He seems really excited to be part of The Hobbit. Who wouldn't?

Funny the article says [In reply to] Can't Post

that he'll be in the Hobbit "There and Back Again" when it hasn't been officially specified that he won't be in the first movie at all.

That seems about right [In reply to] Can't Post

As many of us have speculated, it seems more certain that the first film will end before the company reaches Lake Town, so Bard would be only in the second one.

Actually [In reply to] Can't Post

his CV over a United Agents states that he is filming both movies, and they're very accurate when it comes to listing his stuff. They even have the voiceovers he's done for commercials.

I'm starting to think he's going to be in both parts, even if for just a small amount of time in the first one.

Bard in An Unexpected Journey? [In reply to] Can't Post

If Bard happens to be in the first movie does that mean it will end with the company arriving in Laketown? What do you think?

I don't know, maybe they'll [In reply to] Can't Post

expand some of the back story, flesh out the character, etc. to introduce him earlier.

A number of TORners have suggested that An Unexpected Journey might end when Thorin declares himself at his arrival at Lake-town. A captain of the guards meets the company upon their arrival; it would be quite simple to make that character into Bard. It doesn't even require any major change when Bard first confronts Thorin at Lonely Mountain. If Bard is wearning a helm that obscures his face, Thorin would probably not recognize him until he removes it and declares his identity.

He's such a sweet geek [In reply to] Can't Post

He was very sweet and down to Earth at San Diego comic con, glad to see it's consistent, and that he is so excited. At that time, he had not been down there yet, so this level of excitement didn't exist yet.

As for the filming, my conjecture is the first film will end either after Beorn, or after the spiders just as they all get captured by the Elves. Depends on whether PJ wants a Cliffhanger ending (capture by the Elves) or a mid-journey end, with them all happy and safe as they leave Beorn.

I think we'll see Bard and others in Laketown in basic backstory, including the Elves as well. Possibly as part of the original attack of Smaug on the Lonely Mountain, Dale being destroyed, and moving to where everyone is now and how the geography of the region is and who lives at the destination. That way, when the party reaches Laketown, we know who all the players are already.

Peace, Love and Rock & Roll,

But Bard can't have been a middle-aged man during the original attack right? [In reply to] Can't Post

That would make him a really old man in the "present day".

it's 150 years later, so it's a generational thing [In reply to] Can't Post

Smaug arrives, many die, much is destroyed, and the remnants of Dale combine with tradesman from Laketown and the land recovers on one end of the Lake, but not the other end, and generations come and go, etc, etc, etc. Words, flashes of images, won't take long to convey the history of the region and the people.

Untill such time as final editing takes place [In reply to] Can't Post

it's impossible to definitively credit him as being in one or both movies (think of how many scenes originally written for TTT ended up in the beginning of ROTK). So I wouldn't put much stock in that. I think that unless there are flashbacks he won't end up in the main body of the first film.

All you have to decide, is what to do with the time that is given to you...

True, but Evans is likely to have inside information. [In reply to] Can't Post

It's not improbable that he knows exactly where Peter Jackson intends to end the first film and start the second. Granted things can change radically before the final cut of An Unexpected Journey is made.
