Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

More Cumberbatch news (just when you didn't think there would be more):

Benedict Cumberbatch Voicing Smaug AND The Necromancer!

Close on the heels of their exclusive that Luke Evans has been cast in the role of Bard the Bowman, has broken another exclusive that Benedict Cumberbatch will be voicing the character of both Smaug the Dragon and the Necromancer in The Hobbit.
Via After reporting today that Luke Evans will play Bard in the Peter Jackson-directed The Hobbit and wondering who’ll voice the dragon Smaug, Deadline can now tell you that it will be Benedict Cumberbatch. He’ll portray Smaug via motion capture. He is already on the picture, providing the voice of the character Necromancer.
Head over to for the complete article.
Oh, yeah, and Luke Evans (not, unfortunately, David Tennant) is Bard the Bowman.
