Stephen Colbert is a huge “Lord of the Rings” nerd, so for his cover shoot with Entertainment Weekly, he dressed up as three popular characters from the series.
He also wrote the cover story for the issue about the release of the final film from Peter Jackson, “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies.”
“For an awkward teenager, Middle-earth was a world I could escape to,” he writes. “Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth also gave me a world to escape to, but by the time his films came out, I was rich and famous and didn’t really want to escape my life anymore.
In case you missed it, Colbert had a cameo in “The Desolation of Smaug,” playing the “Lake-town spy.”
