    Something about Nic Cage screams "he doesn't belong in any movie set in the past or a medieval like fantasy setting". There's just something too modern about him. He could do something set in the future though.

    I agree that was why season of the witch sucked so much not because of RON.

    Could've been great. I'm pretty sure the awesomeness of a Nicholas Cage performance is directly proportional to the ridiculousness of the wig he wears.

    I hope they include a flashback of the War of Dwarves and Orcs. Dain and Thorin play big roles in that.

    Azog, who led the Orcs in that war, has apparently been cast, so it does sound like we'll be getting a flashback to it. Probably something akin to how they handled the War of the Last Alliance in LOTR.

    My dad's been a fan of Billy Connolly since the 1970s - he'll love seeing Billy in The Hobbit!

    Isn't this a bit late to be casting people? This film's been in production for months already. Is it possible Billy's replacing someone?

    Dain's part doesn't come until late in the story, so it's probable that they didn't need to cast him until now.

    Wow, this is awesome news. I've loved everything I've seen him in.

    I didn't think it was possible, but I'm looking forward to these films all the more!

    I fucking HATE Billy Connolly. This is the first disappointing news I've read about this movie.

    I've been a fan of his since he took over from Johnny Fever as the Teacher on that 1980s Sitcom Head of the Class

    He was funny in the 1970s, hasn't been funny in years. And he's turned into a total prima-donna. Walked offstage last week because he got heckled, made tasteless jokes about the hostage Ken Bigley while he was awaiting beheading in Iraq, then took the hump when audience members objected. Tosser.
