Sir Christopher Returns in The Hobbit

January 11, 2011 at 4:44 pm by xoanon  - 

From Sir Christopher Lee’s Official Site: Slowly but surely, Peter Jackson has managed to secure the return of the majority of the major stars from The Lord of the Rings franchise for his soon to be shooting prequel, based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit.

Sir. Christopher Lee had been in talks to reprise his role as the wizard Saruman and it now looks certain, providing that he is in good health, that he will be appearing in the movie.

  1. I would love to see Sir Christopher return, but he doesn’t seem in the best of health.

    Here’s hoping…

    I don’t suppose you have a higher res picture of Sir Christopher, do you?

    Good to hear he’s back! =)

  3. Gwindor says:

    Great news! I really hope Mr Lee keeps his health, for the filming and for a long time after as well!

  4. Zaithrum says:

    Ojalá se confirme oficialmente. Sólo quedaría Cirdan y Elrond para tener completito el Concilio Blanco.

  5. Brandon says:

    Best casting news yet!

  6. Katara says:

    Since when saruman makes an appearance in “The Hobbit”? That’s new to me! Please, Mr. Jackson, don’t change the book just for the reason of integrating some actors from LOTR!

  7. Mike says:

    YES!!!! :)))))

  8. Dex says:

    Please read “The Silmarillion”

    He just put up a couple youtube clips and yeah, at a superficial level, he looks frail, but then he rattles off all the projects he’s been working on. The guy is amazingly busy.

    he want to be voice of Smaug not sure about saruman

  13. Serai says:

    And the appendices to LOTR.

  14. Someanna says:

    Saruman’s role in White Council wouldn’t require any great physical challenges. Those scenes are mainly about (spoilers! –>) tension between him, Galdalf and Galadriel.

  15. Hobbit-feet says:

    Saruman is cool! It would be great if sir Christopher comes back.

  16. ArisuLively 4red says:

    Saruman was not originally in the “Hobbit”, or at least I do not remember him being talked about in the novel. I am still glad to see that he might possibly be the movie.

    I want them all back…in the second movie

  19. mithrandir says:

    cameo at best, and that is fine. A White Council meeting is all that is really required of this venerable actor. I think it’s a great thing to have hime back, especially since he was a bit disgruntled with some of his footage falling to the editing room floor in ROTK.

    Now and forever Saruman will be christopher Lee. One of the greatest acting performance of the trilogy

  21. Enna says:

    Well, even if he is in ”The Hobbit” I think he will be VERY GOOD. He is one of my favorite actors……….
