This week Stephen Colbert did some "Lord of the Rings" cosplay and wrote about the new movie "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" as a guest editor at "Entertainment Weekly."
On Thursday night, things got even weirder.
Smaug the dragon (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) stopped by his set for a chat – or at least his massive head did.
In the 7-minute interview we learn some important things: that he has eaten the ladies of "The View," he was offered a role on "Sherlock" but turned it down because he said hates that "hack" Cumberbatch, he supports stand-your-ground laws (especially when it comes to Bilbo Baggins) and he supports Rand Paul for president in 2016.
He also slammed some of the other big dragons in TV and movies – including Daenerys' three children and Toothless from "How to Train Your Dragon."
