Hi Bryan Here….

Good news everyone.  Billy Connolly has joined the cast in the role of Dain Ironfoot, a great dwarf warrior and cousin of Thorin Oakenshield.  Such good news.  Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh took a hiatus from ‘The Hobbit’ to introduce the ‘West Memphis Three’ documentary at Sundance, since they funded quote a bit of the DNA testing for the freedom of the three guys. Once back on ‘The Hobbit’, they cast Connolly.

“We could not think of a more fitting actor to play Dain Ironfoot, the staunchest and toughest of Dwarves, than Billy Connolly, the Big Yin himself. With Billy stepping into this role, the cast of The Hobbit is now complete. We can’t wait to see him on the Battlefield!”

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’, will be released by Warner Bros for New Line and MGM on December 14, 2012 and the second installment, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, bows December 13, 2013.
