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.

    Sirs Ian Holm and Christopher Lee do not wish to fly given their advanced ages.

    Sir Ian's in London, working. It has nothing to do with his age. But yes, Lee won't fly to NZ, which is why his stuff was filmed in the UK.
    Freeman's in the shades, behind Jackson. Dunno where Blanchett was but she did turn up to the premiere.
    Tyler's not in this one.

    (This isn't meant to sound quite so terse. Pretend I've flowered it up a bit.)

    Oh, and while I'm still at this, we're missing at least one dwarf: Ken Stott, who's barely recognisable as Balin.

    Due to quality of the pic it looks like Eric Cantona in the red shirt. Seeing McCoy does make me smile. Everyone's spotted Elijah right?
    No Lee Pace:(
