Stephen Colbert really loves J.R.R. Tolkien, and he will pretend to be interested in Happy Feet 2 for as long as he can manage until he starts talking to last night’s guest Elijah Wood about both Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. He tried, you guys. Seriously. But alas! Elijah Wood was just so incredibly “right there in front of him,” and the discussion — or as much of the discussion that he was allowed to have, since Stephen Colbert knows things about The Hobbit that he “wants to broadcast” but cannot — was forced to commence, accompanied by the daintiest sword fight that ever took place. (Because those things are authentic, people.)
Oh, and something about a penguin movie.
