Behind the scenes[]

  • Feldur Hook was portrayed by Stephen Colbert in a cameo in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, along with his wife and two sons.
  • Colbert was a long-time fan of Tolkien's work and was able to read Elvish. In the beginning stages of him announcing to appear in a disclosed cameo, he originally thought that he was going to be in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey as an Elf with no dialogue, but he didn't got the role. But prior to the first film coming out, Colbert had interviewed Ian McKellen and Martin Freeman on his show and discussed and promoted them on the film and both stars ended up seeing just how huge a Tolkien fan Colbert really was.
