When it comes to secretly being a big geek, few celebrities are less secret about it than Stephen Colbert, who frequently makes mention of his nerdy tendencies on his hit TV series "The Colbert Report." Not only has Colbert spent a great deal of time playing Dungeons and Dragons, for instance, he's also gone so far as to learn how to read the version of Elvish created by J.R.R. Tolkien for "The Lord of the Rings." The guy is hardcore.
And now, according to a new interview in Playboy, it looks like Colbert will finally get to put that talent to good use, as he's going to be making a cameo in Peter Jackson's upcoming adaptation of "The Hobbit." Get More »

Documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim learned this firsthand when he appeared as a guest on "The Colbert Report" to promote his new film, "Waiting For Superman."
While Guggenheim's film has been praised by critics and audiences alike for exposing what could be interpreted as the incompetence of the American public school system, Colbert (rather unsurprisingly) didn't give his guest an easy time of it, asking the hard questions that put the "An Inconvenient Truth" director on the spot.
Comedy Central has posted the entire episode of "The Colbert Report" that aired on Oct. 7.
