Yep, and I noticed Luke really controlled the interview. Usually the host butts in and controls the direction of the interview. But Luke was so forthcoming, David just sat back and let Luke talk. His banter was so entertaining, why not?
Glad to hear my perception of Luke's weight gain confirmed.
Luke was so great, he really ought to be on TV more often - like, maybe, have his own show? YES!
He ROCKED. Dave was genuinely amused and laughing his butt off at all of Luke's stories. I loved the Andrew motorcylce story (I thought he was going to say that when Andrew turned around he had bugs in his teeth) and the Owen mace story-and how he'd only pick a fight with him when Owen was in the shower so he wouldn't have it handy. I love the 18 lb. comment and how he said guys like Jamie Foxx and "Connaughey" aren't going to go the distance like he did for a role. Luke just seemed "on" last night and he really seemed to be having a blast. I had a great time watching him.
Luke was so relaxed and his timing was great on all his stories. In addition to what you all have listed already... I loved how he said he was so bad at sign language that it was like algebra and that it could only be described as "jive". He would try to deflect attention from him to Craig T. Nelson the only other person worse than him.
He really had Letterman laughing.
Oh and that he is such an over achiever that there just aren't enough hours in the day... He was so busy when he was younger that he didn't even finish high school -- he said it was one of the traits of an over achiever - not finishing school.
HH, I know Letterman used to be on ITV2 in the UK, but as far as I know its not on anymore, do you know if it is shown anywhere. Luke seems to have been in fine form last night, it would be a real shame not to see it! CK
