Peter Jackson has announced that Rob Kazinsky has left The Hobbit:

“I am sad to report that Rob Kazinsky, who was cast in the role of Fili, is having to leave The Hobbit and return home, for personal reasons. Rob has been terrific to work with and his enthusiasm and infectious sense of humour will be missed by all of us. I should say that Rob’s departure will not affect ongoing filming of The Hobbit, nor will it impact work done to date, as we had yet to film much of Fili’s storyline. At the moment we are shooting scenes featuring Bilbo without the Dwarves, which will give us time to find a new Fili. I’ll keep everyone posted with updates as they come.”

    Shane Richie? Since they seem to want bad soap actors!

    Sorry to hear about Rob’s health problems, best luck to him.

    For a new Fili I think Clive Standen is best suited fot the role, he is already trained in fighting and riding skills and knows Richard Armitage.He also has a similar build to Rob.

    The only problem may arise is fitting in with him filming the Camelot tv show.
