Tall Paul Randall finished with The Hobbit and back on the beat

This is an interesting article about scale double actor Tall Paul's other career.

Screencap from Hobbit production video #8:

Paul with crew on The Hobbit final day of principal photography. He and fellow actor Kiran Shah have worked in both The Hobbit and LOTR to create changes in scale between actors playing hobbits, men, elves, and wizards.

Third assistant director?

7'1" must also give some advantaged being a police officer. Doubt many people are going to try to mess with him Wink
