Elijah Wood and Stephen Colbert Compare 'LOTR' Sting Swords (VIDEO)

Elijah Wood, 'The Colbert Report'Elijah Wood may have come on to 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central) to promote his work on 'Happy Feet Two,' but he knew that the conversation would eventually make its way to Middle Earth. Stephen Colbert is absolutely one of the biggest 'Lord of the Rings' fans on the planet.

As a treat, Wood brought one of the actual Sting swords he used during the filming of the trilogy, but of course Colbert already has one, presented to him by director Peter Jackson. So the two squared off in an impossible Sting vs. Sting battle. It's too bad no orcs were nearby so both swords could glow.

Of course, after blowing their budget on Colbert's disappearing and reappearing act to get to the interview table, the show probably didn't have the money to make the effect happen. True fans, though, were doubly thwarted as Colbert and Wood apparently continued their conversation after the cameras stopped about what they saw on the set of the new 'Hobbit' films in New Zealand.
