Stephen Colbert and Elijah Wood cross swords Can't Post

Stephen Colbert is an unabashed popular-culture geek and frequently drops his Middle-earth knowledge and displays various swords, rings and LOTR stuff on his show The Colbert Report. So when he had Elijah Wood on to chat about Happy Feet 2 he "unexpectedly" dropped into a conversation about the currently filming Hobbit movies and made it clear that he has visited the set and been privy to secrets and then "duels" with Wood. Is he steeped enough in Tolkien pop-culture to someday drop a TORn reference? In the meantime, enjoy the clip! Thanks to spy Esme, the first of many to drop that little gem to us at Spymaster@theonering.net.

It's kinda cool [In reply to] Can't Post

... to see Colbert geeking out. Did you see him gushing as the camera pulled back at the end of the interview?

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

Maybe he's here, using his ring of power to stay invisible! // [In reply to] Can't Post

Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?

A man may do both. For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it under the light of day!

This was a first [In reply to] Can't Post

I watch Colbert regularly and this is probably the first time I've seen him come so close to breaking character.
He's interviewed writers, scientists, philosophers, political figures, etc.and he always sticks to his persona, but with Elijah, Colbert was almost like a kidSmile
