Susan Sarandon Gives Stephen Colbert Some Acting Tips [VIDEO]

Susan Sarandon seems positively tickled by Stephen Colbert in the clip to your right. On The Colbert Report promoting her acclaimed new film co-starring Tommy Lee Jones and Charlize Theron, In The Valley of Elah, she talks about the importance of the movie's theme which is the impact on soldiers and their families when they get back from war. Typically Colbert pretends to have confused the movie with Billy Bob Thorton's Mr. Woodcock. The best part though is when Colbert tries to convince Sarandon that it would be more of stretch for her to play a pro-war character and urges her to read from a script he's prepared for the both of them.
