Elf extras wanted!

"The Elven physical build is tall and slender."

They could have added...breathtakingly gorgeous. :love:

Seriously. :supz: They should get him to do a cameo. THAT would be subtle genius.

Conchord may soar from Figwit to Hobbit role
DAVE BURGESS Last updated 05:00 01/04/2011

Bret McKenzie could be going from being Figwit in the Lord of the Rings to a big-screen presence in The Hobbit.

The Dominion Post can reveal that Sir Peter Jackson is trying to tempt the Flight of the Conchords co-star to take a role in the 3-D Hobbit films now being shot in Wellington.

It would spell a remarkable turnaround for McKenzie, who had a three-second spot as a pouting elf in the first Rings film.

A fan saw him on screen, as Frodo was frantically trying to deliver the ring to Mordor, and thought. "Frodo is great ... who is that?" And from that, the acronym Figwit was born.

It spawned the tongue-in-cheek figwitlives.net website in honour of the spunky elf – McKenzie was listed as one of Who magazine's 100 sexiest people in 2008 – and an hour-long documentary called Frodo is Great ... Who is That?!!

The final Rings instalment The Return of the King also saw the return of McKenzie, as an elf escort to Liv Tyler. He got one line.

He and fellow Conchords star Jemaine Clement later recorded the parody song Frodo, Don't Wear the Ring, which featured on their hit TV series and included the lines, "Frodo, don't wear the ring/ The magical bling bling/ You'll never be the lord of the rings".

McKenzie was at Wednesday night's opening of Miramar's new Roxy theatre along with Jackson and Hobbit cast members Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen, James Nesbitt and Adam Brown.

Hobbit spokeswoman Melissa Booth did not reply to questions about McKenzie and his role in the film.

Oh, I've been quite out of the loop so I'm catching up now. So I assume that's what this tweet by The Dominion Post is about then?
Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords has arrived and signing autographs. Now posing for photos.

:D Let's hope some of those pics turn up!

I guess Bret could have been at the Roxy for other reasons, so I'm trying not to get too excited about him being in The Hobbit. :supz: :boogie: :yay: :thumb: :dance: :cheer: :nana: :adoration: :popcorn: :whitey:

I just like how they call her a "Hobbit spokeswoman", lol.

I can't stop laughing, this whole thing is so wonderfully ridiculous! :roll2: I must have received 50 google alerts yesterday alone. Impressive. Go Figwit! :thumb:

Poor Bret. :D

Well he's always had a sense of humor about the whole thing, but I would kill for his thoughts about now.

I hope someone will score a new interview. Maybe LarryP should do a follow up to this one? :lol: (you guys remember who Larry Pritchard is, right? :wink: )
