Not film-related per se, but I did discover a restaurant in Virginia with an interesting title...

casting agent gets fired over using skin color as a deciding factor in hiring Hobbits.

What a dummy, they deserve to be fired. Doesn't that casting agent know they should only be considering extras with hairy feet - skin color has nothing to do with it. Sheesh...where does the film biz find these losers!

They've confirmed some of The Old Band returning for appearances in The Hobbit, beyond McKellen ...

http://marquee.blogs.cnn.com/2011/01/11/ian-mckellen-andy-serkis-sign-on-for-the-hobbit/?hpt=Sbin
Quote
As Marquee reported yesterday, Elijah Wood has officially signed on to appear in Peter Jackson's two-part saga "The Hobbit." Now, fellow former "Lord of the Rings" stars Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis are following suit. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the duo will reprise their roles as Gandalf and Gollum, respectively.

Both characters were introduced in J.R.R. Tolkien's "Hobbit" novel. Gandalf the wizard helps set the adventure into motion and appears throughout the book while Gollum shows up in a memorable chapter in which Bilbo Baggins finds the One Ring in his lair.

"The Hobbit," which also stars Martin Freeman as Bilbo and Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, is scheduled to begin shooting in New Zealand in February. The films are currently slated to arrive in theaters in December 2012 and 2013.

The Hollywood Reporter also writes that Orlando Bloom has been made an offer to revisit his "LOTR" role as elf Legolas for "The Hobbit," though a deal has not been made.

I'm sure it'll be a wrap-around deal where he's telling Sam's kids the Legend of Bilbo or somesuch.

Or maybe he'll introduce Leonard Nimoy on a Hobbiton Variety Show.

Incorrect.  At he start of the Lord of the Rings, Frodo is turning 33, Bilbo is 111.  Bilbo adopted him twelve years prior, which was five years after the Hobbit.

Incorrect.  The start of the Lord of the Rings, Frodo is turning 33, Bilbo is 111.  Bilbo adopted him twelve years prior, which was five years after the Hobbit.

I looked up in the Appendix of Return of the king before posting(Appendix B),in the Third Age Bilbo got back to the Shire with the Ring in 2942,Frodo was born in 2968,and sailed to the Grey Havens(end of LOTR)in 3021

saying that though in LOTR if i remember rightly,as you say Frodo is 33 years old(coming of age apparently)and Bilbo leaves at his 111 Birthday party and it wasn't until 17 years later that Frodo,Sam,Merry and Pippin set off with the Ring...so i am sure they could put anything in for the film to make it work,maybe Elijah Wood will just play a completely different Hobbit

I cede the point.  Bilbo was 50 when he went off on the Hobbit, meaning it had been aout sixty years since his return.  I should have known better than to go off the base Wiki page, especially one without citations to base it off of.  The reason for the confusion is likely the movie mucking with the timeline.

I saw this in the preliminary credits

...and Elijah Wood as Freddie Frodo, Frodo's daddy

Seriously, I dunno, but it wouldn't surprise me if he just makes a cameo as a Frodo ancestor, or else in some sort of "vision" Bilbo has about the future. Maybe in the past, he can warn Peter Jackson away from King Kong and The Lovely Bones...

LOL,i only knew because i had the book under the desk and just made sure before i posted the first post,usually i would of looked it up on wiki as well

Maybe we will see him play Frodo's real father,maybe why he had to give him up,i can't remember if the book said anything about Frodo's real parents(EDIT:LOL yeah Freddie),just that Frodo and Bilbo were related somehow and shared the same Birthday,i think

it makes sense to have Orlando Bloom again if he does sign up he is probably a couple of 100 years old by LOTR,and i remember the elves in Mirkwood in The Hobbit,and i think we already covered why John Rhys Davis didn't sign up to play Gimli's father Gloin (as he had a hard time with the make up in the first film,as Disarm says),which is a shame


I really need to read these books again,it has been a good 3-4 years since last reading them

I'd love to see Tennant get some decent work. Perhaps a younger Elrond? Mind you, Elves and their aging means the role is still held by Agent Smith.

I don't think that's the case.  He was still pretty big when LOTR finished.  He lost the weight while making King Kong, and has always maintained it was due to diet changes though there have been rumors about weight-loss surgery and such.  He may be stressed over all the rather unbelievable stuff that keeps making The Hobbit a difficult project to get off the ground.

As for Elijah Wood, he is not playing a different character.  TheOneRing.net spoilered his actual part:

Spoiler for Hiden:
  He's going to make a quick cameo at beginning and end and essentially act as narrator telling the story years later

I was actually suggesting that it was the filming of the LOTR trilogy that made him gain the weight in the first place.

I'm sure the back and forth between LOTR and King Kong before finally getting to do LOTR probably didn't help, but he was already well along the way to being heavy back when he did "The Frighteners." As you can see in this shot of him in his cameo role for that movie.



Like a lot of people, he put on weight over a number of years.

I heard the reason a large portion of the cast who played Hobbits have never been heard from again was that he ate them.....

I just watched the BAFTAs and at the end they give out an award to someone who has contributed to Cinema over the years,this year the award was presented to Christopher Lee,he thanked himself that he was not collecting the award posthumous like Stanley Kubrick

Tim Burton introduced Christopher Lee to the stage,he mentioned all the great films he had been in LOTR,man with the golden gun,Three and Four Musketeers,the many Dracula and Hammer films,playing Sherlock Holmes,The Wicker Man and Star Wars,not to mention the many Tim Burton films etc...and also went on to say that he will be in the forthcoming Hobbit films which i was happy about(i hadn't actually heard if he was to be in them TBH)

what saddened me a bit was when Christopher Lee came onto stage,he looked very frail and had to use a walking stick,i guess at 88 years old i should be thankful he is still acting

so Saruman in The Hobbit,i can't actually remember his character in the book(its been awhile since i last read The Hobbit),but i am guessing he will be 'good' as this would be before he lost his way...or maybe show first signs of him swaying over to the dark side

I did some digging on this, and found this on wiki:

Quote
Early in The Fellowship of the Ring, the wizard Gandalf describes Saruman as "the chief of my order" and head of the White Council that forced Sauron from Mirkwood at the end of Tolkien's earlier book The Hobbit.

I'm guessing their using that to fill in events that were mentioned but never described in detal.

Saruman has almost zero part in the book anyways. He's referenced by Gandalf as Ceekay shows above, but I don't think you ever see him. I need to go back and read the book, it's been a couple years since I read through the whole series again.

Man, that definitely is sad... he looks REALLY fragile there. Totally different then he appeared in the LOTR films.

Yeah, he has definitely aged, but you have to realize that those movies were filmed over 10 years ago (October 99 - December 2000).

He really does look old in that video, and it makes me worried about his appearance in The Hobbit. Hopefully they'll make it work somehow.

And wow, Tim Burton sure sounded nervous. I mean, I totally get it when he's standing in front of a worldwide audience like that, but this can't exactly have been his first speech.  icon_razz

Yeah, that's not looking like something he's going to be able to pull off.  I guess it's inevitable given how long it's taken for them to get The Hobbit going, but sad.

Why does he need to be in the hobbit? Damn it, I need to re-read the books. I don't remember him making any appearances.
