Why do bad things happen to good people? What does Santa do during the summer? Is the solar system just an atom on a giant's finger?

In a new segment on his new show, Stephen Colbert lies down with stars to look at the stars and ask life's big questions. There's a lot you can learn about both Tom Hanks and the universe itself: if he had a time machine, he would "go back in time and hold [himself] as a baby"... and have the baby kill Hitler so he can both prevent millions of death and strengthen the baby's job prospects. He also has a pitch for an excellent action movie: look out for "In the Line of Fur" coming to a theater near you.
