Wow! This must be such a cool opportunity for him!
Andy Serkis will not only be reprising his role in The Lord of the Rings trilogy as Gollum in the upcoming Peter Jackson-directed prequel, The Hobbit, but this time around, he'll also be the second unit director on the fantasy epic!
"There is really a sense of [director] Peter [Jackson] wanting people around him who totally understand the material and the work ethic. I will be very much on the live-action sets and locations helping Peter to tell the story."
Wow! Talk about a trusting relationship!
We're sure must be thrilled to take on this exciting new role!
Best of luck, Presh!
