Stephen Fry Can't Post

Stephen Fry is suspiciously absent from the cast list in the new Desolation of Smaug synopsis, even though new arrivals like Evangeline Lily, Lee Pace and Persbrandt are. Is it possible that this was an oversight? The Master's more prominent scenes are after the Company's arrival; I can't see them delaying his intro to the third film.

He showed up in the Bard poster [In reply to] Can't Post

Along with his advisor, Alfrid. It seems as though these two will have a significant enough role in DoS (they're the only minor characters to show up in the new posters). I can't any reason for us not to meet them when the dwarves are in Laketown.

On a related note, this also leads me to believe that the omission of the White Council actors in the credits does not mean a thing and that they were only highlighted in the AUJ credits for promotional purposes. I'm not saying that they will be in, but I think the credits issue is being overstated.

Oversight. I'd bet the house (that I don't own) on it. // [In reply to] Can't Post

They can't list everyone. [In reply to] Can't Post

And really, The Master is only a secondary character (especially when compared to Bard). Apart from housing the Dwarves ... he doesn't really do much. He doesn't advance the plot, he doesn't achieve anything, cause anything, or prevent anything from happening. Just because he is played Fry doesn't mean she should automatically be listed on (limited) cast lists.

Denethor didn't have a problem being introduced in the last film of The Lord of the Rings.

He's in it [In reply to] Can't Post

No need to worry.

I got to meet him at comic-con last year. He was controlling a robot at the Weta booth and scared me to death early one morning before the show started. We talked for a good 5 mins and he was super great to chat with. One of my highlights of this past years Comic-Con.Cool

Not a good analogy, Daniel. [In reply to] Can't Post

The Company (or at least Gandalf and Pippin) didn't reach Gondor until RotK either. It would be very strange for Thorin & Co. to reach Lake-town and never get to interact with the mayor.

This is true. But I was thinking more ... [In reply to] Can't Post

of Denethor's characterisation, than anything else. Smile

I think I mis-understood the original point re: the Master of Laketown.
