Ha! We may even have conversed on one of those Snape threads at Pearl's.

I bet you'd be more interested if they let Elijah Wood have a cameo as a random hobbit in the movie, though, wouldn't you? ;)

Actually, not. I see no reason to ask him back to play a role in The Hobbit. I think sticking him in there--or any of the LotR actors that wouldn't have a real "Hobbit" role--would be a distraction, taking away from the impact of the new film, which should be telling a fresh story, and not be "old home week" for favourite actors.

I do think they'd be jerks not to get Ian McKellen, since Gandalf should look virtually the same as he did in FotR, and Ian McKellen is a *great* Gandalf. Having seen Ian McKellen on stage this fall in King Lear, I can testify that he is still fit, able, and full of fire.
