In Case You Missed It, Here’s Stephen Colbert’s Cameo in ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ – In Pics AND GIFs!

Fun fact: Mega Tolkien nerd Stephen Colbert appeared in 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' - but you've got to look fast, or you'll miss him!

Stephen Colbert

As a longtime Tolkien fan, of course I went to go see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug back when it opened on December 13. As the credits rolled, I seemed to remember vaguely that Stephen Colbert—who may well be the biggest Tolkien fan currently alive—had a cameo in it. So I kept my eyes peeled, and at one point after the dwarves arrived in Lake-town, I was pretty sure that I spotted him as an eye patch-bedecked spy. Like all good cameos, it was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, though, so I wasn’t totally sure I was correct.

But hey, guess what? We’ve got proof now, thanks to the glory that is reddit! The image seen below showed up on the content sharing community’s r/movies subreddit a few days ago—and I would just like to take this moment to say that I was right after all. Ready? Here it is:

Definitely Colbert! And just for the funny, here it is in GIF form (because there’s nothing that a GIF can’t make better):

Voila!

And now we return you to your regularly scheduled programming. Happy New Year’s Eve, Bettys!
