    Stephen Colbert is a notably giant nerd, but call me a cynic: I didn't think the news of a new Ms. Marvel would ping on his radar. Of course, I'm quite happy (and amused) to be wrong.

    Basic cable companies are attempting to convince the FCC that the current standard of what can be said and must be bleeped on television is outdated, restrictive, and in many cases just doesn't really make a lot of sense. Allow Mr. Colbert and special guest Mr. Laurie to demonstrate. Don't forget to pick up your dry cleaning, Stephen.

  3. Stephen Colbert Crashes Peter Jackson’s The Desolation of Smaug Preview to Grill the Director About Elvish Hierarchy [VIDEO]

    Questions! Questions That Need Answering

    Following the home video release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Peter Jackson held a live video event where he spilled some details about The Desolation of Smaug. In this excerpt, Stephen Colbert just couldn't stop himself from popping up to ensure that he's getting the elves right. You know nothing, Peter Jackson. There's some actual information about Desolation of Smaug in here, too. And a bit of Tauriel. And some Billy Boyd! Hi there, Pippin.

  4. Watch James Franco Get Utterly Schooled Trying to Out-Geek Stephen Colbert On Tolkien [VIDEO]

    Questions! Questions That Need Answering

    James Franco was on The Colbert Report last night to promote Oz the Great and Powerful. And the Oz portion of his interview is fine. But if you skip to 5:19 you can see the good stuff: Franco tried to tried to trip up Colbert—who is the biggest Tolkien geek Peter Jackson has ever met, if you'll remember—with a question about The Silmarillion. The result is hilarious. James Franco, you sweet summer child. One does not simply challenge Stephen Colbert on his Tolkien knowledge.

  6. Ian McKellen Kicks Off The Colbert Report’s Hobbit Week, and a Puppy for Everyone Else

    Questions! Questions That Need Answering

    The Colbert Report is going Hobbit themed all this week, so lets be honest: we're probably going to be posting every interview he does. So, like when Doctor Who was running Pond Life every day for a week, we'll package the clips with cute videos for everyone else. Everybody likes cute videos. Only some people like videos where Ian McKellen says that Gandalf is more powerful than Magneto, though there should probably be more of them.

  7. Says Jackson: “I Have Never Met a Bigger Tolkien Geek in My Life.”

    Not all that glitters is gold

    Philippa Boyens is our resident Tolkien expert, and when Stephen came down to visit the set, we put him head to head with Philippa on a Tolkien quiz - and Stephen triumphed. I have to say, his encyclopedic knowledge of Tolkien is spectacular, and points to a deprived childhood in some respects. -- Peter Jackson, speaking of Stephen Colbert, who was recently invited to visit the set of The Hobbit films in New Zealand. As for that rumored and possibly confirmed cameo for the fake news anchor, Jackson said that "it's yet to be confirmed or denied." Previously in The Hobbit

    Watch as Stephen Colbert points out that since Merida from Brave had the courage to resist an arranged marriage she didn't want, she must be a lesbian, and thus a pawn of Pixar's Gay Agenda. You know, because challenging traditional gender roles makes you gay. All joking aside, it's actually a pretty common interpretation of Brave. That's not to say it would be awful if Merida were gay (it would be awesome) it's just that it misses the point of the movie -- all girls, gay, straight, or otherwise, should be able to choose their own destiny. Perhaps no one got the memo about Merida putting off marriage until she actually figured out who she loved? (via Colbert Nation.)

  11. Ladies, Let’s Talk About What a Sexy Woman That Stephen Colbert Is

    If we got angry about this kind of thing we'd be angry all the time

    After winning a massive write-in campaign, Stephen Colbert has found himself on Maxim's "Definitive List of the World's Most Beautiful Women," the Hot 100. You might be asking yourself why Colbert, who is part of the male species, and, therefore, not a woman, is being listed on such a list. Well, you have to ask yourself something else: When you look at Stephen Colbert, is his gender all you see? Is your mind that closed?

  12. Stephen Colbert Makes Maxim’s 2012 Top 100 Hot Women List

    Beating out the likes of Internet and real-life sensation Christina Hendricks, as well as other famous gorgeous female celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Kat Dennings, and Sofia Vergara, Stephen Colbert made it onto Maxim's 2012 top 100 hot women list. Yes, Stephen Colbert is a man. Possibly the man after his inclusion on a female-only beauty list.

    When news of Maurice Sendak's death spread earlier this week, the video most often linked (and for good reason) was a recent interview he'd done with Stephen Colbert. Last night the Colbert Report kindly aired several previously unseen clips from the segment that were edited out. They're pretty special. (If anybody finds a video for international folks, please leave it in the comments.) (via io9.)

    Yeah, don't imply that amphibians would have a particular insight into Newt Gingrich. Come on, Stephen. Also can I simply express admiration that the Colbert Report writers remember fondly both Guy Smiley and Kermit's early history as Sesame Street's premiere investigative reporter. (via Bleeding Cool, who also have a guide on how to watch this video if you're not in the US.)

    Things We Saw Today

    Okay, you guys: I haven't finished the second book in The Hunger Games trilogy yet, so I am admitting openly to you that I didn't read this entire post because it warned me of spoilers. However, I know enough to tell you that V. Arrow, who wrote the upcoming The Panem Companion: An Unofficial Guide to Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games, is the woman responsible for this map of Panem and its districts. (via io9)

  16. Roseanne Will Run for President As a Green Party Candidate, Changing Nothing About the Current Presidential Race

    and let it be known

    Comedian Roseanne Barr has filed paperwork to run for the President of the United States as a candidate of the Green Party. If you're wondering what this will mean for the presidential race, you may stop now. It means nothing. Barr is really running symbolically, to get her point across, much the way Stephen Colbert did in South Carolina. Except Colbert actually had a lesson to teach us about why everything is wrong with campaign finance. Roseanne just has strong opinions on Twitter. Hey, maybe I should run for President.

  17. Stephen Colbert’s Interview With Maurice Sendak Is As Awesome As You Heard It Was [Video]

    Wise Words

    You may have heard about the two-part interview that Stephen Colbert conducted with author/illustrator Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are). You may have also heard that it was pretty awesome, and everything you've heard is correct. We've posted both parts here, and we invite you to join this highly intellectual discussion on who Sendak really writes for and his opinions on one of the current presidential candidates. If we'd been a fly on the wall for this, we would have buzzed around Maurice Sendak just to see what kind of curmudgeonly reaction he'd have. Part 2 appears after the jump.

    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. (via Nerd Bastards)

    While appearing on The Colbert Report to promote his new country music album (!), Jeff Bridges went on a short rift to quickly promote Summer's Eve products. Because he cares. Stephen Colbert has also discussed Summer's Eve products on his show, mostly because it had a really stupid ad campaign. We, "Women," endorse Jeff Bridges as our official spokesdude for Summer's Eve products. No more stupid fist puppets depicting racial stereotypes. Just Jeff Bridges. Pleaseandthankyou. (Splitsider)
