The Hobbit roster is filling up with outsized dwarves. Courtesy of a press release from Warner Bros., it's now been confirmed that James Nebsitt will be playing Bofur (as we told you before) and Adam Brown has been added to the cast as Ori.
Here's a little of the official statement:
Nesbitt will play Bofur, a disarmingly forthright, funny and occasionally brave Dwarf. "James's charm, warmth and wit are legendary as is his range as an actor in both comedic and dramatic roles. We feel very lucky to be able to welcome him as one of our cast." said director Peter Jackson.
Newcomer, Adam Brown will play Ori, another of the Dwarf Company which sets out to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the infamous dragon, Smaug. Jackson comments, "Adam is a wonderfully expressive actor and has a unique screen presence. I look forward to seeing him bring Ori to life".
Only three more dwarves to be announced and we'll have the full set.
