James Nesbitt Joins ‘The Hobbit’

Tuesday, November 2 by

"Don’t look, don’t look, don’t look."

James Nesbitt has joined Peter Jackson’s big screen adaptation of The Hobbit. Unless you’re British, you’re probably all like, "who?" He has starred in Danny Boyle‘s Millions, an awesome family film that doesn’t feel family-ish, and Waking Ned Devine, a movie some critics refer to as a "gem." Nesbitt will play Bofur, “a disarmingly forthright, funny and occasionally brave Dwarf.”

With The Hobbit going into production and one trillion Snow White stories in development, Dwarfs are in high demand lately. Too bad they’re getting normal-sized actors to play them instead of midgets. I apologize. I didn’t mean to be insensitive. Not "normal-sized," just normal. (Deadline)
