Stephen Fry has revealed that director Peter Jackson has his character eating testicles in The Hobbit.
Fry plays "a very gross figure", the Master of Laketown, in the two-part sequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
He told Digital Spy: "He [Jackson] was a shlock, gore director of the highest quality and wit. My character is an opportunity for sheer grossness.
"He had me eating testicles... gross appetites. I mustn't give too much away but I've got a bald cap and then on top of that a really bad combover wig and this wispy moustache and wispy beard and horrible blotchy skin and disgusting fingernails."
Fry added: "And generally speaking a really unappetising piece of work. And a coward to boot and very, very greedy."
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is released on December 14, 2012.
Classic sci-fi films...
