Stephen Colbert Envies Kyle MacLachlan Got to Play Paul Atreides in DUNE (1984)

In a fun interview early this year, Kyle MacLachlan visited the Late Show where host Stephen Colbert reveals that as a young man he desperately wanted the role of Paul Atreides in David Lynch's adaptation of DUNE (1984), which ultimately went to Kyle MacLachlan in his first film role. The two have a fun time reminiscing about some of Kyle's other David Lynch roles, particularly in Blue Velvet (1986). Colbert reveals that many of his friends gave him a hard time for looking so much like Kyle when that film was originally released.
