Stephen Colbert Says He Frightened Everyone While Filming 'The Hobbit'

Stephen Colbert is the one fan to rule them all.

While on "Late Night," Colbert told host Seth Meyers that he is the ultimate "Lord of the Rings" fan and had a "peak geek" moment while making a cameo in "The Hobbit."

The future "Late Show" host recalled how he got a message from Peter Jackson asking him to make an appearance in the movie and how he was so enthusiastic that he thinks he frightened everyone.

A day may come when the hilarity of Colbert fails … but it is definitely not this day.

"Late Night with Seth Meyers" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
