As I've posted in this thread:

Hugo Weaving WILL return as Elrond in The Hobbit, according to GDT, what he said at 02:10:55, at the Player in this link:

I guess this is news worth starting a thread for, I guess. So what do you all think of this news?

Can't watch~ [In reply to] Can't Post

I dunno if it's because I'm in the US or what but it's not letting me load the video.
What exactly did he say?

And yay! I was hoping Hugo would be involved, I adore him.

This is what he said: [In reply to] Can't Post

Simon Mayo: "Andy Serkis, he is back.."
Guillermo:" Yes, Ian McKellen is back, and Hugo Weaving as the roles that they originated in the trilogy."

Threads don't 'bump' here at TORn [In reply to] Can't Post

Unlike some message boards like IMDB, newly active threads don't jump to the top around here. Once a thread has fallen off of page one, your best option is usually to start a new one.

since Elrond is in The Hobbit [In reply to] Can't Post

it was expected that HW would be back. Plus they say they`ll add White Council into the story so more reason for him to return since the role is bigger now. WC should also bring back Cate Blanchett.

GdT has mentioned ... [In reply to] Can't Post

GdT has mentioned Hugo being in the Hobbit before. He had included Hugo in a few of the early conversations when it’s come to Andy Serkis and Sir Ian.
Here are 2 examples ... but they say the same thing. Smile
I aslo think it was mentioned on the WETA chat but I cant be sure.

Guillermo Del Toro Talks 'Hobbit' Casting, Creatures ...
'Hugo Weaving, Andy Serkis, Ian McKellen — they all must be approached to do the movie,' the director says.
By Josh Horowitz

MTV: Although one character that clearly comes up in the Hobbit is Elrond — Hugo Weaving.
Del Toro: Oh yeah. We have to approach him — of course. Hugo Weaving, Andy Serkis, Ian McKellen — they all must be approached to do the movie.



and I cant imagine the Hobbit without Hugo Elrond Weaving. There would be no one to explain the map! eek! Wink
I'd take my guess and say that he's been approached then .
*muffled squeel*

Thanks Theodred

fantastic... [In reply to] Can't Post

great to hear...that just jump started my excitement...Evil
really hope Cate is back...I read she said she'd accept if asked...the entire Lothlorien sequence was a definite high point of 'Fellowship' for me...she was THE perfect choice for Galadriel...
hope like heck Christopher Lee & Martin Csokas somehow make the return for the White Council scenes.

A non-grumpy Elrond? [In reply to] Can't Post

Or will Weaving play him just as grumpy having a house full of Dwarves?

"My hospitality grows *thin*!"


Now all we need is Liv Tyler tra-la-lallying up in the trees.

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.”

Awesome [In reply to] Can't Post

Really psyched to see so many actors able to return to the roles they played in LOTR. Not only is it good for continuity, but I believe the reverence and respect they brought to their work in LOTR will help inform any new actors cast in The Hobbit as to what is expected of them.

Now it's all about counting the days until we hear about Bilbo, Balin, Thranduil, Beorn, Bard, etc... Can't wait!

I liked grumpy Elrond in FOTR [In reply to] Can't Post

he was so much fun at the council when Hobbits started popping up and joining the Fellowship. If his Hobbit Eldrond is anything like that, and nothing like daddy-o Elrond of TTT and ROTK, I`ll be a happy camper.

Liv tra-la-laing in the trees, lmao. And running about the tree with Aragorn. But in all seriousness, her voice is angelic. I found her tra-la-laing more suitable for LOTR than Enya and especially Annie Lennox`s tra-lal-laing.

I was really hoping they would bring Hugo Weaving back. For me, it really wouldn't have felt right had they had to get someone else to reprise the role. Getting news is so exciting! Laugh

Still wondering though... [In reply to] Can't Post

If this news was leaked on purpose by GdT, giving us every now and then a name of an actor that will play in The Hobbit to keep us happy and entertained, or was this a slip of the tongue??

Not silly at all [In reply to] Can't Post

I think that recasting Elrond would have been greatly disrespectful to Hugo Weaving's protrayal of the character. But, instead of bringing Mr. Weaving back, they could have written the part out entirely and had Gandalf read the map. I just wanted to point out that Hugo Weaving wasn't the lock that some people might think (until now, of course).

Forgive me, I didn't mean to target your post in particular. I probably should have posted to the original post. Blush
