Fans of the original 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman' shorts from 'Rocky and His Friends' probably won't find much to like in this new trailer for the DreamWorks animated film. But, then again, they're probably a good 50 years older than the target audience for the new 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman' movie.

A few weeks ago, director Peter Jackson held an online Q&A and preview for the upcoming 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.' However, if you wanted to watch or take part, you had to have bought 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' on DVD or Blu-ray and followed the proper instructions (you know, typing in codes and such). Although the entire event remains an exclusive, Jackson has posted a six minute excerpt to YouTube, letting everyone get a taste of the what it was like and get a glimpse of the new Middle Earth adventure.

Tolkien fans around the world are preparing for the December 14 release of 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' in many different ways.  Some have gone back to painstakingly watch Peter Jackson's original 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy (even if it takes place afterward), while others continue gluing their own hair to prosthetic feet in preparation for attending the release in costume.  But how is life-long Tolkien fan Stephen Colbert preparing?  With a full week of 'The Colbert Report' dedicated to the film, and spotlighting its cast as guests!  Who will be in attendance?

While we lament that Steve Carell isn't around anymore to play off of his former 'The Daily Show' correspondent, tonight will mark one of the best 'The Office' castings to date, when 'The Colbert Report' host Stephen Colbert drops by Dunder-Mifflin as Andy's old band-mate Broccoli Rob for the NBC sitcom's Halloween episode 'Here Comes Treble.'  Of course, Colbert will have plenty of tension with fellow former co-star Ed Helms as well, so how would you like a first look?

We're finding out a lot about 'The Hobbit' movie this week, thanks to the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter. For instance, did you know Ian McKellen almost turned down the role of Gandalf for the next three Middle Earth-based movies? While all that's interesting to learn, our favorite 'Hobbit' fact actually pertains to a seemingly unrelated actor -- funnyman Stephen Colbert.
THR missed this little tid bit: the 'Colbert Report' host is obsessed with Tolkien. So much so, in fact, that he got to visit the set of 'An Unexpected Journey' in New Zealand, where -- get this -- he may or may not have shot a cameo appearance for the movie trilogy!

Can you say "casting announcement of the year?"  While 'The Office' officially returns tonight for its ninth, and final season (please don't remind us about 'The Farm') it's no secret that the upcoming year is bound to attract new and old guest stars alike, including some big names.  Well, if we don't yet know if Michael Scott will make the trek back to Dunder-Mifflin, how about Steve Carell's one-time 'Daily Show' co-star Stephen Colbert?  A victory for America, it is.

Huzzah, America!  After being around seemingly forever, it would seem that 'The Daily Show' will be around quite a while longer, with its current and arguably best host to date in place.  More than that, its sister show 'The Colbert Report' will be sticking around as well, but for how long?  Does either series have a shelf life, or does Comedy Central plan to keep them around indefinitely?

'The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show' was required viewing growing up as a kid and part of the reason it was so popular was because one of the segments was about a really smart dog and his time-traveling adventures with his owner. Now those adventures are coming to the big screen courtesy of Dreamworks Animation, and Stephen Colbert is a part of it.
