Gollum Reading The Hobbit

One of the many reasons to anticipate Peter Jackson’s upcoming feature adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit is getting to see Andy Serkis, back in character as Gollum/Smeagol. Those in attendance of a recent celebration to acknowledge the 75th anniversary of Tolkien’s novel had the opportunity to hear Serkis do a reading of The Hobbit, and of course, that included doing the voice.

The video below is a news report from the celebration at London’s Fulham Palace Gardens, and includes a couple snippets of Serkis doing the reading, and making sure to get into full vocal character to read the Gollum parts.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arrives in theaters December 14.
