Ringer Spy Dauvit the Hobbit sends along word of an article from ‘The Scotland Daily Record’. They chat it up with Billy Boyd (Pippin). Dauvit also sends along word that he knew Billy way back when:

‘Its nice to see (Boyd) start to get recognition in his own country as there has been very little reported so far. All i can say about his college days is, that he was very quiet and unassuming most of the time, though like the rest of us liked a pint and the odd practical joke. His casting is a complete and very nice surprise (even if i am hugely jealous). I hope he does very well.’
