Hmm, that's some interesting casting!
Cate Blanchett and Barry Humphries, also known as Dame Edna, have joined the cast of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit. Cate will of course be reprising her role as Galadriel, the Lady of Lothlorien.
Meanwhile, Jackson confirmed the news that Humphries will be portraying the Goblin King as the director wrote on his Facebook:
"[Humphries] will be portraying the Goblin King, in much the way Andy Serkis created Gollum. We’re looking forward to seeing him invest the Goblin King with the delicate sensitivity and emotional depth this character deserves."
The Hobbit is shaping up to have quite the eclectic cast! We're exited that Cate will be returning to Middle Earth. And, as for Dame, um, Barry, there's a little part of us that wishes she would bust out the wig and glasses in this film.
LOLz. Just kidding! Kinda.
