J.R.R. Tolkein fans expect more naming bang for their buck with Peter Jackson’s upcoming epic two-parter, ‘The Hobbit’. Two names may rule us all, but what’ll those sub-headers be?

Ian McKellen Shall Not Pass On ‘Hobbit’
Tuesday, January 11 by

Ian McKellen was very close to not reprising the role of Gandalf in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit films. His reasoning? All old British dudes are pretty much the same.

Confirmed: ‘The Hobbit’ Will Give Us Wood
Friday, January 7 by

TheOneRing.net is confirming that Wood will reprise his role as Frodo. If that site was confirming something about the female anatomy, I’d be a little more skeptical. But with a URL like that, I’m assuming they know what the hell they are talking about when it comes to Hobbits.

Thursday, December 9 by

Peter Jackson already nabbed Cate Blanchett to reprise her role as Galadriel in The Hobbit, and now he’s about to land himself another pretty little elf. Orlando Bloom is in talks to return as the wispy-haired archer Legolas.

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)
