It may be for six months or we could even give it a year. I’ve done a couple of castings… I’ve done an audition for ‘The Hobbit’. That starts shooting in New Zealand in July so we’d be based there for quite a while instead of LA if it happens.” The Sun also reports that Irish duo JEDWARD gay were invited to audition for ‘The Hobbit’ after being spotted on the X-Factor.
