Evangeline Lilly – The Hobbit
Slightly elfin actress Evangeline Lilly will stir up some of the same confusing feelings Liv Tyler did by joining the cast of The Hobbit, Peter Jackson’s upcoming adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s plans for a super-profitable movie franchise. Lilly will play an all-new character, “the Woodland Elf, Tauriel”
Following this Facebook announcement Jackson said that she would not be romancing Orlando Bloom’s Legolas, so certain unusual women out there can continue to write their fan fiction in peace. Jackson also welcomed Barry Humphries, who will leave behind the billowy dresses of his Dame Edna alter ego for a more form-fitting motion-capture suit to play the Goblin King, “in much the same way Andy Serkis created Gollum”.
