Well, you do get to see some people in costumes (thought, admittedly, they're not very generous with such pictures), for example this dwarf around 2:12 wink also, Gollum is in his costume most of the time stick out tongue

I totally missed that one guy - although you don't get a look at his makeup, which is what I should have said.

And I'm not a huge fan of Serkis' "costume," myself. stick out tongue

Cate Blanchett is there because the White Council is there.
Orlando Bloom is there because Mirkwood is there and because girls are there sitting in the audience.

So...pandering to Hollywood Bullscheiße? And/or pandering to people who can't understand the plot of the book? I have a feeling the added scenes/cameos will be so contrived and pseudo-Tolkien...I wish I was less pessimistic about these films.

Not to mention the fact that we don't know exactly who (aside from the obvious/noted) were on the White Council...we can guess, and probably quite accurately, but still...

(I detest the Hollywood crap in the other films too, btw...)

Random news: After a few days of Easter break, they'll continue with the Rivendell scenes.

(Very) lovely news: Stephen Fry will play the Master of Laketown, and Conan Stevens (currently also to be seen in Game of Thrones) is Azog. Ryan Gage, originally casted as Drogo, will now instead play Stephen Fry's servant. (Source)

Here you have your people in-costume, although I suppose it's not exactly what you wanted, either: video (starting at 4:20)

Other random news: sounds like they're currently doing the White Council scenes, since Ian McKellen mentions he's working with Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving now.

Also: Benedict Cumberbatch (currently working with Martin Freeman as Sherlock Holmes & Dr. Watson) will be in the movies (elf? Smaug? ...?).

Haha, that was ridiculous.

Also: I think I know how they're framing the story - that is, how they're going to include Ian Holm and Elijah Wood - if the casting of Bret McKenzie as Lindir is any indication...

Yes?
If it involves songs (my only association to "Bret McKenzie" and "Lindir"), then I'm quite sure the answer is No. Or what do you mean?

Well...since Lindir is an elf from Rivendell, I'm thinking that they'll frame the action of the movie(s) as being told to Frodo while he was there with Bilbo during the events of The Fellowship of the Ring.

Or, Lindir might just be in the Rivendell scenes that take place during The Hobbit. Or maybe during scenes that take place at both times...or I'm wrong, or something. stick out tongue

Yes, that makes quite some sense. It would fit very well in the context since multiple items and stories connected to Bilbo's adventure show up in Rivendell, most of them also in the movies.

The other, simpler idea would be that Frodo just reads in the Red Book, maybe before writing in his own story. However, I don't know how Ian Holm would fit in there, except to read his own written lines from the off... so maybe the frame story is rather settled before Frodo's journey (or near its beginning, such as Rivendell).

Indeed. All pointless guesswork at this time, I suppose! We'll see soon enough.

A shameless money grubbing scheme.

The Hobbit wasn't that big of a book, it doesn't need two movies.
