During James Franco's appearance on 'The Colbert Report' he managed to get into an intense argument with Stephen Colbert over who had been the bigger fan of 'Lord of the Rings' author J.R.R. Tolkien growing up.

"I hear that you were a big Tolkien fan," Franco told Colbert. "I was the biggest Tolkien fan."

But Colbert rose Franco's challenge with gusto.
