    Who would you think would play great parts in the Hobbit? Besides of course Ian Holmes for Bilbo and Ian Mckellan as Gandalf the Grey.
    Here would be my picks...

    Bard.................................Liam Neeson
    The Elf King of Mirkwood......Allan Rickman
    Beor.................................Vinnie Jones


    Thats about all I could come up with. The 12 dwarves of Thorin's company is quite the enigma.

    Thorin...................................Patrick Stewart

    It would be nice for Stuart Townsend to be given something for his troubles.

    He could be an Esgaroth person, like a soldier, or an elf in the elf king's hall.

    what i would love to see is all the actors from lord of the rings, take a role in the hobbit. bury them all in major makeup and you could have viggo as balin, frodo and sam as fili and kili, JRD as gloin (relation, lol) pip and merry as ori and dori, theoden as thorin, then just mix up the rest.

    I wonder if PJ would make an EE DVD of it. That would be awesome!! If he did i would hope he would put in something with the white council and them going to attack Dol Guldor, or maybe i'm just crazy. I hope he makes this movie.

    Some people dont like hugo as elrond, i like him, and i would like to see him in the hobbit because first of all i hate it when people changes actors for prequels and sequels, and secondly we might see him in a much "lighter" mood because there isn't much despair yet in the world.

    More importantly than actors is what smaug would look like. Weta would do an awesome job.

    Ok how 'bout this:

    Tim Curray does the voice of smaug. Very freaky.

    Yeah and in the middle of it smaug should turn to bilbo and say "we all float down here bilbo." Brings back memories.






    uhhh or not.

    He does have that ability to give off that underlying cynicism in his voice.

    they should make more than one movie to fit in all of the stuff, but that might not work...

    two questions, one: when did they announce the making of The Hobbit Movie? and if they do that, will they make one for the silmarillion?

    i dont know about the silmarillion movie, but the other day i was actually thinking about that. Immagine this if you will you guys. Picture a big budget HBO mini-series of the silmarillion. It would be better than a Hobbit series.

    I like that idea.

    As for The Hobbit, I would like the idea of it being split in two halves. 3 hours each in length, and released in theaters about 6 months apart.

    Having just seen him in concert last night, I want David Bowie as Thranduil. He looks like he is Legolas's father completely. Tall, very thin, all he needs is a blond wig and ears.
