Talking Heads Will Reunite on Colbert Tonight for Interview, See Mick Jagger Give Jimmy Fallon His Frozen Secrets


David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz and Jerry Harrison will sit uncomfortably tonight on Stephen Colbert’s couch.

The Talking Heads will gather together for the second time since September, and since they all broke up and sued each other 30 years ago. (They appeared together at the Toronto Film Festival also.)

“Stop Making Sense” was released to the theaters all new and spiffed up about three weeks ago. The Jonathan Demme film has made $4.6 million since then on IMAX screens.

On another note, Mick Jagger did a filmed piece last night on Jimmy Fallon that was hilarious.
