Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis Return To Middle Earth!

Last week we reported that Elijah Wood would reprise his role as Frodo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s prequel to the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, The Hobbit. Now two more cast members from the original trilogy will reprise their roles.

Deadline reports that Andy Serkis will once again portray Gollum! Once again Serkis will perform the motion capture parts of the deranged creature.

THR is also reporting that Ian McKellen will reprise his role as Gandalf!

I’m so happy that the cast is finally coming together. There has been so much trouble with this production, it’s great to see that Peter Jackson is assembling his cast.

In addition to Wood, McKellen and Serkis reprising their roles from the original trilogy are Christopher Lee as the wizard Saruman and Ian Holm as the older Bilbo Baggins.

Personally if these actors were not in The Hobbit I would have had no interest in seeing the film. Now I cannot wait to see this film. Are you as excited as I am for The Hobbit?
