“Lords of the Rings” Cast Celebrate 20 Years of “Fellowship of the Ring” by Rapping with Killer Mike and Method Man
As you do.
When you think of Lord of the Rings, you think of rap music, right? Well, that seems like the case for Stephen Colbert. This Sunday marks the 20th anniversary of the first movie of the Peter Jackson–directed franchise. But because it’s also Christmas next week, Colbert will be on his holiday break, which means that he won’t have a way to celebrate the trilogy on his show. Instead, he thought it would be a great idea to celebrate The Fellowship of the Ring a bit early by featuring stars of the original cast—Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Hugo Weaving, Orlando Bloom, and Andy Serkis—rapping alongside Killer Mike and Method Man.
I mean, it’s nothing compared to this classic, but if you want to see some of your favorite elves and hobbits rap then this is a video for you. Basically they shit on every major movie from The Godfather to the Pitch Perfect and Twilight series—both of which feature Anna Kendrick, who then makes a few annoyed appearances here. It’s all very shocking and odd!
