Colbert and Tolkien: This Should be Interesting

Stephen Colbert reportedly will appear in Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit”.

In an online article, he talks about his long-standing love affair with the books:

 

“In some ways it was about escape. I think there’s absolute truth in escaping the reality of your present predicament.

And that can just be about being young. It doesn’t have to be tragedy. There’s a tragedy to being 13. Things are changing. Friends are changing. Your body is changing. You need to escape that.”

 

I can definitely relate to that. I picked up The Hobbit when I was about 11 years old to escape a largely unhappy childhood and it brought me such comfort to escape to a world of fantasy and beauty, albeit it also a world filled with frightening beings and danger.

I don’t know about you, but I’m a fan of both.

Tolkien and Colbert, that is.

I just wonder exactly what role he’ll play.

Wildly arrogant, misinformed and not-too-bright conservative fake pundit expounding on the positive characteristics of Smaug and why he might make a good leader?

I would see the movie just for that.
