In an exclusive update from Showblitz (Variety), word on the street is Bret McKenzie (pronounced 'Briit'), one half of the famed TV duo in Flight of the Conchords, will star as Rivendell elf Lindir in The Hobbit.
This seems like a bizarre casting choice at the outset, but we've no doubt the young actor has more than 'Foux Da Fa Fa' floating around in that talented brain of his. The Hobbit is currently in production in New Zealand.
