Cate Blanchett Returns To The Hobbit

9 December 2010 4:04 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Warner Bros. New Line Cinema and MGM announced today that Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett has joined the cast of Peter Jackson‘s long awaited two-part adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit.

Jackson expressed his excitement with having Blanchett back on board:

“Cate is one of my favorite actors to work with and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have her reprise the role she so beautifully brought to life in the earlier films.”

Warner Bros, New Line Cinema and MGM confirmed earlier reports that Sylvester McCoy will play Radagast the Brown and added that Ken Stott is the Dwarf Lord Balin; Swedish actor Mikael Persbrandt is the shapeshifter Beorn; British actor Ryan Gage is Drogo Baggins; and New Zealanders Jed Brophy and William Kircher will play dwarves Nori and Bifur respectively.

Cate Blanchett among latest additions to cast of The Hobbit

8 December 2010 2:15 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Galadriel, the Lady of Lothlorien - as played by Cate Blanchett in the Lord of the Rings trilogy - may not feature in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit but she was certainly around at the time.

And thus Peter Jackson can easily justify bringing the actress back to Middle Earth to reprise the role in his two-part adaptation of the The Hobbit.

Cate's addition will serve to boost the star power, increase the female quotient and add another familiar face from the Rings trilogy to join Ian McKellen's Gandalf (though he is not yet officially confirmed). It also indicates that the story will be expanded in places and won't be a line-for-line translation of the book.

Jackson said: "Cate is one of my favourite actors to work with and I couldn't be more thrilled to have her reprise the role she so beautifully brought to life in the earlier films. »
