She looks like a young Barbara Hershey in that photo.

I'm so happy Barry's gonna be in it. I hope he's recognisable under all the CGI.

First Charlie and now Kate!

Seems to be a very Lostie friendly universe they're establishing

*And yes, I know he wasn't Charlie yet, but still...

CGI Goblins? - 20/6/2011 10:29:16 AM

It's a shame they're going down the CGI route for goblins (or at least this character). The costume and make up goblins in LoTR were fantastic, so this seems like a backwards step to me. I remember when Guillermo was set to direct, he said he wanted less CGI and more animatronic stuff. Look's like Jackson has ditched this approach.

This can't be right. She's never been on the BBC!

OK, one of the least sexiest franchises in movie history just got a little bit sexier.

Apart from that one scene in The Hurt Locker has she done anything outside of Lost?

I thought she'd decided not to start acting?

Um, I mean, 'continue'.

Didn't she used to go out with the guy who played Merry? Interesting...

Not only is she a good actress, she's smokin' too. She also kind of looks like Liv Tyler so her casting as an elf is perfect.

Is she not a little short? No matter, I guess.

Do we really need extra characters in this? Does Jackson think that 13 Dwarves, a Wizard and a Hobbit plus sundry other characters (many of whom plucked from other Middle Earth books) is simply not enough for a big popcorn movie? Come on man........

Stephen Fry and now Barry Humphries, it feels just a bit like they're casting the first $500 million budget BBC panel show.

Are we talking presently or from previous films? Viggo, Sean (bean), Keith, Cate, Liv - Sod Orlando! -  It's like an epic calander!!

Well, perhaps they needed some extra characters for the second film, which is bridging the gap between The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring.

I think Barry Humphries is inspired casting! Can't wait to see the Goblin King in his lair! :-)... Evangeline Lilly is also a great choice for an elf maiden...I am really, really looking forward to the Hobbit films!

It has already been stated that the second film will not now be abridge between the two stories.

One of the things I genuinely disliked about the Lord Of The Rings films was the extra, superfluous crap Jackson chucked in, presumably because he felt no story can exist without a love interest and so-on. I'm beginning to worry that there's a chance The Hobbit could make those films look like the most faithful adaptations in the history of cinema.

Oh, has it? I wasn't aware of that.

Maybe they just wanted some elves to populate Mirkwood when Bilbo and the dwarves end up there?

Are you guys just making this up? It doesn't seem like the most natural fit. But I'll admit I loved the work of Evangeline Lilly in Lost.
