Those Muppets are a demanding bunch. ;) It's a shame Bret couldn't make it but if he's still in the US, I wonder if he'll be able to attend the U.S. premiere in NYC in a few days time? :hrm:

That would be great if they could appear on the Today Show!

You can watch Bret speak elvish as Lindir in some behind the scenes footage from 12min20! :D If you don't want to watch any spoilers from the overall film, you should probably watch the video after watching the film: http://collider.com/the-hobbit-behind-t ... ge/215703/

Is it sad that I watched him say whatever he said 5 times in a row? :lol:

I'd love to see the "swagger" too. Bret's probably playing down how good he is at being an elf but it's sweet how he speaks so highly of Hugo. :)

Why do his eyes sparkle so much???? It's not fair!!!!!

We had a school disco last week and I was 'guest DJ', so we took the opportunity to dress up. It was a movie theme. I went as miss Piggy, my big man was animal and my little boy donned his elf gear and went as Lindir. He was practicing his elf 'pout' so bad :P He normally has long hair to hide his natural elf ears, but he let them out for the special occasion :P

So I've been reading that an extra scene of Bret as Lindir is featured on the Extended Edition of The Hobbit (here) and there's also behind the scenes footage. :D

Some screencaps:
