Stephen Colbert is a die-hard J.R.R. Tolkien fan, and last fall we learned that he would have a cameo somewhere in The Hobbit trilogy. Elf-eyed viewers may have spotted him in The Desolation of Smaug, but in case you missed it, a fan on reddit has screengrabbed and GIF’d the comedian’s cameo. It’s really nice that not only Colbert but also his wife and two sons got to be in the movie. The Colbert clan can be seen when Bard (Luke Evans) is sneaking into Laketown, and his son warns him about spies. Congratulations, Laketown. You’re now part of the Colbert Nation.

And here’s a redditor’s more detailed description of the scene:
Okay, it’s right as the dwarves are sneaking into Laketown. Bard’s son stops them and says that there are spys [sic] watching the house. Shortly after it shows Bard and his Son walking alone and the camera pans to the right and shows Stephen looking at them and he turns his head and his eyepatch falls down.
