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

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

The whole thing is fantastic not just because Serkis delivers an impeccable Gollum performance, but also because it makes Trump's attacks on the "fake news media" sound more terrifying than ever.

His performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert sent Twitter users into raptures, with one calling it "pure genius".

Another said: "Andy Serkis reading Trump tweets as Gollum!".

Award-winning British performance capture artist, Andy Serkis, is most famous for playing the paranoid, underground riddler Gollum in the Lord of the Rings movies.

So now, instead of imagining a red-faced man shouting into the void whenever you read a Trump tweet, you can sub in thisssssss. The tremendous reading is from a message that Donald Trump tweeted out on June 13th, 2017 at 3:53 A.M. about his disdain for the so called "fake media". Purposely incorrect stories and phony sources to meet their agenda of hate. Sad! "Wait. What's covfefe, precious?", he added. As Colbert answers with "No one knows..."

Stephen Colbert isn't the only person to notice the similarity between Trump tweets and Gollum's ranting tendencies, as evidenced by the very excellent Gollum J. Trump account that's been Gollum-izing Trump tweets since last summer.
