Kiwi Actor Steps into Hobbit Breach

Suff says:

The gods are smiling on a Kiwi actor. Film director Sir Peter Jackson has announced that The Almighty Johnsons actor Dean O'Gorman will star in The Hobbit as Fili the dwarf.

Jackson said on his Facebook page that O'Gorman was "a terrific Kiwi actor, who I am thrilled to be working with".

O'Gorman, 34, will replace British actor Rob Kazinsky, who left the production last month for personal reasons. O'Gorman is one of the stars of TV3's The Almighty Johnsons, a story of Norse gods living in modern New Zealand.

The story is too old to be commented.

Will all these movies of characters in the lord of the rings universe be a dream or a nightmare that we wan't to forget about ?

probably a nightmare to some degree but I'm hopeful becuase I actually liked the books as a kid.
