USA Today has released a slew of brand new images from Peter Jackson's upcoming The Hobbit trilogy. Wanna know what the coolest part is? We're getting a rather up close and personal look at Doctor Who's Sylvester McCoy's wizard Radagast the Brown.
Janet Fielding is probably best known for playing companion Tegan Jovanka to Peter Davison's Fifth Doctor. She's been diagnosed with cancer and, because Doctor Who really is like a big family, Davison is getting some folks to help out. Some big name folks, in fact.
Gandalf and Saruman aren't the only wizards walking Middle-earth. A third staff-wielding magician, Radagast the Brown, will make his big-screen debut in Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy, and he'll be played by the legendary Doctor Who star Sylvester McCoy.
Sylvester McCoy, aka the Seventh Doctor (you know, the one with the big red question mark umbrella), has recently said that he'd love to return to Doctor Who for the show's 50th Anniversary bash—but NOT as a former Doctor.
We've known for awhile 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.
