I know, Ziggy. We've got to be realistic, [In reply to] Can't Post

even we fantasy-loving folk. And a reality is that existing permission to work in NZ is a requirement, too, so that let's out lots of our friends here on TORn. I was just lucky to be in the right place at the right time. If I come on a bit strong with my cheerleading, it's because I know how easy it is to think, "Ah, why bother? Who do I think I am to try out for this?" I could have so easily done that, and I know people who thought that, didn't go to the open casting call, and then kicked themselves when others they knew did get in.

Then there were others who lined up for that loooong wait last January, didn't get in to see the casting people, but they sent in their photos and application online as 3foot7 told them to - and they got chosen. If you've done everything you could, there's nothing to regret. That's all I'm saying.
And a little luck helps, too.

"........ there are also rumors (I believe posted here)......... [In reply to] Can't Post

..... that two "major" characters will be cast for additional filming this Summer. "
I don't recall anything about this being posted here.
Can you give us more detail, like a link to the OP?

No, but it WAS posted here twice at least... [In reply to] Can't Post

as well as on IMDB I believe. It's not confirmed, certainly, but it would fit with "additional expansion". (I don't have the link at the moment).

BTW, PJ also mentioned AFTER the trilogy announcement that we was going back to mine the appendices for film 3...it's going to be more than BoFA and additional reshoots it would seem (meaning, possibly, more cast):

PJ post Comic-Con: We have got incredible source material with the appendices. There's the novel, but then we also have the rights to use the 125 pages of additional notes where Tolkien expanded the world of the Hobbit. We've used some of that so far, and just in the last few weeks, as we've been wrapping up the shooting and thinking about the shape of the story, writers Philippa [Boyens], Fran [Walsh] and I have been talking to the studio about other things that we haven't been able to shoot and seeing if we could possibly persuade them to do a few more weeks of shooting. We'd probably need more than a few weeks, actually, next year. The discussions are pretty early, so there isn't anything to report, but there are other parts of the story that we'd like to tell, that we haven't had the chance to tell yet. We're just trying to have those conversations with the studio, at the moment.


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!!!!!

I'm not going to take anything a source says as fact. [In reply to] Can't Post

I think we'll just go round in circles here anyway. A minor scene for me may well be a major scene for you. It's all semantics. We might as well wait and see, aye. WinkSmile

Well, let's disregard PJ as well while we're at it. [In reply to] Can't Post

In fact, it's actually still two movies. Smile

But yes, we'll find out when Film 3 rolls around.

I hope you realised by "source" I meant your second quote, and not PJ's quote ;-) / [In reply to] Can't Post

quote]A source says the production cost of the third could run between half and two-thirds as much as one of the other two films thanks to work that's already been done. (Marketing No. 3 will add to the total.) But the final cost is not yet known because the studio is awaiting a full script for the third movie.


PJ as a source is fine. Anything that says an "insider source" or just "a source" could just be fabrication.

Well the Hollywood Reporter doesn't usually print [In reply to] Can't Post

fabrications (especially in their print edition) - they'd speak directly with someone in the know, even if they have to withhold a name - but as you said, we'll find out in...a year-and-a-half. Wink

Woooo... Exciting stuff! :) [In reply to] Can't Post

Do you think they'll cast for Elves and the race of men too? Hope so! :)
