Hobbits invade the 'Today Show' and 'The Colbert Report'

There's no escaping the hobbits or "The Hobbit" now, as one of the most anticipated films of the decade approaches, and we'll take this happy opportunity to steer you toward some interesting pieces and interviews of recent vintage.

Last night, "The Colbert Report" continued its all-Hobbit week with Andy Serkis; as "Ring"-nuts well know, he's the brilliant actor behind Gollum, and explains to the "Ring"-nuttiest of them all, Colbert, exactly the difference between performance capture and motion capture technology . . .
