Colbert is a big Lord of the Rings fan who had a cameo as "Laketown spy" in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, based on Tolkien's novel The Hobbit. He spoofed the character Aragorn (Mortensen) on The Late Show in 2019.

Amazon Prime Video is developing a new series based in the Lord of the Rings universe. The show is set thousands of years before The Hobbit and will premiere Sept. 2, 2022.
