Sir Ian McKellen is seen on the set of The Hobbit this week in Wellington, New Zealand. McKellen tweeted the pic and said: "THE HOBBIT is being filmed in 3D. Even wizards have to wear the glasses."
ZZ Gandalf anyone?

The New York Times had a Hobbit-related correction in the paper last Sunday. Some online are calling it the nerdiest correction of all time. What do you think?:
"An item in the Extra Bases baseball notebook last Sunday misidentified, in some editions, the origin of the name Orcrist the Goblin Cleaver, which Mets pitcher R. A. Dickey gave one of his bats. Orcrist was not, as Dickey had said, the name of the sword used by Bilbo Baggins in the Misty Mountains in The Hobbit; Orcrist was the sword used by the dwarf Thorin Oakenshield in the book. (Bilbo Baggins’s sword was called Sting.)"
