James Nesbitt is set to appear on the big screen as the dwarf Bofur in the much anticipated Hobbit trilogy and he has been talking about some of his characters traits. James claims that Bofur is very much the dwarf version of Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney.
Nesbitt explained to Daybreak, “I'm sort of the thinking woman's dwarf, the George Clooney of dwarves [and] considered to be the optimistic one who always sees the goodness in most people.” He also admitted that he and his family had a fantastic time while filming in New Zealand.
He added, "New Zealand is a place where you can get well. There's not very much to do there apart from eat well and drink very nice wine! [My family] had a fantastic time and it was great. The girls, my daughters, when we first told them they were genuinely heartbroken at the idea of leaving, it was horrible."
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set to be released on December 14, while the second movie The Desolation of Smaug will be released on December 13, 2013. As for the newly announced third movie There and Back Again, that is set to be released on July 18, 2014.
