Casting Update

Saturday, August 04, 2012

Believe it or not, Peter Jackson has offered the U.S. women's gymnastics team (Gabrielle Douglas, Jordyn Wieber, Alexandra Raisman, Kyla Ross, and McKayla Maroney) roles in The Hobbit. They will be extras casting hobbit children. As Peter Jackson himself said, "We already had almost all of the movie cast, but we were having a devil of a time casting the hobbit children. Keep in mind, hobbits are actually smaller than dwarves, so finding actors tiny enough to play their children was virtually impossible." 
I am sorry I do not have a picture. Perhaps I will post one later. (Actually, there was one of the team and Peter Jackson, but Peter Jackson was pasted in and it looked horrible.)
