Watch Stephen Colbert Answer Lord of the Rings Questions

Every night on The Late Show, Stephen Colbert answers questions from the audience, and when they're about The Lord of the Rings or any other works by J.R.R. Tolkien, prepare to get school because you know he will give the most geeked-out answers that only a true Tolkien expert can deliver. This video highlights some of those moments. Colbert even included a note regarding Valar: "I meant to say 'quasi-gods', not 'demi-gods'. 


Of course, this isn't the first time Colbert showed off his expertise in Tolkien's lore. Here's a video of Colbert schooling James Franco about the Valar in The Silmarillion.
