Movie news roundup: “The Hobbit” casting and more

Could any news possibly be more delightful than this tidbit: Barry Humphries, who is far better known as his very very fabulous alter ego Dame Edna, has been cast as the Goblin King in Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit.” So, do Goblin Kings greet their subjects with a cheery “Hello, possums”? Here’s just a hint of the Dame, should you be having a slow Tuesday:

In other movie news: “The Ides of March,” a political drama directed by and starring George Clooney, will open the Venice Film Festival on August 31; Woody Allen has announced that his next movie, “The Bop Decameron,” will star Alec Baldwin, Roberto Begnini, Penelope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page and himself; Warren Beatty is returning to filmmaking after a lengthy hiatus and will direct, write and star in an as-yet-untitled film to begin production later this year; and Ian McShane, last seen swashbuckling around in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” is the first dwarf cast (yes, that’s the actual headline) in the Kristen Stewart-starring version of “Snow White.”
