Stephen sat down with Smaug the dragon from ‘The Hobbit’ and it was a huge success — especially considering the talk show host didn’t get eaten alive by his evil guest! Watch the hilarious interview right here!
We may not be in Middle-earth but Smaug is in the house! Stephen Colbert asked the fire-breathing worm a line of hysterical questions during the Dec. 11 episode of The Colbert Report, reminding us just how much we’re going to miss the comedian when his show wraps on Dec. 18.
Stephen Colbert & Smaug The Dragon From ‘The Hobbit’: See Their Hilarious Interview
“I want you to know that I am not intimidated by you even though you have a reputation as a tough interview, because you often eat the host,” a clearly terrified Stephen says at the beginning of this hilarious clip.
Thankfully, Smaug reassures Stephen, “You needn’t worry. You’re my last interview of the day. I’ve already filled up on the ladies of The View, and my weren’t they a feast?”
Guess it was Stephen’s lucky day! By the way, did you know that Stephen and Smaug have a lot in common? As the host points out, “We both live in gated communities and we’re both fiscal conservatives who sleep on giant piles of money.”
But despite Smaug’s impressive lifestyle and resume, he admits that it’s tough for him to get good roles because of all the ” typical liberal Hollywood bias.” Just don’t accuse him of playing the “dragon card” because that didn’t go so well for Stephen!
