The Hobbit Week on The Colbert Report
Starting on Monday (December 3) to Thursday (Dec. 6), The Colbert Report will have The Hobbit week to help promote An Unexpected Journey. The news doesn't come as a surprise as Stephen Colbert is a huge fan of Tolkien (can speak elvish) and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, making frequent references (for TV anyway) to the movies on his show. Also he was spotted on The Hobbit set and rumored to have a cameo in the movie. Planned guests include Ian McKellan (Dec. 3), Martin Freeman (Dec. 4), Peter Jackson (Dec. 5), and Andy Serkis (Dec. 6). I am sure he has more then just guests planned for the week as this is his chance to just unabashedly geek out.
