Stephen Colbert’s cameo in “The Hobbit” really happened (see the clip below)

No one deserved a Hobbit cameo more than Stephen Colbert, the man who Peter Jackson called the biggest Tolkien geek he’d ever met!

Colbert dedicated an entire week of The Colbert Report to the first Hobbit movie last year.

Long rumored, the late-night star pops up in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. He plays a hooded spy in Laketown. It’s difficult to recognize him at first!

ENJOY!
