Last we heard about Hobbit casting, it was looking like Orlando Bloom would most likely return as Legolas.
While there still hasn't been any 100% confirmation of Orly's involvement, Peter Jackson has revealed some new Hobbit casting deets via Facebook, which are as follows:
- Hercules: The Legendary Journeys actor Dean O'Gorman will replace Rob Kazinsky in the role of Fili
- Breaking Dawn's Lee Pace will star as Elvin King Thranduil (Legolas' father)
- Lord of the Rings alum Hugo Weaving will return as Elrond
So exciting! We're seriously pumped to hear that Peter Jackson has been able to get nearly all of the LOTR cast to return!
All we need is some confirmation on Orlando Bloom and we'll be absolutely ecstatic!
What do U think of these new casting deets?
