James Nesbitt lands 'major role' for The Hobbit - how did we miss this? Can't Post

After seeing Deadline mention Nesbitt last night I did a little digging and found an article from 13 days ago that we must have all missed!

COLD Feet star James Nesbitt is planning to quit Britain and move with his family to New Zealand.

He decided after landing a major role in The Hobbit blockbuster saga which is due to be filmed there.

Nesbitt, 45, and actress wife Sonia Forbes-Adam, also 45, have talked to their daughters Peggy, 12, and Mary, eight, about the benefits of staying on to make a fresh start. The Northern Irish star believes it will be good for his career and family life. A source said: The Hobbit was always going to mean a long stay in New Zealand for James and he wanted his family around him.
