This is just the cutest thing ever!!!
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug's recently leaked trailer rocked the whole world with its epic awesomeness, but two girls were more more than most!!
These self-professed "Happy Hobbits" geeked out so hard while watching the teaser, their reaction (above) went viral!!
In fact, the ladies' love for the clip was so super-passionate that director Peter Jackson let Hobbit stars Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, and Lee Pace watch the reaction vid while still in costume!!!
AND THEY LOVED IT!!
Ch-ch-check out the cast reacting to the uber-fans who freaked out over the trailer…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

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?

The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons is making his Broadway debut in The Normal Heart this spring.
The Golden Globe winning actor will play Tommy Boatwright, a Southerner in a group of HIV/AIDS activists in the early 1980s, with Lee Pace from the cancelled ABC series Pushing Daisies (or Marmaduke) starring alongside as closeted fellow activist Bruce Niles.
The play focuses on the rise of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City between 1981 and 1984, as seen through the eyes of writer and activist Ned Weeks, the gay Jewish founder of a prominent HIV advocacy group.
The show's limited 12-week run will begin previews on April 19, then open on April 27th.
With a Golden Globe and Emmy under his belt, it's hard to believe that Jim won't do anything less than an EXCELLENT job on stage. Is there a Tony Award in his future?
