Keating auditions for The Hobbit Can't Post

The Boyzone star is hoping to relocate to America with his wife, Yvonne, and his children this summer as he attempts to make the transition into films. But if his plan succeeds, he may end up having to pack up once again for New Zealand - where Guillermo del Toro's Lord of the Rings prequel is set to be filmed.

He explains, "We are going there (to Hollywood) in July, Yvonne and the kids. We'll get the kids enrolled in school there. It may be for six months or we could even give it a year. We'll see what happens. I've done a couple of castings... I've done an audition for The Hobbit. That starts shooting in New Zealand in July so we'd be based there for quite a while instead of LA if it happens." More..

Trying to imagine him shaved... [In reply to] Can't Post

...although that would indeed be a pity (Wink). I can see Thranduil in there. Definitely.

Or Glorfindel, I suppose. I keep seeing people mention him; has there been any indication that he would be in the film? It's been a long time since I've read the books... what would he have been up to at this point in time?

'Good and ill have not change since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house.'

Looks like a soap opera star to me [In reply to] Can't Post

You know I rely get tired of them USA version of casting, where every one looks like they model for fashion mags. I love old movies filled with remarkable character players with human faces and a bit of mileage on them. The Europeans are much better at this.

I agree. How about Sidney Greenstreet.... [In reply to] Can't Post

....As Beorn? And while we're at it Peter Lorre would make a fine Gollum if the part weren't already taken (I hope).

no boyband personnel... [In reply to] Can't Post

in The Hobbit...please?

if infact he did audition...doesn't mean he automatically gets a part.
if you can call boybands "bands".
