SCOOP: We Confirm Sylvester McCoy Up For Hobbit Role

British telly mainstay and one-time Doctor Who, Sylvester McCoy, has just quashed rumours of his casting as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: Part I. So what is his real relationship with the film? Who will he really be playing?

This afternoon we’ve been told by a 100% trustworthy source close to the situation that McCoy is in line for the role of Radagast the Brown. For a bit of context, Radagast is a wizard who, in The Fellowship of the Ring, unwittingly lures his ally, Gandalf, into a trap set by Saruman.

Will the show the off-page battle between the wizards and the Necromancer as part of the book’s expansion into two movies?

If all goes to plan, then McCoy should be heading to New Zealand November-December time. Bleeding Cool couldn’t be more excited. And Tom Baker can just go swivel.
