“We are currently looking for slim men 17-30 years and between 165cm – 178 cm or 5’5” -5’8” AND slim women 17-30 years between 165cm – 173cm or 5’5” to 5’8” to play ELF extras,”

It’s now been changed and is asking for:

“We are currently looking for MEN based in the Wellington region aged 30 plus, medium – large build, 5’8″ – 6 foot (175cm – 183cm) Character faces, beards, missing teeth – all good”

    I was one of the lucky few to be selected to come in for the official casting call this morning! It was only available between 10AM – 11AM and we filled out a form and they took three pictures of you, and then you were off on your way!

  2. Faramond says:

    Their casting dwarf extras.  Wouldn’t say beards were ok otherwise.

  3. Guest says:

    Unlikely to be hobbits given the possibility for beards. Lake-town men?

  4. Madeye Gamgee says:

    Those sound like dwarves, not hobbits!

  5. Gotdelight says:

    5′ 8″ – 6′?? Doesn’t sound like they’re looking for Hobbit extras to me. Men of Dale extras? Even Dwarves (though they’re also supposed to be short)?? Or something completely different PJ is planning…

  6. Darkside438 says:

    Sounds more like dwarf extras to me!

  7. Otaku-sempai says:

    “Character faces, beards, missing teeth – all good”

    That sounds more like Men of Lake-town (or even Dwarf-extras) than Hobbits (who tend to be beardless).

  8. Azogsbane says:

    How can they be looking for hobbits if they say beards are ‘good’? Hobbits don’t have beards. It sounds more like they’re looking for lakemen.

  9. gandalf_rules says:

    Sounds like they are building a Dwarve army to me.

  10. Rob Hogue says:

    Hobbits w/ beards? 

    I’m guessing Men of Laketown…

  11. Watertowercat says:

    Wouldn’t this make more sense for Dwarves?  Beards and large builds don’t sound much like Hobbits to me.

  12. Bearded hobbitses? Naah… isn’t it rather the men of Lake-Town?

  13. Anonymous says:

    Sounds like goblins!

  14. Monster3984 says:

    I’m pretty sure they meant extras for the Hobbit movies, not actually extras that will be hobbits

    hey anyone knows if applications are still open? trademe link is off. cheers.
