Jedward: The Littlest Hobbits

If you thought you’d heard the end of X-Factor comedy double act John & Edward, you’d be wrong - very wrong: rumours have circulated that the pair could play a pair of dwarves in the much anticipated movie adaptation of J.R.R Tolkien’s The Hobbit.

The Sun are reporting that representatives of producer Peter Jackson have approached Jedward to play wee men Fili and Kili in the movie: ‘Peter is keen to see if Jedward have any acting ability. He needs twins for these parts and they have a perfect look for the film’ said the newspaper’s insider.

He added: 'but the characters have very prominent roles. They are the youngest dwarves and are sent out scouting a lot. The big question is whether Jedward could settle down on a major shoot because they are so excitable and hyperactive.'

Visionary, Guillermo del Toro will direct the epic. But can he direct the twins?
