Wonder turns 69, while Colbert turns 55 and Rheon rings in 34.
Wonder recently made headlines when he called for better gun control during late rapper Nipsey Hussle's memorial service last month.
When the singer took the stage at the Staples Center to eulogize Hussle, 33, who was shot to death outside his Marathon Clothing store in March, Wonder stated: "It is so painful to know that we don’t have enough people taking a position that says: ‘Listen, we must have stronger gun laws. It’s unacceptable.'"
As for Colbert, the late-night host made news when he blasted Attorney General William Barr over his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, saying he wanted to "wring his neck" during the testimony.
As for Rheon, who is best known for playing Ramsay Bolton on "Game of Thrones," he spoke about what it was like to have his character be [spoiler alert] eaten by dogs on the HBO series.
