Elladan and Elrohir are in!?!

April 1, 2012 at 3:13 am by Garfeimao  - 

This story was one of’s April Fool Jokes for 2012. Thank you for participating!

With the 3rd block of filming beginning in earnest this weekend, there is some surprise casting news filtering it’s way back to us. Back in December when the Trailer first appeared, TORn did a frame by frame analysis, and one of the little tidbits we identified was the Elves at Rivendell and what looks to be Elrond’s twin sons. See what was written on  Page 7 of the trailer analysis.  Word now comes to us that not only are Elladan and Elrohir in the films, but they are being played by James and Oliver Phelps, famous for portraying the Weasley Twins, which leads us to believe their roles will not just be minor set dressing. Unless, of course, this is just a bit of stunt casting, but PJ doesn’t seem overly prone to that. The nice thing about this move is that there will be real twins, two separate actors, rather than the old trick of hiring one actor and then using FX to duplicate the person. The Hobbit production will have no shortage of multiple shots for every scene with all the scale doubles they have to deal with, but having two separate actors in the roles allows for the bigger action sequences to be done and not having to worry about FX. But does that mean that the Elves of Rivendell will play a bigger part in The Hobbit? That is still one of the big questions, what with the White Council expansion and all. Stay tuned as TORn tries to sift through these snippets of news to get at the nuggets of new details.

  13. Jon says:

    fooled me for half the day until I saw the date above the story 🙂 Still not as good as the Stuart Townsend as Bard story, that one had me convinced for days afterwards…

  14. Lausus says:

    April Fools. Well done. I would prefer not to see Harry Potter cast members in my Hobbit movies.

  15. Quanah says:

    This makes my wife giddy. She just loved the Harry Potter twins. Now they’re elves! I think I saw her weeping with joy.

  16. Steven Aelfcyning says:

  18. fish says:

    What’s with the “Fool” category? looks slightly ominous given the date.

  19. Asautter says:

    Obviously this is an April Fool’s joke. Nice try guys!

  20. Elf Mirkwood says:

    If Elladan and Elrohir are truly in The Hobbit, Sir PJ will have made my life.  However, I highly doubt that the Weasley twins will show up in the LotR cast.  Curse you,, for appealing to my love for the forgotten elves.  *collapses in a puddle of tears* 

  21. Albertomv says:

  27. whats the matter with you >:(  think i am not the only one looking forward to seeing them in Rivendale as they were cheated from the trilogy, not funny!  

  28. You had me until I got to the Weasley twins part. Then I knew it was an April’s Fool’s joke.

  29. Sally Dickson says:

    As I remember it Aragon rode with Elrond’s sons ranging far and wide….never forgetting the torment of their mother in the pits of Moira. One of most memorable lines in all of LOTR
