Some "Hobbit" Casting News!

on Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Obviously, most of this news has been confirmed for a while, but I've been offline. So here it is, Orlando Bloom has been confirmed to be returning to the role of Legolas for "The Hobbit" films. This news was confirmed by Peter Jackson via his facebook page. It's not yet been confirmed if his part in the films will be big or if they'll just be small cameos.
Another "Sherlock" star has joined the cast too, that being Sherlock Holmes himself, Benedict Cumberbatch. There's no word on which character he will be playing, but I'm sure we'll find out soon enough. 
And the final cast member is none other than Stephen Fry, who'll be starring in Guy Richie's "Sherlock Holmes 2". Fry will be playing the role of The Master Of Laketown.
