Be A Hobbit Extra

Del Toro gives fans the chance to appear in The Hobbit.

Good news for Hobbit fans everywhere! Guillermo del Toro had a Q&A session with MTV and revealed some rather interesting casting news.

Replying to a user question “Who do I have to kill or sleep with to get a role as an extra?” Del Toro remarked:

“Oh my god, well that’s a good question only in that it’s asked often,” del Toro said, chuckling. “[But] I believe as the film comes to happen, in either of the two films, [fans] have a good chance of being there.”

“Sleep with a lot of people if you can! That’s a very good piece of advice. But don’t bribe anyone. It will be wasted money,” del Toro said, laughing. “We will set some rules and some contests and some fans will definitely get the chance of being extras. Go and apply for those roles!”

No details of the competition (if it goes ahead) have been confirmed but in preparation we  suggest you get yourself some hairy rubber feet and a cape; (leaves of lorien are optional)
