>>60648430>wait so this has been a decades long conspiracy to "cash in." You really believe he has been putting on a cynical cash grab act.
It's a shtick, all actors have one. Colbert plays up his appreciation for Tolkien and whatever to round out his performance and it pays dividends with cameos and merchandise sales.>If so, why hardcore nerds? there's far more money in literally anything else than a small subculture
I wouldn't say Colbert's performance was for hardcore nerds, but even if it was you do know hardcore nerds are whales right? Casuals don't blow huge wads on supplements, miniatures, spin-off novels or that shit.
