Older Bilbo (Sir Ian Holm) is now confirmed to appear in the movie.

Rob Kazinsky (Fili) has left the cast for personal reasons - in PJ's vlog I saw a glimpse of him using a walking support - maybe he hurt himself somehow? Either way, they still have time to look for another dwarf actor to fill the spot.

Better luck for you in life now on, Rob...

The Hobbit is as physical a movie as LOTR's so the actors should all be relatively fit.  Although I'm sure the primary actors have stunt doubles, filming scenes with lots of re-takes can be hard on a body,

He told later that it's because of health issues. Shame, really, because he was really enthusiastic about the role and it showed. It was a dream of some kind for him.

Hugo Weaving has been spotted in Wellington buying vegetables. No one really knows why he's there, but it's assumed that he might be really in for playing Elrond again.

Also, Orlando bloom was asked about him returning to Wellington for filming Legolas. His answer was "I'm going to bet on it".

So there are you go, two very likely returning elves.

Is/ How is Drogo in this movie?

Also (according to the list) It seems they are breaking their own LOTR rules set down from the first films with Animals talking.

You might think this a small thing but to someone like me who loves the books this irritates me to no end! The Eagles and more importantly Gwaihir the Windlord spoke in the book and yet in the films they were just animals. Now we have voice actors for Smaug the dragon and Gwaihir the Windlord! what the hell?!

right now this movie does nothing but irritate me on some of the decisions made so far (IF they are true). But i live in hope that because its peter making it the film will be worth a watch.

Also - another irritation but i would like to know - where is part 1 finishing and where is part 2 starting from if anyone knows?

Part 2 is rather meant to be a bridge between Lotr and the Hobbit.

Hobbit is relatively small book, which is why they're adding existing scenes from other Tolkien books such as the White Council and flash backs or forwards. It also explains the presence of characters like Galadriel, Saruman, or Drogo.

The name might be "The Hobbit" for the entire project, but the registered movie names are actually spelled "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" and "The Hobbit: An/The Unexpected Journey", which indicates that they have actually have whole lot more of Middle-earth to show in them.

As for talking animals, I don't understand how is it bad that they follow the stories respectively. Secondly, all we have is rumours for the animal voice actors right now, and that's it. But I don't despise the idea.

I would rather say, in all honesty, that I'm happy and deeply relieved that they haven't confirmed rumours about such Mary-Sue characters like Itaril (no, I don't like Mary Sues) which Tolkien never wrote, and probably would have never written. It would disturb me a whole lot more than any talking animals (which were written).

I have read Tolkien books, and his biography. As a Tolkien reader, I approve what they're seemingly doing atm. And I won't make the final judgement until I have seen the reviews or movies. We must also remember that they have a high secrecy on what they're really doing.

If they were following the stories respectively there should be talking animals in LOTR thats my main issue! I dont have a problem with having talking animals in there as it was in the book. But from a film makers point of view if you have started a series of films excluding certain things from the original source then you should continue with that for continuity purposes.

As for part 2 being a possible bridge between - Apart from using the Appendixes in LOTR I cant see there being much story that entirely links the two films/books. If we wanted to see more lore about the white council of wizards, the elves and Numenor they should just make 'The Silmarillion' or 'The Children of Hurin' into Films.

Being so secretive can also be very annoying for book fans who are unsure of what you're doing with their beloved books

But in saying all this I wont make my final judgement either until i see the movie too

Thanks for the information Lorie about the casting.  There had been some talk of the other hobbit actors possibly being in the movies but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Should be very interesting.  I have faith in PJ and his team to produce a good product concerning this subject.  There's a lot of implied info in The Hobbit book that PJ can flesh out. For example, Gandalf knows all about Bilbo, including knowing that he'd be perfect for the adventure.  When fighting the spiders, Tolkien mentions that Bilbo could do all sorts of thiings, he didn't have time to mention.  Additionally, Gandalf leaves the dwarves for long periods of time, hinting he's taking care of other business, so maybe we'll learn what that was.  I for one am very excited about this movie.

As for the list, I have made it. I'm constantly updating it to another site as soon as I hear the news out. I'm starting to feel like a journalist.

The last part of the list means that I haven't heard news of those characters at all.

Sir Ian the Grey with 3D glasses.

Also, Martin Freeman is not in NZ right now. But it's a scheduled hiatus for playing Dr. Watson so he'll be back, and meanwhile the rest of the cast is filming Bilbo-less parts.

Stephen Fry will play the greedy hogging Master of Esgaroth.

[img overlay=true]http://images.wikia.com/harrypotter/images/5/56/Stephenfry300.jpg[/img]

Yes, that guy.

Also, Conan Stevens from Game of Thrones will play the orc Azog.
