Exciting news surfaced today when Peter Jackson himself announced the final addition to the cast of his highly anticipated, two part adaptation of the beloved fantasy classic The Hobbit. Bill Connolly, an English born actor best known for his role in The Boondocks Saints, will play the dwarf Dain II Ironfoot, a character who most likely won’t appear until the second part.
Connolly’s many acting credits include The X-Files: I Want to Believe, The Last Samurai, and Muppet Treasure Island. Does this news get you excited for The Hobbit, or are you indifferent about who is cast, as long as they do a good job?
