It was known that Luke Evans joined that cast of Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit’. Now, Benedict Cumberbatch also joins the cast to give his voice to the dragon named Smaug, which is close related to Evans’ role. Benedict Cumberbatch is well known for his titular role of the BBC series, ‘Sherlock’.

In the ‘Sherlock’ series, he has appeared opposite to the Hobbits’ Martin Freeman. Peter Jackson has divided his upcoming flick ‘The Hobbit’ into two halves. One is being subtitled as ‘An Unexpected Journey’ and the other being ‘There and back again’. However, depending on how closely the screenplay reflects the novel, the dragon Smaug may appear only in the second half.

Apart from the Dragon voice, it was rumored that Benedict will also be voicing another role of ‘Necromancer’. In ‘The Hobbit’, Smaug is the dragon who guards the treasure horde that Bilbo and the dwarves set out to raid. However, the role of Necromancer is mentioned briefly in the book version of Hobbit.

Last month, at the 2011 BAFTA Awards, it was rumored that Benedict Cumberbatch has been rumored for the role. Benedict makes his appearance soon on the big screen in the ‘War House’ of Steven Spielberg.

Including Luke Evans and Benedict Cumberbatch, the cast include Martin Freeman, Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, Ian Holm, Stephen Hunter, James Nesbitt, Lee Pace, Ken Stott, Jeffrey Thomas and others.

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ will make its way to the cinemas in December 14th, 2012 and ‘The Hobbit: There and back again’ will be arriving on 13th December 2013.
