tres cool: Sylvester McCoy will appear in ‘The Hobbit’!

Via Blastr:

We’ve known for a while now that Sylvester McCoy has been in talks to play an important role in the upcoming The Hobbit movies. First we thought it would be Bilbo, but then we began hearing rumors that the actor was up for the role of Radagast the Brown. Over the weekend, the former seventh Doctor Who set the record straight.

Appearing at the Armageddon Expo convention in Auckland, New Zealand, McCoy happily confirmed that he was indeed offered the role of the OTHER wizard in the novel (NOT Saruman), Radagast the Brown, and that the only thing left was for him to sign on the contract’s dotted line.

What’s more:

So with rumors buzzing that David Tennant, the former 10th Doctor, will also join The Hobbit cast, perhaps as the Goblin King (we’re actually thinking he would be perfect for the King of the Mirkwood Elves—and Legolas’ father—Thranduil), The Hobbit could end up having TWO former Time Lords on board.

Are rumors still buzzing about David Tennant? He would be awesome as an elf…
