The Late Show with Stephen Colbert had John Lithgow on last week plugging his new book.
Lithgow convinced his pal Meryl to read from his book, Trumpty Dumpty Wanted A Crown: Verses For A Despotic Age, and of course she did NOT disappoint.
Streep read Lithgow’s The Toreys, also known as The Tiger King, to the camera, and brought her Oscar-winning talent to the story of a political party that enables a tiger, who becomes king… (Her reading starts about 6:40)
Besides Streep, Lithgow has also enlisted stars like Samuel L. Jackson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Glenn Close and Whoopi Goldberg to read.
