Who plays the Sackville-Bagginses?

Does anyone know the names of the actors playing the Sackville-Bagginses in The Hobbit and whether they look anything like their LotR counterparts?

Can anyone confirm if this is them? http://www.facebook.com/...51028&type=1&theater

Brian Hotter is Otho

I recall someone here found some casting info on eCaster, and Brian Hotter is listed as "Otto Sackville-Baggins" (presumably a typo for 'Otho')

Lobelia hasn't been announced

We've only seen brief shots of her in some of the vlogs.

They look great!

Otho looks pompous and Lobelia looks like a diva who must always get her way. For some reason, I was reminded of Bianca Castafiore from The Adventures of Tintin .

Hopefully they will show a good resemblance to the Otho and Lobelia that were introduced in the extended LotR.

Looks to me

Like this is the oft-rumored meeting of Marie Antoinette and Myles Standish.

(Seriously, though, I suspect your guess is correct.)

Man is but an ass if he go about to expound this dream.

Where exactly, Daniel?

I've been wondering if they were going to get someone who resembled the lady from Fellowship who passed away. I've missed this in the vlogs--can you point her out?

QT has the best shot of her

Here, and you all see her brightly coloured hat in a couple of other shots (probably not worth linking).

Sorry, Patty. That was my fault.

Some extra code seems to have slipped in there.

This should work:

Okay. Thanks. But...

I see he has a question mark after "Sackville Baggins". There isn't anyplace where it's confirmed that this is them, is there. She's too attractive to look like someone who has a face that would "curdle new milk", if I remember the quote correctly.

Quint said this in his second set report


Quote
Its also of some note that Otho and Lobelia Sackville-Baggins are in this scene, Lobelia turning her nose down on Bilbos erratic behavior as he hides behind Worrywort. Her outfit is outrageously pomp, with the most ridiculous bright hat Ive ever seen. The actress, whose name fails me at the moment, seems right for the character. Fans of the original films may remember Elizabeth Moody (the mum from Braindead) played the part in the Extended Edition

Matches the picture from the vlog?

She's probably dressed so brightly because she is celebrating the fact Bilbo is missing. Evil

"curdle new milk" doesn't mean her face is ugly

it means her attitude is sour.

True. But the actress in Fellowship managed to get that fine line just right.

The picture of this actress doesn't do it for me. But then, it's only a still, I'll reserve judgement for the movie. It's just that she is one of my favorite minor characters, and I'd like to see her more like Ms. Moody.

Thanks, Daniel...I admit I haven't been paying as much attention

to some of the spoilers as I did to the LotR ones. I do watch all the vlogs, though, and I missed that entirely. Yeah, your surmise is probably right.
