Stephen Colbert will make a cameo in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy, a knowledgeable source confirms to THR. The host of Comedy Central’s Colbert Report is a huge J.R.R. Tolkien and Lord of the Rings fan who reads Elvish. No word on which role he’ll play in the franchise and whether it will be a key character or just part of the background. Colbert’s cameo will not come in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which hits theaters Nov. 14, the first of Jackson and Warner Bros’ $1 billion series.
