Reusing actors [In reply to] Can't Post

The fact that they cast Benedict Cumberbatch as the Necromancer doesn't necessarily indicate that the role is expanded or that he'll have a lot of dialogue. It could be a case of reusing actors. Several of the dwarf actors also played the trolls. In LOTR, Sala Baker played Sauron and various orcs and Andy Serkis was the voice of a Nazgul in addition to being Gollum. It could be that they needed someone to make scary whispering noises as the Necromancer and chose to use someone already on-set instead of casting someone specifically for that purpose.
