Is Stephen Colbert Now the ‘Lord Of The Rings’? [PHOTOS]
Is Stephen Colbert getting ready to visit Middle Earth? In an exclusive, and awesome, photo shoot with Entertainment Weekly, actor, comedian, writer and late night host Stephen Colbert dressed as characters from The Hobbit to celebrate the release of the final film of the trilogy.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies comes out December 17, so Entertainment Weekly invited Colbert to participate in this farewell photo shoot for an upcoming issue to pay tribute to the films and their characters. Being an avid fan of the books and their author, J.R.R. Tolkein, Colbert eagerly agreed.
You can see Colbert dressed as Bilbo the Hobbit, Gandalf the Wizard and Legolas the Elf jumping in the air, goofing around and even taking to the streets of New York. Colbert is clearly having a blast in his newfound roles as he helps us say goodbye to these epic fantasy films and their beloved characters, who were introduced to the world in 2001 with the release of the first Lord Of The Rings.
