There have been rumors that comedian, faux-pundit and host of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report", Stephen Colbert, would appear in a cameo role in director Peter Jackson's adaptation of author J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved novel "The Hobbit" for several months now.
Well it appears as though those rumors are true. We can look for Colbert, a known Tolkien devote who is no doubt delighted to be a part of the adventure, in one of the two films following "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" either "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" or "The Hobbit: There and Back Again".
Let's all see if we can spot him!
As a huge Colbert fan (who is anxiously awaiting these films) I am exited to see him be a part of it. More than that, it is always a pleasure when a true fan gets a dream come true in this way.
In the interim, take a look at an image of Conan Stevens as Blog, the leader of the Misty Mountains' goblins below!
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever... Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" opens in AMC theaters in High Frame Rate (HFR) 3D, other 3D formats, IMAX and 2D on December 14th, 2012.
