Lee is coming to the UK this November as a part of a global celebration of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug movie. The live presentation featuring actors and Peter Jackson is going to happen in five cities around the globe – London, Miami, Los Angeles, New York, Wellington.

CNN Anchor Anderson Cooper, who serves as special host for the entire event, will be based in New York, where he will welcome Richard Armitage, the film’s Thorin Oakenshield, and Orlando Bloom, who returns to the role of Legolas from The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Evangeline Lilly, who joins the cast as a new Elf warrior, Tauriel, will be based in Los Angeles. London will host new cast member Lee Pace, the film’s Elf King Thranduil; Luke Evans, who joins the cast as Bard the Bowman; and Andy Serkis, a member of Jackson’s filmmaking team and the first film’s Gollum. Peter Jackson will join the celebration from Wellington, New Zealand (where it will be Tuesday, November 5, at 11:00 am).

Lee and Luke Evans are going to be joined by Andy Serkis (Gollum) and James Nesbitt (Bofur) in London, UK. The event will take place at Odeon West End, where fans will get a chance to meet the stars, catch an exclusive first look at footage from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and participate in a live Q&A.

If you can’t attend the event yourself, you’ll be able to watch it live on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/thehobbit)

Additional cinemas will be set up in select locations worldwide where fans can gather and watch the events unfold live. Check here if there’s any close to you. Peter Jackson promises he’d going to have a special “thank you” for those that make an extra effort and show up in the cinemas.
