Bret McKenzie Joins 'Hobbit', Sends FanFic World into Turmoil

April 5, 2011

Good news for Flight of the Conchords fans, as co-star Bret McKenzie has reportedly signed to play an elf named Lindir in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit. The problem with this news? Bret McKenzie was already briefly in Lord of the Rings (see: above), and insane internet peoples have named that character Figwit and set up a crazy fan site for him! Whuh oh! What will they have to say about this!? Considering hasn't been updated since 2008, maybe not so much. If nothing else, though, look for a marginal increase in the street value of your autographed Figwit Topps card.
