Stephen Colbert’s ‘Hobbit’ Cameo Revealed

Comedy Central talk-show personality and self-declared J.R.R. Tolkien super-fan Stephen Colbert is in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug — and here’s the proof.

A Reddit user spotted and posted an image of the Colbert Report host’s long-anticipated Hobbit cameo, depicting him as a spy in Lake-town, also known as Esgaroth, home of Bard the Bowman. It’s an incredibly quick cameo, not unlike Peter Jackson’s own movie-opening appearance chomping on a carrot outside of the Prancing Pony in Bree. Nevertheless, it’s an exciting Easter egg for Colbert fans, not to mention what a thrill it must have been for Colbert himself.

Now it’s time to name the character. Col, son of Bert? Let’s start there.
