BIFUR - NORI - BALIN not yet cast Can't Post

why no news on these three roles? (unless i've missed something).

I've said from the start BALIN is the lynchpin of the 5-film project, second only to Gollum, Bilbo, and Gandalf inthis role importance to bridging PJ:THE HOBBIT and PJ:LOTR. I've also said this role would be suitable for a old school star...the 'old man' on a last crusade type thing. The delay in announcing casting of this role could be an indication that it is being held back as "BIG NEWS" perhaps to coincide with the official announcement of McKellen's return as gandalf.

Okay, BALIN is my obsession, i've beat it to death, i know.

But here's the funny thing. If Balin has consistently been Topic One with me on these forums, the only other topic I've dedicated key strokes to on these forums is the topic of female dwarves and the wisdom/non wisdom of having Walsh/Boyens/Jackson 'go there' with one or more members of Thorin's Company. On at least two occasions over the last 2 years, without passing judgement on whether they OUGHT TO interpret any of the company as female, I've presented my reasons for thinking that IF they did that, the two most likely candidates would be BIFUR and NORI.....Shocked....the only dwarves, aside from Balin..for whom casting has not been revealed!!
