Guillermo del Toro confirms Hugo Weaving in 'The Hobbit'

In an interview with BBC Radio 5 (at 02:10:55 mark), director Guillermo del Toro confirmed that Hugo Weaving will reprise his Lord of the Rings role of Elrond in the upcoming Hobbit films. Weaving joins Andy Serkis (Gollum) and Ian McKellen (Gandalf), who will also reappear in the two highly anticipated films, scheduled for a 2011 and 2012 release.

{spoiler below}
They're splitting the book into two movies.
The first one ends when the dragon dies.


  1. And I remember him best as one fabulous third of a caravan of drag queens trucking across the Australian Outback :D

  2. I LOVE Guillermo del Toro! Pan's Labyrinth is possibly the best movie made and I still listen to the soundtrack at least once a week.
    The Orphanage was awesome too...Now I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. And only like two years to wait, eh?

  3. Don't you mean Sarah Alexander will be returning as Elrond?
