Elijah Wood stopped by The Colbert Report last night to promote the animated sequel, Happy Feet Two, for which he voices the lead character Mumble. Colbert joked about the benefit of global warming for penguins as well as the “extensive Antarctic training” Wood had to endure for the film, but after a couple of minutes Colbert could no longer resist letting his inner fanboy show and brought up Peter Jackson’s upcoming adaptation of The Hobbit which Wood recently filmed a cameo for. He and Colbert shared their frustration with not being able to discuss any of the secrets they learned on the set of the Lord of the Rings prequel, and then had a brief but fun sword fight with their identical props of the sword “Sting”.
