Dick Heads: The entire cast of the Hobbit

The cast of the Hobbit

He may be playing a dwarf in The Hobbit, but you can probably tell that wasn’t typecasting for Richard Armitage, given how tall he is in comparison to the rest of the cast. See how many you recognise in this slightly blurry cast photo: I’ve spotted Sylvester McCoy, Andy Serkis, him off The Almighty Johnsons, him out of Being Human and Peter Jackson. Can’t see Sir Ian, Christopher Lee, Martin Freeman, Cate Blanchett, him off The Matrix or Liv Tyler (is she even in this one?), but maybe they’re hiding behind that plane.

Don’t forget to write a haiku if this inspires you in some way.

Got a picture of Richard Armitage’s head, preferably wearing a hat? Then leave a link to it below and if it’s judged suitable, it will appear in the “Dick Heads” gallery.

I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe.
