He’s best-known for cracking up audiences on his hit Comedy Central program, but Stephen Colbert can also hold his own in an epic film.

The “Colbert Report” star has a super-quick cameo in the new Peter Jackson flick “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” though if you blink you might miss it.

In 2012, Colbert mentioned that he visited the set of the movie during his interview with Playboy, and the rumors of a bit part were also confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter.

And now there’s even a GIF of Stephen in his hooded Middle-Earth getup. Colbert appears in the second half of the film after Bilbo’s arrival in Laketown.
