The Hobbit two-part movie prequel to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy has a new cast member.

Luke Evans has been added as Bard the Grim, one of the last major parts that needed to be filled.

Website reports that Evans will join Martin Freeman, who is playing Bilbo Baggins and "ring stalwarts": Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, Christoper Lee, Hugo Weaving, Andy Serkis, Cate Blanchett, Elijah Wood and Ian Holm.

Richard Armitage and Stephen Fry are new major actors for the series.

The Bard is next to rule Dale. The king of that area was killed by Smaug, the dragon.

Evans is starring as Aramis in a new Three Musketeers movie and in a film called "Immortals." He already starred in the recent remake of "Robin Hood" and "Clash of the Titans".
