Andy Serkis' Gollum resurfaces for a dramatic reading of Donald Trump tweets

Andy Serkis' Gollum resurfaces for a dramatic reading of Donald Trump tweets

Just when you thought Donald Trump's tweets couldn't get any more ridiculous, listen to this from Andy Serkis.

Andy Serkis was appearing on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" to promote his latest movie 'War For The Planet Of The Apes', when the host invited him to adopt his legendary character to read through some of the President's infamously inflammatory tweets. Mark Hamill, who beyond his role as Luke Skywalker is also an in-demand voice actor, recently read Trump's MSNBC/Morning Joe tweets in the voice of the Joker from Batman.

Stephen Colbert invited his "precious" Andy Serkis on The Late Show Tuesday night. "I wonder if I could as you a favor..."

Caesar may prove a strong, competent, and moral leader; yet, Colbert asked Serkis to revive his most beloved character to read out some tweets from a leader who encompasses absolutely none of those traits.

Jumping up on his chair, Serkis' vocals quickly changed to those of the shriveled, screeching creature that fans know so well from Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film series.

Watch Serkis read Trump's tweets in the video above.

The host then asked Serkis to read out the infamous "covfefe" tweet that nearly broke the internet.
