They're putting Legolas in the Hobbit now?

That's very weird. I'm not actually much of a Tolkien purist (half the time I can't remember how to spell the man's name!) but it does seem odd.

On the plus side, it ought to bring back the fangirls. :-)

    Well, there's definitely a reasonable way to give him a cameo; there are any number of nameless Wood-Elves he can sub in for. Now that I think of it, that could actually add up to quite a bit of screen time. The only problem is if they try to give him a starring role.

    I didn't know that he WASN'T in it. I have actually, very little interest in the Hobbit, or the Trilogy and have never seen them,OR read them.

    I know, I know, this makes me a heathen. I DID write a paper on the Trilogy in my senior year of high school, saying that Tolkien stole all his ideas from the Nibelungen Lied, and got an A+ though.

    Well, they might slot him in for Thranduil? Wasn't he in the Hobbit?

    Kind of like how they used Arwen for Glorfindel's ride.

    Honestly, it's been a while since I read the book so I can't recall.

    They could do that, but I think there's room for both Legolas and Thranduil in the story. Especially once it gets to the Battle of Five Armies.

    Poor Glorfindel always gets it in the shorts. In the Ralph Bakshi LotR, they substituted Legolas in for him.

    Based on the way Legolas was treated in the movies, he'll probably be the one to kill Smaug with the arrow, while hang-gliding on one of Gandalf's eagles and making out with Arwen's hotter sister.

    If Gimli appeared, he'd probably slip on a banana peel into a waiter carrying a tray of cream pies, all of which would fall on his head. Then his pants would fall down.
