[WATCH] Ian McKellen talks THE HOBBIT on THE COLBERT REPORT

Confessed Tolkien geek Stephen Colbert kicked off his week-long celebration of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on The Colbert Report tonight, showing off a Middle Earth-themed set and teasing his possible cameo in one of the films. Legendary thespian Ian McKellen (aka Gandalf the Grey) was tonight’s guest, and besides the much anticipated film he also discussed his role as a gay rights advocate, who would win in a fight between Magneto and Gandalf, and he even learned a few facts about his character from Colbert. It was a lively chat and I’m looking forward to more this week from Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis and Peter Jackson himself.
