"Flight of the Conchors" Star Joins "The Hobbit"Submit Comment
"Flight of the Conchords" star Bret McKenzie has been cast in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit," which began shooting on March 21st. He will play Lindir, an Elf of Rivendell.

"The Hobbit" is set 60 years before "Lord of the Rings" with Bilbo (Martin Freeman), the unassuming Hobbit who becomes a hero by obtaining a powerful ring in the face of challenges by the wicked Gollum and a dragon named Smaug.

The actor was an extra in the first and third "Lord of the Rings" movies. He is joining others from the first trilogy, including Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Andy Serkis and Elijah Wood.

Lindir, an Elf of Rivendell. I believe in the book he captures and violates fish? He likes to watch Legolas sleeping. I could be wrong though

It will be hard to keep a straight face when I see him. 'Flight of the Conchords' was such a funny series, he was great in it, wish it had more seasons.

Great! Now if we could only get Jemaine to play anyone, that would be awesome!

Not really upbeat about the cast in this, bar the few from lotr, hope otherwise but can see a fail coming on, the kind of fail minnie gets every time he reaches into his pants for a c*ck but ends up feeling a soaking wet ham wallet that would have bieber singing baby baby baby ohhhhhhhhhhhh!

So he's playing a completely different elf? This is Redunkulious.

Finally Bret is going some where with his career...I love the show and both actors are hilarious, But it was sad to see Jemaine getting all the movie roles while bret was left behind
