As you're probably aware by now, Stephen Colbert of 'The Colbert Report' (and formerly of 'The Daily Show') is a huge fan of 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit,' so when given the chance to make a cameo in Peter Jackson's latest installment in the franchise, the satirical late night host jumped right on it. And thanks to the awesome power of the internet, you can now peep his cameo in 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' without leaving the comfort of your home!

In 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,' Ben Stiller plays an ordinary, average guy -- a little too ordinary and average perhaps. He's never really traveled or gone anywhere special, he's never done anything exceptional. He just lives his day-to-day, monotonous life without any real excitement, as alarmingly pointed out to him by an eHarmony tech support worker -- of all people -- in the latest clip.
