Hugo Weaving Confirmed for "The Hobbit"

Posted: May 10th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Hugo Weaving Confirmed for "The Hobbit"Submit Comment
Back on May 1st, director Peter Jackson posted a photo of him and Hugo Weaving on the set of "The Hobbit." Many assumed that Weaving will be reprising the role of Elrond, but Jackson said that the actor simply stopped by for a visit.

Now, Ian McKellen has updated his official blog with news that Weaving is officially on board.

He wrote: "Martin Freeman has left 'The Hobbit.' This is not another April Fool, just a May Fact. Before signing as Bilbo, Martin had agreed to make three 90-minute TV films in London, again playing Dr Watson to Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock Holmes.

No worries: he'll be back in Middle Earth after our first hiatus, during which Peter Jackson will have spare time to edit the scenes already completed. The rest of the cast remains on duty for another few weeks, working on hobbit-less sections of the film. These involve dwarves of course but also elves, with Hugo Weaving back for a stretch as Lord Elrond.
