Hobbit casting rumors abound

I just did a little check when I saw the rumor that Sylvester McCoy (the 7th Dr. Who) had been tapped to play Bilbo. I love Sylvester but wondered if he was a bit long in the tooth now. Well, more rumors which no one will substantiate say that he'll play an older version of Bilbo recounting his adventures and who knows who will play his younger part?  Saw a blurb  with a partial casting list, including a part for a completely invented female elf lead, named Itaril, who is supposed to be a warrior falling for an unnamed elf lord -- apparently coming from Rivendell. Can you say fanfic here?  Guess this is the attempt to put some wimmin in Tolkien's world.  I was disappointed when looking at the casting list that Thranduil was not mentioned.  Wtf?   

Guess we don't know anything until they decide to announce it.
