Illustration of Kurt Russell as R.J. MaCready from John Carpenter's masterwork, "The Thing"; released in 1982.

I have been a fortunate childm having frown up with the likes of artists and auteurs like John Carpenter. Much like George Lucas, Stephen Speilberg, and Francic Ford Coppolla, John Carpenter is large segment of the zoetrope of my youth. So much so, that Kurt Russell morphed from a Disney kid to an action hero for anyone growing up in the late 1970s and 80s. Her is a new illustration of Kurt Russell as R.J. MacReady from John Carpenter’s masterwork, “The Thing“; released in 1982.

As if his deep knowledge of J.R.R. Tolkien wasn’t enough, Stephen Colbert is also deeply aware of the story of “The Thing” and its impact on our social consciousness. Check out his obvious love for this film and admiration for John Carpenter in this clip above, from The Late Show
