One of the guys arguing for a split of the money with the dwarfs anyway and looks after the dwarfs and Bilbo when they turn up.
Saw that guy Conan in Game of Thrones and felt very sorry for the horse he was jousting on. Seems a good actor and bloody strong.

The last major past of the Hobbit films has been cast. Luke Evans, last seen in Tamara Drewe and soon to be seen the the new 3 Musketeers and Immortals, will star as Grim the Bard.

:oops: Sorry haven't been keeping too much of an eye on this forum recently. Yeah the Master of Laketown is a fairly prominent character in The Hobbit but the Alfrid part for his servant's barely there if at all (although plausible enough for a role). Stephen Fry'll make the most of the character's smarmy devious ways though so I think it's a great piece of casting. :D I heard about that Barnes Wallis screenplay too - that sounds quite interesting in fact :P

I'm glad they've got Conan to do Azog - he's that rarity in Tolkien's world a fairly well-defined baddie although he's not in it for too long as a speaking part as such. No doubt there'll be a beefed up part for him at the end of the second film though :twisted:
