Stephen Colbert -- both host of the Colbert Report and expert of Middle-earth knowledge -- is listed on IMDB's page of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug as "Laketown Spy." 

Colbert's knowledge of J.R.R. Tolkien's works are well-documented. He's the ultimate Tolkien fan. On numerous occasions, he's flexed his Tolkien brain power against the likes of James Franco and Peter Jackson. He's such a Tolkien fanboy that his wife and his two sons -- Evelyn, Peter and John -- are also listed in the cast for Laketown Spy.

Or here he is having a Tolkien showdown with James Franco...
