Alright, enough puns already.  This is partially about Luke Evans, but not as “Bard the bowman”.  Regardless, my thanks to another bowman, @eviebowman on Twitter for alerting me to this wonderful clip of a score of Hobbit actors promoting the New Zealand International Arts Festival (Feb 24 – Mar18) by reciting a famous soliloquy in Hamlet. It is supposedly one of the first ever “crowd created” speeches of Shakespeare.  More info here on scoop.co.nz.

Hobbit folk who participated in the video include:

Stephen Fry
Jed Brophy
Andy Serkis
Bret McKenzie
John Callen
Stephen Hunter
Peter Hambleton
Luke Evans
Graham McTavish
