John Rhys-Davies may have a Hobbit cameo?

July 2, 2012 at 10:39 pm by Demosthenes  - 

Ages ago, John Rhys-Davies spent a few days visiting the Hobbit set while he was in New Zealand. Unlike Elijah Wood or Orlando Bloom, for well-known reasons there was no announcement that he would reprise his role as Gimli son of Gloin.

However, at a recent convention, a Reddit reader asked him point-blank about a possible cameo in the Hobbit.

At first [Rhys-Davies] denied it, but after a little pressing he smiled really big, laughed, winked, and said that maybe it was possible. His smile… his laugh… I’m taking this as a pretty big indicator that he will be involved in some small way.

Considering that in Lord of the Rings, Rhys-Davies also provided the voice of Treebeard, could it be possible that for The Hobbit he might cameo something like the voice of one of the trolls? (Highlight the sentence to see our hidden, possibly spoilerish speculation!)

    I would much rather see him on screen – perhaps as the innkeeper at the Green Dragon. After so many days shooting under heavy prosthetics I think he deserves some face time 🙂

    Nice, had no idea there was a subreddit for the Hobbit ( for those that care)

    *Yawn*…December can’t come quick enough.

  4. Eduardo says:

    He must have a cameo… John Rhys-Davies and Gimli are unique…it would be amazing…

  5. Otaku-sempai says:

    The voice of one of the trolls is certainly one possibility. I’ve speculated that we might see the company make a stopover at the Prancing Pony in Bree, where JRD might be the father or grandfather of Barliman Butterbur.

    Okay… seriously… i have it. Gimli arrives with Dain Ironfoot. in mid battle he sees a tall blonde elf prince that he has never met before named Legolas. He says to the dwarves nearby “I bet I can kill more orcs than that pretty-elf there”

    Oh for heavens sake! I was there. John was joking, that’s all. He’s NOT going to be in The Hobbit!!!
