Bilbo's Parents in the EE? Can't Post

so there's supposed to be a scene in the EE where Gandalf meets a very young Bilbo Baggins presumably at one of The Old Took's midsummer's eve party now I though what if Peter and Fran made a cameo as Bilbo's parents? I mean since they already were technically cast as the couple anyway since their likenesses were used for the paintings above Bilbo's Fireplace. I know PJ would be up for it but Fran is more private I don't think she'd do it PJ was a dwarf in the prologue too. and did their kids make cameos in the movie? they were the "cute children" in the LOTR movies I had heard the PJs daughter was the flute playing elf but i'm not so sure about that

If they are, [In reply to] Can't Post

Fran and PJ should play them so that, you know, the characters match the portraits in Bilbo's home...

(I don't think we'll see Bilbo's parents.)

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

But according to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Chronicles: Art and Design, scenes with Bilbo's mother has been shot... [In reply to] Can't Post

Apparently, a scene from Old Took's birthday party, when Bilbo was a young lad, was supposed to be in the theatrical version, but got pushed to the EE. Here we'll meet young Bilbo, Old Took and Belladonna Took - who's not played by Fran Walsh, btw.

Now now Bill, you swore this was a battle between warriors, not a bunch of miss nancies, so warriors is what I brought
