The Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert is set to make a cameo in one of the second two The Hobbit movies. All that is known is that his role will not be featured in the first movie, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, although it isn't specified if he will appear in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug or The Hobbit: There and Back Again.

Here's what the comedian had to say about his trip to the set last year.

"Peter Jackson invited me to the set last year. I flew out and watched them shoot some scenes and went to some locations. I saw a 25-minute cut, and it was amazing. Jackson knows I'm a big fan of the films."

It isn't known if he will portray a featured character or just a background role. The comedian is a big fan of the entire J.R.R. Tolkien novel series, and he reportedly reads Elvish as well.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was released December 14th, 2012.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was released December 13th, 2013.

The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies was released December 17th, 2014.
