Did you catch that cameo in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug?

Dec. 30, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Now this isn't exactly a spoiler because the person in particular said that they were going to have a cameo in THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG. However, maybe someone didn't know and would like to be pleasantly surprised so I will offer up a buffer before showing you who nabbed that certain cameo.

Here's the buffer. It's pretty nice.

Sorry I didn't have a sexier photo of Tauriel wearing something like Natalie Portman wore in YOUR HIGHNESS but I tried.

That said, the cameo was none other than Stephen Colbert and family. The actor and host of COLBERT NATION is a massive fan of all things J.R.R. Tolkien. If you didn't see him and want the info on where to spot him, here it is (thanks to user royal_dump):

Okay, it's right as the dwarves are sneaking into Laketown. Bard's son stops them and says that there are spys watching the house. Shortly after it shows Bard and his Son walking alone and the camera pans to the right and shows Stephen looking at them and he turns his head and his eyepatch falls down.

Enjoy Colbert below!:

I was looking everywhere during the Laketown scenes and didn't spot him! Can't believe I didn't recognise him!

The only cameo I noticed was right at the start when they show the prancing pony sign and pan down Peter Jackson walks in front of the camera and takes a bite of a carrot and walks away

I hope that one day he gets to play a live-action version of the president from Monsters vs. Aliens. He was hilarious in that. Perhaps a movie about how the Stephen Colbert of the Colbert report successfully wins the presidency.

He's a lock to win the Oscar for best cameo this year.

Eye patch gag

That eye patch gag is a great way to separate him from just another extra on the set so you'll notice him better
