New Images from The Hobbit Films

So here we have a whole new spate of new images from The Hobbit app that Warner Bros released. Now I wish they would do this for android phones as well – I am not even going to ask for something for my Blackberry because I know that is not going to happen. But who knows? We are after all, talking about a realm where dragons fly. 馃檪 But apart from my meagre cribbing, let me get down directly to sharing the goodies that I gathered.

He got his start in the television movie, The Rogue Stallion at the age of fourteen, and has appeared in both Hercules and Xena multiple times.

Casting news on Peter J’s FB Page

Peter Jackson once again updates his Facebook Page with some news. He mentions the casting of two new actors to join the team.

The first is Dean O’Gorman who will be playing Fili. He is scheduled to join the crew in NZ by next week.

King Thranduil has finally been cast. And no, it is not David Tennant like the rumours stated. It is Lee Pace. And apparently, according to Jackson, “Lee has always been [the] first choice for Thranduil”.

Robert Kazinsky, who plays Fili, leaves

Robert Kazinsky

Robert Kazinsky, who was cast in the role of Fili, has had to leave The Hobbit Films production due to some personal reasons. This was the update on the matter by Peter Jackson:

I am sad to report that Rob Kazinsky, who was cast in the role of Fili, is having to leave The Hobbit and return home, for personal reasons. Rob has been terrific to work with and his enthusiasm and infectious sense of humour will be missed by all of us. I should say that Rob’s departure will not affect ongoing filming of The Hobbit, nor will it impact work done to date, as we had yet to film much of Fili’s storyline. At the moment we are shooting scenes featuring Bilbo without the Dwarves, which will give us time to find a new Fili. I’ll keep everyone posted with updates as they come.

Robert tweeted about the matter and this is what he says:

Thanks for all your support, Peter and team have been the most wonderful and supportive team to work for and it鈥檚 with a truly sad heart that things have turned out this way. The Hobbit will go on to be as great as i鈥檝e seen and I will miss the family and friends that i鈥檝e here…
