Elijah Wood Cameo in The Hobbit?
I’m really starting to wonder about what’s going on with Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit. Deadline is reporting that Elijah Wood has been spoken to regarding a cameo appearance in the Lord of the Rings prequel.
The J.R.R. Tolkien story is already being trashed if there’s any truth to the rumors about Orlando Bloom reprising his role as Legolas, and now Wood might be making an appearance? They might as well bring Viggo Mortensen back as Aragorn and rename the movie, Lord of the Rings: Part Four.
I expect Ian McKellan to be back. Gandalf actually took part in Bilbo’s adventure that led him to the ring. While I don’t remember if Gollum was in the book, I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch for Andy Serkis to be returning, but just the idea of bringing in LOTR characters for no other reason than to milk the popularity of the first trilogy is an insult to fans of the original story. I know movies tend to be different from the books they’re based on but how far is too far?
I loved Lord of the Rings and I was really looking forward to The Hobbit, but I will definitely not be watching it if Wood comes back as Frodo. Instead, I’ll keep my fingers crossed that someone eventually makes a good movie based on the novel and simply ignore what seems to be turning into nothing more than a collection of LOTR cameos.
