THE HOBBIT‘S WILLIAM KIRCHER JOINS THE CAST OF ROGUE WARRIOR
William Kircher (The Hobbit) has joined the cast of the science-fiction actioner Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter, which wraps this week under the director of Neil Johnson. Kircher (Bifur the dwarf in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit films) plays Dr. Johnson. Additionally, his voice can be heard throughout the movie as The Scourge.
Says director Neil Johnson, “For the first time in my career, I can truly say that the whole film is crammed with truly amazing actors, no one disappoints, but now that we have William Kircher, he is the icing on a very large cake. Tracey Birdsall and William Kircher light the screen up with an amazing chemistry. I was so enthralled watching these two acting titans butt-heads on camera that I forgot we were shooting a movie and got dragged into the scene.”
Johnson continues, “There is a scene at the end of the film where Tracey and William oppose each other and truly make for an amazing moment. I am so looking forward to having these two work together again in the future. I think the only reason we got a busy actor of William’s stature was that he really wanted to work opposite Tracey Birdsall, one of the few good looking actresses in Hollywood WHO CAN ACTUALLY ACT!!!!”
Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter will be released later this year.
