This past December marked the 15th anniversary of Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the first chapter in one of the greatest film trilogies of all time. Since that’s not exactly a celebratory, milestone anniversary, there wasn’t much pomp and circumstance. But a little over a month later, a mini-reunion of some of the members of the fellowship has taken place.
In what appears to be an impromptu reunion, Aragon (Viggo Mortensen), Frodo (Elijah Wood), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd) all got together for a meal, and they took some time to snap a few pictures of the occasion as well. Check out the Lord of the Rings reunion photo after the jump. Read More »

It’s no secret that Stephen Colbert is a huge fan of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. The man even interviewed Smaug back when he still had The Colbert Report on Comedy Central as part of an entire week of guests centered around the release of one of the chapters of The Hobbit. And now even over at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, he’s still getting admirably geeky about Tolkien’s fantasy stories from Middle-Earth.
For those who don’t know, before an episode of a late night talk show is recorded, or any program with a live audience for that matter, there’s a warm-up so the crowd is ready to have a good time. Usually a stand-up comedian comes out to tell some jokes and talk to the audience just to get them ready for the show. Then the star of the show comes out for a bit to mingle with the crowd, usually taking questions from the audience. Stephen Colbert consistently gets nerdy questions about Lord of the Rings, and you can see his passionate responses after the jump. Read More »
