Gosh...I would never have thought of him. I totally forgot Ron did Willow. I wonder how long we will have to wait to know for sure? As you can probably tell...I am a little anxious.

I think it's really sweet that Elijah said that he would "absolutely love to" play Frodo again. Saying that now proves that the friendship beetween LotR cast is a real thing.

I'm just glad he's changed his mind about it, since he had said he would never play a hobbit again. I really think he just needed to get away from it for a while. Can't blame him for that, considering.

Yeah... he had to be away from home for a very long time. I think he said it because of that, not because he did'nt like it. He loved it, like everyone else in the cast.

Or maybe it had something to do that he was so often called Frodo by the people, and he wanted to be recognized also as something else that he had done in his career... I don't know really. Maybe now that things have calmed down he does'nt care to remember any negative sides of that anymore. There was more positive.

I suspect it was some of both and who can blame him? It swallowed up their lives for so long, as much as we all loved, and love, it. I can't even imagine how it must have been for the actors at times.

It's lovely that he has been able to get away from it for a while. We all need that sometimes.

Hugs,
Rach

I agree.  I think he probably feels he's done enough work since LOTR that going back to play a hobbit again won't hurt his career.

Hi ho, everyone! I am back again. 

It is understandable that EW wanted to be known for something besides playing a hobbit. It sure would be fun to see some of the "old" characters reappear in The Hobbit...even if it isn't exactly in the book.

We seem (maybe) to have a director. Apparently, Guillermo Del Toro is ALMOST signed. I loved "Pan's Labyrinth" but that wasn't "The Hobbit". "Hobbit" is MUCH lighter in tone (unlike LOTR, it was written for children) than its sequel.

I trust PJ, but it will be interesting to see what Mr. Del Toro does with the lighter film.

Isn't funny how long it seems to take because we are waiting anxiously to hear the final selection.

Really! I guess it's always longer when you're waiting for it.

There's been a break in the writers' strike so hopefully, we can get on the road to Hobbiton very soon!

I would hope they make the movie version darker than the book;  I think there are ways they can do that without changing the story.  Bilbo and the dwarves were in a lot of danger throughout their journey so maybe the movie will emphasize that more than the lighter elements.

I guess that "darker tone" thing bothers me a bit because I'm a long time book-firster. I think about what Tolkien would have thought about changes. I can't seem to help it.

PJ's changes preserved the tone of the novel, and there were only a few things I think would have bothered him but making The Hobbit too dark...

I guess I just honor the author too much. I don't want to see it be silly but I also hate when they do something I KNOW Tolkien would not like.
