MORE Amazing Cast Additions To The Hobbit!

| Filed under: Film FlickersOrlando Bloom


Wow! We guess it was worth waiting through the production delays!

David Tennant, who is the former Doctor on the UK series Doctor Who, has reportedly joined the cast of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit as Sindarin Elf King Thranduil!

Inneresting! Especially because that character in the series is the father of Legolas, which MAY explain why our beloved Orly is making a return appearance in the prequel!

Meanwhile, we've gotten word that Sir Christopher Lee, who portrayed the evil wizard Saruman in The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, is in talks to reprise his role for the new film, as well, so long as he is in good enough health to travel!

Honestly, we don't think we could be anymore excited for this movie!

If all the pieces fall into place, this could not only match the level of awesomeness put into precedence with the original trilogy - but dare we say SURPASS it!

    Hi. David Tennent is no longer the current Doctor Who. Matt Smith is.

  2. 2

    Yay David Tennant! (just as a nerdy aside, Matt Smith is now The Doctor)

  3. calar says – reply to this


    Tennant hasn't been the doctor for a year.

  4. 4

    David Tennant isn't the current doctor.

  5. 5

    Seriously, who is the fact checker? David Tennant 10th Doctor, Matt Smith current/11th Doctor.

  6. 6

    Before you get some emails from loyal WHOvians, David Tennant is no longer the Doctor, Matt Smith is. The up-coming season of Doctor Who will be Matt's second season as the Doctor.

  7. 7

    Yeah, not the current Doctor. Still awesome, but he's no longer on Dr Who. I do love him though.

  8. 8

    uhhh David Tennant isnt the current Doctor Who…

  9. 9

    David Tennant ISN'T the current Doctor! [hotty] Matt Smith is!

  10. 10

    ummm. David Tennant is not the current doctor, feel free to try again though.

  11. 11

    Erm sorry to be a geek but David Tennant is the previous Dr Who not the current one. Geek attack over :)

  12. 12

    David Tennent is amazing! and to see him in the hobbit would be great! Doctor Who FTW!

  13. 13

    "David Tennant, who is the current Doctor on the UK series Doctor Who"

    I don't think so.

  14. 14

    ^ That's what I was going to say, but YAY DT!!

  15. 15

    David Tennant isnt the current Dr. Who.

  16. 16

    David Tennant isn't the current Doctor in Doctor Who. Matt Smith is. David Tennant left at the end of series 4.

  17. 17

    Matt Smith is the current Doctor. (Please keep up to date, Perez.)

  18. 18

    David Tennant is not the current Doctor Who.

  19. 19

    Get your facts right Matt Smith is the current Doctor on Dr. Who. David Tennants Dr was killed off.

  20. 20

    david tennant will always be my doctor so i will allow the flub!

  21. 21

    David Tennant is not the current Doctor. Matt Smith is.

  22. 22

    Um Matt Smith is the current doctor jackass.

  23. 23

    You've ignited both the excitement and ire of Whovians everywhere. I guess I don't need to tell you that David Tennant is no longer the Doctor - Matt Smith is - because I see loads of my fellow Whovians have already told you. :)

    But yay! Glad the rumors are now official! That's my top three British loves all in this movie: Richard Armitage, Aidan Turner and David Tennant. I may faint for real.

  24. 24

    Like everyone else has said, David is NOT the doctor anymore…hasn't been since the end of 2009. Keep up.

  25. 25

    Wow, for a self-proclaimed Anglophile you screwed the pooch on this story! Way to go, Perez! Are you even trying to be accurate on your facts? First it's with the copious amounts of typos in your posts and now f-ups like this? Come on… it's just getting insulting!

  26. 26

    You really need to get a better fact checker/proofreader. I'm not a big Dr. Who fan (my brother watches it), but even I know that David Tennant is not the current Doctor.

  27. 27

    Ooh David will be great in it of course!
    Just an FYI Tenant is no longer the Doctor. Matt Smith is.

  28. 28

    yeah david tennant is the current doctor

  29. 29

    Perez, ask and investigate this real question…will the hotness that is Viggo M. make an appearance as Strider/Aragorn??? Lemme know.

  30. 30

    Correction. David Tennant is NOT Doctor Who, Matt Smith is.

  31. 31

    Re: S.Steven – the funniest thing about his saying that is he actually reported when Matt Smith was chosen as Tenant's replacement. Ridiculous.

  32. 32

    I was going to post on here that "David Tennant isn't the doctor anymore, he's been replaced by Matt Smith" but all the other fans did it for me.

  33. 33

  42. 42

  43. 43

    Nothing can make me sit through this crapfest, not even the wonderful David Tennant

  44. 44

    David Tennant is Doctor Who. Fail much?

  45. 45

    hey it says former doctor who, not current. wish he was still current doctor. love that he gonna be in the hobbit.

  46. 46

    I shall now out-nerd all of you. Thranduil isn't a "Sindarin" king. Sindarin is a language. Sindar are the people, specifically the Grey-Elves. Furthermore he isn't the king of the Sindar, that belongs to Thrangul. Thranduil is king of the Silven Elves. Also Orlando Bloom is making a 2 minute appearance, so quite jizzing yourself over it, he didn't even appear until the Council of Elrond to be technical.

    to be fair, you probably have never read a book seeing as you put all your energy into writing a shitty blog.
