A summary of 'The Hobbit' casting discussion so far Can't Post

"The Hobbit," has to be cast but that just leaves more time for fans to speculate, guess and suggest about the casting of the two-films planned by producer Peter Jackson and director Guillermo del Toro.

There are a few givens. According to the decision makers, as many of the main characters that appear in both Jackson's LOTR trilogy and GDT's Hobbit films will be cast using existing actors from those roles as possible. And while media outlets trying to create news about the film have asked any actor they can find if they will appear, the list of sure crossovers are relatively small.
Ian Holm, approaching 80 years old, has stated that he is too old to play Bilbo because of the physical demands of the role and the required relocation to New Zealand. So the search for the main character is on. Most readers will be familiar with characters like Gandalf that belong to actors such as Ian McKellen so they will not be rehashed here because there is no debate about who will fill the role.


Other roles are open to speculation such as Aragorn's role from the LOTR appendices that might be used to flesh out parts of the two-movie set planned for December 2011 and 2012.

While a few names have likely been missed here and there, we present the suggestions from TheOneRing.net's message boards. Check back soon on our "The Pollantir" section of our message boards for some unscientific voting. Please forgive any errors, there was a lot of information to be dealt with here.
