Sylvester McCoy To Star In The Hobbit
McCoy who was the seventh incarnation of Doctor Who is told The Argyllshire Standard that he is being considered for a part as one of the wizards.
“I am being cast in The Hobbit. We’re currently in negotiations – there are two of us under consideration. It’s not the Bilbo role, but could be bigger,” he added.
Many internet sites have speculated that the part could be Radagast the Brown, whom wikipedia describes as: “One of the Istari or Wizards who were sent by the angelic Valar to aid the Elves and Men of Middle-earth in their struggle against the Dark Lord Sauron. Radagast appears in The Lord of the Rings and Unfinished Tales, and is mentioned in The Hobbit and The Silmarillion.”
