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

Us "Nimoy as Smaug" fans have some new hope:

Benedict Cumberbatch as Bard the Bowman?

Just down the board from this post is a report originating from a New Zealand television station about Benedict Cumberbatch joining ‘The Hobbit’ cast. The non-by-lined article (from the TV station, not the one here) suggests from “early reports” that Cuberbatch might be in line to voice the dragon Smaug. We don’t know if “early reports” means the writer asked somebody at a desk nearby who was left to be cast, but this seems, at best, suspicious. That isn’t to say that the reporter doesn’t have some good information, but if they do they sure don’t sound confident about it. It wasn’t even written with the journalism phrase “unnamed sources” or “a source close to the production” but rather went with something that seems to actually mean, “I might be making this up and using the name Smaug will get a lot of attention.” The author, besides not having a name, cites no source and doesn’t link to any of the “early reports” referenced.

A far more likely choice and a character that Cumberbatch looks something like: Bard the Bowman. He possesses a bit of menace and is taller and robust, much that a way the leader of men might be. He might be believable as an excellent archer as well. The actor has had a good year, playing with Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins) in the BBC’s “Sherlock,” and also landing a spot in Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse,” a World War I drama. So, he might make an excellent Bard but, this is also speculation so until we hear from director Peter Jackson on Facebook or hear from WB in an official press release, don’t believe everything you read on the internet.
So someone jumped to conclusions and spoke too soon. In other words, who knows who Benedict Cumberbatch is playing (other than PJ, of course)!

Orlando Bloom joins the cast of The Hobbit.

From Jackson:
Ten years ago, Orlando Bloom created an iconic character with his portrayal of Legolas. I’m excited to announce today that we’ll be revisiting Middle Earth with him once more. I’m thrilled to be working with Orlando again. Funny thing is, I look older—and he doesn’t! I guess that’s why he makes such a wonderful elf.

Well, officially. I thought this has been common knowledge as one of the earliest castings.

He damn well better say "Look! Dwarves!" as he points at the plainly visible band of beardies. It's his job.

Jackson confirms White Council and Attack on Dol Guldor!

Peter Jackson has started answering fan-submitted questions on his official Facebook page, and the first answer is a big one! Since learning there would be two films, most of us here at TheOneRing.net were dreaming we’d get to see The White Council and the attack on Dol Guldor. Well, as it turns out, we will! Not to take anything away from PJ’s official post, we won’t reveal more here in this article. (including the exclusive picture of The White Council). You’ll have to jump over to Facebook and see it for yourself. And don’t forget to ‘like’ TheOneRing.net on Facebook to get all the latest Hobbit updates! [PJ's Answer] [TheOneRing.net on Facebook]
Fantastic, if expected, news!

Be sure to check out the image in PJ's Facebook response. It's worth a thousand laughs!

Bah, beat me to it!

For those keeping score, they're the same titles that were rumored back in March. I think the titles are perfect (and are certainly much better than just The Hobbit, Parts 1 & 2).
