Empire magazine reports that Stephen Colbert has hinted he may have a cameo role in ‘The Hobbit’.
Colbert, who is a self-professed Tolkien geek, was invited down to New Zealand by Sir Peter Jackson for a set visit.
“”I flew out and watched them shoot some scenes and went to some locations,” he explains of the trip. “I saw a 25-minute cut, and it was amazing. Jackson knows I’m a big fan of the films.”
The writer adds: As any good journalist would, the interviewer wonders whether there isn’t more to this than meets the eye. Could, for instance, Colbert be cameoing in the movie? “Could be,” replies the comedian enigmatically.
Hmmm, perhaps he can moderate between Bard and the Mayor of Lake-town!
