Sylvester McCoy Confirms He Is The Hobbit's Radagast The Brown

Sylvester McCoy Confirms He Is The Hobbit's Radagast The BrownBleeding Cool scooped back in August that Sylvester McCoy, best known as playing the seventh TV incarnation of The Doctor in Doctor Who, was up for the major role of the wizard Radagast The Brown in the upcoming Hobbit movies.

And it was a casting he was happy to confirm at the Armageddon Expo convention in Auckland, New Zealand this weekend. While contracts have yet to be signed, he has been offered the role.

David Tennant, the Tenth Doctor is also expected to have cast, but a role has yet to be confirmed. Though there is something a bit Goblin-Kingy about the man, isn't there?
