Stephen Colbert and James McAvoy Read the Audience’s Minds on The Late Show

Stephen Colbert

James McAvoy stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night to promote his new film, X-Men: Apocalypse, which hits theaters tomorrow. The two of them discussed Glasgow, Scotland, where McAvoy is from, and the “class ceiling,” which suggests that more and more actors and actresses from England are coming from more private, expensive schools, while those who are at public schools aren’t provided the same opportunities. However, after touching on a more serious topic like that, Colbert and McAvoy still found time to goof off in a pretty funny segment where the two of them pretended to have Professor X-like powers that allowed them to read people’s minds.

In the video below, McAvoy tells Colbert that he’s able to relate to the character of Charles Xavier because not only do they look alike, but he also possesses the ability to read minds. When Colbert tells him that he has this power also, the two of them work together to read the minds of several different members of the Late Show audience, discovering that people are thinking about everything from sleeping with Flo the Progressive Lady (and wondering if Flo would want to sleep with them, too) to what a ghost giraffe would be like. Plus, during the whole segment, you get to hear James McAvoy say really funny, goofy things like “sugar alley” before he enters people’s minds.

“Sugar alley? Again, that sounds like a porn movie,” Colbert says, laughing.

Watch Stephen Colbert and James McAvoy read the minds of audience members in the video below, and then check out the two other clips from their interview underneath that.
