'Hobbit' casting 1 female role

TheOneRing.net Exclusive: 'Hobbit' casting 1 female role

http://tinyurl.com/yb2y43c

It is confirmed, casting is under way on the Hobbit and that is news enough. There have been rumors but now we have confirmation from a source that told us other details about casting as well. In addition to all of that, we have this juicy bombshell: They are casting one female role!

It seems likely that casting at this early stage would be for a featured role, not an insignificant bit part and we don't have further details so while we can speculate plenty - the 'Hobbit' community will do so in our chat room and on our message boards - that is all that is known. Is it for a voice actor which will be needed for creatures? Is there a female dwarf among Bilbo's companions? (After all, Tolkien never said explicitly that all were male!)
