I have watched a good deal of Beck movies, and his performance in that series, always cracks me up. Not because that role is funny, but because Gunvald is so damn "straight forward, and uses some quite colourfull language. The fact that he uncovers sick people for who they really are, and that he says straight out what he thinks about them, is also something I love about that character
This took me totally be surprise!
But Ive also seen other sides of his acting, both in beck and a Norwegian movie, called " (the) Kautokeino opprøret (rebellion)". In Beck, I remember him having some very emmotional scenes, where his performance, is quite breathtaking..
I might have suggested Bard, but seing the time constraint, I dont think so. It might be though that those two weeks, are just his first shooting though session though, and that he is just going to shoot some other work, before coming back to shoot in NZ. He will definatly Not! be cast as Thranduil, its just not in his nature, he probably could have pulled it off, but its so unlike him.
Beorn, or a Dwarf in the prologue/backstory is my best bet. But as others have said, Mikael Persbrandt, would make a good Beorn, and I must say I agree. Its probably the most likely.
However, whichever role he gets, this is good news .
