THE HOBBIT: First Look At Luke Evans As 'Bard The Bowman'

As any Tolkien buff will know, Bard plays a very significant role towards the end of The Hobbit, but we had yet to see so much as a glimpse of actor Luke Evans in character as the Laketown bowman, until now. Check out some BTS images after the jump..

The Welsh actor - who has had supporting roles in Clash Of The Titans and Robin Hood among other things - recently revealed that Bard will have a significantly larger role in Peter Jackson's movie(s) than he did in the book, which to be fair, wouldn't exactly be difficult! Big thanks to Celluloid And Cigarette Burns for the pics, pay em a visit at the link below.

The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers.

Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever…Gollum.

Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities … A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters December 14th.
