Colbert definitely had the fetchingly archaic look down, sporting Edward Cullen-esque pale makeup and the kind of 19th-century waistcoat of which Dracula would have approved. 

But he got a little tongue-tied around his garish vampire teeth, which he joked made him sound less like a scary monster and more like a Barcelona hostel resident.

So what do you think? Did Stephen make the “hot teen vamp” short list, or should we leave him in his coffin next year?
