Hugo Weaving signs on for The Hobbit

The iconic elf lord is back on board

Hugo Weaving, now as ubiquitous to good sci-fi/fantasy as the absence of Michael Bay, is definitely returning to Middle Earth.

According to Sir Ian McKellan’s blog, Weaving is reprising his role as the elven lord Elrond, who featured in all three of Peter Jackson‘s Lord Of The Rings films, for The Hobbit.
