Looks like the Seventh Doctor is heading for Middle Earth. Sylvester McCoy, best known for his past role on Doctor Who, has confirmed after many rumors that he has been cast in Peter Jackson's upcoming Hobbit films, the Doctor Who News Page reports.
"Sylvester McCoy has told fans he has been cast as Radagast the Brown... McCoy was speaking at the Armageddon Expo in Auckland yesterday. It is understood that McCoy had meetings in Wellington with Jackson and co-producer and co-writer Philippa Boyens last week, where he was offered the role, but that no contracts have yet been signed."
This had been the rumor for so long it doesn't come as a huge surprise, but it is nice to see so much movement on the project over the last few days. Still, keep in mind that even though he's saying it's the case, it sounds like nobody's signed any papers yet. But I'm guessing that's about all that's left after all the talking about it he's been doing lately. Opinions?
