Luke Evans Joins The Hobbit Cast

Peter Jackson has found his Bard. Deadline is reporting that Luke Evans has signed on to play Bard the Grim for The Hobbit. In the novel, the character has a small but pivotal role in the battle against Smaug the Dragon but that role could have been expanded for the movies. At this point most of the major novel roles have been filled leaving only the voice of Smaug. That role really doesn't have to be filled until post-production but Deadline says that Bill Nighy (Underworld) is the frontrunner.
