Sean Astin made an appearance on The Late Show on Wednesday evening (November 8) and met the man who is famously known as the number one Lord of the Rings fan… host Stephen Colbert!

“You are my favorite character in my favorite movie. I am— I don’t know what— how to describe how excited I am to meet you right now,” Stephen told the 46-year-old actor, who played Samwise Gamgee in the trilogy.

Stephen then told the audience that Sean and him actually met briefly during rehearsals first. Stephen described the situation saying, “I was trying to rehearse it, you walked out just to say hi in your underwear. And— hey! I gotta tell you— I gotta tell you, for me, it’s like I’m the cheerleader meeting the captain of the football team.”

“The reason I did that, come out to see you like that, my 15-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, begged me not to do anything to embarrass the family,” Sean revealed before continuing to embarrass his daughter even further by giving her a shout out on national television, saying, “Elizabeth, I love you!”

Stephen and Sean spent most of their time talking about Lord of the Rings instead of his role in Stranger Things 2, which was only mentioned briefly – Watch below!

Sean Astin On Amazon's Potential 'Lord of the Rings' TV Series: 'Intriguing'

Sean Astin is weighing in on the recent news that Amazon Studios is set to develop a television series based on the beloved novels of Lord of the Rings.

“I saw that the other day, and I thought that was intriguing,” the 46-year-old Stranger Things 2 star, who starred as Samwise Gamgee in Lord of the Rings series, expressed while visiting EW Radio at SiriusXM on Tuesday (November 7) in New York City.

“I’ve been saying for 15 years that maybe like 12 years after Lord of the Rings came out, that it would get remade. And people always said, ‘Oh no, it’ll never get remade! It’s a classic! They could never top it!’ And I’m like, ‘No, it’ll get remade. It’s a massive story! The characters are so beloved,” Sean added about his character. “When I saw the Amazon thing, that didn’t even occur to me. I just sort of thought, ‘What would it be like to see the next Sam there?’ I think it’s an intriguing idea [but] the devil’s in the details. How would they do it? How? Who?’”
