Most mainstream outlets have pretty much picked up how crazy T.J. Miller can be in an interview and the Silicon Valley star brought his A-game to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night. Anyone who wasn’t aware of how weird things can get with this guy just got treated to some eggs to the face and skeleton arms antics. And that probably wasn’t even the weirdest part.
“Would this be so weird if this was the way you died?” is probably the last thing a talk show host wants to hear from his interview subject, but then again T.J. Miller is not a normal interview subject. Thankfully because Colbert too comes from a strange place of comedy (The Daily Show wasn’t exactly normal), he (sort of) knew what to expect. Or did he?
The interview was going “fine” until about three minutes in when Miller starts to recall his acceptance speech at the 2015 Critics’ Choice awards and how it led to him hosting the 2016 show. At that point Miller begins to reach into his pocket and proceeds to say, “I don’t know what’s gonna happen!”
Sure enough he proceeded to smash an egg on his face. By the way, Miller is going to be starring in Deadpool, which he didn’t even plug. And let’s not forget what he does to Colbert’s face with skeleton arms. This was all basically par for the course for a T.J. Miller interview.
