Andy Serkis is precious. 

Serkis – best-known for his many performance capture gigs, including Gollum in Rings and Caesar in the Apes films – appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to spruik War for the Planet of the Apes.

Colbert got him to read some of the best Trump tweets – yes, including covfefe – as Gollum, and the legend even jumped up onto the chair!

Have a laugh – War for the Planet of the Apes is in cinemas July 27.
