It’s that wondrous time of year when we look forward to the holidays, feasts, and presents. In addition to the presents you can win during our annual (and awesome!) Advent Calendar Giveaway this year, we’d like to think that bringing you all the Role Call news every week is a gift, as well. This week, we bring you movies on Blu-ray, red carpet interviews (with animal guests, too!), George Clooney at Downton, a US series featuring a Slytherin baddie that has been added to a UK fall lineup, a “Harry Potter” ginger gracing the cover of a major film magazine, and a poster of a certain blonde Fairy Godmother. If we could wrap it up in a bow and hand it to you, we would! Take a look at this week’s Casting News!

Read on to hear my thoughts on the release of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” (Extended Edition). WARNING: Contains mild spoilers of new scenes.
