As you might have heard yesterday, next week is The Hobbit Week on The Colbert Report, as Stephen welcomes Sir Ian McKellan on Monday, Martin Freeman on Tuesday, Andy Serkis on Wednesday and Peter Jackson on Thursday. You might know them better by their respective Hobbit characters, Yoda, Voldemort, Sulu and Morpheus.
In the meantime, let’s prepare for the weeklong Tolkien-fest with some classic Middle Earthian moments from The Report. First up, click the gif to watch Stephen put the literary smackdown on fellow LOTR-head James Franco.
Also, Ian McKellen as Gandalf and Peter Jackson giving direction on set.
