Who knew? Stephen Colbert is not only a fan of America, but of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy as well. Now, the Comedy Central host of “The Colbert Report” has landed a cameo in the upcoming film trilogy “The Hobbit.”
The news-spoof host told Playboy magazine (in which he appears only in an interview and not a pictorial), “Peter Jackson invited me to the set last year. I flew out and watched them shoot some scenes and went to some locations. I saw a 25-minute cut, and it was amazing. Jackson knows I’m a big fan of the films.”
It turns out his trip wasn’t purely recreational. Rumor has it that Colbert’s appearance will not come in the first film of the “Hobbit” trilogy, but likely the second. It will be a long wait until we’re able to see just what his cameo entails.
