Bret McKenzie Confirmed For “The Hobbit”

“Flight of the Conchords” star Bret McKenzie has been confirmed to be appearing in the currently in production “The Hobbit” movies for Warner Bros. Pictures reports The Dominion Post.

As previously reported, McKenzie popped up twice in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy in cameos of a few seconds apiece, and in the process earned the nickname Figwit.

Now, in the ‘Hobbit’ films, McKenzie will play an elf called Lindir, which means “song” in the Elvish dialect of Sindarin.
