Sylvester McCoy has been cast in the Lord of the Rings prequel The Hobbit
Movie Parts 1 and 2. Sylvester will be playing Radagast the Brown in the
movies. Filming is currently in progress in New Zealand.
The director of the Hobbit, Peter Jackson, is a huge fan of Doctor Who and even owns Sylvester McCoy's original Doctor Who costume! We hear you!
About the fabulous Sylvester McCoy
He was discovered by Ken Campbell and became part of the Ken Campbell Roadshow. Ferrets were his speciality and really, when you think of ferrets down your trousers, you think of Sylvester McCoy. (Though in the Ken Campbell Roadshow he was known as Sylveste McCoy) He was also very good at hammering nails into his nose.
His most famous television role as the Doctor in Doctor Who occurred from 1987-1989 but he reprised the role in the 1993 special Dimensions in Time and again in the 1996 telemovie, officially handing the reigns of the Doctor to Paul McGann.
As he was, in the minds of many fans, the Doctor from 1987 until 1996, the 7th Doctor character that he helped create was used in many comics, books, audios and toys, making him one of the longest serving Doctors. (In 2005 Paul McGann became another of the longest serving Doctors for similar reasons, even though he only appeared in one official TV movie, as copius books, audio dramas, comics and toys followed. Both Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann were officially current Doctors for 8 years 9 months each.)
Sylvester frequently appears at conventions and is the consummate guest, not only having plenty of stories to tell but also plenty of tricks to perform.
