13 Dwarves and a Hobbit

Here is the first look at the cast of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit. Martin Freeman, who is perfectly cast as a young  Bilbo Baggins, can be seen in the right foreground of the photo.  Jackson isn’t in the photo as he’s cooped up recovering from ulcer surgery.

Weta Workshop, Jackson’s effects company, sent all their subscribers a video introducing the cast and another page with photos of the press conference and a small blurb about it.

All this really means, of course, is that The Hobbit is definitely happening. After all the bumps in the road, the stops and starts, it looks to be ago very, very, soon.  [via aicn]

      Gosh isn't that always the thought leading right up until the movie starts?

        Yup… and then it's pretty much, *sigh* "I KNEW they'd *expletive* it up."

        Still… I'm looking forward to it, even if it's *expletived* up.
