Cradle Of Filth Frontman Dani Filth To Appear In The Hobbit
In more metal related movie news, the producers of the highly anticipated movie adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s "The Hobbit" recently revealed that Cradle Of Filth frontman, Dani Filth will be appearing in one of the movies in a small, as yet unrevealed cameo role.
"We noticed that the work of Tolkien is biggest in today’s youth culture amongst heavy metal and nerdcore hip-hop fans, so we figured we’d give them something to get excited about. We looked into the former culture a lot more and were excited to see that a band called Blind Guardian had done a whole concept album based on The Silmarillion and that the average Saxon fan looks like the lovable dwarf, Gimli, so it seemed like a good idea to include a true metal giant in the film."
Obviously, roles were hard to come by in a film featuring the phenomenal acting talents of Ian McKellen, Christopher Lee, Brian Blessed and Britain’s most beloved national treasure, Stephen Fry, which is why Filth’s role will only be a small one. "He was definitely a little disappointed not to have a big role," said the producer, "but he eventually reached the same conclusion that we’d come to, and will be delivering an eye catching performance in the Shire."
