The Hobbit Height Casting Call

If you live near Wellington, New Zealand then you might be interested in the casting call for the Hobbit that ran in the Wellington Dominion Post. Found by The Noldor Blog, the call is for actors of various heights so they can pull off the various scale and force perspective needed to have a regular sized person appear to be Hobbit or Troll sized to the camera. As the notice indicates, this is a "preliminary" call used mostly to gather information and continue the unofficial pre-production work as the films remains in limbo until MGM sorts out its financial mess which is currently on track for the end of the year. With prep like this, once the greenlight is given principle photography will be able to start almost immediately. (via OneRing)
