How good, nay, exceptional is your Lord of the Rings trivia knowledge?
So OG trilogy stars Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd, members of the Fellowship and proud hosts of their own new podcast, decided to test Colbert on Tolkien’s beloved books, with a precious prize promised.
Who is Shelob’s mother and how did she die? Where exactly is the pivotal entmoot within Fangorn Forest? One of these extremely niche questions escapes Colbert’s deep knowledge.
“Ladies and gentlemen, stumped by Pippin!” announces Boyd.
Don’t worry, Colbert gets his revenge — with a question from director Peter Jackson himself.
