hamsolo77 -> (17/7/2009 6:34:35 PM)

Please, please, please do not cast Daniel Radcliffe!




bradthunder -> Past and present Jackson. (17/7/2009 6:37:17 PM)

Is it just me, but does anyone else prefer Peter Jackson when he was a cuddly fatty four-eyes? Now before you all line up to jump down my Un-PC throat, it should be noted that I also wear specs and have a fairly decent spare tire round my waist. I'm also considerably cuddly.




deathbat6661 -> (17/7/2009 7:07:09 PM)

Pfrt, we all know it's going to be Ryan Reynolds.




Rgirvan44 -> RE: (17/7/2009 7:36:07 PM)

Not if Nathan Fillion has anything to do with it!

Actuilly the David Tennent thing would make sense - Steven Moffat help to write the first Tintin movie and Jackson is a confessed Dr. Who fan. Not to menton that Del Toro was in the UK last month promoting his book.

I still say Martin Freeman, another actor who Jackson and Del Toro will be more than aware of.




RevolloveR -> Please, please, please do not cast Daniel Radcliffe! (17/7/2009 7:47:43 PM)

^ This.

James McAvoy seems the best suggestion.




elamela -> ? (17/7/2009 8:33:09 PM)

james or daniel  can play bilbo but not david tennant or jack black please.they are very uncharisma .im worried why jackson dont lie rumors and what they wait say who play bilbo?[8|]




general_potatoface -> RE: (17/7/2009 8:38:55 PM)

James McAvoy for Bilbo!

Dear Peter Jackson, Please make Temeraire as soon as possible. And please direct rather than take a back seat and produce.

signed, Philip Kehoe esq.




thepluginbaby -> decisions... (18/7/2009 4:03:58 AM)

I wouldn't mind seeing Tennant as Bilbo. He is a bit lanky though. I know special effects will create the illusion, but he'll surely be thin to play it. Plus the whole wide eyed eccentric he does for the Doctor probably wouldn't fit the role of a hobbit. McAvoy is a good choice, probably the most obvious. Radcliffe less so, he is harry potter after all. Martin Freeman did the Englishman out of water in hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. Personally, I would say James Callis from Battlestar.




Letattz -> Dear Empire (18/7/2009 8:27:54 AM)

"News" is just that, news. Something 'new', Something we haven't heard before that might excite, shock, and appall us. Telling us "we can confirm that Bilbo has not been cast" is rubbish news.

Best to be quiet and wait for somethign to report me thinks.




dontcallmeshirley -> RE: Dear Empire (18/7/2009 1:19:59 PM)

Cmon people lets not focus just on Bilbo....hows about Bard, Beorn, Thorin, Smaug etc etc

Beorn will blates be played by Ron Perlman, I shall eat some for of headwear if he doesn't
Bard...I saw someone suggest Thomas Kretschmann, works for me.

Oh and McAvoy would be best for Bilbo.




Rumpledink -> Exclusive: No plans on casting yet (18/7/2009 1:33:43 PM)

haha brilliant




Mr Terrific -> RE: Exclusive: No plans on casting yet/Legal problems? (18/7/2009 5:20:36 PM)

There may yet be some legal problems facing the production of the film as outlined in Latinoreview here




HarryHavoc -> If they cast radcliff (18/7/2009 5:24:59 PM)

I shall not be going to see it, I mean hobbits going to be an escape from harry potter, which evidently I am not a fan of. It would be like potter in tolkien, not good at all!!

Tennant please!!

danbo1138 -> THE WHEEL OF TIME (18/7/2009 6:05:36 PM)

Jackson needs to read the fabulous Wheel of Time series,he would do a brirriant job.It has the potential to be FAR BETTER than LOTR.
Empire,give him a heads up please.




dave1159 -> casting (18/7/2009 11:50:00 PM)

Daniel Radcliffe is going to be kind of busy for the next year with the 2 Deathly Hallows films so that's kind of a non starter and it would just be too much to have the face of HP as Bilbo...and he's too young, but David Tennent.... hmmmm interesting idea he certainly has the range and he is used to playing an anti hero... but I think they will go for somone less well known

Good call! [sm=happy34.gif]




funkypsiko -> RE: decisions... (19/7/2009 5:59:40 AM)

I still think Martin Freeman would be an excellent choice. He's one step away from a hobbit, even without the makeup.




El-Branden Brazil -> TENNANT!!! (19/7/2009 12:12:50 PM)

David Tennant... I like it, but he isn't stocky enough. I think Jonathan Ross would make an amazing Bilbo Baggins!




onyx79 -> Tennant? Please... (19/7/2009 1:23:57 PM)

If they wanted to keep the charm and looks of the LOTR characters, they should at the very least pick someone that looks like a younger version of Sir Ian Holm. No disrespect to the talented actor that is Mr Tennant, but I really believe he will not be suited to fill Bilbo's shoes as far as look is concerned. I trust Mr Jackson and Mr Del Toro will make an outstanding casting choice when the time is right.

As long as McAvoy is it then yeah, they've made the correct choice. [:D]




Troilus -> RE: Tennant? Please... (19/7/2009 10:52:40 PM)

One does hope it's true as I'd love to see Neil Tennant having a go- a bit past his best perhaps but I'm sure his interpretation would be definitive.




siegfried -> RE: Tennant? Please... (20/7/2009 12:20:54 AM)

I'd be happy to see James McAvoy cast as Bilbo.
Although I'm a fan of David Tennant - I've been a Dr Who fan for as long as I can remember - I agree with those others who have said that he just hasn't got the right look for the part.
How about Jamie Bamber?




Tank Boy -> RE: Tennant? Please... (20/7/2009 12:25:28 AM)

I don't see McAvoy, Freeman or Tennant as Bilbo.




williamMurderfacebab -> (20/7/2009 6:56:28 PM)

Can someone tell him to make Good Omens!




mammon -> Temeraire (21/7/2009 12:47:53 PM)

I just read the first Temeraire book last week. Damned good fun. Excellent summer reading. Essentially it's Sharpe with dragons (or maybe Hornblower, given the naval beginnings). The tone is more adventurous and less faux-literary than "Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell" by Susanna Clarke (another book that introduces fantasy elements into historical fiction).

A Jackson-directed (or produced) Temeraire film would definitely be great to see.




GeneralZod -> Matt Horne (21/7/2009 8:31:38 PM)

The guy can act and lready has a portly, homoerotic comedy sidekick to help him on his quest.

bellhm -> Michael Sheen Should Play Bilbo Baggins (18/10/2009 3:51:36 PM)

I had heard somewhere that michael sheen was a rumoured mr. baggins and think that would be fab! I can just imagine his little hobbit belly and hairy hobbit feet and he genuinely looks like a baggins. He is also a brilliant actor and should seriously be considered.
I think mcavoy and tennant are great but they shouldn't be baggins'; maybe a took or brandybuck!!!!!
