Short people under four feet 12?

I was very much concerned that they put this particular class of people first in the list of casting reqs in that BGT casting call.

Sounds a bit Hobbity.

There are no hobbits among the main cast of Second Age characters, nor do any live in Númenor, Eregion, Lindon, Minhiriath or Enedwaith where the show should be based.

They hadn't yet emerged in the Second Age and Tolkien expressly tells us that there were "no hobbits" in the older legends.

As such, I hope we get a surprise and they are Drúedain or Dwarves.
