& Eowyn Casting Confirmed
The casting of Eowyn and Elrond has
been confirmed by E! Online. Hugo Weaving got the
part of Elrond and Mirando Otto will play Eowyn. Images of both of these actors, as well
as short bios, will be available shortly.
According to Weaving's IMDB entry his best-known role was in The
Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. He more recently starred as Agent Smith
in the smash sci-fi flick The Matrix.
Upon studying Mirando Otto's entry, I discovered
that Miranda does not have quite as much acting experience as Weaving, but has starred in
several films, including The Thin Red Line and True Love and Chaos.
E! Online is
also reporting that Christopher Lee (Saruman), Sir Ian Holm (Bilbo Baggins), and Brad
Dourif (Wormtongue) have arrived in New Zealand.
