Flight of the Conchords star Bret McKenzie is possibly being wooed by Peter Jackson to accept a role in The Hobbit, the Dominion Post has revealed in an article today.

The article did not speculate whether McKenzie would play a new role or reprise his Lord Of The Rings character, popularly known as Figwit.  That is an acronym for “Frodo is great … who is that?”, dubbed by a fan after his short appearance in the Oscar winning films.  

By coincidence McKenzie attended the opening of Miramar’s new Roxy theatre where Jackson and other Hobbit cast members were celebrating.  You can read the entire article here!  The Dominion Post

    Instead of Figwit, how about an Elf that was actually likely to be there such as Glorfindel, Galdor, or Erestor?
