11. Stephen Colbert – Tolkien
There is no denying that Stephen Colbert is a brilliant man, but he puts his brain to use in strange ways. He is apparently a huge Tolkien fan and knows more about Tolkien’s works than most experts. He even visited the set of Lord of the Rings and challenged the onsite expert, Philippa Boyens, to a Tolkien quiz …; and won. His geek outs over the books and movies are legendary among fans of the franchise.
