A few days ago, HuffPo Entertainment posted an interview with Evangeline Lilly from the premiere of the third and last Hobbit installment. She has a lot of nice words about working with Peter Jackson and being fortunately typecast in kick-ass female roles.

Your grandparents probably need help shopping for you anyways - knitted socks are just not cutting ... Read More
