Stephen Colbert has been going around bragging about a so-called "breakout cameo" of his in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" for weeks, but everyone just sort of assumed it was typical Colbert tomfoolery. But it turns out that Stephen, who happens to be a total Tolkien geek, does actually appear in the movie! The folks over at Screen Slam have isolated his cameo for our viewing pleasure -- and it's a very brief but exceptionally well-acted moment.
