1/7/11 I just read that Elijah Wood (Frodo from The Lord of the Rings films) will appear in The Hobbit. This is great news for fans of his performance in Peter Jackson’s epic trilogy based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s masterpiece.
You can read more about this and other casting news at http://www.theonering.net/torwp/2011/01/07/41520-elijah-wood-will-be-in-the-hobbit/. I certainly hope that Andy Serkis will return as Gollum and Ian McKellen will reprise the role of Gandalf. I just can’t imagine anyone else portraying those two characters. Can you?
UPDATE 1/11/11: I got my wish! Andy and Ian have signed on to the project! http://the-hobbitmovie.com/ian-mckellen-and-andy-serkis-join-hobbit/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
