Stephen Colbert hit the headlines back in January when he kissed Andrew Garfield in response to the actor's intimate moment with Ryan Reynolds at the Golden Globes. If you were a fan of this moment — and were secretly hoping to see Colbert kissing more hot male actors — then you'll be pleased to hear that your wish has come true.
Colbert asked Wittrock — who is currently starring in a production of The Glass Menagerie on Broadway — if he has had the pleasure of kissing his co-star Sally Field yet. Wittrock said that he hadn't but informed Colbert that, "She told me to give you a kiss from her, but I think I'll refrain."
Colbert, no stranger to kissing his guests, signalled for Wittrock to come closer and planted a kiss on Wittrock's lips, which made the audience go crazy. It was a pretty surreal moment.

The Internet Loved Wittrock And Colbert's Smooch
Despite being a celebrated actor, this was Wittrock's first appearance on a late night talk show, and it's definitely not something he's likely to forget anytime soon — for that matter, neither are we. In fact, the internet understandably went a little crazy over Colbert and Wittrock's smooch:
Despite appearing in the hugely successful #LaLaLand, Wittrock is mostly known for his multiple roles on FX anthology series American Horror Story. His debut role on the show's fourth season, Freak Show, terrified us all and earned Wittrock an Emmy nomination. The following year he portrayed Tristan Duffy, Lady Gaga's hot boy-toy vampire in the fifth season, Hotel.
He was more recently seen playing a member of the barbaric Polk family in the sixth season, Roanoke. It is currently unknown if Wittrock will be joining Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters in the upcoming politically themed seventh season of American Horror Story. Either way, Wittrock got our attention last night and what else can we say? We ship it.
