Bret McKenzie returns to Middle Earth

One of Owl Pellet’s most popular posts – ever – highlighted Bret McKenzie’s role in Lord of the Rings. Well, rumor has it that he’ll be back in The Hobbit:

According to Variety, director Peter Jackson has set aside a role for his fellow Kiwi, and this time McKenzie’s character will have an official name and everything!  McKenzie will play Lidir, and Elf of Rivendell.

And even more exiting?

The Hobbit: Part 1is scheduled for release December 2012; Part 2 follows in December 2013.  Martin Freeman stars as Bilbo Baggis [sic]; Andy Serkis, Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, and Cate Blanchett will reprise their roles from the initial trilogy.
