Luke Evans & Benedict Cumberbatch Cast For 'The Hobbit'

Reported by Outsiders - 11:53 AM 2011.06.17
It would appear that both Luke Evans (Pictured Right) and Benedict Cumberbatch have signed for Peter Jackson-directed "The Hobbit."

Luke Evans has bagged the role of Bard in The Hobbit. Bard the Grim is a skilled archer, and the heir of King Girion of Dale. The king was killed by the talking dragon Smaug. The character plays a greater role in the second film, and is somewhat reminiscent of the action-hero exploits of Viggo Mortensen's Aragorn.

Benedict Cumberbatch had already been previously cast to provide the voice of the character Necromancer. In addition, he will also portray Smaug via motion capture.
