Additional Casting - 3rd film. Can't Post

Hello One Ringers,

Been a while since I last posted. That was when the first round of casting was underway in 2009/10. 3 yrs later, a change of agent and Amy, the UK casting Director now def knows who I am - Woohoo!

Anyways, I'm hearing rumblings here in London that some additional casting for the shoot of extra 3rd film footage will be starting shortly. I've been trailing through the many many threads on the board but cant see any reference from you genius guys in the know.

Has anyone heard anything about this?


Ollie :D

We haven't heard but [In reply to] Can't Post

the possibility that they would bring in additional cast was noted by myself and a few others within moments of an additional 2 months of shooting being confirmed. I mean, that's enough for a stand alone film.

Are you with Hubbard then? Best of luck to you!

interesting... [In reply to] Can't Post

Aha. Yep. There will def be extra characters but Intrigued to know exactly how many additional characters there will be. My sources so far say just a couple that would potentially be cast internationally. I've got my agent doing some investigating...

Amy is the Casting Director - she doesn't actually rep people, she searches for actors and gets agents client's in BUT I changed agent as I knew that they knew each other and we've been in contact over the past 2 yrs.

Thanks for the good wishes. Fingers crossed it amounts to something this time around...

Hmmm...any sign as to the size or significance of the roles? Somewhat major additions, or...? [In reply to] Can't Post

On that note, I've wondered if they're considering changing the timeline and making Rhovanion a surviving civilization in the expanded TH...perhaps with a Prince of Rhovanion as part of either the Necro or Laketown stories? That could lead to a new character who'd add something new to the mix (or would Laketown make this redundant)? For some reason, the name always sounded French to me. ;P

Also, I know it's most likely not going to happen, but how great would be two see Alatar and Pallando (who'd probably be British, to fit in with the White, Grey, and Brown Wizards).

Thanks for this new info, I think we're all anticipatory as to what they're cooking up for the additional shooting.

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

New Casting Updates [In reply to] Can't Post

So my sources tell me casting for additional characters started for the 3rd film, tentatively, in December. Apparently there won't loads and I'm sure the majority will come from NZ and OZ not here in the UK, but has anyone heard anything additional about this? Any clues to any characters that might now appear in film 3. Obviously with an additional 2-3 months of shooting the additional casting might be more significant they we think.

Had a great time at the London premiere last week. Great watching the film with the cast in attendance - Made it an even cooler experience.

If anyone has any info I'd love to hear so I cant let my agent know the inside scoop from all the incredible Hobbit fans of the world. :D
