battle as he said he injured his lower back mountain biking so he was discharged from the marines whilst his mates went to iraq. So all credit to him for passing the gruelling test to be a marine.

  17. Liked this guy ever since the first time I saw him in that crossing Australia movie, definitely has something. He's like a more talented , more articulate Keanu Reeves (who I also like).

  18. :59 nods and smiles as he recalls the carnage: thinks to himself “… oh god the humanity … keep smiling or he will come for me next”
    9:39 “I told you! (Runs)
