Wild Men, Dwarves and Elven Lords

I've got to agree with the general consensus that the call is not for Hobbits unless we get some flash-forwards (maybe Bilbo, Frodo or Sam is narrating?).

Appearances by the Drúedain are certainly possible, but--though they would be short and stocky compared to most other Men--they would still be counted among the Big Folk. The call for shorter actors is most likely for the casting of Dwarves.

Perhaps the call for red heads has to do with an Easterling tribe or Wild Men inhabiting Eriador.

I wonder if the call for performers proficient with stilts might involve Trolls and/or Ents?

The other calls for taller actors are probably for both Númenóreans and Elf-lords.

Btw, people don't say "4 feet 12 inches" any more than they would say "5 meters 100 centimeters"; they say "5 feet".
