Be a Hobbit extra!

If your life long dream is to spend a day wearing big rubber feet and fake hair and waiting hours to appear for 0.37 seconds in a major motion picture, get ready to be excited.

Because Guillermo del Toro, in a little chunk of video left over from his Hobbit Q&A announced that fans will indeed get a shot at winning roles as extras. There are no details yet- keep your eyes here and we’ll let you know when any contests are running – but it’s certainly exciting given that The Hobbit now seems more real than ever.
