Stephen Colbert to Cameo in ‘The Hobbit’ Is By Far the Craziest Rumor of the Day

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!

New Zealand is pretty proud that Peter Jackson and his Warner Bros. team chose the country's landscapes to house production of 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit' films. We would be too, but probably not to the extent of the New Zealanders.

In a similar fashion to the US releasing those commemorative but completely usable state-themed quarters years back, New Zealand is about to make 'Hobbit' coins a legitimate form of currency in honor of 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey's' premiere.

‘The Hobbit’ Releases Yet Another Poster — This Time It’s Scrolling

The folks behind 'The Hobbit' haven't been holding back on the poster front. Back in the days of San Diego Comic-Con, director Peter Jackson released the first official poster and image of Gandalf in this 'Lord of the Rings' prequel trilogy, and since there have been a couple more -- one featuring the young Bilbo and the other highlighting his dwarven companions.

Too bad none of them really gave any clue as to what to expect from the upcoming 'Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,' aside from that first scrolling banner that showcased 10 scenes from the flick, of course. Now, Warner Bros. has once again come up short with the reveals with its new 'Hobbit' scrolling banner featuring the entire group.
