Hugo Weaving Spotted in Wellington, NZ Can't Post

Our friend Jack from The Noldor Blog has just posted a new blog entry concerning Hugo Weaving/Elrond who's been spotted down in Wellington, New Zealand.

An excerpt follows:
About an hour ago I received news from one of my more reputable spies, and he has reported seeing Hugo Weaving here in Wellington this afternoon, shopping at Common Sense Organics, the fruit and vege market in Wakefield Street... it's probably a bit too hasty to assume that he's here to be in The Hobbit, but I can't think of any other reason why he would come here right now, just when they're discussing Rivendell scripts. It's certainly not for the weather (it's howling a cold southerly gale out there at the moment).

With Peter Jackson having mentioned in his Easter Break post over at his Facebook page that there'd be "Rivendell scenes coming up", does it seem too far-fetched to assume that Hugo Weaving is down in NZ prepping for The Hobbit?

Don't forget to read the entire blog post over at The Noldor Blog.

Well that would be a hell of a coincidence... [In reply to] Can't Post

... that Lord Elrond himself would be wandering in New Zealand by the time the Rivendell scenes are just coming up around the corner...

I agree. [In reply to] Can't Post

Still can't figure out why Warner Bros. isn't giving us more press releases at this point to announce the inevitable return of some of the actors. Anyways, excellent news, I can't imagine any other reason why Hugo would be there, even if he does spend a lot of time in Australia.

Nah, [In reply to] Can't Post

he just came cause he loves that store way too much. There's no way he could be in NZ cause he's about to come back as Elrond for the Hobbit. ...Sly

I had no doubt he'd be back, but it's nice to hear rumblings of it, especially since PJ just talked about shooting in Rivendell soon. Hopefully Hugo will be in the next vlog!

While not nearly conclusive... [In reply to] Can't Post

...this is certainly a promising report. A reason that we have not seen a press release may be that Weaving's contract may not be finalized (or it hasn't been until very recently). This leads me to believe that we may have official confirmation by the end of the week.

About flipping time. [In reply to] Can't Post

If he's shopping for groceries then he isn't on a flying visit (especially with the atrocious weather Jack mentioned). Thank goodness we've got *something* to go on now!

will just toss it into a comment on an unrelated matter like he did with Sir Ian Holm? That would be cool. I prefer casual mentions to press releases...

I'm tempted to ask in the shop..... [In reply to] Can't Post

if any of the staff can confirm the sighting.
For what its worth one of my daughters swears she saw Alan Rickman in Wellington recently.
Ooops...is that going to start another round of speculation?
