Sean Astin didn’t know anything about LOTR when he took the role of Samwise Gamgee

From the Shire to Hawkins, Sean Astin steals our hearts every time.

Sean Astin (a.k.a. Samwise Gamgee) went on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ and met the man who is quite possibly his number one fan… Stephen Colbert.

Turns out when Astin’s agent called him about the part of Samwise Gamgee, Astin thought he would be doing an adaptation of The Phantom Tollbooth

Now he plays the dorkily awesome Bob in ‘Stranger Things 2,’ so we all have something new to love about Sean Astin.
