See Stephen Colbert Become Bilbo, Legolas, and Gandalf For ‘Hobbit’-Themed Photo Shoot (Video)
  |  @   |  

The Colbert Report host and The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings fanatic Stephen Colbert took part in a Hobbit-themed photo shoot for Entertainment Weekly recently.

Colbert received the full makeup and costume treatment to become Bilbo, Legolas, and Gandalf for the shoot. You can see a video of him being transformed into all three characters below.

Of the shoot, Colbert said:

“Just me and a few of my friends got together to play dress-“¨up. Lucky for me, my “˜friends’ are the wardrobe department for The Hobbit. The original costumes and wigs were flown in from New Zealand just for me. They didn’t even fly the costumes out of New Zealand for the actors! They had to wear them there!”
