Luke Evans Joins Hobbit Cast
Two more names have been added to The Hobbit project (more to come soon) as we are now several months into filming. There still remain several gaps that need casting, but that will be taken care of. It has been announced that Luke Evans will be joining The Hobbit movie to play the role of Bard the Bowman. Evans will be seen in the upcoming Three Musketeers movie as well as Immortals. He is a seasoned actor and should bring a perfect flare to Bard.
It has also been announced that Benedict Cumberbatch has been hired as the motion tracker/sound effects of Smaug. As for now, there still is no confirmed “voice” of the Dragon, however it still remains that Leonard Nimoy is at the top of the rumor list. Cumberbatch will wear a motion tracking suit to generate life like movements for the dragon as well as sound effects of movement, breathing and grunting. What do you think of the casting?
Jackson is in the process of filming another video log to capture and update us all on Hobbit life in New Zealand, so stay tuned. Also, our hand drawn, limited release shirts will be released to buy within the next week or so, so stay tuned.
