The Hobbit is journeying over to The Colbert Report.
Plenty of folks are certainly excited about the release of the first installment in director Peter Jackson's planned trilogy of J.R.R. Tolkien's book, but perhaps no one more than Stephen Colbert, who is devoting a whole week of his show to the film.
Speaking Elvish (of course!), Colbert said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly: "Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo ("A star shines upon the hour of our meeting")...I mean that sincerely."
Colbert has expressed his fondness for all things Middle-earth on his show in the past, which reportedly led Jackson to give him a small role in a future Hobbit movie.
Meanwhile, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens Dec. 14.
