    My guess is that it'll take place during LOTR period where Bilbo is telling the story to Frodo. That's the only way I can see it making sense to have Ian Holm and Elijah Wood back.

    So, I have read the LOTR, and I just read The Hobbit this quarter for the first time, but have never read The Silmarillion. How does that fit in the Middle Earth universe.

    Think of it as The Old Testament.

    It is a history of Middle Earth from the beginning of time until roughly 6200 years before the events of The Hobbit.

    The Hobbit Gets A Bard, Smaug Gets A Voice | CHUD.com

    According to Deadline, they finally have a Bard the Bowman: Luke Evans. I guess LOTR used up all the stock of rugged and older Northern English, because Evans seems a little young and handsome for Bard. (Are there no Sean Beans left? I always pictured Bard to be more of a Viggo/Bean type.) I haven’t seen him anything, so maybe he’s such a badass that it makes up for his youth and smoothness.

    Deadline also confirms a popular rumor that’s been floating around Tolkiendom: Benedict Cumberbatch’s top secret role is the voice of Smaug. I always did hear Smaug with a more posh voice, so I really dig this pick. I wonder if he’ll pull double duty like Jonathan Rhys-Davies, and actually appear somewhere in the film in a small role?
    Goddamnitall, why did Ned Stark have to DIE????????

    "Old Testament" is a very good analogy. It is a very hard book to read at first but, believe it or not, I've now read the damn thing 5 times. It's really a bunch of short "stories" but not much dialog...it's really a history book. If you want a simpler book the "Hurin" book that Chris Tolkien finished a couple of years ago is an expanded version of one of the stories in The Simarillion. It's pretty good.

    Has Hugo Weaving been confirmed yet for the movie????
