Stephen Fry joins The Hobbit
Stephen Fry has become the latest British actor to join the cast of Peter Jackson’s currently-shooting Hobbit.
The legendary author/actor/presenter has signed on to play the Master of Laketown, which is one of the hamlets that Bilbo and the Dwarves come across on their journey.
“We are thrilled to confirm that Stephen Fry will be playing The Master of Laketown,” Jackson wrote on his Facebook page. “I’ve known Stephen for several years, and we’re developing a Dambusters movie together.
“In addition to his writing skills, he’s a terrific actor and will create a very memorable Master for us.”
Well now I will for sure see this.
I was on the fence before.
This was such a good show!
I wish that it had more than 3 series to its credit!
I was worried it wouldn’t be until like November or December. What a great way to start a Monday.
