The enigmatic and talented actor, on a recent visit to the “Late Show with David Letterman,” gave a very animated retelling of the tale of how he met his yoga teacher and future wife. [...]

Not an actual photo from the show, but we imagine it to be an accurate depiction. We may get our yoga TV show after all. While we wait on pins and needles for the yoga reality show we’ll have to just be satisfied with an Amazon-produced yoga-based comedy web series coming to a small screen [...]
