Tom Bombadil is NOT in the Hobbit... heh...

And according to insider sources, Lees work (The Voice Of Saruman) was cut because of pacing... It woulda been a lousy way to start the third movie, a long conversation between Gandalf and Saruman... so PJ cut it... and he's said it'll be back for the Extended Ed. DVD...

"For those of us who know how and like to read, Tolkien's prose is anything but dreary!"

I'll argue that, but not here... Cause I agree with Peter T. "The films are superior to the books."
