Holy Crap! Bret McKenzie Was In "Lord Of The Rings"?!

"My lady!"

Flight of the Conchords! The best thing to come out of New Zealand since...Vegemite? Is that from there?*

HBO

*A quick Google search has revealed that no, it is not.

Remember Bret?

HBO

I would say he was the cute one but they're both the cute one!!!!!!!!!

He's the mother flippin' Rhymenocerous!

HBO

His rhymes and records they don't get played because his records and rhymes they don't get made.

Anyway, last night he and fellow Conchord Jemaine were on the Late Show, and Stephen Colbert oh-so-causally reminded the audience that Bret had a role in the Lord of the Rings.

EXCUSE?!

You better believe I watched these films 382952835 times in middle school and I never ONCE recognized Elf Bret!

He's Lindir!!! A Rivendell elf! Friend to Lord Elrond!

New Line Cinema

Bret was hiding in PLAIN SIGHT. Acting is wild, y'all.

He's the one who tries to stop Liv Tyler-elf from running back to Aragorn in this iconic scene.

New Line Cinema

HOW FREAKING ELF-Y DOES HE LOOK? I am blown away.

GREAT ACTING, BRET.

New Line Cinema

A++!!!! 110%!!!!! :-D!!!!!!
