Television comedian/fake pundit Stephen Colbert will appear in The Hobbit trilogy of movies.

Colbert won't be in the first movie in the Hobbit series, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but will show up in either the second flick (The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug) or the third (The Hobbit: There and Back Again).

No word yet on whether Colbert, the host of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report, will appear as a featured cameo type situation or is more of a background extra. I'd bet the former, with an Elvish Colbert showing up long enough for a single line, delivered in the native tongue of Middle Earth's elves -- Colbert is reportedly such a huge Tolkien fan, he speaks the language.

The unlikely acting role was revealed in a Playboy interview with Colbert who said:

"Peter Jackson invited me to the set last year. I flew out and watched them shoot some scenes and went to some locations. I saw a 25-minute cut, and it was amazing. Jackson knows I'm a big fan of the films."

When asked "Are you telling us you're in the Hobbit movie?" Colbert responded. "Could be."
