Stephen Colbert And His Entire Family Had Adorable Cameos In 'The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug'

You all saw Peter Jackson's cameos in the original Lord Of The Rings trilogy, right?


Is that yellowface in Return Of The King, PJ? Oh my. The director also popped up as a dwarf in the first Hobbit film and was back as his Bree character from Fellowship in The Hobbit 2: The Smaugening. (That guy really likes his carrots.) But also joining him is adorable Tolkien dork, Stephen Colbert.

Colbert (in full hobbit regalia) had previously announced that his cameo would be in the Lake Town sequence so an eagle-eyed viewer spotted both him and the rest of his family. Here they are in blurry motion:




And in sharper relief:


I'm holding out for Jon Stewart as an eagle in the third installment.

    I thought the eye patch flip was a weird shot, and now I get why.

    I joked with my husband that we had to down a shot every time Jackson or his spawn showed up on screen. We were shitfaced before the first 5 minutes of the Hobbit was over.

    We saw the Hobbit yesterday, and I was so incredibly disappointed that I don't even think I will bother with the third installment.

    Jackson had a cameo right in the beginning of the Hobbit 2. Really cool to see Stephen Colbert and family in there.

    His daughter did too, I think. I'm fairly sure she was the tavern girl that serves Thorin when he meets Gandalf.

    Yay! Photographic proof! I was just telling an in-law last night that Colbert was in Hobbit 2.

    I love you Stephen!
