Over the past week, a number of stars from the movie, TV, and music worlds have posted about the hit mobile game on their social media channels. People playing the game include singers John Mayer, Mark Hoppus, Wiz Khalifa, as well as actor Bryan Cranston. Of course, comedian and late night TV host Stephen Colbert didn't miss a chance to crack a joke, too.
