Some of the dwarf actors are pretty young, but under heavy makeup no one notices I think...


Rob Kazinsky


Aidan Turner

But Fili and Kili who they play are supposed to be young dwarves. I bet the dwarf players will have lots of fun. Unless they'll get allergic reactions from latex like John Rhys-Davies did.

Are you sure about Hugo and Cate? I haven't heard news about them being confirmed... but I'd like to see them again.

I'm following two reliable news sources: TORN and COE, to hint where I get my info. Also, I think Ian is still negotiating his contract, so he will be in the movie and there's no reason for panic.

I never realized how exhausting the whole "getting going" process can be --- at least for those of us anxiously awaiting the final film. 

While I am optimistic I share the same caution as Enara. Keeping my fingers crossed.

So many things connected to this movie have been up in the air for so long, it's good to finally see some resolution.  And the biggest surprise is that they're making room for Frodo.

Elijah's role will be small but justified. i was worried that they would put him into the film just because, but apparently either Frodo will be reading the book to sam, or Bilbo will be reading the book to Frodo - i can see this working more as the film is still going to be in two parts (which i still think isnt really necessary!) and would be a nice way to begin and end each part.

It's quite enough for me.

Also... it's confirmed that Sir Ian McKellen will be playing Gandalf again, and Andy Serkis (Gollum!) will be aboard. It's rumored that original Bilbo (Sir Ian Holm) would be returning as well.

So we would be seeing both young and old Bilbo. And what a reunion!

The Hobbit press conference... (click the picture for video)



Saoirse Ronan has also been signed - what for exactly I don't know. But the worst rumours say that she would be warrior elf guard Mary Sue, Legolas's love interest. I doubt they would mess the story that much though.

There's a lot to take in, reading The Hobbit and not a dull moment.  Gandalf's introduction of the Dwarves to Bilbo was quite drawn out as was that entire evening.  I'll be very interested to see where they end the first movie.  I think where they lost Bilbo would be a good part.  And doing this in two parts should ensure that all the chapters in the book will be included.

considering what they done with the previous films I think they could of edited it better. If the hobbit gets a two part then i request they go back and re-shoot scenes in the previous films as there's alot in those books they missed out. each one should have been 2 parts if they included everything. The hobbit isnt even a long book in comparison.

Gosh...I don't remember reading about Leggies love interest!  Something tells me I better re-read the hobbit before the movie comes out. 

I am so looking forward to this movie!

I'm looking forward to the movie too but Legolas wasn't in The Hobbit.  Nor were any women that I recall.  don't know how this would play out. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From wikipedia.

Legolas was the son of Thranduil, King of the Woodland Realm of Northern Mirkwood,[1] who appears as "the Elvenking" in The Hobbit.[2]

Legolas has no love interest in the stories that Tolkien has written. Also, the rumour appears to be false:


Quote:
In her first public statements about her rumored role in "The Hobbit," actress Saoirse Ronan told IrishTimes.com:

"No, nothing has actually been confirmed yet. I'd love to get a role in The Hobbit. I think everybody in the world would like a role in The Hobbit."

Others think that if she gets a role, she might actually play Primula Brandybuck - Frodo's mother. After all, Drogo Baggins (his father) is already being cast. Both of Frodo's parents died when he was little, apparently in a boat accident.


Ryan Cage, the one in the role of Drogo.

Also, more fyi:

- The earthquake disaster in Christchurch, NZ didn't do any damage to the Hobbit production. Peter Jackson offered his aid for the city.
- Elf extras are being recruited atm.

It's terrible news about the Christchurch earthquake, whether or not it affected production of The Hobbit

RE:  Saorise Ronan's signing:  I read that she's been confirmed to play the elf princess Itaril. 

The name of the character wasn't immediately familiar to me so I did a quick google search... (now here's one for all you Tolkien nerds out there ; )... is Itaril otherwise known as "Idril" in the Silmarillion?

In any case, Saorise is a fantastic actress!  At least she was great in both Atonement and The Lovely Bones.
