Another group of actors has been added to the cast of Peter Jackson‘s two-part adaptation of The Hobbit, and it includes a familiar face.

It’s being reported that Cate Blanchett will return to the role of Galadriel, the Elvin Lady of the Wood she played in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The character never appeared in J.R.R. Tolkien‘s Hobbit, but as it goes with adaptations, Jackson has decided to use her in some aspect of the story.

Of Blanchett’s return, Jackson said “Cate is one of my favorite actors to work with and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have her reprise the role she so beautifully brought to life in the earlier films.

Other newly cast actors include Ken Stott (King Arthur, Charlie Wilson’s War) as a Dwarven Lord named Balin, Sylvester McCoy (Doctor Who [1987-1989]) as a wizard named Radagast the Brown, and Mikael Persbrandt (Day and Night, Everlasting Moments), who will play a shape-shifter, Beorn.

The new additions are rounded out by Ryan Gage (Outlaw) as Drogo Baggins, Jed Brophy (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Return of the King), who will play a dwarf named Nori, and William Kircher (Out of the Blue) as a dwarf named Bifur.
