In case you haven’t noticed, Stephen Colbert is a big nerd.
Not only is he the biggest Star Wars fan, he’s no slouch when it comes to Tolkien, either. So he was a perfect match when Entertainment Weekly was looking for someone to write an article in celebration of Peter Jackson’s last Hobbit movie.
