The second half of the upcoming series of “The Hobbit” being directed by Peter Jackson, starring Luke Evans, Hugo Weaving and Evangeline Lilly is set to be released in theaters December of 2013 and has already began the early stages of production and filming. The movie is being filmed in New Zealand and is in need of extras, stand-ins, photo doubles and “size doubles” throughout filming.

Anyone hoping to be in the film who is not a resident will be required to have tourist visas and between the age of 18 and 30. Auditions for roles will also be held in LA, NY and London. All talent have to submit their contact information along with a head shot immediately to the casting department in order to be considered for the shoot. Open roles for featured talent, extras, and stand ins are available. All talent have to be comfortable working for long period of time if booked. If casting directors are interested in having you meet with the director and booking yourself then they will call you in for an audition. Talent of all ages are needed.

  12. Hi, my name is Alex. I’m 5’8″ and a 16 year old Canadian citizen. I have very dark brown hair and brown eyes. I have been in a few productions and have an understanding of acting and being an extra in film. I work hard, i’m deticated, and very flexible. Also I will work for free and pay all expenses myself. Thanks.

  13. It would be an honor to work with this cast & crew! It has been my dream for a long while now to work on a movie with this magnitude. As an actor with theatre training & experience, I might have too much emotion. I’ve taken one “acting for the camera” class and I had a very powerful presence. Always have. My only camera credits include indie films from Idaho. I studied acting at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, and now I need income to help pay off student loans! Thank you for your consideration.

    25 year old white female, 5’6″ tall. Secretly Elvish.

  14. Hi,my name is soraya.Ihave always wanted to be an actor,so hopefully i will get to cast in the THE HOBBIT MOVIE,because i’m funny and i can also sad ,scary,evil face scenes but i will gave my best shot.So thanks for reading this thank you.

  15. My name is Sanela, I’m 20 years old.Long dark hair, dark brown eyes, a Mediterranean tan, and I speak Serbian.

  16. Hi, my name is Kathy and I’m so happy to see the Hobbit will continue! I might be considered the non-conventional blonde, for I’ve never been a fan of blonde stereotypes. It’s not just about the blonde hair, the red lips, or the vintage dress. It’s much more than that. It’s about attitude, and breaking the mold of the conventional. I can be delicate and tough, beautiful and fearful, sweet and sour… whichever the role needs best. And I love it.

    Like many, I’m very passionate about music and acting. I have experience with modeling and photography, acting and film direction, as well as stage performance and musicals. However, although many would prefer getting involved in more popular roles, my favorite thing will always be acting out serious roles. I love challenges and I take things very seriously. I love getting in character and conveying an amazing feeling to the audience, so I’d really love to have this opportunity to do so. Thank you so much and I hope to hear from you soon.
    all the best,
