Billy Connolly joins the Hobbit

#TheHobbit #LOTR

This is easily the casting choice of the hobbit that makes the most sense.

Billy Connolly as a Dwarf. Not a regular dwarf though, Connolly will portray Dain Ironfoot, a great dwarf warrior, and if you've ever seen him in Boondock Saints, you know just how baddass Connolly can be.

In a few other LOTR / The Hobbit news, here is a video of Brett McKenzie, one half of Flight of the Concords, talking about his Oscar nomination and his new part in the hobbit.

Also here is a german video.....  It's got some weird stuff in it (Safe for work), but if you skip directly to 10:50, you'll see a big piece on Wellington, New Zealand, where the Hobbit is filmed.

Some noteworthy timecodes:

11:29 - My mother lives on that street

12:31 - A terrible person to interview

13:15 - I got freaky with a girl there when I was 15.
