Flight of Hobbits?

Looks like ‘Breeat’ from Flight of the Conchords landed a prime gig. He’s gonna be a Hobbit in… The Hobbit. Duh.

Everything about that just makes sense. They are filming in New Zealand, Bret McKenzie is a New Zealander. He is totally short (not, at 6′). He has brown hair.

I guess that’s all you need really. So, I am immediately moving to New Zealand, so that I can fill all of the other qualifications to get a walk-on roll in the film.

What’s interesting to ponder about this casting, is what kind of part McKenzie will be playing. His typical jocular humor would make for an excellent side kick, although I don’t really know if any will be used.  But instead, he will be playing the part of Lindir, Elf of Rivendell. Doesn’t really seem like the right part, does it?
