Guillermo del Toro Says He'll Appear in The Hobbit as a Creature « FirstShowing.net:
"Although we just ran a big update from Guillermo del Toro on all things The Hobbit last week, we have yet another interesting, and pretty damn cool, update to feature today. Over on The One Ring forums (via SlashFilm), someone translated an interview with del Toro where he said: 'In The Hobbit I will play a small monster. I will transform myself in a small creature, not an important monster, just a 'background' type.'"
Wow, just like Del Toro, can't wait to see it!
