    Good to see PJ actually looking enthusiastic about this. There was a definite air of, "Well, if nobody else wants to direct it, I guess I'll do it," for a while.

    Still not thrilled with the two movies, but more stuff like this will probably wear that down.

    Casting News

    Stephen Fry has joined the cast of the Hobbit. He will be playing the Master of Laketown. I love Stephen Fry, and am thrilled by this news!

    Also of note, Conan Stevens (who plays Ser Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane in HBO's Game of Thrones) has been cast as the orc Azog (who started the war between the orcs and the dwarves). Awesome!

    Which means we're probably going to get a lengthy flashback to how Thorin got the name Oakenshield.

    There's also a made-up character named Alfrid who is the Master of Laketown's conniving assistant, which means we're probably getting some kind of extended shenanigans there.

    Not too thrilled about this.

    Yes, but it will beg the point as to why Thranduil acted as he did when his son is so much nicer and more level headed.

    I first read "The Hobbit" when my father gave me his worn out paperback edition. Can't wait to see it.

    First Look

    18 months early, but Entertainment Weekly has posted our first images from the Hobbit!

    That Dwarf in the middle sure looks like Jason Momoa.

    But yay, it looks great!

    OMG - I love that shot of Gandalf. I think I might just get a tear in my eye when I get to see him again on the big screen.

    I thought the exact same thing. Very Khal-Drogo-esque. It's Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, and the makeup looks very different than I'd imagined. It might take some getting used to, but I think it's cool.

    First look at Nori, Ori, and Dori.

    I love how they're not simply going for thirteen long-bearded lookalikes. And there's a whole lot of character just in the way their posed and dressed.

    I'm not sure I like the crazy triangle hair... but I understand that they want to give all the dwarves a distinct look. Otherwise, they look AWESOME!

    My thoughts are the same as EA; I'm not sure about Nori's hair (At least, I think it's Nori).

    It's looking to be very good, though. Very good
