Props to the "The Colbert Report," which saw fit to interview Werner Herzog (!) as he promotes the release of "Cave of Forgotten Dreams." Although he resisted Colbert's suggestion to describe the film as "cave porn," Herzog provided a good match to Colbert's wit. After describing the film's postscript (it features an albino alligator), the director went into a long rant about the the unknown lives of those listed in the New York City phone book. Steven Colbert confessed: "I want to party with you, cowboy."
