Val Kilmer sees Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert in the context of Mark Twain. #SoundsAboutRight

Val Kilmer Really Getting Into This Mark Twain Stuff -- Vulture

Kilmer as Twain Vulture
"In terms of outreach and power and respect, I think Jon Stewart is a worthy comparison because he's got a very specific agenda and he seems to be getting, even gaining, a respect from the conservative community because, like Twain, his stuff is so — you can't really deny him," Kilmer tells The Hollywood Reporter. "Twain was kind of a ridiculous showman and self-promoter, like Stephen Colbert, so that's the kind of American satirist," he says. "There's a lot in comparing that style of presenting yourself as completely absurd but making really valid points along the way."
