Beorn Can't Post

Any news on who might be playing him?

He's my favourite character from the Hobbit. Ever since childhood days.

Big, cuddly, a guy you could feel safe with - and all that honey!

No cast yet [In reply to] Can't Post

There is not even a director or writer yet. Casting is still a long way off. But I'm excited for all of the rumors to start Smile

There's so much talk about the possibility of [In reply to] Can't Post

his role being cut a la Tom Bombadil. I'd hate to see his role cut--just lose the animals serving dinner. For example, the party could just walk into a room and the meal was on the table already.

Not sure who I'd want to play him, though.

beorn will be in [In reply to] Can't Post

On the contrary, I think Beorn is essential. His presence at the Battle of the 5 Armies is one of the things that could make it a cinematic battle to rival anything in Jackson's LOTR. And you can't just have him show up at Erebor.

Maybe they modify it a little. Maybe Gandalf leads the company to Beorn's lodge and find him already gone. Maybe he play a role in the seige at Dol Guldur (if those story trails are followed in the films.)

I'm curious, given the 2 film set-up, if they will mention Bilbo's yuletide visit with Beorn on the return trip to Bag End.

I doubt they'll mention the yule visit... [In reply to] Can't Post

one of the most frequent criticisms leveled at RotK was by folks who couldn't take extended endings. Of course WE FANS know there should have been even more of them.Laugh

More endings, yes. [In reply to] Can't Post

But not in the style that RotK presented them.

I don't believe it. [In reply to] Can't Post

If they don't have Beorn in it, I might not go and see it. He's the best thing in The Hobbit.

I don't know about the "best" thing... [In reply to] Can't Post

but I do believe he has too much importance to leave out.

Who knows what Mr. Raimi will decide to do.
