Well, that didn’t take long…now THR is reporting that Ian McKellan has signed on to return as Gandalf in The Hobbit films. Although long expected, no word had been received until just now, which left some scratching their heads…at this point, any other signings will be just bonus cameos…
I’ve got two brand new clips from the upcoming US version of Being Human…first up is a look at the story and characters, as presented by the actors. Then find out which you would choose to be – a vampire, a werewolf, or a ghost…
It looks like another of the long-rumored Lord Of The Rings actors has closed the deal on reprising their role in The Hobbit. Deadline reports that Andy Serkis (Gollum) has closed his deal to appear in the films, although confirmation is still pending. I will point out, however that despite rampant reports, Ian McKellan has NOT been confirmed yet (Update: yes he has, finally), nor has Christopher Lee or Ian Holm – although all three are expected. There were recent rumblings of Orlando Bloom returning to play Legolas, but I haven’t heard more on that front.
Speaking of returning characters, TheOneRing.net reports that Frodo will be seen in the opening scenes, likely as part of a narrative where Frodo is reading Bilbo’s “There And Back Again” story, which is pretty much what most expected.
Merlin goes to check on Morgana but knows he must get back to Arthur as he is in the midst of battle. Cenred and Morgause look on the war from afar in delight of the chaos. In Merlin’s search for Arthur, he is nearly consumed by a flying fire ball until he has to make some heat of his own.
