‘The Hobbit’ Dragon Smaug Guests on ‘Colbert’ to Endorse Rand Paul, Bash Benedict Cumberbatch (Video)

He adds shots at co-stars Orlando Bloom and Martin Freeman, “The View,” “Game of Thrones” and Toothless from “How to Train Your Dragon”

“The Hobbit” dragon Smaug peeked his gigantic head into “The Colbert Report” studio Thursday to talk fiscal conservatism and blast Hollywood’s “liberal conservative bias.” Oh, he was also plugging a movie.

“It’s hard for conservatives to get good roles in this town,” the worm said of his type-casting as a villain. “That’s why Kelsey Grammar and I are always up for the same part.”

At one point, the future looked dicey for Stephen Colbert and his studio audience — but Smaug didn’t scarf down the Comedy Central host or his guests for one simple reason: “I’ve already filled up on the ladies of ‘The View,'” the lizard said of an earlier interview. “Weren’t they a feast.”

Smaug additionally lobbed insults at costars Orlando Bloom and Martin Freeman. Not finished, he added a shot at Benedict Cumberbatch, and also ripped the dragons from “Game of Thrones” and “How to Train Your Dragon.”

“Toothless?” Smaug asked aloud on the latter. “More like, Ball-less.”

Of other Hollywood and media interest, the dragon later quoted “There Will Be Blood” and made an at least semi-uncomfortable Trayvon Martin reference about Bilbo Baggins during his segment, before rolling a clip from new film “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.”

Smaug was sure to warn the audience that he hasn’t read the J. R. R. Tolkien books yet though — and made it clear that he is not in the market for any spoilers. That said, it doesn’t appear like it’s going to end well for the dragon.
