As much as I love Stephen Colbert the character (and perhaps because I do), there's something especially endearing about seeing him flip the schtick switch and be Stephen Colbert the guy. He's like a Jeckyll and Hyde where both personalities are awesome, which, to be honest, would be a pretty boring book. So, good job, Robert Louis Stevenson, for doing it the other way. Anyway, speaking of Stephen Colbert the guy and dudes with the middle name Louis, here's a preview for the new PBS series Faces of America with Henry Louis Gates Jr. At :35, Stephen learns about his Great-Grandfather becoming a US citizen.
After the jump you can watch Henry Louis Gates Jr's two Colbert Report appearances.
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.
