Colbert wax figure featured at D.C. Madame Tussauds
Stephen Colbert has taken his place among the presidents at the Madame Tussauds wax museum in Washington and will be featured in a new media gallery.
Mr. Colbert visited the museum Friday to unveil a new wax figure created to represent him. The museum said Mr. Colbert donated his own clothes to dress the figure in a suit, tie, cuff links and lapel pin.
The new figure will be the centerpiece of a new media gallery with a replica of “The Colbert Report” set where guests can sit next to Mr. Colbert’s figure behind his fake news desk.
Designers from Madame Tussauds went to Mr. Colbert’s New York studio in June to take more than 250 measurements and photographs of the Comedy Central star to create the wax figure.
Univision collecting stories for immigrant archive
The Spanish-language media company Univision and one of its top advertisers are encouraging Hispanics to share their stories about establishing new lives in the United States for an immigrant archive.
The Univision network kicked off the effort, called Generacion America, during Thursday’s telecast of the Latin Grammy Awards.
Univision and its affiliated networks will help collect stories from celebrities and average citizens to be part of the Immigrant Archive Project, an independent effort to collect the stories, and show snippets of them on TV. Advertiser Procter & Gamble is helping to fund the effort, although neither company would say how much is being spent.
