Here’s a photo of the Wizard Radagast the Brown. He was only mentioned in the Hobbit book, but it looks like he’ll have an actual role in the films. In The Lord of the Rings, Saruman used him to help capture Gandalf, locking him up on top of the Orthanc tower. It is also Radagast who accidentally helped Gandalf escape. There’s somebody you want on your team.
Sylvester McCoy (Dr. Who) portrays the homeless-looking wizard. I don’t even want to ask why they call him the Brown. Dirty!
And tomorrow, September 19th, a new Hobbit trailer will be made available.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters on December 14, 2012.
