Famous people are no more peopled in life than anyone else, and if Colbert's little experiment proves anything, it might be that famous people ought to be the last people we seek out for advice ... unless you have an unhealthy interest in ferrets, like one former "X-Files" star.
When asked by one man about whether or not he should leave his girlfriend if she's not interested in having questions, Daniels dodged the question altogether. "that's a pretty heavy question, Ed. Instead of answering that, I'm gonna answer an easier one, like, are sandwiches good?" he said. "Yes, Ed, sandwiches are good."
"Maybe, instead of having a baby, you could raise a wolf," Winkler suggested helpfully. "I mean, you always hear people go, what were you raised by a wolf? But you never hear, what'd you raise, a wolf? Ed, that could be you."
Another person wrote in asking what to do about their neighbor's unkempt lawn leading Pegg into an elaborate story about UK "grass fairies" that we are very skeptical of. Meanwhile, Stone's suggestion involved ice picks in a disturbing nod to her iconic role in "Basic Instinct."
And Duchovny, well, every question seemed to have a similarly-themed answer. Let's just say somebody loves their ferrets. Hunt gave perhaps the most honest answer to someone who didn't want to have to write out a thank you letter to her grandmother. "I'm not really sure. This isn't my problem," she concluded.
Check out all of their terrible and hilarious advice in the video above. If we're lucky, Colbert will make this a recurring treat like Kimmel's "Mean Tweets."
