What do The Hobbit and Castlevania have in common? Up until last week, nothing; but that’s all about to change! Adi Shankar, the producer of the upcoming Netflix animated series based on Konami’s popular Castlevania series, recently announced that two well-known Dwarves from Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Hobbit have been cast as voice actors in key roles for the upcoming show!
Graham McTavish, who played Dwalin in The Hobbit and The Saint of Killers in Preacher, appeared in Shankar’s announcement video to reveal that he has been cast as Dracula in Castlevania. He also reported that his Hobbit co-star, Richard Armitage (The Hobbit’s Thorin Oakenshield and Hannibal‘s Francis Dolarhyde), will voice the legendary protagonist, Trevor Belmont.
