The interview took place on Sunday during a special edition of The Late Show which aired following Super Bowl LIII.
The segment involved Carell and Colbert bending over to fit their heads into a cardboard box in order to have a more intimate conversation. Colbert asked the Office alum about looking handsome in his late 50s and their first impressions of each other.
"Why did you wait so long to get sexy?" Colbert asked. "You are aware that now you are a hot, salt-and-pepper zaddy."
Colbert also inquired as to why Carell has switched over to performing in more dramas as seen in his recent films Welcome to Marwen and Vice.
"All I want is to be respected and to be pretentious," Carell joked.
Other moments included Colbert bringing in an electric fan to cool down and the pair sharing a large mint together.
