Master of Laketown. And i hope for his sake he hasn't botched his chance with his loose lips (and even a sneak peak performance Unsure)

No. It doesn't have to be the Master of Lake-town. In fact, Mr. Briant's description of the role that he auditioned for argues against it. As others have also pointed out, the Master would be more pompous and serious-minded--and I could not remotely imagine him wearing a bow tie. It seems much more likely to me that the part of the Mayor of the Shire was created for the screenplay.

Extending the Shire [In reply to] Can't Post

I can definately see them extending the parts in the Shire at the beginning and at the end. The ending would be very lighthearted with the auction at Bag End (the Mayor I'd imagine would be over seeing it).

As long as the film ends with Bilbo handing Gandalf the tobacco-jar!
