Stephen Colbert Interviews Elijah Wood and Cannot Help But Bring Up LOTR [Video]


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.

    This gives me all sorts of happies. I love it when Stephen gets all Silmarillion on people. I heard a story where he was actually so excited at the premiere of Return of the King he was running in circles around the theater, and I wasn’t at all shocked. “I know things about that movie that…I want to broadcast…”

    You can tell the exact moment he has a nerd boner, “Damn that is awesome.”

    My husband and I had so much fun watching him nerd out. Seeing that the other night, I knew The Mary Sue would link it :)

    I’ve already told my fiancée that I’d be willing to trade our firstborn (when we have one) for an authentic copy of Sting.

    He said only if he gets to use it too. I think that is fair.

    Colbert is way to adorable. I need more of him in my life!
