I'm not convinced he will be

I'm definately certain that there is not a single blonde hair anywhere on that heavily photoshopped image of Beorn...it's definately just lighting. I think that earlier in the thread you mentioned that the image is backlit, so the top of his shaggy head wouldn't by highlighted in that way, but I just put that down to the photoshop job. This whole scroll is a series of composite images, and I'd say that the image of Gandalf, Beorn and the eagles is no different. Chances are that Beorn in bear form, lighting and all, was superimposed onto this image along with the other components.

Persbrandt's Beorn may very well be blonde, but IMHO there's nothing in the image that supports that theory unequivocally. In any case, wouldn't a predominately dark-furred bear look a bit strange with a mop of blonde hair on on top?
