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.

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.
