Stephen Colbert boasts some seriously impressive knowledge of Tolkien trivia. In a segment on The Colbert Report last night, actor James Franco challeneged Colbert to name just two of the Valar. Colbert responded by rattling off Varda, Manwë, Aulë, Oromë and a few others — and their domains — without breaking sweat.
I reckon he could give our Tolkien trivia-master Elrond a run for his money.
Anyway, here are some links to the segment. Enjoy!
