Stephen Colbert tried divine intervention to convince Oprah to run for president

Mashable

On the Late Show last night, Colbert gave Oprah what she said she needed in order to run for president in 2020: a sign from God. After Oprah firmly explained the talkativeness of her co-stars from A Wrinkle In Time, as well as her intense dislike of gum chewing, Colbert joked, "are you going to yell through this entire interview?" Sounds like a perfect presidential candidate to me. Which is why Colbert staged a divine intervention from God, who appeared on the ceiling of the studio with a literal sign saying, "RUN!" along with Oprah 2020 merch that the Lord says he used his wife's credit card to pay for. Though Oprah did not seem convinced, but said she'd be adding running to her daily workout routine, she hopes God finds a candidate he is inspired by in 2020.

One of the popular assumptions was the Snoke is a reincarnation of Mace Windu or Palpatine. Another theorized Snoke is a reborn Anakin. Love that it leaves so much open! Who really pulls that trigger?


'Star Wars: The Last Jedi': Building a Better Snoke

WIRED

Star Wars fans met Snoke in The Force Awakens--kinda sorta. The withered baddie was just a fuzzy projection tele-conspiring with his First Order goons. But in December's sequel, The Last Jedi, the Supreme Leader gets his close-up. "Snoke's face is no longer a soapy, gelatinous hologram," says Industrial Light & Magic creative director Ben Morris. "He's going to be real." Well, as real as Andy Serkis covered in motion-capture sensors can be (with help from new rendering tech and purpose-built skin software). Which is to say: extremely, frighteningly alive.

SEE ALSO: If you've ever wanted to build your own droid, Star Wars just made your dreams come true Well, even though the new Star Wars toys unveiled on Force Friday don't give us any answers to the first two questions, they do give us a better look at the leader of the First Order: He looks sort of cute there, doesn't he? Well he looks less cute in this next one, but it does make something abundantly clear: he has a fabulous, shiny golden cloak. Snoke has a yellow cloak.
