Martin Freeman hosted SNL this weekend, so of course there was a "Lord of the Rings"/"Office" mashup.

In one of the funnier sketches of the night, after saving Middle Earth, Bilbo Baggins starts working for Gandalf at a paper company alongside the pesky Gollum.

This week Stephen Colbert did some "Lord of the Rings" cosplay and wrote about the new movie "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" as a guest editor at "Entertainment Weekly."

On Thursday night, things got even weirder.

Smaug the dragon (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) stopped by his set for a chat – or at least his massive head did.

In the 7-minute interview we learn some important things: that he has eaten the ladies of "The View," he was offered a role on "Sherlock" but turned it down because he said hates that "hack" Cumberbatch, he supports stand-your-ground laws (especially when it comes to Bilbo Baggins) and he supports Rand Paul for president in 2016.

He also slammed some of the other big dragons in TV and movies – including Daenerys' three children and Toothless from "How to Train Your Dragon."

LEGO architects David Frank and Alice Finch teamed up to create this amazing masterpeice that lays out the elven outpost of Revendell from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The Brothers Brick recently interviewed the two builders on how the incredibly detailed structure came together.

The Brothers Brick: What did you struggle with the most?

Alice and David: One of the major challenges with this build was making the buildings truly fit into their setting. Usually when you design a building, you do just that — you do the structure first and then fit it into its setting. In this case, we did all the landscaping first, which involved some significant elevation change and quite a few waterfalls. And since it's on a total of 32 baseplates, we had to make sure that the joints were as invisible as possible — no small challenge when there are so many different elevations. (read more)
