There's a new elf in "Hobitt" land.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Flight of the Concords" star Bret McKenzie has joined the cast of the eagerly awaited Peter Jackson directed film "The Hobbit."
The adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic recently began production in McKenzie's native New Zealand and follows the character Bilbo Baggins' quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.
Fans of the Emmy-nominated "Flight of the Concords" already know that McKenzie and his co-star Jemaine Clement have a special affection for Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" series.
MoPoop,You just can't help yerusolf not to stuff ballotboxes or audiences.CNN ought to be forced to host a Democrat debate where disguised GOP operatives get to ask all the questions.Watch the Democrats run from that as none of their candidates will answer a fair question squarely and truthfully.
LLLOOVVEEE FOTC!! Anyone else misses it and wants it back? I think 2 seasons is hardly enough to satisfy my need for Flight of the ConcHords (really cnn??)
So they can fix "Concords" but not "Hobitt"? Is this site for real?
Cereasly? Hobitt? In the headline, and the lead. I loved the consistency, until they actually got it right in the second paragraph. That's not how you spell Conchords either...dumases.
Not only did they misspell "hobbit," but also "Flight of the Conchords." C'mon guys, a quick Google to check never killed anyone...
As of 9:09AM EST, it still reads "Hobitt" I don't know why I am not surprised. Get an editor CNN!!!
BTW, completely stoked. Love FOTC!!
@derp..f*** your mama loser!
Hobitt? Really? You spelled it "Hobitt"?
(And, for those reading after a possible correction, it was originally written 'Hobitt'.)
Just in case you were wondering, Bret McKenzie was in the original LOTR as well, although just as an extra for 1 movie and then he had one line (when he tells Arwen to get going because she's distracted by her vision) so although this is news, he technically isn't a "new" elf, just back.
I remember that scene. He looked rather gay.
Ok head wench in charge, we finally agree on something. FOTC is hilarious.
Keep in mind derpf – there is someone who uses my name. The real me has a link to my blog through wordpress. The fake me, does not.
Love Flight of the Concords, I think he will do a great job. The hot New Zealand accent doesn't hurt.....
