Helpful life hack: Devote the majority of your life to passionately reading and loving a literary franchise, and then convince your late-show show that you have to visit the place the movie adaptations were filmed. Seems simple to us! Stephen Colbert, a noted fanboy of anything remotely associated with Lord of the Rings, has taken The Late Show to New Zealand for a week of shows — and all of the episodes will begin airing on Monday, November 18. Among other activities, Colbert secured a coveted interview with Peter Jackson and they’ll be filming a LoTR “spinoff” together (one does not simply film a spinoff), and he’ll also do segments with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Lucy Lawless, Bret McKenzie, and the country’s national rugby team. My precious, precious Colbert, how fun this will be.
