Weaving, Serkis & McKellen For Hobbit

Here's one to file under, "Well, duh! But also good". Guillermo del Toro told Radio 5, as picked up by The One Ring.net, that Sir Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis and Hugo Weaving would be appearing in The Hobbit.

It won't come as any great surprise to, well, anyone, but it is welcome news that those members of the **Lord of the Rings **cast who also appear in The Hobbit will be playing the roles they originated in Del Toro's sort-of prequel to Jackson's trilogy.

We're due a Bilbo casting announcement any day now, but we hope that this tidbit of almost-news will keep you going until then.
