The Hobbit  
So, obviously I'm excited about The Hobbit. I've tried to convince my husband to see the midnight release, but he is being stubbornly resistant for some reason. (Something about having to go to work at 6:00am the next morning, idk). I've seen the trailer(s), of course, and it looks amazing! I've even thought to myself "Wow, the actor playing Thorin Oakenshield looks familiar. Something about the eyes, but I just can't place him." And then "Damn, he sure has a lot of charisma."

Did I go look it up? No. Did I read anything, anywhere that told me who was in the movie (other than the returning cast from LOTR and of course, Bilbo (Martin Freeman)? No. It took me googling for the complete score (which is already available for pre-order) and then googling again to make sure the cast version of Misty Mountains Cold was going to be on it before I finally saw the name and realized OMG Richard Armitage is playing Thorin Oakenshield!!

I must live in a cave. 

No wonder he has such great charisma! Not only is he in the movie, but he is singing the song that gave me chills just listening to it in the trailer! One of my favorite actors is starring in what is sure to be one of my favorite movies! I will have it immortalized on blu ray (or whatever) for forever!! And he's singing

Did that sound weirdly obsessive? Sorry, I'm totally having a fangirl moment. I'll be over here, waving my hands and silent-screaming in true fangirl overload fashion.

Bwah, I should've just read LJ and echoed your flail post before writing my own.
