Did You Forget That Stephen Colbert Had a Smaug Cameo? Here It Is


We’ve known that King Nerd Stephen Colbert managed to bag a cameo in one of The Hobbit movies for quite a while now, but I completely forgot to keep an eye out for him when I went to see it. If you’re like me, you might appreciate these screenshots put together by ScreenSlam.

    It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to know he got a cameo. It’s just always nice to see an ubernerd get to ascend like that.

    Holy crap, I completely forgot he got a cameo. Is he in Lake Town?

  • Madeleine Odowichuk

    Either Lake Town or Bree. I thought I also saw Peter Jackson with his trademark carrot in Bree.

  • Katie Frederick

    Yep, Lake Town. He’s one of the townsfolk spying on Bard.

    Excellent. This calls for a second viewing.

    Yes!! I actually remembered that scene, loved the fake eyepatch on the spy! Did NOT see it was Colbert despite being an überfan of his. Good work blending into the part Stephen.
    Cameos like this is the best – where you don’t really see it until it’s pointed out. I missed Jackson’s cameo first too, though my husband spotted him in Bree,
