Return of the cast
If Peter Jackson ever decides (and has the time) to make a film version of The Hobbit, he has the backing and blessing of his LotR cast. “People want it so much,” says actor Billy Boyd (Pippin). “There was talk of us playing our characters’ relatives. I’m sure we’d all make ourselves free for that.” Cast members including Elijah Wood (Frodo) have expressed interest in buying communal property in NZ to help Jackson cut down on-set costs.
